Frequently on the New York Times Best-Sellers list, the Witch and Wizard series, by James Patterson is a great read for your down time, while not caught up in the heavy school work demanded by the spring semester.
The book is a tale of two ordinary teenagers, Whisty and Whit Allgood, who are kidnapped by members of the world’s new government, the New Order, to find out they are considered very “dangerous”, and are witches and wizards.
In the series, they must use their wizardly powers to take down the New Order and save other kids, in an attempt to revert society back to its state before the New Order took over.
The adventures and obstacles the teens face on a daily basis are very amusing and fun to read. Patterson makes you feel as if you were right there in the book with Whisty and Whit, saving the world against their new horrific government.
Even though the characters are in a fictional world, Patterson makes them relatable to teens today.
For instance, the two main characters in the series deal with friendship, broken hearts and the difficulty of interacting with adults.
Witch and Wizard is a very well-written book that will keep its readers continually turning the pages.
Patterson does a brilliant job of adding more and more suspense to make you want to keep buying the newest book in the series.
So far, the Witch and Wizard series has produced three installments, Witch and Wizard, Witch and Wizard: The Gift, and Witch and Wizard: Battle for Shadowland, which have all been great successes.
Patterson is now in the process of making a new addition to the fictional series, Witch and Wizard: Operation Zero.
In addition to Witch and Wizard, Patterson has produced other successful books such as Kiss the Girl, Maximum Ride and Woman’s Murder Club. These books have helped propel Patterson to be the top selling book author, selling 220 million copies worldwide.
The newest edition will be on bookshelves starting March 22, so be on the lookout so you can read the next tale of the story of Witch and Wizard.
