Ever since Whit and Wisty Allgood were cruelly torn from their home and family in the middle of the night, the soldiers of a brutal totalitarian government have relentlessly tried to capture and execute them for 'collusion, conspiracy, and experimentation with the dark and foul arts'. But this supremely skilled witch and wizard have instead boldly spearheaded the fight against the wicked regime of the New Order and its systematic destruction of music, art, books, and imagination. The villainous leader of the New Order is just a breath away from the ability to control the forces of nature and to manipulate his citizens on the most profound level imaginable - through their minds. There is only one more thing he needs to triumph in his evil quest: the Gifts of Whit and Wisty Allgood. And he will stop at nothing to seize them.

      This book is absolutely AMAZING! I read this book before the first one without realizing and it didn't matter. James Patterson does such a terrific job at describing every event and making you feel like you are in the adventure with Whit and Wisty. YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!

        I love this series! One of my favorites. I was a little shocked when I compared publication dates of books 1 and 2 in my reading teacher's class, only to find that I had read the second one first! A minor error on my part. Other than that, I loved this series, and easily breezed through it. This book picks up quickly, so I strongly recommend it to people who think books are boring, or simply find no interest in them.

                  This is a really good book it draws you in and keeps you reeding right until the end. If you are not magic like me than this would be a great book.
