Product Description

Product Description

The Princelings of the East is a trilogy relating the adventures of unlikely heroes Fred and George. Two innocents abroad, they solve problems caused by unintended consequences, commercial greed, and blind prejudice—and still find time to engage in troubled love affairs and nearly blow themselves up with their own inventions.

In the third book, The Princelings and the Lost City, Fred has made a commitment to his true love, Kira, but must win her father’s approval. George, meanwhile, is near to fulfilling his destiny, but gets sidetracked by the arrival of a new flying machine. A simple journey to introduce Kira to their home castle turns into a case of kidnap, mistaken identity, heartache, and the discovery of a totalitarian society hidden in the forest.

The Princelings series is a fantasy adventure for good readers age 10 and upwards, that combines the charm of The Wind in the Willows with a world reminiscent of Anne McCaffrey's Pern. It will be enjoyed by animal lovers as well as those who enjoy an imagined world where power struggles, self-interest and prejudice can be overcome by hard work, friendship and a little bit of talent.

HASH(0x9d311ee8) out of 5 stars Action-filled mystery in the Kingdom of the guinea pig Princelings Dec 4 2013
By WLP Shadows - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was my fourth foray into the magical kingdom of the Princelings and I was happy to renew my acquaintance with some old friends. Intrepid guinea pig siblings Fred and George find themselves embroiled in yet another hazardous adventure when they stumble across a seemingly uninhabited and abandoned castle. They are keen to solve the mystery, but then events take a sinister turn as Kira, Fred’s lovely fiancée, is snatched right from under their noses and an unknown lookalike takes her place. Why? What on earth is going on in this long-lost fortress? The plot thickens …

The answer turns out to be rather surprising, and I certainly won’t give the game away here, but Fred and George eventually uncover the somewhat unpalatable truth. The only thing I would say is that the implications of what has been taking place in the lost city may not make this book suitable reading for younger children. From a personal point of view, I was pleased that this story tied up some loose ends for me by explaining the origins of the character of Humphrey, whom I’d met in a previous adventure - now it all made sense! And I also began to understand more clearly the system of tunnels linking the separate kingdoms, which I’d found a little confusing before.

With The Princelings and the Lost City Jemima Pett has created another tale filled with wonderful characters, intrigue and excitement, not to mention George’s new use for Strawberry Juice … to power flying machines! As ever, this latest episode in the series is beautifully written and I have to mention the adorable little sketches drawn by the author at the beginning of each chapter, which certainly add to the appeal of these charming books.

A sinister city, a secret society run only by females, capture by bandits and sneaky impersonations! What more does a story need? Well, besides Fred and George, the incomparable Princelings from Marsh Castle, and an airplane that runs on strawberry juice. The third book in the Princelings of the East series has a tight plot, just enough suspense, and a happy ending. Editing and language are as always top-notch, and the plot is fun and generally believable (once you engage in the willing suspension of disbelief necessary to buy into a world of guinea pigs that runs on strawberry juice, of course).

This book may verge a little onto YA territory rather than MG, though it is completely clean and there is little violence. The less-savory aspects of the culture of Castle Arbor are never directly stated, so it is likely that younger children will miss the implications, but they are there. I would not have hesitated to give it to my boys when they were the right age (being teens, they no doubt can now find or invent eyebrow-raising implications anywhere they want).

More to the point, the book grabbed me within a few pages, and I soon reached the point where I didn't want to stop until everyone was safe! I lost a little sleep with this one because I just had to finish.

Yet another great addition to the world of the Princelings, and I heartily recommend it!

We pick up our story with George recovering from his injuries, Fred trying to win Kira's hand in marriage, and Prince Lupin getting married to Princess Nerys, Kira's sister. The power plant project is progressing smoothly and Fred is hard at work thinking of ways to improve Castle Marsh, ways that would make full use of the flying machine Miles and George were working on.

When Fred, George and Kira stumble upon an apparently deserted castle called Arbor on their way to Castle Marsh, they decide to explore it, resulting in Kira being kidnapped and an imposter put in her place.

I found this book more interesting than The Princelings and the Pirates, not least because it starts to explore sexism and male privilege in a very natural and practical way, which I think is excellent. Pett doesn't just look at it in a one-sided manner, but looks at the excesses of both feminism as well as male chauvinism. Granted, things in Arbor are over exaggerated - I'm not sure if this should be for kids aged 10; whilst Pett is delicate and doesn't state things very explicitly, I don't recall if these are things that a 10-year old would understand? Then again, kids mature so fast now that they might probably think Pett is being prudish. Hm.

Pett is in top form with several heart-tugging scenes scattered throughout the story and an exciting race against time.
