New quotes for Prospero Lost in today!


Misty Massey  -- author of Mad Kestrel:

"Prospero Lost is a delicious treat of a novel!  A beautifully original handling of a classic tale, Miranda's enthralling quest to find and save her father, the renowned wizard Prospero, is fraught with danger and surprises, taking her to the ends of the world and beyond.  Lamplighter deftly blends the elegance of a fabled era with the urgency of the fast-moving modern world, resulting in a story that leaves the reader breathless and hungry for more. "


Mindy Klasky -- author of Sorcery and the Single Girl:

"L. Jagi Lamplighter has woven a romantic tapestry in PROSPERO LOST, 
deftly folding in threads from Shakespeare, traditional mythology, and 
contemporary culture.  From the wondrous magic of a phoenix lamp to 
the chilling danger of a chameleon cloak, Lamplighter creates a 
sophisticated magical background for her engaging characters.  Her 
work is most striking when she depicts the very real costs for 
immortals -- memories lost and obligations found in a family of often-
fractious, always-powerful siblings.  Readers of Shakespeare will feel 
as if they're meeting old friends in new settings after years of 
separation; lovers of literature will simply embrace an imaginative 
fantasy, well-told."

Kage Baker -- author of The Company books:

"A truly original take on Shakespeare's Tempest. Should appeal to fans of Zelazny's The Chronicles of Amber series."

Damn, I was going to make the Zelazny comparison! *scribbles out blurb, starts over* Glad you posted these. They're great--I have my work cut out for me! ;-)

The short story this novel came out of was actually a character sketch for an Amber roleplaying game...so the Zelazny influence is quite deliberate...but thank you for thinking of finding something else to mention. Several quotes that all mentioned Zelazny might look weird. ;-)
