Book Review: Witch & Wizard #2: The Gift by James Patterson

Rating: StarStarStarStar


When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is “The One Who Has the Gift.” While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty’s suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one… The Execution of the Allgoods.


What the H happened?!?!?! — that was my reaction after hitting the epilogue of the book.

This is an awesome read! But the question posed at the start of the book remained unanswered: what is Wisty’s gift that The One wants it so badly?

reading this felt like jumping from to portal to freaking portal (like Whit & Wisty). i never know where the author will take me. some ride!

i love love LOVE Wisty’s character! very defiant and strong and undeterred despite the unfortunate events that followed them. and believe me, there are loads!

Whit is a good character but is overshadowed by Wisty’s. Admit it, Wisty’s POV is much more fun to read than his.

Byron is a very complicated character. but very, very persistent which is admirable. i found it funny that he claimed he loves Wisty and yet every time he gets an opportunity to be with Wisty, she almost always  has 50/50 chance of dying. =D

i’m quite unsure if the author wants to paint Celia in a light or dark side. i was confused – is she really an ally or an enemy?

This is very fast-paced book. so buckle up and prepare for the N.O. attacks on the Freelanders!


“giving up is the ultimate tragedy.”

  1. What’s going on here, Mr. Patterson? Book 2 was dramatic and quick-paced…keeping in tune with book 1…but, really, did you think the ending out at all? if you intend to sequel the story…fine…but there isn’t a hint of an upcoming conclusion. Did you run low on creative juice…or do you simply plan to use the tired adage of, “it’s more fun to figure it out on your own”. Really? Finish what you start.
