(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. 😉

  3. ok first off this is one of the greatest series ever do not go and diss it just to get more popular if you wrote a book it wouldnt even be one half as great as the ones in james pattersons witch and wizzard so buzz off kid.

      • suck a pickle maria because witch and wizard is the best series in the world. i bet if you wrote a book I’d use it as my toilet paper. Also, the fire is one of the best in the book series so yeah…


      • As if I care what toilet paper a random guy uses. And with comments like yours, less people would be likely to pick up this book. But hey, good day to you!

    • The person who posted this review is entitled to their opinion. I for one agree with many of the points made by the reviewer. As to whether or not a book written by the reviewer would be at least half as good as this book… Unless you have read samples of this person’s work and are a well respected literary critic, I don’t really think it’s a good idea to weigh in on the topic.
