Review: Witch and Wizard by James Patterson


Whisty and Whit Allgood are a brother and sister who live in a world ruled by the one who is the one. They are taken from there family in the middle of the night and thrown in jail accused of being a witch and wizard. Thousands of young people are in the same predicament. The ruling regime will stop at nothing to suppress life and liberty. Whit and Whisty are the chosen ones set to lead the rebellion and release the prisoners from this world of tyranny.

I really love dystopian novels and this one was no exception. The world created by James Patterson is a world where the children are persecuted like adults so in turn act like adults. This make for a very interesting story. I did not find this to be a slow read. There really isn't a romantic element to the story yet, although this world is set to be a series so that may come with time. There is a pretty big cliff hanger at the end but I'm sure with the next book coming out the cliff hanger is well worth it. Overall, not a bad read if you enjoy dystopian novels.
