It's a great lesson for the teen readers, and allows for further adventures of the friends we've grown to love. Great fighting scenes, a tiny bit of romance, and good clean fun. One person found this helpful. I agree with other reviewers that this is a fun and exciting story. I would like to complain about the physical book itself. The typeface that is used on the paperback copy I received is very tiny.

Granted my eyes are quite a bit older than the target audience for this book, but I don't think I have ever seen printing this small in a paperback book. I can understand saving paper and not wanting to make the book too "fat", but the page formatting could have easily been modified. Anyway, enjoy the story, just be sure you have a good light to read by.
One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This book is like a very, very, very tired Disney movie. There are brief glimpses of originality, but the story mainly consists of stereotype characters in a very predictable plot. There are much better fantasy books out there. This book was a book club read from the teen book club at my local library. I was not sure what I was getting into when I received it; however by the book summary on the back of the book, it sounded entertaining.crypricalect.tk/orgullo-gay-valencia-2020.php
Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools
The story is a classic fairytale with setting and creatures from a fantasy. Sebastian Darke who starts on a quest with his buffalope to the kingdom to apply for the job of the court jester. His father was a great jester and Sebastian hoped to fill father's large shoes after his father's death. He is not funny. Along the way he picks up a few odd characters and ends up rescuing a princess.

This act brings on a whole new mess that Sebastian and his friends have to figure a way out of. The writing of this book is easy and fast paced and spellbinding. It reads just like any fairytale but with a bit of a comical twist. I was able to read it quickly, keeping up with the humor, the antics, the danger, the romance, and everything else that was thrown into this story.
I just loved the characters in this book. There were quite a few good ones. The characters from the story include a princess, a soldier, a jester, a buffalope, and the villains. The characters are very vivid and all of a different variety. The jester is half elf and half human, the princess is human, the soldier is a little creature with a baby face, the buffalope is a talking creature between a buffalo and an antelope I would assume and the villains are from humans to Lupes.
Sebastian Darke wants to be a jester and as hard as he tries, he just isn't funny. The book does contain some of his jokes as he attempts them on his friends. Even though his jokes are not funny, I tended to laugh out loud at them because they were just that bad. I admired Sebastian's persistence. This was by far his best quality he did have some other good ones too, bravery, loyalty, and kindness.
Along the way Sebastian meets up with the soldier who joins the quest. The soldier was recently told he could not be in the guard of his kingdom because of a new height restriction. He headed out to the next kingdom in attempt to join their guard. This is the same kingdom where Sebastian is headed. The soldier may be small but he can really kick some tail.
He is pretty awesome really. Further along the way they have to save the princess on her way home to the same kingdom. The princess is a very pretty girl of 16 turning 17 in a couple of days, but spoiled and mean. I would like to say that my favorite character is the buffalope. He is quite sarcastic, intelligent, and humorous. The journey is a very short part of the book, but it is where we get to know these characters.
This is really the only point to this part.
The next part is longer and involves the villains. As with many fairytales there is treachery involved and I was able to spot it from the beginning. Throughout the story, the soldier, the jester, and the buffalope become the hero of the princess, more than once. The story did not include any surprises but I did not mind. It was simply a fun fairytale with fun characters.
It was an easy read and very enjoyable but not a lot of meat. This is part of a trilogy and I plan to check the other out the following two books. See all 10 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.

