    • Mig says:

      UPDATE (Aug 2014): Oh thank god this is the last book. I still wish he really ended the series with the 3rd book even if it wasn't satisfying.Here we go again. You said The Fire was the last book, then poof suddenly The Kiss came out of nowhere! AND NOW THERE'S ANOTHER BOOK!Please stop. Now. Please make this the last book in the Witch and Wizard (trilogy) series. Don't repeat what you did to Maximum Ride. (Now I'm not sure if his ghostwriters did write books 4-8 but I'm sure James Patterson has [...]

      I'm expecting nothing but the best from this new book. Possible further exploration of the world beyond the former City of Progress? Hey, here's another idea - howsabout if this turns out to be set in some postapocalypse in the Max Ride-verse? Sure, it sounds like the stuff of so much fanfic, but wouldn't it just be awesome?Update #1: I'm finally ready to start reading this one! *vibrates with excitement*Review:Holy M. As always, the Witch and Wizard world makes an awesome story. Here, we have a [...]

      HELLO PEOPLE! I can't WAIT for this book to come out. It COULDN'T just END there.

    • LeonaCarstairs says:

      I'm sorry I just couldn't continue/finish the series.Actually I am not sorry.I respect you if you like this series but honestly, I freaking hated it.Shittiest shit on the manure pile.

    • Gaby says:

      I knew there had to be another book. As good as the Kiss was, I felt that it didnt really bring the story to a close and now I just really want to know if Wisty will end up with him. So, even if everyone else is complaining, I'm so happy!

    • Rebekah says:

      Okay, I have mixed feelings here. I love W&W and I would read about Whit and Wisty forever. However, it seems as though both James Patterson and the Publishers are writing these extra books (in both W&W and Maximum Ride) with little respect to the characters, setting and plot. Ghost writers have come into the picture, writing the books that have destroyed previous plot, and sticking James Patterson's name on the unnecessary book for pure profit. Never more was sadly disappointing and I f [...]

    • Emily says:

      I love the W&W and would gladly read any book that they can up with. But this book was a disappointment. The same fight, the same evil villain in disguise. Come on they are witch & wizard. Let them explore the dessert and fight some else who is not disguised as a evil villain from one of the other books. Or better yet have a new villain come into town. The possibilities are endless and yet I feel like I just reread the kiss. This was not the best book.

    • Andre Kalberer says:

      I would recommend this to a 5 the grader becaus it would be the right challenge this book is about a boy and girl who have special power they are witch and wizard. One day they were at there house sleeping next they were in prison for having special powers and they had to take down a man who wanted the girls powers if he got here powers then he could control every body's mind and would rule the world.

    • Alissa says:

      This book was pretty good, although not as good as the beginning of the series. I enjoyed how things kept coming back full circle and was surprised by some of the twists. I feel that this book brought closure to the series and left me with a feeling of a promising future. Overall I am very happy that I took the time to read this whole series. I enjoyed it immensily and would definitely recommend it to others interested in magical series.

      "We are magic because we are alive. We are magic because we feel joy. Because we make art and music ().""()in the end, it comes down to love.Love.I hope you can feel it, too." <3 LOVE IT !

    • Sophie says:

      Okay, it was good. It was better than the first three, and it was quite smart with how it weaved in the same existing (or once-existing) enemy. At the end, it was strangely like Harry Potter (I say begrudgingly), with their use of the power of love, and the original bad guy coming back to life in strange ways. Out of the whole series, I do think that The Kiss was the best, mostly because I'm a reluctant romance fan and because it was refreshing to have a good book after the first three. I think [...]

    • Maeve says:

      2.5/5Ok so I haven't even started this book yet but the blurb is killing me. This series is really getting on my nerves. James Patterson should've ended this series on the third book! It would've made sense! At least if you're going to make it a run on series make the problems linked! Foreshadow! Attempt at SOMETHING!Although I thought the fourth book was the best book so far, I think that it would've been better had the Wizard King been introduced earlier in the series. The plot in the fourth o [...]

      The Lost - Review   From the book cover The Wizard is Lost.The Witch is Angry.The Enemy is Relentless.They will never see the end coming I must say that when I started this book I was a little over what felt like the same plot: Evil Adult tries to control the city & control magic, Evil outsider wizard threatens the city, the Witch & Wizard save the day. But, I ended up really enjoying this book.  Darrius is the evil wizard and he is a great character. Some of the chapters are told [...]

    • Raven Lucero says:

      After the disaster that was The Kiss, The Lost brings the Witch and Wizard series the redemption it needs.While not the most well-written novel of all time, The Lost still carries with it the driving force all James Patterson novels have, even with a ghostwriter along for the ride.All in all, I enjoyed it enough that I'm definitely glad Patterson tried for a fifth one, and I might even consider picking up the final final final (final?) book, Forever, in the Maximum Ride series, which is set to c [...]

