"The Fire" is the third installment to James Patterson's Witch and Wizard series, and magical YA story about teenage brother and sister Whit and Wisty Allgood, the two people who have been prophecied to save the world from the evil One Who Is The One. The One has taken away everything we love, music, imagination, art, and magic has been outlawed. With their parents dead, their friends in the resistance dead or scattered, and Wisty sick with the blood plague, victory over The One seems like a pipe dream. The two must dig deep and hone their powers if they will ever be triumphant.
Each chapter is only a couple of pages which makes the whole thing go by super fast. I read this in one shift while at work during the winter, granted, I probably had two customers. Wisty and Whit are sent to a prison of sorts for reasons that they are unaware of. We find out they are being brought in on suspicions of being a witch and wizard. The government is trying to rid the world of all arts--music, books (gasp!) and everything that is important. It seems as if the whole world is on their shoulders, not to mention their parents have gone missing as well. This book takes you on the journey of Wisty and Whit discovering their powers and using them to fight a battle that is bigger than they are.
This is the first in a series and I did enjoy it, but it may have lacked a little substance. I'm hoping since I already know the characters, I will like the second book more. I would definitely suggest at least picking it up at the library if you like YA fantasy books or buy it if you're going to the beach!
I didn't like this book because I think that the book had great potential and could have really been something, but in thend it just flopped. It wasn't nearly long enough to fit the story and could've been tons more descriptive. So, in the end, I give this book a three because it had potential and I'll probably buy the next one just to see if it improved, but it took the potential that it had and brutally tortured it until it was thrown into the book called Witch & Wizard.
Two siblings get caught up in a corrupt government scheme to rid the world(and other worlds...) of non-conforming children. Pretty decent premise and I will probably read whatever comes next in order to see if the series gets any better, but for now I am left a little disappointed.
There is a lack of understanding throughout the novel, the children don't know whats going on with the government or with their wizardry background. They seem a little too laid-back when they come to discover things about the world and themselves. Wouldn't there be more grounds for surprise if they don't understand? I feel that is what this book lacks, hopefully book 2 will do a better job.
