The Unwanteds island of Graves by Lisa McMann

Island of Graves (Unwanteds, #6)Book Description:
On the brink of war, the fates of both Artimé and Quill are at stake in book six of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.”

Alex and Aaron Stowe are at a crossroads.

Everything Aaron has worked so hard to build in Quill has crumbled. Fallen from the height of power and influence and left for dead in a foreign place, Aaron has lost everything, and now he must humbly beg for food from those who saved his life.

In Artimé, Alex chooses his people over his brother and abandons his search for Aaron, closing the door on that relationship forever. The Artimeans need his focus now more than ever as they face the terrifying power of a new enemy who has taken control of Quill—the notoriously evil Gondoleery Rattrapp.

Desperate to stop her, Alex embarks on a risky mission to enlist help from an unlikely ally, and along the way he’s determined to rescue a lone sailor from monstrous beasts with mysterious origins—a sailor who just might show Alex a different world. As he prepares for an epic war with all of Quill and Artime hanging in the balance, Alex must place his faith in a reckless plan...and hope that he and all of his friends make it through alive.

My Thoughts:
We are still enjoying this series and have actually already started the next book.  Watching all the characters grow and change is wonderful.  I am still heartbroken about some of the losses that Artime has had but they keep going.  The changes in Aaron are startling and I'm with Alex in that I wonder how long they will last.
Watching Aaron's transformation was great.  I also liked how even when he is scared, he jumps right in and helps now.  The two brothers are still wildly different just not as drastically different.  Seeing that someone can change and not put themselves first all the time was a nice change in the story.  I still love all the characters and cannot wait to see what happens to them next.

It was a 5/5 for us!
