Uncharted (On the Island #1.5) by Tracey Garvis-Graves


Tracey Garvis Graves - and Anna and T.J. - return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the Island

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.

Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind.

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago.

And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined.

Uncharted includes an early look at Covet, coming September 2013.

FINAL RATING: ★★★/★★★★★




This is a story that comes after the book "On the Island", and is not meant to be standalone. When i saw that there is a novel about T.J. and Anna again, i was excited. Alas, this is not their story: this is story of Owen and his planned solitude on the island. His decisions were the key point and he regretted them the moment he heard about T.J.'s and Anna's entrapment on the island...

Owen is a wealthy young man whose family is careless and selfish.. And he decides to move to the island indefinitely to sort things out and to escape from the world. But this is not only his story... This is a story of "Bones" as well.  

It was slow, dragging and i didn't particularly care about anyone in this novel, but it was nice seeing the duo again and i am glad to see more of their lives together. It shows how much their lives had been different, the contrast between survival and vacation on the same island, same conditions and same wild island. But overall, it was just nice novel.

  1. Great review Kris =)
    I agree with you and I believe we come not to care that much about the other characters because of how difference his experience was...not that I wished he had gone through something like that, but it added the injustice of it all...
