I loved this book so so much!!!!! It is the 3rd book in the Unwanteds series. This book is about a wizard named Alex, who has to do 3 what seem like impossible things: 1. make Artimē magically appear (their home); 2. somehow save Lani and Samheed (their friends); 3. win the war (between Alex and Aaron). In this book, anything is possible. My favorite character was Alex because of his bravery. For example, he was very brave when he want to rescue Lani and Sameed on the Warbler island. This book had a very big cliffhanger ending. I haven't read the next book yet but I hope that it will ease the cliffhanger a bit it stopped in a very bad part and I really want to know what happens. A sign of a great book! If you want to find out more read the book!!!!

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...

I really want to read this book!
Island of Fire starts right where Island of Silence left off, and Alex and the rest of the inhabitants of Artimé are shocked that their incredible home just disappeared before their eyes. Everyone is living in a gray shack, surviving on what little food and water they have. Now Alex is their leader, and he has to figure out how to make Artimé come back before it is too late. Meghan and Samheed are still on Warbler Island, in complete darkness and unable to speak because of thorn necklaces sewn into their necks. With all of these burdens and responsibilities on his back, will Alex be able to handle it all? Will the Artiméans with thorn necklaces be able to speak again? In a wonderful third installment of a thrilling and enjoyable series, Island of Fire will leave readers wanting more. Lisa McMann strikes again with another excellent novel. My thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. It was a great addition to the Unwanteds series, and I can not wait for the following books. The description was great in this book, and Lisa does a great job of making the world of The Unwanteds series very vivid and realistic. Like book one and two, I absolutely LOVE the cover art. Owen Richardson is the perfect cover artist for this series. For some reason, even though it was 464 pages long I thought it was too short. Maybe it’s because there aren’t many words on the page, or that when I read it I was on a road trip. Lisa McMann, keep writing, and I will be reading. Can’t wait to see Lisa @ #AustinTeenBookFestival! :-) I truly can not wait to read book 4 (and see the cover and title); my guess for the title is Island of Water. I bet I’ll be like, “Told ya so! :-) Also, I want to thank Emma Sector at Simon and Schuster for sending me an ARC of this book. Thank you so much, Emma!
