Evil tree. Bad Apple?

Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost-a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain't so bad.

The author of the book Isle of the Lost captured the story perfectly!It held my attention and was constantly surprising me. The story has a different creepful feeling if you read it in a different tone. All in all I would say that the $10 I payed was well worth it!

This book sounds really cool and a little strange but i can't wait to read it. It seems like if i had to ask my dad for just one thing for my birthday it would be this book and that is a fact i love reading so much instead of toys or something like that iasked my dad for a book for christmas he bought me seven books it was awesome.anyway can't wait to read this book can't buy it yet but i'm sure my dad would buy it for me since i've read every other book we have in this house i have nothing to do since i'm not allowed to go to school for the rest of the year which really bums me out because i love school go ahead call me crazy i'm an eleven year old who loves school and books nothings wrong about that at least i don't think so. Anyway i just know i'm going to LLLLLOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE this BOOK!!!! Cheyenne O'connor

I am so looking forward to seeing the movie after reading this. My 8 year old nephew is waiting for me to get this to him. Was a great background. I don't want to say much as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it is a good quick read.

The book is written by best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz (Blue Bloods series). I found Ms. de la Cruz’s writing style engaging. The plot line is funny, mysterious, and captivating! The characters’ personalities are spot-on. They have just enough of their Disney qualities to make them believable, but de la Cruz also mixes in some wackiness and surprises. The Disney character’s offspring are cool, younger, versions of their parents, but also have unique attributes. I like how the book describes how much the villains have changed over the years now that their magic has gone. The book has the right mixture of adventure, action, and a touch of evil to really keep it interesting. The story is perfect for middle grade, young adults, or any Disney fan. Both content, reading level and subject matter is appropriate for all ages. As I read the book, I found myself thinking – wishing, there would be more in the series, but alas, the next version of this story will be a movie. Can a movie live up to the wonderful story set up by de la Cruz in this book? With Disney’s touch of magic, I am hopeful it will. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

This was such an interesting read. I'm not used to reading from a villain's...or almost villain's POV. It was definitely unique. I found the characters entertaining and even eduring. The relationships between the other villains were also interesting. I'm looking forward to the TV movie coming out next month to see how this storyline plays out.
