I really liked this book in the series, the only problem that I had with it was the characters lack of ability to realize that certain people were dead...just because they can go visit them in another realm does not mean they can necessarily come home with you... ( )

Welcome to your worst nightmare,
or maybe one you can't even imagine.
A world where everything has changed.
There are no books, no movies,
no music, no free speech.
Everyone under eighteen is distrusted.
You and your family could be taken
away and imprisoned at any time.
Your very being is expendable,
even unwanted.

What world is this? Where could
something like this have happened?
That's hardly the point.

The point is that it DID happen.
It's happening to us right now.
And if you don't stop and pay attention,
it could happen in your world next.

Recommended to:
Young adults and adults who enjoy fantasy & magic. An edge of your seat book. There is some violence & death and a bit of nail biting action.

My thoughts:
Once again we are plunged into the world of Whit & Wisty Allgood, the Witch and Wizard. They are learning to control their powers and continuing to lead the resistance in the fight against The One Who is The One. They are fighting for the future of their world, while the New Order (N.O.) is brainwashing and torturing children to turn them into killing machines. The stakes are higher than ever and Whit & Wisty are in more danger than ever.

This is a great series, lots of adventure & danger and twists & turns. Like all Patterson books, the chapters are short and fly by. I finished this book in one day. ( )

Absolutely terrible! I have now read all three books in this series and it was a complete waste of time. For as good as the Maximum Ride series is, this series is just as bad. ( )

Wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but what should I expect of Patterson's throwaway novels. ( )

In “The Fire,” the third book of the “Witch & Wizard” series, Patterson continues having Whit, Wisty and members of the Resistance battle in the Overworld and the Shadowland. The One is still chasing Whit and Wisty, revealing his desire to claim Wisty’s Gift of Fire so he can become a god. Readers are introduced to Pearce, another crazy and power hungry New Order puppet who kills his victims by disintegrating their faces. He is working for The One to capture Wisty, but has his own agenda.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316101907, Hardcover)

Whit and Wisty Allgood have sacrificed everything to lead the resistance against the merciless totalitarian regime that governs their world. Its supreme leader, The One Who Is The One, has banned everything they hold dear: books, music, art, and imagination. But the growing strength of the siblings' magic hasn't been enough to stop the One's evil rampage, and now he's executed the only family they had left.

Wisty knows that the time has finally come for her to face The One. But her fight and her fire only channel more power to this already invincible being. How can she and Whit possibly prepare for their imminent showdown with the ruthless villain that devastated their world-before he can truly become all-powerful?

In this stunning third installment of the epic Witch & Wizard series, the stakes have never been higher--and the consequences will change everything.
