Several hundred years before, the (fictional) nation of Illyria and its king Vartan were conquered by the invading Zentans of Turkish extraction under their king Ahmad. By the late 1800s, the country was divided into the ruling Zentans and the native Illyrians who had been reduced to peasantry. Their ancient epic, the Illyriad, talks about a great treasure and a magical army. Dr. Holly had been studying the Illyriad before his death, and Vesper wants to carry on his work, so she and "Brinnie" sail for Illyria where they wind up in the middle of a revolt against the Zentan King Osman by the Illyrians under their leader who calls himself "Vartan." They hire a dragoman named Nilo and with Osman's permission head for the region of Alba-Collia to begin their search. In the process, they are captured by rebels, then put in prison by the Zentan governor of the region, and finally face some very powerful enemies. Will they find what they seek? Will they even come out alive?
Lloyd Alexander is perhaps best known for his Prydain Chronicles, a series of five novels, one of which, The Black Cauldron, was a Newbery Honor book (1966), and another, The High King, won the Newbery Medal (1969). However, he wrote many other books. The Illyrian Adventure, narrated by Brinnie, is a very exciting story, and even though it is about a teenage girl, I think that there is enough rough and tumble adventure that most boys would enjoy reading it too. Some might say that the ending is a little too predictable, but there is nothing objectionable in the book, and I liked it. It concludes with the following statement. "The dear girl, I fear, may be contemplating some alarming, disruptive, perhaps dangerous project. In which case, I would naturally do all in my power to keep her from any such rash or foolhardy enterprise. Unless she wished me to accompany her." There follow five more books in the "Vesper Holly" series: The El Dorado Adventure (1987); The Drackenberg Adventure (1988); The Jedera Adventure (1989); The Philadelphia Adventure (1990); and The Xanadu Adventure (2005).
