A series of three teenager's fantasy books by Eric Lhomme, written in 2001 and first published by Scholastic in 2003.The Lost Island is a strange Magical Land: Not quite magic, because people go to the same kinds of schools as we do, wear the same clothes, have electricity and all that goes with it (televisions, computers, video games, cinema theaters), etc. And it's not quite a Land, because there is no guns, cars, or cops, but carts and knights instead. And magical creatures (the korrigans) and wizards as well.The reason for this is that the island once was torn away from the (real) mainland and now is stuck between our dimension (the Real World) and a pure Magical Land, the Uncertain World.The 12-year-old Robin Penmarch is taken in as an apprentice to the sorcerer Quadehar because he shows an aptitude for magic. Soon afterwards, Robin receives serious threats from the Uncertain World and its evil Overlord, the Shadow. The Shadow lusts for Robin for unknown reasons. Robin and his four friends soon have to do incursions in Uncertain World in order to resolve mysteries.The Lost Island is a Magical Land with modern comforts but no disadvantages from the Real World (such as pollution). Where else will sorcerers ever use computers? Add Robin's hilarious Five-Man Band and fascinating magic lessons, and you have one of the rarest fantasy books from a Romance-language country.The three books are Quadehar the Sorcerer,The Mystery of Lord Sha, and The Face of the Shadow.Not to be confused with The book of Stars
Dance of Romance: Amber and Robin had three parties where they could dance together. The second time Robin notices that "At the end, he found she started to look at him strangely." It helped Coralie and Romaric, too.
The Dragon: Eusebe of Gri, the monastery of Gri's Wizard in chief. At first he seems like he just doesn't like Quadehar very much, but then he tried to jail him for only that reason. The truth is that he's a traitor in the Shadow's service.
Luke, I Am Your Father: Subverted; the Shadow tries to trick Robin with that revelation once. He even get the Big "NO!" response. But it was Blatant Lies Subverted again when Robin believed he was Lord Sha/Yorwan's son until a spell revealed he was not. Played straight as Robin's real father is actually his mentor Quadehar; and his real mom is the witch knight Kushumai.
Magic A Is Magic A: Inverted: Quadehar gives many details on how to invocate the runes alphabet in order to construct gladrs ( spells), runes that are based on constellations shapes.
Magical Land: Uncertain World. The Lost Island is a subversion: magical with Real World's best (technological) parts.
Relationship Upgrade:At first Robin thinks that Amber is the worst teasing chick of Lost Island, and Amber keeps on bothering him because she's annoyed by his weakness. Then they start to care for each other, until the First Kiss at the end.
Agatha's feelings for Robin are at first hate and bullying that goes with it, then crush on him after he saved her,and finally friendship.