    • Alana says:

      I managed to listen to about 1 1/2 discs of this audio book before throwing in the towel. This is the exact same story as the previous 2 books. At the end of those books everyone was so happy that Wit and Wisty used magic to save the city, but now at the beginning of the next book, everyone is full of hate and bigotry against them. Same plot, same villain, same end game. I just could not listen to another minute of it. On top of that, they changed male voices last book and the new male voice is [...]

    • Sarah says:

      Wisty and her brother Whit have faced may evil. And now they have found themselves with yet another evil person. And all of the people are now saying that they are dangerous. Can Wisty and Whit defeat evil again or will they fail.I loved the last book because it had lots of interesting parts. The beginning and the end i thought were the most interesting part of all and the book started out so deep and sad. It was super good and i would recommend this to people who want to read the series.

    • Dee Price says:

      Same story .different villain. Whit and Wisty unite once again to face another nefarious threat called "The Family", who happen to unite with enemies form Whit and Wisty's past. The book was a fast-paced, quick read but the ending was a bit cheesy and I felt like it was the same plot from books 1-4 all over again.

    • Pam Funke says:

      This was another great read by James Patterson. While many series books aren't as good as the first one, this series is an exception to the rule. Each book in this series has been just as good and exciting as the very first one. Write on James, write on. Great book!

    • Margaux Dezire says:

      Freakin excellent book!!! Out of all the books I've ever read ever, this is the very FIRST book I've read in just 3 days!!! Not kidding either! I just couldn't put it down! Excellent!! Keep up the great work!!

    • Giovanni Papini says:

      This book was amazing all the way from the beginning. You think you know Wisty and Whit but you really don't. Their ideas and personalities change throughout the book showing you why they did certain things and why they do things. This book is the best in this amazing. 10/10 all the way

      OMG JAMES PATTERSON WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it, why???? I actually liked him!!!

    • Devin says:

      I absolutely adored this novel!! I personally just thought the other 4 books in the series were alright, but I truly and firmly believe that this installment in the Witch and Wizard series was brought to new heights!I thought that this novel was funnier, more heart-wrenching and more action packed then the last ones- and one of my personal favourite books now!One of the best things about this installment though; you don't have to read the 4th book right before this one to understand what is happ [...]

      Darrius is leading a team of magical thugs who are terrorizing the city and give Bloom the excuse he needs to insist those who have magic submit and have it excised from them. In an effort to please his girlfriend, Janine (who doesn't have magic) Whit submits. But without magic he is just a hollow shell and eventually leaves Janine and goes to live in a drain pipe when his parents banish him for giving up his magic. Darrius terrorizes the city with his band of desert Horseman, but just when you [...]

      Witch & Wizard 05Dystopian Fantasy / YA♦ The end? Finally? ♦ I do really hope that this is the end, like I thought it was 2 books ago…♦ Despite that, I do enjoy these books, I just feel like the series drug on way too long.♦ It’s full of action, suspense and mystery and has romance as well.♦ Characters are pretty standard.♠ Not much to say, if you read the rest you know what to expect. -----*I’m so very, very behind reviewing. The stack, well two stacks, of books is threate [...]

    • Joshua Abonal says:

      The Lost from the witch and wizard series is a good sequel from the kiss. It is the best of all the W&W series in my opinion. Although it was the same story, just a different villain. Whit and Wisty unite once again to face another nefarious threat called "The Family", who happen to unite with enemies form Whit and Wisty's past. The book was a fast-paced, quick read but the ending was a bit cheesy and I felt like it was the same plot from books 1-4 all over again. This book gave the series r [...]

    • Cat says:

      This was a meh ending to a meh series. I feel like the topics discussed in this series were really strong and important but were executed very poorly. The plot was pretty entertaining but the characters were wishy-washy and the writing was pretty terrible. Spoilers Below:I was really annoyed by the unnecessary killing in this book. I felt like the authors kept on killing main characters for wow-factor. Celia, Sasha, Margo, Pearl, and Byron. It just got so repetitive and stupid. I also felt like [...]

    • Anjie says:

      I realized about half way through the book that I had accidentally skipped "The Kiss". I chose not to go back, as the characters still had not shown much growth and maturity, so I just wanted to be done. Maybe, it would answer some questions for me like why Wisteria never used her mind control on people after the first book, but I doubt it. I'm used to writers encouraging education, but neither lead character seemed to regret being bad students, even though adults around them kept referring to w [...]
