I loved LOST CHILDREN OF THE FAR ISLANDS. It was spellbinding! The many cliffhangers all lead to unexpected outcomes. Emily Raabe had me guessing what would happen next, and then I found out that I was completely and utterly wrong. The characters were mysterious and outgoing. I definitely hope that there will be a sequel to LOST CHILDREN OF THE FAR ISLANDS, maybe even another three or four books. My favorite character was Gus because she is so much like my best friend, she has the same interests and the same goals. I also liked the Bedell because he was trustworthy in the end.
