As the Killer Mystery Trilogy turned out to be about a private school, I'm guessing this trilogy is oging to be about sabbotoge on a sci-fi or horror movie set, or it's going to be another death threats on a reality show trilogy. You can probaily guess that I have  very low expetations for this trilogy.
I have to go with Dinosaur Dan on this one. S&S have really built themselves up a bad track record, particularly with these past trilogies. I mean, how many times can you kill the whole reality-tv-or-gameshow-host-gets-threatened-and-the-Hardys-have-to-find-out-whodunit thing before it stays dead? I don't know if I'll be able to stomach another awfully-planned trilogy about reality tv, gameshows, or amusement parks. The whole reality television/ gameshow topic used to be my favorite one for a Hardy mystery. Now, I just can't wait for it to end.

I remember back in 2004 when Warehouse Rumble was released in the Hardy Boys Digest line how people were surprised that the story was about a reality TV show, since none of the Hardy Boys-TV-Themed stories in the past had dealt with that type of TV show.  You know it was a "new" idea to the series.  And even then that was the only story to deal with reality TV, and the next story had the Hardy's finding out who had stolen a new invention.  The stories were released with a different story coming out each month. 

But with the UB's, it just feels like it is the exact same story being reprinted every two months.

Only the Digests probaby could have sold the same story two times in a row and the plot still be feasible and engrossing. I'm beginning to doubt that the UBs could sell 100 new ideas and the stories remain feasible and/or believable. >:(

According to Amazon.ca CHildren Of The Lost is apparently apart of the Lost Mystery Trilogy

http://www.amazon.ca/Children-Lost-Book-Mystery-Trilogy/dp/1442402628/ref=sr_1_139?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255479236&sr=1-139


Lost Mystery Trilogy????  Doesn't sound too promising.  Have the UB's finally Lost the Mystery in the series???

Of course, right now Children of the Lost is sitting (as of October 13, 2009) on Amazon.ca's Hardy Boys Bestseller's list at #139 ("Hardy Boys") and #84 ("Franklin W. Dixon") and it's not even appearing on the Chapters bestsellers for either "Hardy Boys" or "Franklin W. Dixon".

Thanks for the update, Tom. While I think Children of the Lost is one of the best titles of the series, Lost Mystery Trilogy is one of the worst.

Update: Book two in the Lost Trilogy is going to be entitled Lost Brother, and is due out in September 2010. This title does sound promising.

Lost Brother??? Doesn't that sound suspiciously similar to the second main plot of the Double Danger Trilogy?

Yes it does, but I'm hoping it means lost Hardy brother. Sadly, I doubt it, though...

The book is actually called "The Children of the Lost" and it's the first book in "The Lost Mystery Trilogy"- sounds pretty cool. :)
