Evil tree. Bad Apple? Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost--a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain't so bad.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The Isle of the Lost is where all Disney villains are banished—and where the delightfully wicked children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, and Jafar—Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay—have grown up. Tweens will love this upside-down Disney world where kids are rewarded for being bad and few rules apply. Melissa de la Cruz (of Blue Bloods fame) puts her impudent protagonists through their paces, forcing them to work together in order to succeed in a dangerous quest. The novel makes a deviously fun companion to the TV movie Descendants.

I loved the ending it had an amazing twist to it I totally recommend it
Overall Amazing! Recommended!
I watched all 3 of the movies before I contemplated whether or not if I should read the books. I debated it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth purchasing - I nearly got the audiobook, which is why I hesitated. However, the price is affordable. I finished the book within 4 days after I had bought this; it was so addicting that you kind of dive in the story and you feel entranced.
The relationship between the characters - it was the bond between four villains, who don’t admit themselves as friends, but they all had something in common. It was moments like that, it makes you more interested.
Beside my whole entire rambling, the story is my ultimate favorite and I recommend it to anyone who’s a Disney fan.
