This was actually so awful it was hilarious. I don't know what I expected???? But this is like fanfiction. Badly written fanfiction that is. BUT I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN WITH HOW BAD IT WAS. I'M CRYING AND LAUGHING. Ahem.I'm not angry or anything! Usually my 1-star reviews are furious. But thisI justI cannot even, omg. It would honestly be better for 12-year-olds? It is a light, fluffy, silly, "evil" adventure story. (But kind of insulting to Disney, I think???) BUT YEAH.All The Reasons Why This [...]

At times reminding me of both Halloweentown and the potions classes in Harry Potter, The Isle of the Lost serves up some classic Disney Channel Monstober feels. Unfortunately, with the way that their original programming has been lately I doubt the actual movie will be as good as this prequel novel.Can I just take a second to complain about continuity? Disney has its original classic animated fairytale movies, Once Upon a Time, and the new revised live action films such as Maleficent, so what is [...]

This isn't the most riveting of stories, but it has charm. I love how it is focused on the classic villains and their children, but it still has that Disney feel to it. Even though these main characters are supposed to be "evil" the story ends on a heartwarming note and there are relatable themes with a moral to the story. It's overall very cute and fun to see all the Disney characters in one book.

4 stars!

When I first heard about this book, I knew I just had to read it. I was already planning on watching the Descendants movie on Disney Channel, so I knew I had to read the prequel. I liked this book a lot. I loved all the Disney references, particularly how Gaston's twin boys were named Gaston Jr. and Gaston the Third. This was basically a well written Disney fan fiction. I was afraid it would be too juvenile, but it wasn't. If you like the show, Once Upon A Time, you'll definitely like this book. [...]

Does what it sets out to do, and does it with great fun. I normally wouldn't have picked up a tie-in book for a TV movie, but I love just about anything Disney, and my kids and I are looking forward to the Disney Channel "Descendants" movie this summer. Also what caught my eye is that this is a prequel, and it's written by Melissa de la Cruz, a legit bestselling author. And it has to be said that the book is gorgeously designed with one of those suede-feel covers and a thorn design on the chapte [...]

The Isle Of The Lost by Melissa de La Cruz is a prequel to the upcoming Disney Channel movie, The Descendants and it follows the children of Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Jafar and The Evil Queen from Snow White. This novel really does an excellent job of setting up what transpired after happily ever after and capturing our favorite despicable villains on the page. Not only is this novel extremely engrossing, it has a plethora of snarky humor that will make readers laugh and smile on nearly every [...]

As a child I know I would have loved this book (and probably series) but unfortunately as an adult it was difficult to get through. The plot needed to be developed more and not so all over the place. I won't be continuing the series.

When I first started reading this book, I didn't know it is a prequel to the Disney movie Descendants. If I had, I probably wouldn't have read it. In the story, all the villains from all the Disney movies have been banished to the Isle of the Lost (even if they died in the films) where they have to live without magic and off the scraps from the U.S.A. (United States of Auradon) for the rest of their days. Sigh. Of course all the villains end up having children - yet there are only single parents [...]

Isle of the Lost gave me that same feeling of watching those campy kids live action Disney movies from my childhood. The characters were over dramatized and situations a bit silly at times but it was all in good fun.I think this rag tag group of wannabe teen villains spawned from the classic Disney villains will win over the readers that love those Disney movies. Though I guess it could go the other way but I think I enjoyed it because I went into reading it expecting it to be campy. I watched t [...]

melissa413readsalotI thought this book was really cute. It's a very interesting concept about the children of fairy tale villains. Granted the parents are in the book, but it's mostly about their children. I thought that was awesome. We have Mal, daughter of Maleficent. Evie, daughter of The Evil Queen, Jay, son of Jafar and Carlos, son of Cruella De Vil. As you can read in the blurb all of the evil villains were put under a dome (Not Stephen King's Dome) by King Beast. He and some other fairy t [...]

3.5/5I really want to see the movie of this or TV show whatever. It sounds interesting. As for the book: I was quite bored with the first half of this. If the characters weren't so interesting themselves, I would've gave up on this. I liked Mal because she was devious, I liked Jay because he's a classic bad boy (and his thieving reminds me low key of Kaz Brekker). Evie was cute and nice, but still had her villainous streak, tho definitely not as pronounced as the others. And Carlos was just awes [...]

This is a Disney story involving most of the classic villains. I really enjoyed how all four of the characters were well explained, and also how Mal changes throughout the story. One more thing that was really interesting is, how different the book and the movie were, though the movie was based on the book. I can relate to Mal on how somebody didn't want to hang out with me when I was three, and I was really sad about it. I understood that sometimes in life is, people change people. I also notic [...]

Wow this book was enchanting. I always loved the villains more then the heroes because the villains are so interesting and mysteries. The characters were amazing and I loved how every Disney villain had a son or a daughter. I gave it a four stars because it didn't grip me that much.But overall this book was fantastic and highly entertaining.

I love Melissa de la Cruz. I loved her since I read the Blue Bloods series and a few of the Ashleys books. And I love Disney-Hyperion and my local librarian. Disney-Hyperion sent over some book swag to the librarian and she gave it to me. It was wickedly adorable. It was a crate filled with poisoned apples (stress balls), a card (that when you opened it, the card laughs evilly) and a book excerpt. Then Disney-Hyperion sent over the ARC of ISLE OF THE LOST because I loved the book swag. So thank [...]

First of all, I got the ebook version for this book for me to read (because the hardcover one was so expensive) and I desperately wanted to finish this as soon as possible because the movie will be up anytime this year. And then, after I read this book, I feel like I’m in loveee!OH MY GOD, this book was so good. I love the author’s writing style and the characters are all so good. They’re all wicked and lovely (for some reason, lol). I also love the plot in this story. Melissa de la Cruz d [...]

I don't really think I can say enough about this book. This book really brought me back to my childhood. Even though it's marketed toward kids, adult Disney fans will love it, and I can promise that! I met characters that I've been away from for so long. Pongo, Iago, Beast and Belle, Jafare list goes on and on and on, and I found myself smiling at all of the breif cameos -- hello, Flotsam and Jetsam! . It's incredibly refreshing to stumble across a well written kids' book. Where the world seems [...]
