Wizard's Holiday: Young Wizard Series, Book 7

Rest and relaxation: that's what Nita thinks she's going to get when her little sister, Dairine, signs her up for a wizardly "cultural exchange" program, sending Nita and her partner-wizard Kit halfway across the galaxy over spring break. But nothing about wizardry, not even vacation, is ever quite that simple. Back home, Dairine and her dad have to cope with their side of the exchange.

    "A Great Book"

    I loved this new twist on a "working holiday." Nita and Kit get to go to the beach and relax. While there they have to find out the reason they were sent, after all the 'powers' don't waste energy. Dairine stays home plays host to the exchange-wizards, a motley crew who are the key to a successful visit. All kinds of fun and wizardry ensue. I loved getting to know Dairine better. The only bad part about this book is that it ends. I can't wait till Book 8 hits Audible!

    "great"

    OK, so the series started over 20 years ago, somehow I managed to miss it. We only have two books available to us here, numbers 5 & 7. Since 5 sounds based around the central character's mom's death I decided to start with this one. The story is great, and the reader is great. Youthful wizards which may sound a little like Harry Potter, but it isn't. And there is a lot of humor. I really love the characters, both the central and new to volume characters. So much that I've gone back and bought the first 3 books. I'm hoping 4 & 6 will become available here before I have to do something drastic like buying them also. Even my 14 (almost 15) year old non reader loves these.
