Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While Nita grieves over her mother's death, Kit tackles a challenge as dangerous as it is strange: Rescue a young wizard who has vanished on his first assignment. This new wizard is unlike any other — he's autistic and he's a magical prodigy. His power is enormous. Now Kit and his dog, Ponch, must track down the missing boy before the Lone Power finds him.

Review:

"Even readers who have not followed Nita and Kit through five previous adventures will find this a fine fantasy....Musings about serious subjects are an integral part of the story, but Duane's humor and her gift for the offhand quip never falter." Booklist

Review:

"This sixth book in the series covers a lot of ground. Readers who haven't read the previous books may be a little lost at first, but Duane's characters and plot will quickly draw them in." School Library Journal

Review:

"Duane takes her story and her audience seriously without getting in the way of narrative or characters or making the plot drag....[A] smoothly written, engrossing addition to the Young Wizards series." KLIATT

Review:

"Duane's explanations for the properties of magic and its workings will charm new readers in a wonderful fantasy that marries magic and wizardry with the natural world and the rules that all its denizens must follow." VOYA

Synopsis:

Now available in paperback — the sixth book, in which Kit is given a dangerous assignment: rescue a young wizard who vanished on his first assignment.
