This was Unwanteds Book 5. The pacing was good through most of it. This book really felt like it was trying to figure out what to be. And in the end takes a good story and throws a confusing “time-bomb” element that really felt nearly pointless. I feel like there is a full plot line that if removed would have not felt so crazy discombobulated. I liked the book but just felt like it tried to crank up the heat that pretty much fell flat. If you’ve enjoyed each of the islands so far, you’ll like this one.
