The incredible adventures through time continue for Susan, Charles and Murray in this sequel to Drift House. Susan and Charles return to Uncle Farley's house for what they are sure will be the most exciting summer of their lives, and can't wait to learn more of Drift House's secrets. But things start off much sooner than they might think when a mighty tidal wave washes Drift House out to seawith Susan and Farley on board, but Charles and the parrot, President Wilson, left behind in a tree. Separated by time and space, and beset by encounters with Vikings, Native Americans, the Trojan Horse and many other fascinating characters, this action-packed sequel is both more accessible than the first, and with cliffhangers at ever turn, even more thrilling.

The Lost Cities was nothing in comparison to The First Voyage, which was the prequel to this story. Although the writer showed good style, the story was a bit confusing and had a let-down ending. The characters were fun and well-developed and I enjoyed the epic scene in Babel towards the end.
this book is my absolute favorite book. it describes the scenes so clearly! you can imagine what the characters look like and what they are doing. my favorite characters are Iacob and Charles.
