The fate of Artimé is at stake - and an unlikely alliance could redeem it - in book three in the New York Times best-selling Unwanteds series.
The magical world of Artimé is gone. The Unwanteds have no food, no water, and no hope. And everyone is looking to Alex Stowe for answers.
Overwhelmed and feeling totally helpless, Alex knows it’s up to him to find a way to restore Artimé, rescue his captive friends, and free Megan from her voice-stealing necklace of thorns - three impossible tasks. But could help lie with the silent, orange-eyed newcomers?
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 hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)
I admit I felt that the previous book Island of Silence was cut in half when I finished it. After reading this one it's feels like Lisa McMann editor is worried that with a cliff hanger the next book won't sell.
I felt that the first third of the book was just a little too emotional and that it could been compressed without trouble. As a History major who took read a lot about people's raises to power McMann understanding from her side comments are so uninformed it funny. Aaron follows a stunning -historical speaking - well know road to power while Gunner shows a complete lack of skill yet McMann is clearly rooting for Gunner. Alex on ther other hand seems to almost as clue less as Gunner about leadership.
The rest of the book settles down to a number rescues. If the characters could wheren't having a emotional hang over for the first third of the book I really could have enjoyed it.
To enjoy you want to be either highly emotional teenager and just a Glut for *oh why ... *.
