The third book in the fantasy series The Unwanteds careens toward a showdown between worlds and brothers. Identical twins Alex and Aaron have just turned 13 in the dystopian world of Quill, and their destiny has been decided: Aaron is a 'wanted,' someone who has shown intelligence and will go to university, while Alex, who is creative, has been deemed 'unwanted' and will go to the Death Farm. But the Death Farm, as not all the characters realize, is a place of magic, not death. There magic skills are sharpened, puzzles solved, and rescues undertaken. In this brisk novel organized in short, tight sections, the cast of characters grows. Crushes and betrayals ensue. Newcomers could change the pallor of deprivation that builds in Alex's world, and the brothers' rivalry heightens with the revelation of a common enemy.
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...
