About the Book
Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos are the offspring of some of the most terrible villains of all time. They're offered a chance to leave the Isle of the Lost, where they have been imprisoned all their lives, and go to prep school in the idyllic kingdom of Auradon with all of the "good" kids. There, they must choose whether or not to follow in their parents' evil footsteps. Watch out Auradon--here come the Descendants!

My Take on the Book
My eldest daughter has been looking forward to seeing this new series, and as someone that enjoys watching the Once Upon A Time Series, I too was looking forward to see the series. That being said I was excited to read this to gain a better understanding of the premise behind the series and this book delivers.

This book is the introduction to the group of teenagers called the Descendants. They are the children of story book villains. The four teens are: Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos. They are the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella DeVille. Within the story the reader also meets the children of story book prince and princes. In this particular story Prince Ben convinces Mal and her friends to attend the school associated with the prince and princesses. You can imagine the conflicts at first, challenges, emotions, and events.

The story is interesting to read. It will keep the reader engaged from chapter to chapter. There is plenty of good dialogue between the characters that is written well. The descriptions of places and events is written well too. There are photographs from the movie included in the book.

So as the reader becomes engaged, he or she will ask if good will overcome evil. What will Mal and her friends do in the book when confronted with good but their parents are evil (villains). By the end you really have a great understanding of the characters, their powers, the plot and more. By the end of this book my daughter and I were definitely ready for more and are even more excited for the movie itself and the ending won't disappoint the reader either.
