On the brink of war, the fates of both Artimé and Quill are at stake in book six of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.”

Alex and Aaron Stowe are at a crossroads.

Everything Aaron has worked so hard to build in Quill has crumbled. Fallen from the height of power and influence and left for dead in a foreign place, Aaron has lost everything, and now he must humbly beg for food from those who saved his life.

In Artimé, Alex chooses his people over his brother and abandons his search for Aaron, closing the door on that relationship forever. The Artimeans need his focus now more than ever as they face the terrifying power of a new enemy who has taken control of Quill—the notoriously evil Gondoleery Rattrapp.

Desperate to stop her, Alex embarks on a risky mission to enlist help from an unlikely ally, and along the way he’s determined to rescue a lone sailor from monstrous beasts with mysterious origins—a sailor who just might show Alex a different world. As he prepares for an epic war with all of Quill and Artime hanging in the balance, Alex must place his faith in a reckless plan...and hope that he and all of his friends make it through alive.

Reading Challenges: 2024 Audiobook challenge


Each book in this series gets better and better. Whether you wait for the complete series to be written and then read them (if you do, plan on losing a lot of sleep because you won’t want to stop till the final book), or you read each book as it is published, and anxiously await the next, either way, you won’t be disappointed. The series has everything readers can ask for humor, battles, adventure, magic, and romance. This book (in my opinion) is the best of the series! If you haven’t started the series yet, get it! You won’t be able to put it down! The relationship between Alex and Aaron is rough as they begin to feel wanted and unwanted. What do you do when your brother is supposed to be dead? Lisa Mcmann’s unwanteds contain a lot of memorable moments, and you can’t help but hope that the relationship between the brothers has a happy ending. The people of Quill will see that being creative or (unwanted) is not a bad thing. The various islands that make up this unique world are the perfect treat for the middle-grade crowd, and I am most excited for the final book, Island of Dragons. I love anything with dragons.
