(Witch & Wizard #3)
Whit and Wisty Allgood have sacrificed everything to lead the resistance against the merciless totalitarian regime that governs their world. Its supreme leader, The One Who Is The One, has banned everything they hold dear: books, music, art, and imagination. But the growing strength of the siblings’ magic hasn’t been enough to stop the One’s evil rampage, and now he’s executed the only family they had left.
Wisty knows that the time has finally come for her to face The One. But her fight and her fire only channel more power to this already invincible being. How can she and Whit possibly prepare for their imminent showdown with the ruthless villain that devastated their world-before he can truly become all-powerful?
In this stunning third installment of the epic Witch & Wizard series, the stakes have never been higher–and the consequences will changee verything.

James Patterson ran out of fuel. The Fire started out great, but Whit & Wisty STILL could not figure out their Magic. For goodness sake, it’s the third book already! Surely, they thought of something by now on how to defeat The One Who Is The One. *sigh* No. still not there… until the last few pages. What a disappointing final book (i hope it’s the last one) for one of my fave series.
Whit was so indecisive. A lot of things he wanted to do. Kiss Janine (the cute revolutionary)? Save Celia (his dead girlfriend)? Save Wisty? Save his parents? It was very tiring. Wisty is hot and cold all time. Kill The One Who Is The One. But I’m afraid. Kill The One Who Is The One. But I’m terrified. Kill The One Who Is The One. But I don’t know how to use my Gift! Wait, what is my Gift again??? Sheesh. My head ached for the all the going in circles of the story.
I really liked Witch & Wizard and The Gift. Unfortunately, The Fire is a failure in so many ways. The only thing i liked about it is Byron. Hey, Weasel!
Have you started this series yet? If yes, then don’t bother reading The Fire. Leave me a message, then I will summarize it up for you. I want to spare you the burden, that’s all. 😉
