Publisher's Summary

The second book in the middle-grade dystopian fantasy series that Kirkus Reviews calls "The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter", by New York Times best-selling 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 fates of both worlds hanging in the balance.

    Story
    "poor plot structure, good narration"

    Bad "big picture" plot structure. Bad-guy plan succeeds through sheer luck, rather than any intelligence on their part. Makes for lower stakes for protagonist. Good reader, though not quite as good as the reader for book 1.

    "Half a Book."
    Have you listened to any of James Langton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First book was great. I like the world he is creating very much.


    Any additional comments?

    This is only half the story. My opinion; this is not a cliffhanger, but a greedy choice of a publisher to sell two books.

    "Fine story pity it's really just half of it"

    I really enjoy the unwanteds and looked forward to book2; but this one really is only half the story. Which is a shame. The ending not even a cliff hanger so much as a low point in a raising action.... :(
