Witch & Wizard by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet -- A Book Review
Wisty and Whit are pulled from their house in the middle of the night by New Order soldiers. They are accused of being a witch and wizard. They deny the allegations while serving time in a detention center.
As the situation grows bleaker, this brother and sister realize their powers. Through the help of old and new friends they escape and work to rescue fellow inmates from their death sentences.
Soon they learn they are part of prophecies that make them a threat to the New Order. They work to figure out how they can bring down this oppressive government while searching for their parents.
James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet entertain the reader with their realistic depiction of a close sibling relationship put to the test. They also horrify readers with the imposing government juggernaut called the New Order. Patterson and Charbonnet change point of view effectively through the book.
The story and characters pull us into their world and make us hope for the best. The fast paced book leaves the reader looking for more.
