    One thought on “The Lost King”

    1. This is a thoroughly charming tale of a king that is both lost and has lost his kingdom. Although it is billed as a fantasy story the author Devorah Fox, has written it in a matter of fact way, with lots of historical detail and good descriptions. I really liked the odd beginning of a cow in a castle and thought the story would become weirdly fantastical, but it turns out to be a dream, dreamt by the king who is lost. After that interesting start the story unfolds in a more matter of fact narrat [...]

    2. My extended review can be found on The Review Board.The cover of The Lost King doesn’t creatively do the richness of the story within its pages justice. At first glance one may perceive it as being about a farmer (due to seeing the cows) being king of his herd. Although I do understand the direction the author was going in, I would have liked to have seen something a little more in alignment with the beauty of the tale (an image of a helpful MeeYou the cat comes to mind).But I am getting ahead [...]

    3. Lovers of history and tales with historical settings will get a pleasurable read with The Lost King.As other reviewers have echoed, this story is an engrossing one with our hero, King Bewilliam, lying in an open pasture and wondering what happened to his kingdom, family, and entire life.From there we join him on his journey as he attempts to rebuild an army to take back his kingdom, forge alliances and friendships, and even confront a dragon or two :)My faves are Empress Alexandra (a heroine in [...]

    4. I found this story completely absorbing and difficult to put down. The style resembles an old fairy tale and yet, I felt immersed in the character's thoughts and confusion as he tries to remember his past. Some of it remains vague although he knows his role of king and remembers his family. He can't act the part with nothing to back him up so he starts off to find his kingdom only to traipse further away from his goal. Each contact with other people draws out different aspects of his skill and h [...]

    5. This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review: Helen Hollickfounder #DDRevs'He doesn't have a map and he knows little of the world beyond his own realm. This level of realism for anyone who lived before the advent of the railway and accurate cartography, is something of a revelation.'

    6. King Bewilliam, Ruler of the Chalklands opens his eyes to find himself laying in a cow pasture. How did he get there and why? Amnesia seems to have clouded all of his thoughts.This is how The Lost King starts. A great opening to a story.Soon after the king, knowing that in his current condition, no one would believe that he's a king, finds himself having to take on another identity. King Bewilliam becomes Robin.This book is not so much an adventure as it is a chronicle. The author does a fantast [...]

    7. Medieval mystery Overall enjoyable, this is a medieval mystery with well written characters, dialog and settings. There is a bit of fantasy laced between the lines in this very close third person tale of psychology, metal smithing, swords and dragons. Bewilliam, sounds like bewildered, (a point not missed by the author) has lost his kingdom, truly lost because he cannot even remember where it was.

    8. "The Lost King" embodies a whole new style of describing the serenity of our humanity. Devora Fox deserves acclaim for making this available to us and I hope to enjoy many more of her works.
