The Unwanteds Spell Parade

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

Recently we finished The Island of Silence, the second book in The Unwanteds series by Lisa McMann.  As we were reading we came up with the idea of creating our own spell ideas, much like the students of Atrime do in the novel.  So here is a video with a parade of AFFL students and one AFFL teacher explaining their spells.

I personally thought the ending of Island of Silence was outstanding.  It was a perfect second novel in a series.  I am now eagerly awaiting the next installment, as I need to know what is going on with the island of silence, the weird neck barbed wire thing and what is going to happen to Artime.

I would love to hear some AFFL thoughts on the end of the book and some predictions for the next story.  Hit that comment button and let me know what you are thinking.

Mr. H

ps.  I think we might have found our next AFFL book.  Goblin Secrets by William Alexander just won the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature.  It looks right up our alley.
