When I read books like this, I'm always in awe of the sheer amount of imagination that authors must have in order to create such captivating stories, and Lond doesn't disappoint in this sequel as its full of magical creatures, quests, and new companions. In fact, this sequel to My Sparkling Misfortune (The Lakeland Knight)was just as much fun as the first! Lond brings back our favorite characters, as well as adding some new ones along the way, making for a spectacular, witty read. Poor Lord Arkus must decide whether it's worth it to perform heroic deeds in order to help his Sparkling, Jarvi, but once he's decided, we're off on another fabulous quest, this time dealing with witches, mermen, sea-creatures, and even magical berries. Lond never ceases to amaze me as her story takes on many twists and turns, creating an highly imaginative tale that the whole family will enjoy. I highly recommend this series to all. Four stars!
