Whit and Wisty Allgood have sacrificed everything to lead the resistance against the merciless totalitarian regime that governs their world.

But the growing strength of the siblings' magic hasn't been enough to stop the One's evil rampage, and now he's executed the only family they had left.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND ONE HERE.
Wisty knows that the time has finally come for her to face The One. But her fight and her fire only channel more power to this already invincible being.

THERE IS NO HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
In this stunning third installment of the epic Witch & Wizard series, the stakes have never been higher—and the consequences will change everything.”
My Rating: ê ê ê ê ê
My Review: James Patterson certainly know how to mix humor, fast-paced action, and magic with a horrible evil, and a scary society. This dystopian story has some thing in common with other ones, but is still vastly different in how it’s executed. This 3rd book it just as good as the 1st two. It’s in present tense, so how feel like it’s happening and you don’t want to stop because you got to find out what happens next. I’m a huge fan off James’ Maximum Ride series, and this series seems to pull some of the best stuff out of both MR and Daniel X, but with a dystopian twist and magic.
I love how JP changes the names of book series, TV shows, Celebs and other stuff in pop culture just slightly that it’s easy to guess who or what he means. In the back of the book they have all the banned thing and It’s fun to read those. It’s scary to think one guy could just take over the country and take away everything we ever loved. I doubt that could really happen, but you never know. This guy is worse than Communism or Hitler. This guy is against art and culture, not just one people, but all.
Read this series. You won’t regret it. Especially if you love dystopian fiction.
Cover Art Review: Not to fond of the big letters, but like the fire and the girl even if the are on a big F for failure. lol
