    "The Young Wizards are growing up"

    I ‘ve been a fan of Diane Duane for many years, and was thrilled when Audible finally offered the latest of the Young Wizards series. The trend over the last few books has been to move away from the innocence and joy of first discovering magic, to a more gritty reality where their powers are needed to fight and defend all their homes.

    The action and pace are consistent throughout, and I was sucked in form the very beginning. The Lone Power sets a plan in motion that, if it succeeds, will greatly increase the rate of entropy (death of the universe). Nita, Kit and the rest of the gang are put through a series of challenges that normally would only fall on the senior wizards. We also learn more about the history of Ponch and the dogs, and many of the other more minor characters.

    I would recommend reading the other book in the Young Wizard series first, as many old characters are reintroduced here, as is the classic situation with the battle against The Lone Power. Something which always amuses me is the incredible leaps of technology from the perspective if the story’s timelines. The first novel is now almost twenty years old, and yet only about three years have passed subjectively, so all the new computers are a bit amusing.

    I’d recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a different take on magic; far different than Harry Potter, yet with the same sense of wonder. As with all good YA novels, this easily appeals to both children and adults.

    Oh, and yeah, I too want a WizPod.
