The Unwanteds Island of Dragons by Lisa McMann

Island of Dragons (Unwanteds, #7)Book Description:
Twins Alex and Aaron Stowe are put to the ultimate test to fulfill their destinies and save both Quill and Artimé from the deadliest enemy the cities have ever faced in the thrilling conclusion of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.” 

Head mage Alexander Stowe and his friends successfully fended off the latest threat to their magical world of Artimé with the help of a surprise ally. But old enemies have secretly been plotting against them. Now Alex must lead his people in a final epic battle, one they can’t hope to win alone. Will Artimé finally know peace or will all they’ve fought for be destroyed forever? - 

My Thoughts:
I am completely sad that this is the last in this series.  I have loved the series (as have my children 10, 7 &3).  We've listened to all of them and adore these characters.  Alex has grown to be a strong leader.  Aaron has changed so drastically.  All their friends are wonderful and stand by the boys in their problems.
The fighting is epic.  It was wonderful and so tragic.  The battle strategy.  All their friends.  Ahhh!  The way the author ended the book made me sad and hopeful for the characters' futures.  This is a wonderful book for the ending and sets it up perfect for the spin off series for the girls (Alex and Aaron's twin sisters).  I will miss these characters but hopefully will get glimpses of them in the future books.
5/5.  We will continue with the girls' books, but will miss having these main characters front and center.
