Publisher's Summary

The fate of Artimé is at stake - and an unlikely alliance could redeem it - in book three in the New York Times best-selling Unwanteds series.

The magical world of Artimé is gone. The Unwanteds have no food, no water, and no hope. And everyone is looking to Alex Stowe for answers.

Overwhelmed and feeling totally helpless, Alex knows it’s up to him to find a way to restore Artimé, rescue his captive friends, and free Megan from her voice-stealing necklace of thorns - three impossible tasks. But could help lie with the silent, orange-eyed newcomers?

Meanwhile, Alex’s twin brother Aaron continues to build his army in the stark land of Quill, preparing for the ultimate showdown with the Unwanteds. But a shocking twist reveals that Alex and Aaron share a common enemy more dangerous than either could have imagined...

:)

There are a few wrong pronunciations such as the name Gunner. It simply is Gun-ner, not Goon-ner. Eva Fathom is Eve-a, not Ave-a. It is pronounced Larn-nie, not Lanni. Some of the voices for the characters are different to the voices I am used to. Especially e voices for Karina, Eva and Simba’s. Clear voice though.

Great story. Please don’t change the voices for each book, since this is a series. If this had been the reader for the first book I wouldn’t have minded since I had nothing to compare to; making me unable to correct the pronunciations. Once again try to keep it to only one or two readers per series.

Otherwise, thank you for making this into an Audible. And thank you Steve West for reading the book.

Amazing Story

My kids and I are still listening to this series and enjoying it. Alex is supposed to fix everything but is completely clueless as to how. He was never taught what to do but everyone is looking to him for answers. Meanwhile, Aaron is still ruling Quill and determined to take over Artime.
I really do like how the author shows the two brothers to be so alike and yet so vastly different. Alex is good and cares for others. Aaron seems selfcentered and only cares about furthering his own rule. The system of Quill is crazy but the people there seem content with it becasue they just know no better. I cannot wait to see where these characters go next but this was a great book.
It is a 5/5 for us! We love these characters.

Hate the reader. Love the book.

His Simber voice is so bad. Instead of rolling his 'R's, he just says the r sound longer. If you know what I mean. Also, he does the Simber voice in this super cringy growly voice, but talks really slowly when he does it. The accent is also distracting if you live in America.

Exciting Read for Young and Old

The Unwanteds series really has caught its stride in Book 3 and I just got trapped pushing through to the end of the book. The world continues to expand and characters develop. Very fun read for young readers or the young in heart.

Great story.... Terrible reader

What did you love best about Island of Fire?

The story line is just as soul searchingly beautiful as the rest

What did you like best about this story?

The characters are well developed and its great to listen to them grow up and mature. It is a wonderful story for teaching kids to persevere.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steve West?

The last guy... the one who did books one and two. At least he could pronounce the names correctly. Its Gun-ner, not Gun-ARE. Girrhinos is a contraction of the words Giraffe and Rhino.... The girl's name is "Lawni" NOT L-annie

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A story of growth, of friendship, of perseverance in the face of danger.

Any additional comments?

Someone please teach that man to pronounce the names with the country of origin of the author in mind.... It makes it annoying when you consistently mispronounce names.

Ends in a cliffhanger!

Also, the new Narrator threw me, especially because he pronounces some of the names differently, which was really confusing, especially with the made up creatures.

Awesome Story

Awesome story but it is hard to listen to a series when the readers change the characters names and voices between books.

Great Story, Bad Narrator

I loved the actual story! However, the narrator seems to have a bit of an accent. I couldn't understand some of the words he said. Otherwise it was very good.
