Item description for Lonama's Map (Portals Of Tessalindria #2) by F. W. Faller...
Overview This tale of the remote world of Tessalindria comes to life in a time much like ours. Two young men in the city of Vindarill have taken to thievery in order to survive in the cruel reality of their world. In a robbery attempt gone wrong, Rindar comes to realize he has stolen one of the most sought-after treasures on the face of the planet; a copy of the legendary 'Lonama's Map.' To elude the authorities who are chasing them, Rindar and Minxa escape through one of the time portals of Tessalindria and find themselves catapulted into an age where the legends of their schooling are a way of life. It's a roller coaster ride of friendship, camaraderie, trust, betrayal and discovery, set in the ancient land of Tessamandria shortly before the great Mankar Rebellion that plunged Tessalindira into the abyss of anarchy and despair. Legend comes to life with more history of the world of Tessalindria, and more of the tapestry of the unfolding tale is clearly woven.

Is there an a million stars rating???!!! Jan 30, 2006
I have read a lot of books, including Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter, and this truly leaves them in the dust!!! I can't even put how much I love this book into words. I bought this one and got it autographed the day it came out, as I did with the first book. (Our family knows F. W. Faller.) Wow. I didn't know it was even POSSIBLE for a book to be THIS AMAZING. So what are you waiting for? READ IT!!!!!!!!!
Great Second Book Jul 11, 2004
F.W. has done it again. This book is well written and like the first held me on page 1 to page 425.
Another excellent book Jul 1, 2004
Superb. I can't really can't put more words into it. There is a lot in the book, and the amazing part of the book is in it's complex simplicity. (follow that one). You can try and figure out the mysteries of the book from the beginning, or simply let it wash over you.
Superb, Spectacular, and AMAZING!! May 18, 2004
Fallers Characters are engaging from the first page to the last, there is much action, and adventure to keep one from getting bored, this is a real page burner, one that is best read on a weekend as you won't want to put it down at night!
There are many truths to be learened, and lessons to be gleaned from the pages, I have never read anything quite like it~
Even "A Sword For The Immerland King" another gerat read, from Faller, cannot compare to the mastery of Lonama'a Map.
There is an amazing balance of intelect, and adventure in this book to keep readers of all ages engaged!
