7 books? Great! I loved your book the Unwanteds, the island of silence, and the island of fire, now i know that there WILL be a 4th book, for a terrible momoent i thought that that was where the unwanteds finished, because there was no presenting of the 4th book, but i know that that was because you havent gotten the cover yet. I wonder what happens next?

woah! SEVEN books?! I read all 3 and I thought the last one would be island of fire, and I read them really quickly and stuff, but now I have to wait for another WHOLE year... :(

Yay another book! Why did Mr. Today have to die? The spell could be released! I get it was more intense and all but shouldn't that make it harder to release the spell?

Ah but who said he is definitely dead?? With as many twists and turns as these books make, I wouldn't be surprised if he was still alive somewhere. I cannot wait for the next book. My daughter introduced these to me and they are amazing!!!

I love these books, but in the Unwanteds : Island of Silence it got too intense. It made it a lot harder to read once all your favorite charatures dead. Allthough the books are great, we really need the chacatures to come back. I hope this book brings the series to my high expectations, but if it doesn't I think I'll quit, its just really hard to read. Great story line, though. I am using your idea "Ban on creativity" in one of my books. I love a lot of the charatures ( Even though half are dead, like Mr. Today ) but the way you express them makes the books worth while. I enjoy it a lot, and suggest you to read "The Internal Series", "Warrior Cats", and "Fablehaven", for they are somewhat like your books. If you can email me with updates, email me at ahnikagee@gmail.com I hope this book is great, and you've added some nice twists!

I love you writing Lisa!!! I just finished reading The Unwanteds Island of Fire! And i'm thrilled to know that there will be more books to come! When I finished reading The Island of Fire all the was going through my head was " Wait what? It can't end like this!! What happens next?? Is there more books?? There has to be!! I can't wait until the next one!!" You came up with the best idea for your book and i'm sure that this will soon become a very successful series and maybe even a motion picture...

You said there are seven books is one book for each island? Like the first book was about there own island and the second book was about warbler and the third book was about pirate island so is the fourth book about the island after pirate island? And then the other three books, are they about the three islands to the east?

This is my favorite series ever. I used to be loyal to Rick Riordan, but now you've got my drooling over book 4 in the Unwanteds series. I've read all of them in about 5 days. I just finished book 3, but I hope you can write fast!

Im very excited for all the books. will megan find somebody like everybody else is? when simber is in the water for the fourth book cover wont he die? so many questions to ask i hope i get all of them answered in all the books your writing. There should be a movie out of all the books i bet it would be very popular.

Hi im pretty young and im a really big fan of these books. I really cant wait to the fourth book to come out because sometimes i just sit and wait wondering when when i can read it. graet suspense ant the end of the third book. Sometimes it is just a pain because im saying to myself oh my goodness whats gonna happen?

I can't wait for the new book and I loved island of fire and can't believe mr. Today died I hope he comes back cause as far as I know the heart attacks are not deadly

I have loved every second of reading The Unwanteds series! You are such a great author and I look forward to all the books that lie ahead! I am sad that I will have to wait another year for the 4th book, but I know that you are putting all you can into the book! I cannot wait to see how the relationships with Alex, Samheed, Lani, and Sky work out (thank you for taking their thorns off). That was a very good cliffhanger by the way! "No more than an instant later, the high priest of Quill faded away." I am in a love hate relationship with that end. I'd like to sincerely thank you for writing these books, and I can't wait until the 4th one comes out!

Sincerely,

ikr when Simber is in the water will he die? I belive you should make a sneek peek for all your desperate readers... I love all your books its amazing maybe there's a spell that makes simber not die. But What about Aaron? will he join forces with Alex and all of Artimé? Island of fire was sad Why did Mr. Today die.. but I kind of like Mr. Today being gone because it makes the book interesting more interesting... Island of fire was sad how ever person had to sleep in tht one shack

Will they win the battle with the warblers.. will they take Sky, Crow, Lani, Meghan, and Sam away? Don't forget the romance between Alex and sky <3

I thought the story was going to end
at island of fire but i am so glad it did not! Do you guys know if island of legends are in the libraries yet because i can't wait to read it I am so excited! I am so curious what happens next. Do you think Sky will get her mom out of that weird island, I hope so!

Anonymous said...

Okay, so first of all, I did not think the books were going to end after Island Of Fire. I love the books, but I'm kinda sad that Lanie and Samheed are together. It was so cute when Alex kissed her on the cheek when he was invisible! But, I also love Sky, so it's all good. Just wondering though, what's going to happen to Meghan— is she going to be an old maid? Also, what about Sean and Carinna? Isn't she too old for him? I hope these get answered, and I can't WAIT for the next book. Thanks!

Okay, so first off best series EVER. It is like better than Harry Potter and Eragon and the Rangers Apprentice combined. I loved the way the book ended with the ship falling and them going to battle, just fabulous. I was very disappointed though when Mr. Today died it was so depressing. I just love Mrs. McMann's writing and cant wait for her to come out with the last 4 books. Wish you good reading everyone.

I've read the first 3 books and I honestly can't wait for the rest. I thought book 3 was the last one with Aaron fading away in the tube. Now that I know theres more I cant wait to read the rest. It's only bad because I have to wait such a long time but its worth it because this is one of the best series i've ever read!

