Escape from the Isle of the Lost Reviews

    I bought this book a few weeks ago, but when I heard about Cameron Boyce’s (who plays Carlos in the movies) passing, I knew I just had to read it now. My heart ached every time I came across Carlos in the book. Carlos is such a precious character and from what I hear, Cameron was an amazing person off-screen.

    Like the other book in this series, this book was a lot of fun. These books aren’t meant to be much more than a marketing and promotional tool and I am 100% okay with that. I just love seei

    I bought this book a few weeks ago, but when I heard about Cameron Boyce’s (who plays Carlos in the movies) passing, I knew I just had to read it now.

    Like the other book in this series, this book was a lot of fun. These books aren’t meant to be much more than a marketing and promotional tool and I am 100% okay with that. I just love seeing more of the characters and their lives!

    This book does a nice job setting up the new characters of Hades and Celia. It also shows what Uma has been up to since we last saw her at the end of Descendants 2. I’m very excited to see what they’ll all do in the third movie.

    As always, I love the little Disney references throughout the book. For example, I loved the names of the colleges like Agrabah State University, Magical Institute Training (MIT), and Sherwood Forest University. Students even have to take the SAT (Salagadoola Abracadabra Test). How clever!

    Overall, if you’re a Disney Descendants fan, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book.

    Fun story that sets everything up for the next movie

  • Freya Quinlan

    Want to read so bad!!!!

  • Natalie

    I love all the references to Disney movies and Disney songs! Such a cute series!!!

  • Gavyn golembeski

    Too who ever has this series I recommend getting the villain series by: Serena Valentino. She has a series that tell the backstory of the evil villains. Check the series out and I definitely recommend it to go along with your descendant series. Those are my most favorite series of all time.

  • Aleta

    This whole book felt very... unnecessary. Not much happened. At all. But as I am trash for Descendants, and Disney in general, I still immensely enjoyed it 😜

  • Ursula

    Nothing super special about this installment, but I am always appreciative of some backstory behind the Descendants movies. Today was especially hard for me bc I found out about Cameron Boyce’s passing. Every time I read something about Carols, I was reminded of the tragedy that struck today. God has received a truly talented angel and I am so blessed to have witnessed his talent for all these years. Goodnight Sweet Prince...

    I think we can all collectively agree that Descendants is not deep or complicated or very sophisticated. That goes for the movies, the animation series and the books. But, somehow, somewhere along the way, I've grown really attached to these characters and this world and it's strange to realise that with the third movie and this fourth book, the franchise has really come to an end.

    I think we can all collectively agree that Descendants is not deep or complicated or very sophisticated. That goes for the movies, the animation series and the books. But, somehow, somewhere along the way, I've grown really attached to these characters and this world and it's strange to realise that with the third movie and this fourth book, the franchise has really come to an end.

    Because while reading this book and watching the last movie, I once again realised how amusing and entertaining this is, how the book and the movie make me laugh out loud and how, somehow, they also manage to bring some tears to my eyes. (I really can't deal with goodbyes!) The characters are diverse, the adventures are refreshing and this book got Hades!

    Everyone who knows me, knows that I really love Hades, but his Disney counterpart is not very true to the mythological Hades. This book and even more the movie felt a little like a redemption arc for him and I really enjoyed it to the fullest. Just like I really loved the addition of Celia as a point of view character. She was quite nice and amusing and I wish she got more material!

    But, my highlight of this book: The task being to kiss a prince and Chad Charming kissing his own hand. Brilliant, just brilliant and very Chad. I have a crush on Chad. Can we get Chad a spin off? I'd love that.

    It took me way too long to read this book. It’s a solid 42% for me. I mean, I decently enjoyed it because it’s descendants and it’s got all the Disney allusions that I love in it. However, that’s one of the issue I have with this book. For starters, it has way too many Disney references (specifically children of characters if you know what I’m saying) and expositions for them. Too much to the point where when a new offspring/relative is mentioned, it made the situation more cringey than it alrea

    It took me way too long to read this book. It’s a solid 42% for me. I mean, I decently enjoyed it because it’s descendants and it’s got all the Disney allusions that I love in it. However, that’s one of the issue I have with this book. For starters, it has way too many Disney references (specifically children of characters if you know what I’m saying) and expositions for them. Too much to the point where when a new offspring/relative is mentioned, it made the situation more cringey than it already is. Speaking of how cringe-worthy this book is, lemme tell you, it is. I swear, 80% of this book is just fluff, cheese, and cringe-fest. The writing is kinda childish for me. And I know this is a middle-grade book meant for younger teens, but other ones I’ve read wasn’t written like this, even the previous ones, I feel like. The characterization is just nonexistent at this point. Sometimes, characters do things and says things that is so dull and even out of character. Mal especially is really disappointing. For example, there’s this one scene where she was trying to convince there’s so much more to life than being evil. There’s love and friendship and blah blah blah, all that corny stuff and then she started crying? I know it’s sentimental to her past but come on, she’s “a big, tough girl. Ties [her] own sandals and everything” (Megara from Hercules lmao). But seriously, that wouldn’t happen. And Hades has no personality. He’s just the cliche, retired villain living in a cave. Where’s that sass? I really miss him and all I get is like 10 pages of him yelling, complaining, and being an idiot. Also, a plot doesn’t exist either. Sure, it kinda tells us the setting of the movie and foreshadows us the conflict a little bit (that’s the 20% of the book that I mentioned) but everything else is just stuff from the scale of I kinda care about to I don’t care about this at all.

    If you wanna read the book yourself, go for it. I’m not gonna stop you. You might enjoy more than I did. But if you just wanna know the important things that happened just keep reading. My summary might be shorter than the synopsis lol.

    The VKs and all the other people in their class is graduating. They’re gonna bring 4 more people from the Isle to Aurodon but no one wanted to sign up so the VKs have to go back to the Isle to convince them. Uma and Hades are trying to escape. They did along with Uma’s pirate crew (I think at least cuz that whole sequence was really confusing). They graduated and they’re gonna go their separate ways. Meaning Evie and Doug are opening a boutique and housing the 4 VKs that are coming for the summer, Carlos and Jane are gonna stay and mentor/help with the new VKs, Jay is gonna go the Robin Hood’s college, Lonnie’s gonna continue playing professional tourney, and Mal and Ben might go travelling for a bit.

    I hope I didn’t miss anything.

    ngl this was fairly boring.

    I wish I could say this was worth reading but it barely sets anything up for the movie in 2 months so you really don't have to read this
