Master of the Phantom Isle (Dragonwatch, #3)

Hardcover, 496 pages
Published October 1st 2019 by Shadow Mountain

Brandon Mull has a delightfully wicked way of wrapping up a story by introducing what the next story arc is going to be or where it will happen.  Then follows it up with a book that picks up right where the previous one left off.  This is great!  For anyone who has all the books and binge them one after the other.  But incredibly frustrating for those of us who read them before the next book releases!!

That being said, this third installment is marvelous!  We learn more about what happened to Seth at the end of book two as well as Bracken’s whereabouts.  Kendra does a fantastic job of coping with the loss of her brother while trying to maintain her responsibilities.  We get to see Warren and Vanessa again.  And my favorite, the Fairy Queen, makes an appearance 🙂

If I say too much more, I’ll give away spoilers for either this book or the previous ones.  Hopefully you’ve already read them, but here are links to my reviews if you want to check those out.

Dragonwatch

Wrath of the Dragon King

Summary:

Cursed by the Key of Forgetting, Seth has lost all memory of his past—his relationships, his experiences, and who he really is. For now he will align with his new mentor, Ronodin, the dark unicorn, who takes him to the Phantom Isle, the secret gateway to the Under Realm. Though Seth is not formally a prisoner, Ronodin wants to use him and his shadow charmer powers for his own dark ends.

Kendra is frantic to find her missing brother, but the quest will take her and her companions, including Warren, Tanu, and Vanessa, far from Wyrmroost to Crescent Lagoon—a recently fallen dragon sanctuary made up of many islands and underwater domains. Its caretaker has regained a foothold on one of the islands. If Kendra and her friends can save that sanctuary, they might uncover the answers they need to rescue Seth.

With each sanctuary the dragons overthrow, Celebrant, the Dragon King, comes closer to the dawn of a new Age of Dragons. With the forces of darkness on the march, can Kendra and her allies gather enough power to win the epic dragon war?

Summary:

No monster wants you to read this book. The more you know about monsters, the more you will know how to defeat them.

Little kids have big fears, which they often imagine to be scary creatures, like monsters. But this book helps explain how knowing “Monster Facts” can help kids outwit them.
