Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mysterious island unknown to the rest of the world, in nineteenth century America.

Its citizens: a colorful and outrageous band of capitalists, inventors, hucksters, and freemen, who jealously guard the island's fantastic wealth from the prying fingers of the outside world, even as they attempt to conceal its captivating secrets from one another.

The ingredients are gathered for The Lost Colony, a boiling concoction of slavery, patriotism, religion, and greed.

A warning, however, to readers young and old: this is an addictive new series you've stumbled onto. The Lost Colony's self contained world teems with endearing and memorable characters, whose foibles speak to America's own historical struggles with its demons.

Skillfully crafted, richly illustrated in almost edible color, and always hilarious, The Lost Colony may soon feel like home...and you might never want to leave.

Review:

"[A] witty, sophisticated, candy-colored adventure....Teens as well as many adults will find a lot to enjoy and think about in this brash, fantastic tale — and they will look forward to other volumes in the planned series." Booklist
