These books can't come fast enough for my daughter! She got the first book, The Unwanteds, for Christmas, and finished it in no time, and so ordered the second book, Island of Silence, for her 12th birthday in January. Now I have ordered the third book, Island of Fire, for Easter....if she can wait that long!!!
Just to give you an idea of area of interest for those thinking of ordering this series, my daughter is a Harry Potter and Hunger Games fan, and REALLY enjoyed The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer (Glee star), as well.

Loved, loved, loved this book. Even better than the first one, which is rare for a series book. I found the first book to drag in places but this one had me glued to the pages from start to finish. First, though, I have to say I hate the blurb on the front cover claiming "The Hunger Games Meets Harry Potter" (Kirkus Reviews). This book is nothing like either of them. Oh, it's dystopia and has magic but the similarities end there. Lisa McMann has proven herself over and over again that she stands on her own merits as an author and doesn't need to be compared to others to sell her books. The world of Quill and Artime is expanded as a new Island and its people are discovered. Alex's character grows by leaps and bounds as he's given a leadership role and all the characters are carried over from the first book. The death of a major character is shocking and hard to believe; I am determined to think it will turn out otherwise in the next volume (please?). I love the combination of magic versus mundane totalitarianism. A speedy read with very short chapters that make it so easy to keep reading just one more chapter. McMann has become one of my favourite YA authors, though this series is MG, and I'm excited for the next volume coming out this fall and have the first in her new series ready to read next.

Better than Potter Sept. 6 2012
By Mark P. Sadler - Published on
Format: Hardcover
**spoiler alert - In the second volume of this incredible dystopian young adult series, we find the story picking up right after the battle of good vs. evil has raged. Airtime has defeated the Quillens and the two tribes are struggling through an unsteady truce. Since the Quillens placed these Unwanteds in Airtime thinking they were condemning them to death, it takes a little adjustment to realize that not only are they alive but are great at magic spells, and just defeated them in battle.
Airtime is run by mage Mr. Today, whose evil twin sister was killed, as leader of Quill. Now his young prodigy, Unwanted Alex Stowe, has to face a similar destiny. His Wanted twin brother Aaron has devised a way to recruit a team of those unhappy with the turn of events since the battle who are seeking revenge. By controlling his team with food supply and managing to use a little of the magic back on those that conjured it up in the first place, he has found a way to weave his dastardly deeds on the unsuspecting inhabitants of Airtime.
Spies abound on both sides, the newly appointed high priest has been taken prisoner, but these are all unknown to Mr. Today, who decided that after the troubling times, he should take a few days of vacation and leave Alex in charge. While he is in charge, the worst possible circumstances happen. Three of Alex's best friends sail to a neighboring isle and are taken captive, the whole of Airtime mysteriously disappears with all the buildings and magically created creatures disintegrating, and Mr. Today appears to be dead. It just couldn't get any worse, or could it?
Alex has to turn to two shipwrecked creatures from the island where his friends are being held for help and McMann leaves us twisting in the wind as a new spell left for Alex by Mr. Today is discovered. Hope shines its smiley face on the troubled times in Airtime. I have it on good authority--the author herself--that book number three is in the editing process as we speak, which is a good thing as I can't live without finding out how our heroes get out of this one. They do, don't they? Hey Lisa!

Great Series June 5 2014
By Kelly - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After meeting the author I bought the first book for my son (14 yr old fantasy reader). He couldn't read it fast enough and the second book is just as good. I am sure he will be begging me for every one in the series as they all get published. The books are so good that my husband (very reluctant reader) picked it up and actually read the whole book as well. I have ordered this series for the school library I work at as well, I know it will be a big hit.
