Publisher's Summary

As young wizards, Nita and her friend, Kit, share magic spells and spectacular adventures. Twice, they have successfully thwarted a dark power called the Lone One. Each victory has protected the universe against its paralyzing force, for a while. But now Darine, Nita's 10-year-old sister, has found her wizard's manual. With the help of a laptop computer, Darine has not only absorbed the book's wisdom, she has become a powerful wizard herself. Setting off on a jaunt to distant galaxies, Darine doesn't realize she is headed toward a confrontation with the Lone One. Can Nita and Kit find her in time to help?

Children love Diane Duane's works for their fast-paced combination of sorcery and suspense. She adds wonderful technological twists to this third book in her Young Wizard series, and narrator Christina Moore's voice adds just the right touch of magic.

You can listen to Diane Duane's entire Young Wizard series.

What the Critics Say

"Duane is tops in the high adventure business....Deftly pairing comic and sensitive scenes, this rollicking yarn will delight readers as they watch Darine's transformation from pesky kid sister to strong-willed heroine." (Publishers Weekly)
"Christina Moore's narration imbues Darine with intelligence, impatience, and arrogance....Moore's vocal flexibility truly shines through." (AudioFile)

    "Great Book, Unique Narrator"

    Ive read the books before, and loved them greatly. The narrator makes this book even more special. While Christina Moore (The narrator) may not have a wide range of tones, she excells at different cadence and accents for the realistic characters found in this book.

    "Great book!!!"

    My daughter and I loved this book. We have read the paper copies and listen to the audio books while at she waits for me at work. It is fun to share the joy of books together.

    "And the series marches on...."

    Okay, if you've read the first two books, you're going to read this. And you're going to be surprised.

    I always felt that the earlier books had a Heinlein flavor... it really comes through in this book, which adds a heavy sci-fi element to the mix.

    I am still amazed at how intelligent these books are, and how much thought went into the rules of the world.

    Of course, it has the compelling characters that brought us this far, and I really love what she did with Darine.
