The fate of Artimé is at stake—and an unlikely alliance could redeem it—in book three in the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series.

The magical world of Artimé is gone. The Unwanteds have no food, no water, and no hope. And everyone is looking to Alex Stowe for answers.

Overwhelmed and feeling totally helpless, Alex knows it’s up to him to find a way to restore Artimé, rescue his captive friends, and free Megan from her voice-stealing necklace of thorns—three impossible tasks. But could help lie with the silent, orange-eyed newcomers?

Meanwhile, Alex’s twin brother Aaron continues to build his army in the stark land of Quill, preparing for the ultimate showdown with the Unwanteds. But a shocking twist reveals that Alex and Aaron share a common enemy more dangerous than either could have imagined...

    Mr. Today is gone. Artime has disappeared and Lani and Samheed still haven't been found. Artime is now in the hands of Alex and he has to accept it. So when some vague instructions and a robe may be the key to saving Artime, Alex knows what he has to do. Still attempting to save Lani and Samheed and get the thorns off Sky, Crow, and Megan, Alex has one full plate. Meanwhile, Aaron is getting more people and workers and his army is growing: waiting for attack. But there might be an enemy who wants to destroy both Quill and Artime. Happy reading!

          I was so happy Simber came back at the beginning. Also who else knew that the dots were from the painting because I did and I was like urging Alex saying that they were the dots. Overall, I thought it was interesting how they got Sam&Lani, also when are they getting the mom, I think that it the next book!! Can’t wait, just started it today.

                    I love the Unwanteds series especially the third book!!! Lisa McMann is a great author!!! There was a cliffhanger at the end that made me want to read the 4th book at that moment. Can't wait to read it!
