The final book in the trilogy starts with some strange goings-on in an unspecifed location in the Prologue, then moves to more familiar territory as our guinea pig heroes, Princelings Fred and George, wait at Castle Buckmore for the arrival of Princess Kira from Dimerie in a flying machine. George’s absorption in his power plants is overtaken by his enthusiasm for this new form of transport, while Fred continues to woo Kira, who is here to act as bridesmaid as her sister weds Prince Lupin. After the wedding they set off on a routine visit to Castle Marsh, where Fred is now Crown Prince. Diverted by an accident on the way, they arrive at a strangely quiet castle in the middle of the forest.
From then on, Kira starts acting strangely, and Fred is deeply upset. Kira returns to Buckmore escorted by George while Fred takes a more relaxing trip back to the forest with a friend from a neighbouring castle. What is the secret of the Lost City? Are the old-wives’ tales of a civilisation ruled by females where no male dare set foot true after all? Will Fred and his friend escape with their lives? How many times can Princess Kira be kidnapped in one story?
The path of true love runs anything but smoothly in this tale of love, bravery, cruelty and loss.
Readers’ Favorite said: The Lost City, Book Three of The Princelings trilogy is a great read for those who love fantasy with young male protagonists. The plot is new, interesting, and will engage your mind in the story. A great work was created by the author with this trilogy.
