Head mage Alexander Stowe and his friends successfully fended off the latest threat to their magical world of Artimé with the help of a surprise ally. United at last, they’re exploring exciting new territory. But old enemies have secretly been plotting against them, and danger strikes when they’re most vulnerable.

Now Alex must lead his people in a final epic battle, one they can’t hope to win alone. Loyalties will be tested, and powerful new abilities will emerge on both sides of the war that could change everything.

Reading Challenges: 2024 Audiobook challenge


Island of Dragons by Lisa McMann is an excellent fantasy novel that will leave you on the edge of your seat and reading until you’re done. When twins Alex and Aaron Stowe are forced to save Quill and Artimé from the worst enemies they have ever faced, their courage is put to the test as they attempt to save their island and have peace once and for all. However, with Artimé outnumbered by 4:1, their chances of winning are slimmer by the second. I love that the twins finally stop battling each other and come together to save their world. Also, the sneak peek of the spin-off will make you want to jump right into the next season of these books.

While reading this book, I felt as if I was right there in the world of Artimé, battling alongside Alex, Aaron, and their many friends as they attempted to lead Artimé to victory. Each character had their personality and characteristics, and I felt as if I were in each of their shoes, as their many problems and doubts revealed themselves throughout the book. Lisa McMann did an excellent job of making the characters believable and putting you right in her story. These were enjoyable as audiobooks and helped put distinguishable voices with each character. Though this is a middle-grade series, I, as an adult, would highly recommend it to middle-grade readers who are ready to commit to longer books and more extended series.
