    BriarRose88: Both have the same futurisitic/controlling setting with strong kids as the main character. They both have the same idea that if the world has become bad, someone needs to do something about it ensure change happens.

Siblings Whit & Wisty are seized by the oppressive government, the New Order. During the process, both discover they have unique powers, and only they have the power to free the world.

James Patterson has a weird sense of humor. ( )
  jothebookgirl | Jan 3, 2017 |
There's too much in this book that you kind of just have to accept as is, which really, in my opinion, lessens its impact. How did this new government take control if so few people knew about the witches and wizards the government wants to protect society from? How come the main characters were only vaguely aware of a regime change (much in the vein of - oh, yeah. We have a completely new government. I heard something about that awhile back...). It appears to be presenting itself as an allegory to Third Reich, but it really falls flat. Parts of the book were worthy of completely zoning out without missing anything interspersed with, "Oh...this is kinda cool..." ( )

Usually I like YA fantasy and, as this one was hyped as 'the next Harry Potter', I eagerly downloaded it and began to read. And thought "it's got to get better than this"...and continued to read...and thought "it's got to get better" ...and...it never got better. ( )

I believe in aristocracy...Not an aristocracy of power, based upon rank and influence, but an aristocracy of the sensitive, the considerate and the plucky. Its members are to be found in all nations and classes, and all through the ages, and there is a secret understanding between them when they meet. They represent the true human tradition, the one permanent victory of our queer race over cruelty and chaos.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316036242, Hardcover)

The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?
