The second book in the middle-grade dystopian fantasy series that Kirkus Reviews calls “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter,” by New York Times bestselling 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 fate of both worlds hanging in the balance.

My 2nd favorite series. This whole series is just outright awesome and insanely action packed with some hilarious moments and romance, its got everything.

This is a great book. People form the island of silence can't talk, and that becomes a problem when Alex's friends are no where to be seen. With no way of communicating, and with a terrible ruler, Alex's friend are stuck on an island that Alex doesn't even know of.

Wow! This is a terrific book! Most of the time, I was unable to put this down! It made me nervous (a page turner!), laugh, cry, and jump for joy. After reading this, I couldn't wait (even for a few seconds) to get my hands on the third book.

This book is the best book ever. I could never stop reading. This is about a island name quill and Artime and how one of the main characters (Alex Stowe) brother (Aaron Stowe) wages war on Artime making devistational blows.

Best series ever!!!!!!!! Great Book Lisa Mcmann. I loved Going WIld also!!!!!!!!

I have been reading this book and I can't wait to see wait happened I love the battle in the first book, but I was so sad when Alex and Aaron did not get back together

I have the first book of The Unwanteds series. I am really looking forward to reading the series this Summer!!!

While not as good as the book that came before it, the story that on folds in its pages is wonderful to be a part of

I LOVE The Unwanteds series!!!! I think this series is a real page turner and anybody that is interested in dystopia and a good fantasy book will LOVE this series as much as I did!

Beast book ever. Marcus tells the kids about the place were he grew up. He said it was nice but Lisa begs to differ after she went there.
