“Not on My Patch” is a Halloween themed short story from Nita’s perspective. Nita, Kit, Ronan, and Dairine are all going out trick or treating and they run into some mischief. It really doesn’t go much beyond that, although I did love Dairine’s jedi costume.

In this story set after A Wizard of Mars, Nita and her friends just want to have a fun, relaxing Hallowe'en. Is that too much to ask?

It's as fun as all the Young Wizards stories are, and Duane as usual writes characters you start caring about almost immediately. She also manages to include both classic and current Hallowe'en pop culture references at the same time. ( )

First words
Nita Callahan was standing by the dining room table, scowling at it and having second thoughts about the items laid out ready on it for her...especially the big sharp knife.
Is it all right if I destroy your sister a little?
Revolting. Got any more?
Any decent lightsword's completely silent. What kind of lamebrain builds weapons that let the bad guys hear you coming?

Book description
In the remote mountain village where she was born, Mariarta dil Alicg lives the untroubled life of a peasant girl...until, soon after a mysterious stranger's arrival, she starts to hear voices in the wind. The voices whisper strange secrets in Mariarta's ears -- promising her the power to command the stormwind, hinting at an unknown, magical heritage, and prophesying a fate marvelous past all Mariarta's imaginings.

Mariarta's search for the truth about the beautiful and terrible creature attempting to possess her body and soul will lead her into hidden domains of sorcery both dreadful and wondrous, and finally embroil her in the growing rebellion against her land's cruel Austriac oppressors. But not before Mariarta comes face to face at last with the immortal Lady of the Storms, and challenges her to one final battle for control of her life, her soul, and her destiny...
