Some of the most unusual islands so far appear in this book!
Honestly this is one of my favorites of the series for a number of reasons, lots of threads from earlier in the series are resolved in this book. We also meet some of my favorite characters in this book. Plus there is just a lot of sea-fairing adventure going on which is always fun, dangerous but fun. We also discover larger things about the Unwanteds world in general that will play into the next series.
By itself: 5+
For the series 5
