Isle of the Lost Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon and made to live in virtual imprisonment on the Isle of the Lost. The island is surrounded by a magical force field that keeps the villains and their descendants safely locked up and away from the mainland. Life on the island is dark and dreary. It is a dirty, decrepit place left to rot and forgotten by the world.

Maleficent, Mistress of the Dark: Ruler of the Isle. Her subjects don't know how to do anything without their powers, so they fix clothes with safety pins instead of needle and thread; they don't know how to use brooms to sweep if they can't fly them, and their crystal balls are good only as goldfish bowls these days.

Mal: 16-year-old Mal is the most popular and talented student at Dragon Hall; her mother is the great Maleficent, Mistress of Darkness, the most powerful and wicked fairy in the world, and there is nothing Mal desires more in the world than to be just like her mother.

Evie: daughter of the Evil Queen. She has been castle-schooled for years, and this is her first year at Dragon Hall. Evie's lush, dark hair falls from her forehead in a striking widow's peak, and she never leaves home without her crown.

Jay: son of Jafar. Handsome, puckish, sexy, and mischievous, with long, dark hair in a bandanna and a great tan. Jay is a thief, a con man, a handsome, quick-witted boy with charm to spare whose lies are as beautiful and silvery as his eyes.

Carlos: son of Cruella. Jumpy, anxious little kid but with the true skills of a tech prodigy. He's been working feverishly on a project that would connect the Isle of the Lost to the outside world. Deathly afraid of dogs.

    Mal's an expert at intimidating her enemies, but she's broken the habit since leaving her villainous roots behind. So when she and her friends, Evie, Carlos, and Jay, all receive threatening messages demanding they return home, Mal can't believe it. Sure, she's King Ben's girlfriend now, and she's usually nice to her classmates, but she still didn't think anyone would be silly enough to try to push her around. The thing is, it kind of worked. Especially since she and her friends have a sneaking suspicion that their villainous parents are behind the messages.
