A thrilling adventure wrought with passion and determination takes place in Tale of the Vanished Princess by Timothy Swiss. Zake, the eldest son of Sir Marticus, sets off in search of his betrothed Princess Alania along with his brothers. However many challenges await them. The pair had been torn apart when Alania was kidnapped and both were misled about the fate of their betrothed. With each believing the other to be dead, they find themselves on new paths. When the two are finally reunited, neither is the same as they were before. Can they overcome the hardships and challenges in Subterrania or will evil prevail?
Tale of the Vanished Princess by Timothy Swiss is a wonderful sequel and holds up well after the first book. Focusing on the remaining children of Sir Marticus, particularly Zake, we are taken on an adventure into Subterrania. The scenes described by Swiss are as vivid as ever and the lore within this world is extensive. I thoroughly enjoyed the expansion of the world Swiss has created as well as the accompanying characters. I particularly loved the change within Princess Alania; you see so much growth in her character with each hardship she faces. Swiss has the uncanny ability to portray his characters in such a relatable way even though the story is set in a different era. The struggles they face and the emotions they feel are so clearly conveyed and allow you as the reader to become immersed in the story. This book is definitely worth reading and I highly recommend it.
