Good news for Unwanteds fans! There is a new series featuring the now 12-year twins Fifer and Thisbe. The bad news is the book ends with a major cliffhanger…
It has been 10 years since we last visited the seven islands of the Unwanteds, and Artimé and Quill are still at peace. Alex and Aaron Stowe’s younger twin sisters Fifer and Thisbe are extremely frustrated with their older brothers. They are told that they have the most natural magical ability on the island, but Alex refuses to let them be trained in using magic until they learn some self-control. They don’t feel they will be able to control their magic until they have some training. Just when they have disappointed Alex again, something exciting finally happens. Hux, one of the young dragons that Alex had made wings for, returns to Artimé. He needs larger wings, but he also needs Alex to come with him to create the wings for his brothers and sisters. The dragons are being held captive and will be killed if they are not able to fly. When Alex refuses to help, Fifer and Thisbe decide to take matters into their own hands, bringing along their friend Seth as well. An exciting return into the world of the Unwanteds. Recommended for fans of the series, grades 4 & up.
