Review of Witch & Wizard The Gift by James Patterson

Witch & Wizard, The Gift
By James Patterson

When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift." While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty's suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one... The Execution of the Allgoods.

This is the second book in the Witch & Wizard series. It is about two siblings whose parents are arrested by The One in an ever changing world. A world where books, music, and art have been banned - anything that has any creativity. No one should think for themselves for fear that they could hurt themselves or others. The Allgoods are actually a family of witches and wizards, however; Whit & Wisty didn’t know that until after their parents are arrested. They are left to flee and try to figure out their new powers on their own. They become apart of the resistance living in Freedomland with other teenage kids trying get their world back before it and themselves are destroyed forever.

I would give this book 3 stars. It is fun read with a lot of action. It is good for young kids around the 10-12ish age range. It is clean and easy to read.

I have been thinking of picking this up for my son as he loved the Maximum Ride series. After reading your review it sounds like something I would also like so thanks!
