About this Book



The third book in a Shakespeare-inspired fantasy trilogy is filled with magic, demons, and more than a little trouble.

Prospero Regained is the final book in L. Jagi Lamplighter's Prospero's Daughter trilogy. The entire series is an impressive feat of fantasy writing that challenges the accomplishments of such bestsellers as China Mieville, Philip Pullman, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Possibly most wonderful of all, the author is female as is the main character. Miranda Prospero is as tough, resourceful, and brave as she is beautiful, spiritual, and romantic.

She is more than 400 years old, thanks to the magical Water of Life that keeps the entire Prospero family in a state of near immortality. She is the CEO of Prospero, Inc., a family business that uses magic for the good of mankind, but she is also a motherless daughter torn between two lovers and incapable of disobeying her father. Of course, Prospero is the dreaded magician of Shakespeare's The Tempest and Miranda is his beloved daughter.
