A risky decision endangers both Artimé and Quill in book five of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.”

Alex and his friends from Artimé are stranded on a newly discovered island after barely surviving a storm that destroys their ship. And it turns out they’re not alone…

Back in Quill, Aaron’s power base grows as he aligns himself with an unlikely ally. Together, the two enact a drastic, risky plan to finally conquer Artimé—a plan that could ultimately leave everyone in both Artimé and Quill in far more danger than Aaron realizes.

Reading Challenges: 2024 Audiobook challenge


Whether you are an adult (that’s me) or a teen, THIS IS A MUST READ SERIES. Each book is its own story, but all tied in together. You have fantasy, mystery, thrills and chills, war, romance, friendship, sacrifice, and every other genre of book or emotion in one book (or series). I don’t want this to end. While I still have two books to go, I am already saddened with the knowledge that I am almost done.
