Evil tree. Bad Apple?

Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost--a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain't so bad.

    It tells a lot bigger story then what the movie says because it focuses on the island and nothing relly else. I loved it so much

            This book is just the absolute best !!!! It's based on the happy ever afters . It takes place on the Isle of the Lost. The island in which the villains are kept prisoners. its the descendants of the villains that are the anti- heroes (read the 2nd book to know what i mean) It features Mal , daughter of the evilest fairy of them all, Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen, Carlos , son of Cruella De vill, and Jay , son of Jafar. this book is the prequel the the Disney Descendants and its actually the inspiration. If it inspired a movie then you know its worth checking out.

                Good, Bad? These kids, Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos, are the offspring of the worlds worst villains. These kids decide their own destiny, are they good are they bad, they have no choice or do they? Don’t worry I won’t give any spoilers. This book really shows how no matter the persons background or how they appear to be decides who they are on the inside. I loved this book and the , message it gave !
