The Wizard's Dilemma: The Fifth Book in the Young Wizards Series (Young Wizards #05)by Diane Duane and Michelle Edwards and Krista Marino
Synopses & Reviews
How do you fix what can't be fixed? Only the Transcendent Pig knows, and it's not telling....
But Nita Callahan needs to find out — and soon. Her wizardly partnership with Kit has fallen apart. Much worse, her mother has gotten sick...so sick she may never leave the hospital.
Only one person can help Nita — the One she's devoted her life to fighting.
"This book can be read on several levels — as a gripping and dynamic fantasy for younger teens and a discussion for older teens about destiny and choice and one person's right to affect other lives." VOYA
"The pace is well sustained and the characters continue to grow and develop. Duane isn't afraid of the hard questions in life and prefers to face them, as readers will learn." KLIATT
"A well-crafted plot, occasional dry humor, and appealing main characters will make this novel popular with readers new to the series as well as with Duane's fans." School Library Journal
"Powerful and satisfying on many levels." Kirkus Reviews
Now in paperback--the critically acclaimed fifth book in the bestselling Young Wizards series
The ninth book in the Young Wizards series
In the hotly anticipated ninth installment of the Young Wizards series, Kit and Nita become part of an elite team investigating the mysterious “message in a bottle,” which holds the first clues to the secrets of the long-lost inhabitants of Mars. But not even wizardry can help them cope with the strange events that unfold when the “bottle” is uncorked and a life form from another era emerges.
Though the Martians seem friendly, they have a plan that could change the shape of more than one world. As the shadow of interplanetary war stretches over both worlds, Kit and Nita must fight to master the strange and ancient synergy binding them to Mars and its last inhabitants. If they don’t succeed, the history that left Mars lifeless will repeat itself on Earth.
The fifth book in Duane's Young Wizards series. Nita Callahan needs to find out what the Transcendent Pig knows about fixing what can't be fixed. With her wizardry partnership with Kit in pieces, and her mother ill, Nita knows only one person can help her--the One she's devoted her life to fighting. (Available now)