Peril seems to stalk our one time jester and his diminutive warrior companion, Cornelius, down any path they follow or, in this case, hack into being with a machete. The presence of danger is almost as interminable as the pessimistic witticisms of the third member of their trio, Max, the sentient buffalope. Philip Caveney opens up new vistas in his fantasy wor Once again Sabastian Darke, the half elf, ventures forth to make his fortune; this time into the deepest jungles in search of a lost city.
Philip Caveney opens up new vistas in his fantasy world filling this corner with primitive tribes at war, a perilous river journey, and, finally, the hidden city itself and the terrible secret it harbors. He also introduces a new romantic interest for Sebastian in the form of a tribal princess eager to fulfill the prophesies that she would marry a champion with pointed ears.
With Sebastian still enraptured his love interest from his last adventure currently pursuing her own adventure elsewhere , Caveney squeaks out every awkward moment between them that he can in this comedy of errors. This volume is more anchored by moments of serious consequence than his previous offerings, and we can see the author stretching toward more solid storytelling. Dec 05, Miss Ryoko rated it liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed it! Each book had a new adventure that was pretty different from the last. This one had the twist of the supernatural with zombie-like creatures called Night Runners, so that was neat.
And even though I was sad about it, I was happy there wasn't entirely a happy ending for all the characters. I always appreciate when authors do that. Philip Caveney is a fantastic writer. The books are easy to read and engaging, an Actual rating: The books are easy to read and engaging, and even though they are pretty hefty, it's easy to get lost in their pages.
I read all three books in about a months time. Usually it takes me a month to read one book just because I get busy doing other things and don't read as much, so that speaks to how fun these books were to read. I really loved the characters and found them all charming in their own way.
The books are basic adventure books but despite that, they have their own charm and draw in the reader. Fun characters paired up with Caveney's easy but still well written writing makes these books enjoyable and entertaining.

It was frustrating how every character managed to die but the three protagonists and the clingy female. I felt that the writer strained to establish the setting as an epic fantasy world, but couldn't keep it consistent when writing the dialogue.
Plus all the attempts to incorporate humor were lame, which is a shame considering that the main protagonist is supposed to be a talented jester.
Perhaps the writer should have chose a more fitting title for his hero. Given all those, however, I think th It was frustrating how every character managed to die but the three protagonists and the clingy female. Given all those, however, I think this was a decent attempt at writing an adventure story for young readers. The language was simple enough to understand, and there were "sweetheart" scenes all over the place--which I think the young girls would love.
I would say that the only reason I didn't like it as much is because I am a bit too old to be reading books like these, but my younger year-old sister agreed with pretty much everything I said, so Jul 08, Alejandro OC rated it it was amazing. The trilogy is now over, and it had such an awesome ending! I'm a little upset that there will be no more Sebastian Darke books, but Philip Caveney did an amazing job this time. I think this book is the most 'emotional' book of the three, I think everything that happened in the lost city of Mendip really touched me.
I really loved it! It's a great book if you want to read something with a little touch of adventure. Totally recommend the series to everyone! I love the character relationships, S The trilogy is now over, and it had such an awesome ending!
Sebastian Darke - Wikipedia
Aaron's relationship with the children of Mendip was so sad, all Aaron had done for the children I enjoyed it a lot, there's a mixture of everything. Romance, adventure, action, mystery. Berkat Aaron, Sebastian tahu bahwa pelawak sejati haruslah bisa melawak di depan anak-anak. Tapi, walaupun pada akhirnya Sebastian bisa berhasil dengan pertunjukan lawaknya di depan anak-anak, dan menikmati kekayaannya, Sebastian merindukan petualangan.
Dan akhirnya, mereka bertiga, bersama Max dan Cornelius, ikut Cornelius pulang kampung ke Golmira Jan 22, Ayana rated it it was ok Shelves: Prince of Explorers was very disappointing. It is basically a really bad rip-off of I Am Legend mixed with a boring, annoying, depressing storyline that was already going downhill by the second book. I was hoping that the author would redeem himself in this book and fix the storyline but I was wrong.
I was not impressed. Well, our hapless jester is off on another adventure, this time to uncover pirate treasure. The peril and humor blend well in this volume. Tangled in with the complexities of the plot is Sebastian's romance with a seafaring lass, while trying to free himself from a love enchantment with a willowy witch. THis isn't the strongest fantasy fiction I've run across but it is a fun diversion. Jun 11, Alysha Starkie rated it it was amazing. This book was awesome and is perfect for people who love a sense of adventure.
It is about a young elfling and his friends as they go through death trauma and fights with the impossible. Jun 25, Derek rated it liked it Shelves: This book finishes off the trilogy well. Not too different from the first two, constructionwise:
