Description: The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world

Mini Book Review: Dear James, you know I love you, but what the heck? This is one of the worst pieces of fiction I have ever read.  There is zero characterization and I felt absolutely nothing for ANY of the characters.  The story, while fast paced, is seriously dull and I had to force myself to keep reading it. I kept hoping it would get better, but it didn't.  The idea for the story is fantastic but the execution is a joke.  What really bothered me is that the story is geared for teenagers, but treats them like morons.  You can't tell me that these two kids never noticed what was going on in their world. Quite frankly if I was a teen I would be thouroughly offended by how little you think of them my friend.  I know a lot of people pick on you for your stories, but I have always enjoyed you because at least you were a good storyteller.  This is sooo not your best work sir and I will not be reading the rest of the series.   That being said the series might be ok for the more reluctant reader. And don't worry James, I will keep on reading you -- just don't disappoint me again ok : )   See you at BEA, I will be waiting in line to have a chance to chat with you -- and will TRY  not to ask you what Nathan Fillion is really like -- I will try, I promise!
