Book Description

19 Jun 2014
Princess Katya Nar Umbriel has little left to lose. Her uncle Roland took her home, scattered her family, and forced her to abandon Starbride, her dearest love. Slim hopes and righteous anger carry Katya into Starbride's homeland to raise an army and take back all that was stolen from her. Starbride never dreamed she d lead a pack of foreign rebels against a Fiendish usurper. She holds the capital city out of love, denying any rumor of Katya s death. As the two strive toward each other, Roland dogs their every step, loosing Fiend-filled corpses on Katya s army and hypnotizing the capital s citizens into hunting Starbride down. If they ever meet again, it ll be over his dead body.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like it but I do not like your cliffhangers (No Spoilers) 11 May 2014
By B. Ronalds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would actually give this book four stars, but my criticism with the endings of Barbara Ann Wright's series holds me back from really granting it that. Those who have read the first two books know that Wright always ends her books at a high point, and personally I don't think her stories deserve it (and I mean that in an entirely complementary sense.) I'm not saying this as a disgruntled fan who doesn't like being left on the edge, though I did feel that way when I initially finished this book, which was why I waited a few days to write my review.

In my opinion, huge cliffhangers are a desperate means to keep the reader interested in a story and willing to buy the next installment, and this series really doesn't need it. The world-building and characterization are well done and highly engaging. Even without being left in suspense, I would still want to learn more. I'm curious about the countries, the politics, and the structure of the fantasy world; I care about the characters, their feelings, needs and desires. There's no need to leave me in suspense in order to keep me entertained. And there is a downside to using cliffhangers, especially when they are used repeatedly as Wright is doing. People may stop reading the series until it is finished, or drop it altogether just to avoid being left hanging; some people even resent the feeling.

It is my belief that Wright could do her talent and her stories a lot more justice by letting them end on a more subtly suspenseful note. She's leaving the last few steps of the traditional story arch out of her equation, going straight from climax to "About the Author." Instead of leaving her reader cursing at her information page and turning back to the story thinking they missed something, I think she has the talent to end it on a still suspenseful but less desperate note, one which would rather leave us thoughtful, contemplative, and curious.

Waiting on the next one. Keep up the good work. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read! 2 April 2014
By Silvery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A Kingdom Lost continues where Barbara Ann Wright's excellent first book, The Pyramid Waltz left off. It can be cumbersome to throw new readers into a continuation of a story but the author has done this very well. She also has managed to create a rich world in this Fantasy novel. Unlike many writers, the world does not become the focus of the novel. It's the characters and the story that propel the reader to the finish.

This magical world is so well developed and forms such a rich foundation in the story. The primary characters step off the page coupled to a wonderful support cast of secondary characters that are intrinsic to moving the plot forward. You want to see the two protagonists characters reconnect as the story unfolds. This is not a simple story. It has layers of interesting sub-plots and intrigue. Yummmm!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful lesbian fantasy 27 May 2014
By heather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Barbara Ann Wright is a wonderful and talented author. She makes you crave her next book. Her writing, plot, and characters are great. A Kingdom Lost is the third book in her lesbian fantasy series and I wish the next one was already out.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do I survive the wait for book 4? 23 May 2014
By Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have said it before and I will say it again: Barbara Ann Wright is a hidden gem.
There is one thing that I love more than anything about a good book: *good* authorship.
I mean when something is just "well-written". You can get good content from a ton of books, but honestly, I find that truly exceptionally skilled authors are few and far-between. I Barbara Ann Wright is one of the most skilled authors I've ever read. I place her among my favorites, coming in close with Jim Butcher behind Patrick Rothfuss. I stumbled upon this series and I am so glad that I did.

The typical lesbian fantasy novel... leaves something to be desired. Typically it's just an excuse to show off a romance that's about lesbians instead of straight people. When I found this book on Goodreads, that was really all I was expecting, but at that point I'd just read some of the best books I'd ever found and I wanted to read a "throw-away" book to help me step down from a massive book hangover. Boy was I surprised to find that The Pyramid Waltz and its resulting series was anything but that! This series is solid gold! The writing is superb, the characters are deep, relatable, loveable and amazing, and the world is rich enough to keep me pestering the author's blog for more info! I can't get enough!

I highly recommend you take a look at The Pyramid Waltz (book 1) and continue from there. I'm certain by the time you've reached A Kingdom Lost, you'll be right here with me pining for book 4.
