Arthur continues his quest to find his grandfather and save the Minimoys in Arthur And The Forbidden City - the latest book by Luc Besson. Find out more about this fantasy-adventure novel right here.

Royal Love

When we last left Arthur at the end of Arthur and the Minimoys, he was five inches tall and was trying to find his long-lost grandfather in the vast underground world of the Minimoys. In the sequel to that first book, Arthur continues his quest while falling in love with the brave Princess Selenia - the fearless heiress to the Minimoyan thrown. While Arthur navigates his way through the magical kisses of Selenia, he must also help her save the Minimoys from destruction at the hands of the evil Maltazard the Cursed.

Lost Child, Lost Treasure

As Arthur's heart is going crazy for a somewhat prissy princess, his distraught parents are busy digging up the back garden, looking for their 10 year-old son. How could he possibly have just disappeared from the backyard? Will Arthur's parents ever see their son again? Will Arthur be able to save the Minimoys from being drowned by the demented Maltazard? Will he ever find his long-lost grandfather and the hidden treasure, which will save his grandma's house from being seized by a dodgy landlord? The answer to all these questions lies in the dark corners of Necropolis, the Forbidden City.


The Bottom Line

Arthur and the Forbidden City is an exciting adventure through a cool underground world filled with evil rulers, sweet princesses and hidden rubies. It's a faster read than Arthur and the Minimoys and there's bit more action as Arthur is forced to prove himself as a worthy husband to Selenia and a brave warrior who will fight to the death for the Minimoys. If you haven't read the first book in the series, you may find yourself a little bit lost in places - so definitely give Arthur and the Minimoys a read first. An animated movie based on Arthur and the Minimoys, featuring Madonna and Snoop Dogg, is also coming out in January 2007, so stay tuned for plenty of Minimoyan mayhem in the near future.

Would You Risk Your Life to Kiss a Princess?

  • For sure - a kiss from a princess is worth it.
  • Not a chance - no princess is worth my life.
  • If she was really, really hot.
  • If she had lots and lots of money.

Love it or hate it, the crazy theory of Flat Earth is gaining a lot of popularity and movement world wide. What's your opinion? Remember, regardless of what anyone says, keep an open mind and don't bash. I'm curious to see why people believe the way they do, or if they have facts and evidence to support their claims. So, do you believe the Earth is flat....or spherical?

No, AlphaT won't be missed. And he totally isn't tearing up right now.  Thank you. I know it sounds unoriginal, but getting to know all of you has been an absolute privilege. Each of you made my time here worthwhile, and it's nice knowing that I've done the same for you all.  Goodbye!

Now it's time for my special paragraph... Which probably isn't as colorful or wonderful as everyone else's... S is for Sister... You're like a sister to me, and I couldn't imagine my life without someone like you. N is for Neon... You glow so bright, like neon lights. You make everything seem happier. O is for Outgoing...  W is for Wonder... F is for  L is for  A is for  K is for  E is for  A is for  N is for  G is for Graceful...  E is for  L is for  K is for  I is for Intelligent... T is for  T is for  E is for  N is for  (Gotta finish it later, WB...)

You know, I agree with your theory. I don't think I can put it into the well-thought and eloquent wording you did, but as vast as the human mind is, each individual one has its limits. Everyone clearly thinks different of what is wrong and what is right - Hitler did think that his actions were a good thing, didn't he?  The most evil thing I could think of certainly isn't KW appropriate. Then, expanding on that further, I figured that murder is probably one of the worst things a human can do. But then that got me thinking: what  if it's the other way around? Or, what if there is something even worse than both of those? Everything else that came to mind probably, most likely, isn't a KW kind of topic - and I'm sure my brain can't even come up with everything else disgraceful. Therefore, I don't think I can determine which is worse, as there are many things I find putrid - and some I can't even think of - and they're all quite horrible. So then the most good thing I thought of was angels. They're pure and holy, right? What can be even greater than that? The Lord, of course. To someone who believe ins Him, who or what is more just and righteous than that? This got me wondering what those who do not believe in Him would say. Charity work, perhaps? A newborn child who is yet to have experienced the awfulness of the world? An innocent domestic animal whose perception of the world is far different from ours? This was definitely really thought-provoking. I might have to think about this further sometime in the future.