Aarons a jerk thats why, also why would aaron release the spell on mr.today when he hates him. Another thing, there were five heart attack spells thrown at him, thats a lot of heart attacks

I am so in love with your books! They are so detailed and pull you in from the first page to the very end. Thank goodness there will be seven books. I can't wait to hear (or read) about drama and the adventure Its fascinating. Why did Mr. Today have to go??!! And why hasn't Lani figured out Sky and Alex kissed? Oh well, she's too in love with Samheed. Am I wrong? Anyway you seem like a fantastic writer and an amazing person. I wish I could meet you one day! Girlfriend hurry with these books. Do u see how many people love you and your amazing books. Please continue writing. Make a movie already! This would be amazing in a movie. Or is there one and I don't know about it? :) Do not stop this series please, =)

What about Meghan? Don't tell me she falls for Aaron! =( Eww gross it makes me cringe to think about it. Yea Sky and Alex have been through so much together but Alex and Lani met first. In a way its a love SQUARE!

Anonymous said...

I kinda knew that there was gonna be seven books. Seven islands, seven books. The others were great. They all tied into each other. Like at the end of the 3rd book, aaron doesn't realize it but he's a powerful magician because he can see mr.today's hallway. I think that artime and quill will team up to fight against the new enemy coming

Why doesnt Alex just go and release the spel? I love these books!! Just discovered them one month ago and already done with them cant wait until the fourth one

Why did he have to dye and I was heartbroken because Charlie was waiting for Mr today after he died

Wow I can't wait! I love these books. I am very creative so these books really reach me. Keep writing!

I love this series! I wish the next book came out sooner. The third book left me on a big cliff hanger and I love that things worked out with Sky, Alex, and Lani. I was sad when Mr. today died but I think it made the book more intense and brought out a different side of Alex.

I just finished reading all 3 books for the 3rd time. I just love your books and can't wait for the 4th!!!

This series is sooooo amazing! But please write faster!!!! I hate waiting for books to come out.

i love the books alot a lot but i cant wait for the next books to come out. i read the books EXTREMLEY fast, there my favorite books i like how some of the characters died because it made the books a cliff hanger i think you should keep it that way but i cant wait. PS i don't love how from book 2+ are all The unwanteds island of... i dont like the the island of thing i just think you should change it up thanks for reading great books! :)

jourdann janssen said...

your books inspired me to believe in magic so what in some places people shouldn't write or draw or be creative that doesn't mean they shouldn't be that is what the unwanteds is all about magic and believing in creativity Aaron can't just take that away from them

Anonymous said...

I think the book was interesting when Samheed was mean and all . And I thought Lani an Alex looked cute together since Lani is a year younger then Alex . So since Lani and Samheed are together and Alex an Sky are together I think since Sky is a secretive and generous person I think in the next book Lani should get jealous of Alex and Sky and that Sky notices Lani getting jealous and Sky sets of in the middle of the night to go find her mother knowing that if she did she would die doing it on her raft she made so that Lani and Alex could be together ( because remember how cute they were in the first book ?!)
P.S. That would make the story so much more interesting !
P.S.S you and Brandon Mull should work together on a new book if you haven't heard about Brandon Mull go read FableHaven it's one of my favourite fantasy books !!

Anonymous said...

Phew seven books. that's a relief. I thought there would be one more than the series is over.

Anonymous said...

I still think that Alex and lani should be together instead of Alex and sky. I really likes it when they were together it really made the story a lot more fun.

Oooooooh i get it seven books for seven islands!!! Your books are so amazing and i love them sooooo much! I cant wait for the next one to come out!

Let me think... SEVEN!!!!Oh yea ,boy am I going to have a wonderfully good time reading this book series over and over again.The only down side a years wait in between.

I can't believe I have to wait till september! I just finished Island of Fire and actually have the hard copy in front of me on my desk right now and I couldn't believe the book was over so quickly. When I was almost done I was actually sad because I thought the series was over. I can't wait for september to come! (except for the fact that school resumes)

I love The Unwanted book series I'm so glad it is continuing! I usually finish reading them in two weeks. My Dad wants to read them and he saw the title and asked, "How many islands are there?", and I said "seven." He said, "Then that means there are going to be seven books!" I was so happy, but I can't wait till the next one comes out! Lisa McMann your an awesome writer thanks for the awesome books!

Let me just say that the unwantes series is THE BEST out of all the books i've read. i was dying in side and out during the death of Mr.Today. he was the best im really sad that after I'm done the fourth book, i'll probably Have to wait another year. thanks so much for bringing joy to my days

hey, im only in fourth grade and have read #1, 2 and 3. cant wait to read #4!! : )

Is there going to be a movie?

Anonymous said...

I think Simber in water on the cover is weird, and I doubt that Mr.Today will come back alive. And if possible, PLEASE no more cliff hangers! I read about 1 book a day and then I have to wait a year. But other than that, your books are AWESOME!!!! (so... lani & samheed, alex & sky, meghan & ?)
P.S Simber can't die completely he's my favorite character!!
