Novella Review: Uncharted: An On The Island Novella by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Uncharted: An "On the Island" Novella
Title: Uncharted: an On The Island Novella
Author: Tracey Garvis-Graves
Series: On The Island #1.5
Publication Date: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Dutton

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.

Uncharted by Tracey Garvis Graves is a must read for fans of On The Island. Uncharted introduces us to Owen Sparks, and tells his story about living on the island. Uncharted reminds me of everything I loved about On the Island and I could not have put it down if I tried. Tracey Garvis Graves has an amazing talent at write stories that a beautiful and tragic at the same time, and leave the reader craving more. 

Uncharted gives us a glimpse of T.J. and Anna’s life while introducing Owen Sparks. Owen Sparks story about his time on the island. It is not a life and death situation like T.J. and Anna, but it is not without tragedy. As I consumed Uncharted, I loved experiencing the island where T.J. and Anna were stranded through different events and with a different perspective. 

On the Island will remain one of my all-time favorite books, and Uncharted has me craving even more of Anna, T.J. and Owen. I am very excited to see where the story will go from here when Isle of Bones is released, because I know that whatever Tracey has planned will have me completely enthralled from beginning to end. I guess Covet will have to hold me over until Isle of Bones.
