School Library Journal - 11/01/2017 Gr 4–6—Fifer is hanging by a thread to life and Thisbe, her twin, is alive but trapped in the underground catacombs of another world and branded as a slave by the evil Revinir. This story starts up where the last book, The Unwanted Quests, left off. As Thisbe drags dragon bones every day, unwillingly contributing to Revinir's plan for world domination, her home island Artime prepares to rescue her while Fifer recovers. But will it be too late by the time the rescuers get there—will Thisbe have given up hope and taken matters into her own hands before they can fly the gap between worlds? The story line alternates between each twin, following them as they each struggle and hone their respective powers, Fifer with magical birds and Thisbe with fire. Though there is nothing too unexpected plotwise, the story is well written and the characters continue to evolve as they encounter new situations. Readers who enjoyed "The Unwanteds" and the first book of this new companion series will want to pick up this next installment, though it leaves more questions than resolutions. Readers new to the series should start at the beginning. VERDICT A solid continuation of a high adventure series that will leave readers curious about the next book.—Clare A.
