Another 5 Star Rating. This one is from Jack Magnus. I was honored to be reviewed by him for my first book, Surviving the Improbable Quest. Well, he came back for more and loved it. Check it out.
Review Rating: 5 Stars

Anderson Atlas’s young adult fantasy novel, Return to Lan Darr: Heroes of Distant Planets, Book 2, can be read on its own, but I strongly recommend reading the first book in the series, Surviving the Improbable Quest, beforehand. That first book is an example of modern fantasy at its best, and this one builds beautifully from it. The author has built not one, but a number of distant planets that can be reached through the power of the Hubbu pollen, and, so far, each of the planets the reader gets to travel to is intriguing and worthy of exploration. I loved seeing how Allan continues to expand his abilities and regain his perspective after the life-shattering car crash that orphaned the former swimming star, who had dreamed of adventure, and left him in a wheelchair. The adventures continue and now under his own power! Atlas’s plot is exciting and fast-paced, and the new places and beings Allan encounters are marvelous indeed. After reading the first book in the series, I expected great things of Return to Lan Darr, and somehow Atlas exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Return to Lan Darr: Heroes of Distant Planets, Book 2 is most highly recommended.
