Prince of Alasia (Annals of Alasia)
To blend in, they had to act dull and slow-witted to avoid calling attention to themselves. The Prince did not like living a lie, but he had no choice.follow site
Prince of Alasia by Annie Douglass Lima
After school hours the two friends sought refuge in the surrounding forest where they practiced their combat skills and continued their physical training. Back in the dismal attic room, they quizzed each other on geography and history and complex mathematics problems to keep their minds sharp and alert. Jaymin was getting his eyes opened to the deplorable living conditions of the poor in his kingdom. The Prince kept all his observations in the back of his mind, just in case he returned some day to rule Alasia.
I enjoyed reading this action-packed adventure. It is just the kind of story that would appeal to middle grade young people. The author successfully creates a world with just enough historical background to make an interesting world for two young boys to live in on their own. There is a reasonable amount of conflict to keep the Prince and his protector alert but not enough evil to overshadow the atmosphere of adventure.
In addition to the creation of believable circumstances, the author writes warm three-dimensional characters with dialogue that fits the historical context yet easy for a young reader to be comfortable with. I found it easy to see that their friendship would be one that would stay strong over the years ahead. While the two blended in at school, Sir Edmend disguised himself as a common merchant and scouted the countryside for survivors of the attack.
Annals of Alasia: the Collected Interviews
From time to time he snuck back into Drall to bring information to the Prince and check on him. But suspense turned palpable when it became obvious that the invaders knew the young ruler was still alive and had escaped the palace.
The military started scouring the villages for him. The boys barely escaped an attempt to search the school they were attending. Would young Prince Jaymin survive to govern his people? My favorite character in this book is Erik, the skilled bodyguard. He was wise but mischievous. He was always alert to danger yet a risk taker. He was intelligent but also street smart and a tough and scrappy fighter. His character was the perfect foil for the more serious and cautious Prince. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Smashwords on behalf of the author.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. It was interesting to delve into the characters of each book, to see "the other side of the fence". The author visits each kingdom and meets with the characters in various locations from the p I was aware of the fine reputation of this author but hesitant to read the Annals of Alasia since it isn't a genre I normally read. The author visits each kingdom and meets with the characters in various locations from the pub house to the Castle and even in a settlement in the woods.
It was a marvelous ebook about her doing interviews on the characters from each of her past three ebooks about the kingdoms of Alisha. I, too had never read a book quite like this! But she did her best to make it very interesting and easy to read. Yes, there were a few very long answers from a couple of characters perhaps. But she did try to introduce us to each of the characters in her ebooks on this series letting us get to understand each character a bit better than perhaps we may have before It was a marvelous ebook about her doing interviews on the characters from each of her past three ebooks about the kingdoms of Alisha.
But she did try to introduce us to each of the characters in her ebooks on this series letting us get to understand each character a bit better than perhaps we may have before reading the interviews.

Annals of Alasia -WOW!!! What a set of interviews this was! I liked the way she presented the variety of questions to the different people that she had interviewed and tried to make it interesting and tried to connect with each of these different types of personalities. This was a very clean reads ebook that I would recommend for say fifth graders on up as this ebook may lose the interest of those much younger or even with those who have very short attention spans,etc.
I have chosen to give this ebook five stars for all the reasons that I have already stated in the above sentences. After one has finished a satisfying book, it's only natural to say, "Is there more?

Since I loved all three books about the kingdoms of Alasia and Malorn, I naturally wanted to read these interviews. They are well organized, and each one reveals more about characters from each of the three books. My favorite interviews are the bard and the spy. If you liked Ms. Lima's books, you must read this one! And even if you haven't read the books yet, these interviews will give you a taste of what's to come and make you WANT to read "the rest of the story. Jul 08, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book follows the author Annie Douglass Lima as she conducts interviews with each of her characters from the three books of the Alasia series.
While there's not actual storyline the events flow really well and the characters act as if it's really happening. Lima also acts realistically as she interviews the inhabitants of Alasia and Malorn, both good and bad.

This is definitely one to have if you've enjoyed her other books. However her method of interviewing her characters could be use Story: However her method of interviewing her characters could be useful for other authors to get to know their characters. Nothing to worry about here. People do recount deeds of treason. Everyone has a story to tell. This book is a great companion to the three other "Alasia" books. It's incredible how the author is able to create such different, believable characters in such a small amount of pages.
The only drawback for me was that some of the questions were repetitive, and some of the answers were very long and drawn out. Other than that though, I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I'd enjoy a book of interviews.

It's a great book to read before or after you've read the rest of the series, and it digs a little deeper into the lives of the beloved characters of Alasia.
It was fun to get inside the heads of some of the favorite characters from each of the first three books of the Annals of Alasia. I'm glad I read this after the other books because even though there aren't really spoilers, I felt that it filled in many gaps in the stories where I might have wondered what so-and-so was thinking. Had I read this one first, I think I might have been a little confused. I do love this series and its characters!
