This book was AWESOME!!! It has everything... happiness, sadness, friendship, romance and most of all adventure! It is about good vs evil and has morals, which in todays world is becoming nonexistant. So it is refreshing to read a book that has it. The characters are so likeable and when reading you feel like you are there living the adventure with them! I will not give anything away so you have to read the book to find out what adventures they go on!! One thing I will say is don't be fooled by the age level for this book for although it was written for the younger crowd ALL ages will enjoy it! We are all young at heart! Great job Ken Winters. I'm looking forward to another adventure from you!!!

I enjoyed this book a lot. Some unique characters, a talking bear, a beautiful princess and Davey, a teen with strengths and flaws I could relate to. The struggle vs. the land of Necrus feels genuine. Check this out. You'll be glad you did!

Yessiree Bob, it's a fun, interesting book with some unusual characters: Old Man Bundiggle of the Trading Post, Snuffles the Bear, Bert the Cook, Princess Alisande, William of Conklintown. First love and moral decisions with the classic fight between good and evil make this book one that every parent should make available in their home. Lots of pertinent discussion topics!

THE LOST CROWN OF COLONNADE is reminiscent of both "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Hobbit" with its other-world setting, talking animals, and Christian theme. Ken Winters' voice and style is much like Tolkein in "The Hobbit" - he inserts humorous "author comments" that keep the reader immersed in the illusion of his Colonnade world while keeping up with modern attitudes. Fourteen year old Davey Johnsen has suffered from a physical handicap for most of his life. His parents' wealth provides him with all sorts of gadgets and games but what he really craves is their love and time, and perhaps a few friends as well. One day he gets sucked into another world, Colonnade, where he is no longer restricted by his ineffective legs. In Colonnade, Davey is strong and able to run, swim and even do battle. Which is a good thing because once he meets Princess Alisande and joins her with five other companions in a quest for the lost crown of Colonnade. Along the way they must sneak past the foul soldiers of the King of Necrus, find their way through an underground maze inhabited by Ravers, and then it gets difficult. As the adventure unfolds, Davey and Alisande are drawn to each other despite being from different worlds. THE LOST CROWN OF COLONNADE is the type of novel enjoyed by pre-teens, young adults and grown-ups. No matter the reader's age, the story is interesting whether for the action/adventure, budding love story between Davey and Alisande, or theme of good vs. evil and the strength of love on all levels.
