Land of Loss

Author: K.A. Applegate
Title: Land of Loss1
Series: Everworld (book 2)
Number of Pages: 185
Publication Date: 1999
Genre: Teen Fictrion/ Fantasy
Synopsis: "David, Jalil, April, and Christopher have been pulled into a world that defies everything they once believed. Wolves the size of elephants, beings who consider themselves immortals, mythological gods. Nothing is like what they're used to. And it doesn't look like they're going to find a permanent way home anytime soon. It all started with Senna. Now she's missing. David and the others don't know if she's in Everworld. They don't even know if she's alive...in the human sense..."

Land of Loss picks up right where Search for Senna left off, but this time the story is told from Christopher's point of view. He's not necessarily my favorite character from the book, but he does bring a different perspective to the book. Land of Loss see David, April, Christopher, and Jalil heading off to battle with the Vikings against the Aztecs and their god Huitzilopoctli. Gosh, he has a long name.
Christopher is by far my least favorite character. It could just be that I don't really like characters that crack poor jokes trying to lighten the mood at in opportune moments, like, when their about to die... again. Or characters that make snide barbs, even if the character their "insulting" deserves it. Plus he always seems to be trying to pick a fight with either David or Jalil and it gets kind of old.
Although, occasionally he comes up with a funny one-line like "Giant murdering Beanie Babies".
Favorite part of the book, when they ran across Merlin. Yep, you heard me right I said Merlin, did I mention they also run across a dragon. And if that's not enough, they finally find Senna.
Land of Loss is a great follow up to Search for Senna.

Land of Loss earns 4 out of 5 pineapples.
