The second book in the middle-grade dystopian fantasy series that Kirkus Reviews calls “the Hunger Games meets Harry Potter,” by New York Times bestselling 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 fate of both worlds hanging in the balance.

    " Not quite as strong as the first volume. Didn't pack as much of an emotional punch as I would have liked. It moved the plot along, but I liked that the first Unwanteds basically stood alone. This one definitely suffered from "middle volume of a series syndrome." "

    " Loved this book! Filled with action and left me anxious to read the next. The short chapters made me breeze through it never wanting to put it down until the last page. "

    " I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!!!!! "

    " The second book in the Unwanted series increases the tension between twin brothers, Aaron and Alex, as well as the tension between Artime and Quill. Alex is being groomed to take over for Mr Today while Mr. Today goes on holiday. Aaron allows his bitterness toward Alex and those in authority in Quill as he plots his revenge. The sequel is even more exciting than the first book with plenty of creative magic. I hope there will be a third installment! Share this book with fans of Harry Potter. "
