Not Another Harry Potter Type Book Jan 15, 2010
This is the first book in a series to come about Wisty and Whit Allgood discovering that they are a witch and a wizard, the prophecies surrounding them, and the dangerous challenges they must face together. When the brother and sister are arrested in the middle of the night, in their home, you feel like you’ve come in on the middle of a story, and not from the start. I kinda felt like I may be missing something. Both Wisty and Whit accept what they are and what they can do a lot easier than what I would have expected. Whit is a gorgeous and buff teen who sees his dead girlfriend’s ghost. Wisty reminds me of ‘Firestarter’ with her pyrokinesis. Naturally, The One Who Is The One, is the most powerful wizard who is changing the world and the worlds surrounding to his rule. He is obviously afraid of the powerful Allgood siblings. The story is basic, fast paced, and had me so curiously interested that it keeps me reading until the end just to find out how it would end. It is no where near as good as the Harry Potter series, but I believe this is meant to be something of its own. It would probably make a great made for TV movie! And, it is not the book I expected when I read about it and ordered it. However, I am looking forward to the other books, to find out how these prophecies play out for the siblings and The One Who Is The One.
