Last Christmas, I was given the second book in the series (Witch & Wizard: The Gift
) without knowing anything about the series, and I loved it. So I bought the first book in the series (Witch & Wizard
) and I thought that was great as well. So I thought I'd buy the third, and final, book.
I'll start [the second paragraph] by saying this is just as good as the other two books - and that's high praise. One noticeable thing that makes this book different to many others is the short chapter length - they're usually a couple of pages long, and this means the books usually end with over 100 chapters. This can be seen as annoying or useful - I personally think it's great for remembering where you stopped reading (if you ever manage to put the book down!).
As with the previous books, some chapters are written by Wisty, some by Whit (they're the main characters and are brother and sister). It can be annoying when many chapters (a.k.a. several pages) are written by one character, but otherwise it's ok.
The plot itself is very, very good. The evil guy - The One - is portrayed evilly and very well. I'd never like to meet him! The detail is also fantastic - when little kids have their skin peeled off it makes you cringe.
Basically, this book is a must read for anyone aged about 10-17. That's just a recommendation, though - people of all ages are likely to enjoy it at least a bit. If you've read the other books, make sure you read this one. If you haven't, then try and start with the other two, but if you don't, this will still introduce you to the series very well.
