Review:

The Lost Prince of Samavia tells a story of country that is in a terrible civil war, and where people are killing each other all for the sake of power. The poor citizens of Samavia can only hope that their beloved lost prince will come back and make every thing right as it used to be.

Marco Loristan and his father are two traveling, poor peasants. Marco's maturity and knowledge of the world makes him anything but the average peasant 12-year-old. As Marco learns about his father and the secret party that is searching for the lost prince and preparing for him, Marco is sent on a very important mission with his crippled friend "The Rat."

Marco and his best friend have to go to each member, undercover, and utter four, but remarkably important words.

The Lost Prince of Samavia is a 342-page paperback book, whose 31 chapters are filled to the brim with adventure and mystery.

As a 13-year-old and lover of action books, I enjoyed The Lost Prince of Samavia. I would recommend it to ages 9 to adults who love a good ending and intriguing books. -- Estee Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
