Overview

The search of a daughter for her father is but the beginning of this robust fantasy adventure series, Prospero's Daughter, from L. Jagi Lamplighter. For five hundred years since the events of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Miranda has run Prospero, Inc., protecting an unknowing world from disasters both natural and man-made. Now, in Prospero in Hell, Miranda's father has been taken prisoner of dark spirits in a place she could only guess. Piecing together clues about her father’s whereabouts and discovering secrets of her shrouded past, she comes to an inescapable conclusion she has dreaded since Prospero was lost.

Prospero has been imprisoned in Hell, kept there by demons who wish to extract a terrible price in exchange for his freedom. As the time of reckoning for Miranda draws near, she realizes that hundreds of years of their family’s magic may not be enough to free her once-powerful father from the curse that could destroy them...and the world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this epic sequel to 2009's Prospero Lost, Lamplighter continues the Amberesque adventures of an ancient family caught up in matters of mythic significance. The immortal sorcerer Prospero is missing, sucked into Hell after one of his plans went awry. His far-flung, quarrelsome children have come together for the first time in years to face down the ever-present threat of the Three Shadowed Ones, who hunt them for the legendary magical artifacts they possess. As Miranda, Prospero's ever-dutiful eldest child, struggles to keep her siblings in line, she's repeatedly thrown off guard by a series of unsettling revelations. The only false note is a pivotal scene where a monster rapes a woman to steal her power. The story is convoluted and occasionally overwrought, but the rich imagery, fast pace, and masterful use of mythology make this a real page-turner. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
Praise for Prospero Lost

“Featuring glimpses into a rich and wondrous world of the unseen, this is no ordinary urban fantasy, but a treasure trove of nifty ideas and intriguing revelations.”

—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Lamplighter plays fast and loose with Shakespeare in this modern-day fantasy filled with homages to both the Bard and John Milton.”

Library Journal, starred review

“This edgy postmodern Secret History straddles urban fantasy and slipstream while effortlessly ringing the changes on classic SF tropes. Lamplighter is a writer to watch.”

—James Mallory, bestselling coauthor of The Phoenix trilogy

“A truly original take on Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Should appeal to fans of Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber series.”

—Kage Baker, author of In the Garden of Iden

    The marvelous continuation of the Prospero's Daughter trilogy.

    The marvelous continuation of the Prospero's Daughter trilogy. The
    revelations of Prospero Lost are complicated as still more mysteries
    come to light, and new knowledge casts fresh light on older discoveries.
    Everything from sibling rivalry to hamadryads enliven their adventures
    before they learn a final thing to send them off a mission of grave importance.

    Overall, another thinly veiled religious message.

    Unfortunately, this book was a pretty big failure in choice to me, and a waste of money. I greatly enjoyed the first books blend of magic and history, bringing forth these old characters into a modern setting. However, in this continuation of the series, the author decided to drop the historical setting for a more modern and pathetic message of, worship god, cause otherwise bad stuff happens to you. After a horrible tramatic experience, the mane character is basically put through a shaming period by her siblings, before turning to god and miraculously overcoming the horrors she just suffered. Please, don't waste your time with this.

    more from this reviewer

    L. Jagi Lamplighter provides another strong Tempest thriller.

    The immortal sorcerer Prospero remains missing (see Prospero Lost) ever since one of his plans backfired. He is lost in hell. He would be surprised and proud of his adult children as they have come together after years of estrangement.

    However, even with this sudden sibling camaraderie, Prospero's offspring must cope with the constant threat from the Three Shadowed Ones. These devious predators seek the magical artifacts held by Prospero's offspring. The oldest Miranda tries to keep her brothers and sisters united, but they remain fractious while they grapple with a series of stunning shockers. Still she investigates what happened to her sire and learns somewhat of his life since the events of five centuries ago immortalized by that hack.

    Following up on Prospero Lost, Miranda leads the title character's offspring as they struggle to team up even as their immortal world seems to be heading to hell in a broken hand basket. Fast-paced throughout, fans will enjoy the sibling rivalry while wondering if Prospero will remain lost in hell forever. His centuries' old children acting like battling little kids fail to get their act together; although Miranda is kicking butt for them to shape up now. L. Jagi Lamplighter provides another strong Tempest thriller.
