Reviewed by Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite

The Blue Medallion by Kate Lutter is book two in The Wild Island Series. Lily Pattenson, a half-human-half revenant, conceals her identity as a descendant of the Lost Colony of Roanoke known to survive as immortals on Wild Point Island. Accused of wrongdoing, she must return to the island to prove her father's innocence and restore her reputation. Aligning with Nicholas Johnson, the island's powerful High Councilor, she can gain access to the time portal in the obelisk to obtain evidence. However, to do so, she must surrender her cherished blue medallion, which traps her on the island indefinitely. Nicholas seeks the medallion to defeat the Council and restore justice after ruling the island for 400 years.

I've been on a Roanoke history kick for about a year and was looking for something that was a little more creative to fill the void. The Blue Medallion by Kate Lutter fits the bill perfectly. It's only based on the Lost Colony but, frankly, this was a “you had me at Roanoke” situation. I love the backstory and the seamless way Lutter transitions new readers in comfortably. Revenants will die off on the island but, having 400 years to perfect a way to bend that, portals, alliances, technology, and centuries of wisdom all commingle nicely. Lily mucked up big time previously but it's hard not to feel sorry for her when she gets blind-sided by a contract that shows how a powerful man's view of a woman's worth hasn't changed much since 1590. Later Lutter provides a twist that changes our perspective somewhat. Between strong character development, plot twists, emotional depth, immersive world-building, and fantasy elements, the exploration of themes such as family and loyalty that transcend fantasy make Lutter's work relatable and a joy to read.


The Blue Medallion Book Two The Wild Island Series by Kate Lutter is an exciting read that takes readers on a thrilling adventure. It tells the story of Lily Pattenson, a half-human-half revenant banished from Wild Point Island as a child. On her journey back to the island, she must align herself with Nicholas Johnson, the powerful High Councilor who can give her access to a time portal she needs to prove her father's innocence.
The story is full of suspense and mystery, as it unfolds each twist and turn of the complex plot. This novel contains captivating characters and superbly crafted storylines that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very end. It is also an enlightening journey into the world of Roanoke, as Lily must face difficult decisions in order to restore justice and save her father.
This is a great read for fantasy fans and those looking for an adventure story with thought-provoking themes. It offers readers an exciting escape from reality, while still giving them enough to think about and reflect on. The novel has plenty of action, mystery, and romance that will keep readers coming back for more.
It is also a great introduction to the world of fantasy literature for those new to the genre. The author does an excellent job breaking down complex themes into easy-to-understand concepts, making it a great comprehensive beginner's guide for anyone wanting to explore the genre.
Overall, The Blue Medallion Book Two The Wild Island Series by Kate Lutter is an enthralling and thrilling read that will keep you hooked until the end. With its captivating characters, suspenseful plotlines, and thought-provoking themes, it's a great choice for readers of all ages!


I didn't read the first book, but as the author suggested, it can hold its own as a stand-alone. I learned what a remnant is! Lily was a strong, well-developed character. Her mission is defined, and along the way there are multiple barriers to the end game. And some romance is the icing on the cake! Great read!

As unique as a revenant, The Blue Medallion will draw you into the fantasy world of Wild Point Island where revenants have lived for over 400 years. Lily, the heroine of this story, is a lawyer on the mainland of North Carolina, having been banished from Wild Point Island with her mother and sister when she was young. She is half human, half revenant and intended to live the human life away from the island. But she is summoned to Wild Point Island to represent an alleged murderer, and can’t refuse the demand of the High Councilor.
Ms. Lutter flawlessly weaves a story of adventure, fantasy and romance into this well-plotted book, where family secrets, loyalties, and mysteries abound.

Kate Forest

This story combines a romance with a twisty plot. In order to clear her father from crimes he didn't commit, she must do the things that endanger her the most. She has to trust Nicholas, who might not have her best interests at heart. She's sucked back into the life she escaped. The main characters are relatable and the world building is excellent. You'll be transported to a different place and time, that's not far from the real life.
