Publisher's Summary

When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift". While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty's suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of Book 1... The Execution of the Allgoods.

    "No plot"

    I liked the first book in this series, it was kind of different. However, this one was very disappointing. It really didn't have much of a plot, and was boring and tedious. I didn't even finish listening to it, got through a little over half of it hoping a plot with some meat would develop and it never did and I lost patience and just stopped listening, which I rarely do with a book I actually spent money on.

    Story
    "Patterson does it again!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Patterson has written a young adult series that is very appealing to parents that want to read what their kids read!! Awesome series!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Witch & Wizard: The Gift?

    You really feel like you are part of the book!!


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I love the continuance of the same voices in each of the books. I love Elijah Wood!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I cannot believe it, I couldn't put it down and simply couldn't wait to get the next books in the series. I was so anxious until I could download the second book after I finished the first at one time!!


    Any additional comments?

    Truly an awesome book and looking to be a fabulous series!! Very quick listen - I couldn't turn it off. Thank you so much!

    Story
    "Patterson gave up."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the characters were a bit brighter and deeper. Even for teenagers, they were just not smart or interesting. If there was something more creative about the story - it just seemed to be borrowed from every other fantasy story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Ned Rust again?

    Maybe some of Patterson's older stuff. I don't know anything about Ned Rust so I don't know.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    The narrators were fine, it was just the story that sucked.

    "Horribly Disappointed"

    I really wanted to like this book but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t. I love a good adventure but while this book has lots of events, it didn’t add up to an adventure. After thinking long and hard about why I couldn’t like the book, I realized that the characters were never developed. Stuff happens to them but we never find out who they are other than on a very superficial level. It was very much about how much bad stuff can we have happen to two teenagers but not much about who there are. Without this characterization, it’s hard to really care too much. I won’t be getting any more books in this series.

    "WItch & Wiazrd: the Gift"

    I have been a fan of James Patterson for years and have enjoyed his books immensely. This book was positively awful. Definitely not worth the time or energy to read hoping something worthwhile will transpire. I couldn't wait to finish the book as it was one of the worst I have listened to.

    "it was ok, kinda slow though"

    I enjoyed the book, but alot of the story was really predictable, I would recommend to a younger reader, like 12-15 years old.

    James Patterson is the best I love how his brain works and how his books seem to take you to another world.

    "Tween Novel"

    Super tweenie. I am listening because it's fun but I feel like I would enjoy it more if I were still 11yrs old. I will finish the series though. My curiosity is peaked.
