Publisher's Summary

Even though she's on vacation at the beach, young wizard Nita is still on active duty, available to assist any other wizard in distress. So when Nita meets the wizard S'reee, she is bound to promise help. Nita is needed to face the Lone Power, who is threatening life in the oceans. But although S'reee is a wizard, she is also a whale. Nita will need to shapeshift into a sea creature to join her. And when Nita learns that the final confrontation will take place 16,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, she begins to get uneasy. Explaining day-long absences to her curious parents will be tricky, too.

Diane Duane's Young Wizard books are marvelous combinations of fantasy, fast-paced adventure, and realism. As Nita crafts spells and prepares for what could be the ultimate sacrifice, you'll be pulled into her wondrous world. Christina Moore's vivid narration brings out the suspense and magic of each moment.

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

Really Fun!

Any additional comments?

A fantastic novel continuing the series. Christina Moore performs these books so well and keeps you captivated throughout. My kids (8&9) loved listening to this novel and are really looking forward to the next one.

Even better

The first book was so good that I ddn't want to put it down. This one was even better. The details made you imagine you were right there. I won't tell you the ending but for a while it was emotional. You become friends with the characters.

A must read

Fantastic story telling that anyone can enjoy. 2 young wizards embark on a journey to reenact an ancient whale song to save the oceans and prevent another Atlantis like disaster. Are these noobs ready to begin?

a little off track

I enjoyed a number of books in this series , this one did not capture my attention as much. I wish I could say why.

a bit of a let down

i liked the first book ok, but book 2 was a bit of a let down.
but then this is a kids story.
dont get me wrong i love storys about magic.
tho i do like adult humor in the storys.
i tend to like storys by Piers Anthony the most, witch i do have most of. :)
so im trying to find other magic storys i may like.
the two best storys so far are "On a Pale Horse By Piers Anthony" and "The Lost Gate By Orson Scott Card".
but Piers Anthony is my Favorite writer.
so being this is a kids story that may be why i feel it only gets a 2 star rateing from me.

slow but interesting

This book was really slow for the first 5 hours. I kept leaving it and listening to other stories. I finally finished it and enjoyed the ending very much. I can't decide whether I want to continue the series.

Cyberpunk wizardry for kids

Future past magic a not so dark precursor to mr potter that is not so parochial. Besides the setting you can tell it was written in North America vs Europe. More individualism vs linage making a person who they are.
