Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—The long-awaited sequel to The Ward (HarperCollins, 2013)! In the previous volume, readers met Ren, a 16-year-old girl who works two jobs—as a drag car racer and as a scout for the "Blues," a secret organization hunting for fresh water since the Wash-Out flooded New York and contaminated the water supply. The Isle picks up right where the previous volume ended, with Ren finding a potential new source of water that has miraculous healing properties, which she uses to save her sister, Aven, from the Blight, a virus killing many people in the Ward. While Ren wants to keep the source of water a secret and use it to save the disease-infected people, she faces two foes who want access to the water for very different agendas. One is Governor Voss, the very man who hired Ren to search for freshwater, while the second is the Tètai, an ancient secret order that has been protecting the water for generations. Purchase where dystopians are still popular.

Review

Praise for The Ward:“A highly imaginative, pulse-racing page-turner.” (Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series)

“Ren is volatile, embittered, and dedicated to the adrenaline surge of racing, but she’s also gutsy, loyal, and at times surprisingly vulnerable. Frankel’s unforgiving, drowned New York serves as a formidable background for her survival story, the first in a planned series.” (Publishers Weekly)

The Isle picks up right where book one, The Ward left off. The cast of characters, Ren, Callum, Dererk discovered a natural spring (with some very special properties) and saved Aven from the Blight only to have her stolen away from them by the nefarious Governor Voss, who is determined to push Aven into every scientific experiment he can think of to discover just how far this new cure will go...how much it will cure. The race is now on for Ren and the 'crew' to not only save Aven but to stop Govenor Voss from discovering the 'cures' source and misusing it. The Isle is told from the dual POV of Ren and Aven.

So this was an interesting read to me because I really REALLY wanted to like this so hard. Now, it isn't that I didn't like it, I did...but I had a lot of trouble sticking with it. It took me quite a bit of time to get through it because I didn't have that "OMGosh I HAVE to finish this now!" feeling when it came to this book. Funnily enough though this is a pretty quick read, I can see people tearing through it in now time at all. It is filled with action, these characters are constantly on the run from someone or another (mainly Voss) or racing to save someone. I think the challenge for me was I felt like I didn't get all the relationship development I wanted with each character. There are all these simmering feelings just beneath all the action but we never really get there. The only relationship that is ever fully developed ( and I don't mean strictly romantic relationships) is Ren and Avens.

Let's talk about the girls and their relationship really quick. I loved them. I love Ren's spirit and drive. I love her passion and dedication to those who she cares for, who she considers her family.

I have been looking forward to THE ISLE since 2013 and I am happy to say that I enjoyed it as much as I was hoping to. The book had a nice fast pace, lots of evading danger and we got to know the characters better. I did miss the romance in THE ISLE, it was pretty much put on the back burner.

The ending made me think that the story isn't over. I hope book three will be out quicker than the time it took for book two to be released.

This book was exactly what I was hoping for! Frankel does a great job answering all the questions ones has, and the character development is fantastic! This sequel was just as good as the for book:)
