On the brink of war, the fates of both Artimé and Quill are at stake in book six of the New York Times best-selling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called "The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter."
Alex and Aaron Stowe are at a crossroads.
Everything Aaron has worked so hard to build in Quill has crumbled. Fallen from the height of power and influence and left for dead in a foreign place, Aaron has lost everything, and now he must humbly beg for food from those who saved his life.
In Artimé, Alex chooses his people over his brother and abandons his search for Aaron, closing the door on that relationship forever. The Artimeans need his focus now more than ever as they face the terrifying power of a new enemy who has taken control of Quill - the notoriously evil Gondoleery Rattrapp.
Desperate to stop her, Alex embarks on a risky mission to enlist help from an unlikely ally, and along the way he's determined to rescue a lone sailor from monstrous beasts with mysterious origins - a sailor who just might show Alex a different world. As he prepares for an epic war with all of Quill and Artime hanging in the balance, Alex must place his faith in a reckless plan...and hope that he and all of his friends make it through alive.

This is one of the most imaginative series since Harry Potter. I can't wait to read the next book. Definitely one you'll want to share with kids and grandkids! The narration brings it alive and makes it that much more enjoyable . Well done!
I am addicted to Steve West and I love Lisa McMann. Every time I go out jogging or drive my car I have you with me and I can't get enough :-). Steve does a perfect job!
Island of Graves is a perfect next book for the Unwanted's series. The complexity of the plot and especially of the characters (Aaron in particular) were really good. The vivid description and the great narrator drew me in and really let me see what was happening in the story. I recommend this to high-achieving readers of eleven or twelve (since I was one and loved this series), but I also recommend this to up to fifteen. Of course anyone would love it, so I encourage all people thirteen and up to listen to. Enjoy
The story of one brother changing, growing, becoming a mage in his own right, while the other brother learns forgiveness and acceptance. Each one finding his own inner corn! Simply brilliant!
