About Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle

dragonwatch: master of the phantom isle

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?

My review

Brandon Mull writes amazing books! I love the fact that those books are enjoyed at least as much by parents as by the kids who also love to read them. Let’s just say that we have two much fought over copies of this book at our house.

This one opens where Dragonwatch: Wrath of the Dragon King leaves off. You’re going to want to be sure that you’ve read at least the first two Dragonwatch books first, and most likely the Fablehaven series as well. Don’t worry, though. They are easily read and so great!

I loved that the reader gets to follow several characters in this book. It has points of view from Seth, Kendra, Knox and Tess. I loved the way this made the plot so much more complete than just having one point of view. Each of the characters has a different experience, and they’re not always in the same location.

It was interesting to be with Seth’s character because he had lost his memory and things didn’t always make sense to him. And he wasn’t with the good guys so he was fed lies that he ultimately had to decide if he believed.

I really enjoyed the way the characters grew in this one. The way Kendra had to take everything upon herself and save the day was probably my favorite part. I loved the way the author used darkness and light in that scene. And the way Kendra learned about herself and was able to grow.

I love this series and I can’t wait for more!

I was sent a copy of Dragonwatch: Master of the Phantom Isle as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
