Publisher's Summary

The second book in the middle-grade dystopian fantasy series that Kirkus Reviews calls "The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter", by New York Times best-selling author Lisa McMann.

Following the life-altering events at the conclusion of The Unwanteds, the stark world of Quill and the magical haven of ArtimÉ are now home to whoever wants to live there, whether they are Wanteds, Unwanteds, or Necessaries.

In ArtimÉ, Alex Stowe and his friends continue to hone their artistic magical spells while welcoming newcomers, wondering how long this peace between Quill and ArtimÉ will last. Alex is stunned when Mr. Today comes to him with a very special request - one Alex questions his readiness for, until circumstances offer a dramatic answer.

And back in Quill, Aaron Stowe, Alex's twin, faces a very different path. Devastated by his loss of status after Justine's defeat and seething with rage toward Alex, Aaron is stealthily planning his revenge and return to power.

Alex and Aaron's separate stories proceed with suspenseful pacing, colliding in a stunning climax that elevates sibling rivalry to epic proportions and leaves the fates of both worlds hanging in the balance.

Excellent Story!

I really liked the story, but I would have liked it better if the narrator from the Unwanteds: Book one was narrating this book as well. This narrator was not quite as good as the last one. Overall it was very good.

IT BROKE THE HEART OF EVERY HEARTED PERSON

With all the mysteries of book one solved in book one, Lisa McMann had no where to go with this book, so it turned into a long boring conversation book. I listened for almost four hours, but could not stay awake for any more. Instead of a continuation of book one, I think a prequel would have been more interesting.

Amazing

I have read the last two books with the audiobook. Helps a lot. The narrator has been amazing, the way words are said really makes the characters come alive!

Amazing book! Can't wait to listen to book 3

The best! I absolutely how the narrator does Simber. The rumble of his voice matches the growling voice of the cheetah. The book was very well done. But I was so ticked off when Mr. Today dies. SPOILER ALERT! HE DOES! But other than that, the book is amazing. The creativity and magic in the book is awesome. I recommend this book to everyone!👏👍

Amazing Continuation

I am loving listening to this series with my kids. This one was great and terrible at the same time. My 9 year old is the one who is really into it, but the 7 year old enjoys it as well. Alex is a hero and Mr. Today is set on how life should proceed. I like that we see things from both Alex and his twin brother, Aaron's points of view. I must say I really still don't like Aaron at all. Artime is still a magical place but this one shows how quickly life can change. I laughed, cried, got angry and happy. This book is really well written and I believe can teach some lessons. Alex needs to believe in himself more and there are lots of trust issues. Not to mention the other islands and some new characters we meet. There was something that happened that I was completely shocked by but I understand why the author did it (though I so don't like it). I need to listen to the next book to see what happens! It was a 5/5 for me. I'm really starting to love these characters.

Amazing

It’s a bit lengthy but totally worth it if you’re into big twists and suspense into a second book. It really travels the rest of the story from the first book quite far. It’s the best!
