Dragon Bones by Lisa McMann

Dragon Bones (The Unwanteds Quests #2)Book Description:

Ten years after Alex and Aaron Stowe brought peace to Quill and Artimé, their younger twin sisters journey beyond Artimé in the second novel in the New York Times bestselling sequel series to The Unwanteds, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.”

The Artiméans have suffered some devastating blows.

After years of peace, the recent daring adventure of twins Thisbe and Fifer Stowe have brought about dire consequences. Thisbe has been captured, Fifer is injured, and Sky is lost at sea. The twins’ older brother Alex, head mage of Artimé, is paralyzed with fear of losing anyone else he loves. Fifer must convince him to finally trust her to help in the battle ahead now that their true enemy has been revealed.

Meanwhile Thisbe is trapped underground in the catacombs, where the ancient dragon rulers are buried. Along with fellow prisoners, Thisbe’s job is to transport dragon bones from her crypt to the extracting room, where others extract the magical properties dormant in the bones. When it appears no one is coming back to rescue her, Thisbe must train in secret, trying to learn how to control her fiery magic and use it to escape. As her situation becomes more grave, she might even have to align herself with the ultimate evil.

Unfortunately it’s a risk she has to take.

My Thoughts:
This is a wonderfully heartbreaking book. It starts where the first DragonQuest book leaves off. The girls are separated and Skye is gone. Alex is determined to get Thisbe back while keeping Fifer safely tucked away in Artime. I'm still not used to the voices this narrator does but I do enjoy the story.
Each of the twins is growing and changing. They aren't together 24/7 anymore so they are having to learn to survive without each other. It was a truly good story that made me happy and sad. I wasn't sure I wanted to listen to more right after the story was done but now I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.
It was a 5/5. I cannot wait for us to listen to the next book.
