 Opening the bridge between Auradon and the Isle was the easy part – bringing two disparate cultures together will be the real challenge that Mal must face. Realizing that she needs help, Mal brings on as consuls the two people who best personify their respective homes: Audrey for Auradon and Uma for the Isle of the Lost. They're charged with helping Mal introduce their own cultures to a whole new audience… but how? As far as Mal sees it, they can only really truly understand the issues that the people of Auradon and the Isle of the Lost will face by first experiencing it for themselves, which means that Audrey will need to live a day in Uma's life on the Isle and Uma in Audrey's shoes in Auradon. This experience – full of embarrassing missteps and unexpected situations – opens up Audrey and Uma's eyes to just how inattentive they'd been to the challenges faced by those who'd grown up elsewhere and inspires them to join forces with Mal to find a better solution to truly integrate their cultures.

Author Biography

Jason Muell is an American translator, author, and blogger currently living in Tokyo. A chance encounter with Sailor Moon re-runs on TV back in 1997 started a life-long passion that led him to pursue a degree in Japanese history before moving to Japan in 2008 in pursuit of his dream to become a translator. Nowadays, he keeps himself busy translating light novels and manga, writing comic scripts, and running a blog devoted to researching obscure anime trivia. As legend has it, Natsuki Minami was born with a pen in her hand and a passion for drawing. A Tokyo native, Natsuki fell in love with American animation from a young age and knew that she wanted to pursue a career in art and illustration where she could marry Japanese manga storytelling with Western art styles. After working as an in-house designer for a major mobile game developer, she went freelance in 2014 to chase her dreams. Her primary works include puzzles, calendars, serialized manga (web & print), comics, and several self-published manga and artbooks.
