Book Review: Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

Return to the Isle of the Lost (Descendants, #2)Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to say, this book is better than the first book, which is weird for me because normally the second book don’t do well than the first. But when I started reading this book, I was instantly hooked all the way to the last page. So the Descendants of the Disney Villains (Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, the Evil Queen, and Jafar) Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos, are quite happy in Auradon-going to Auradon Prep, playing for the Auradon Knights, making friends, even dating King Ben-but of course, did you think their happiness was going to last?

Even when they started to get weird messages about going back to the Isle of the Lost?

At first, they thought it was their parents sending them that message-but Maleficent’s a small lizard, sleeping away in a little glass, and Cruella, Evil Quen and Jafar? Nowhere to be found. Then Carlos found the DarkNet, where there was a photo of the four of them, calling them the ‘AntiHeros’ and have a red X over their faces including over King Ben. So the four of them decided to go back to Isle of the Lost, but after the dance.

But it took some planning, especially when Jay had an interview with Jordan and tricked her into wishing he had the keys to the royal limo (like why Jay why) but once they went to the dance for the Auradon Knights and had to fake that they’re sick, they went to the limo to go back to the Isle of the Lost.

They were stopped by King Ben that was coming back from Camelot because they were having a dragon problem and thought the dragon was Maleficent, but towards the end it wasn’t. He was wondering why they have the limo and how Carlos can drive a car, but once Mal explaned what was going on, he let them go back to the Isle.

When they went back to the Isle of the Lost, they started looking for their parents. Jafar left Iago at the Junk Shop, but Jay did try and steal Anthony Tremaine’s watch, but slipped it in his pocket, Mal went back to Bargain Castle only to find her things left untouched, so she took a backpack and packed it with her things, the Evil Queen left her heart box, and Cruella left her fur coats.

So where were they?

Underground. Looking for their talismans-The Golden Coba, the Ring of Envy, the Dragon’s Egg and Fruit of Venom.

So once they met the AntiHeros Club, they went to find the four talismans before their parents do. And they did, even though they had some obstacles, but they passed them. Then at the end, it turns out the purple dragon wasn’t Maleficent, but was Mad Maddy’s grandmother, Mim, and they stopped her before she destroyed anyone else. And then they returned to the Auradon, and everything was back to normal….for now.
