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 execWhit 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 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 climax of the epic Witch Wizard series, the stakes have never been higher and the consequences will change everything.. The best Kindle The Fire Well, I stuck it out. What a waste of time. Patterson changed writing partners for each of the 3 books and I don't think it helped. 3 full books of the Allgood siblings being afraid, never growing, never learning. Three quarters of the way through this 3rd volume and Wisty is still petrified of "the One" and doesn't have a clue how to fight him and Whit is still instantly distracted by his dead girldfriend, Celia, quicker than a retreiver by a SQUIRREL! Whit is the most fickle scatter-brained person in the world and the last person I would ever want to depend on to save anybody. He starts out on a mission and immediately deviates from the plan to go off on his own after his beloved Celia so many times I wished "the One" would just kill him. Supposedly Wisty's gift of FIRE (as the title suggests) is the main thing that "the One" wants and is her special ability that can defeat him (3 books have led us to this point) but alas,.... no... it's a new special ability to connect electrically to nerve synapses that seems to be her TRUE power.....HUH? Where the hell did THAT come from? She is the one person with the power who can defeat "the One"... but apparently she can't do it until Whit can concentrate for like two seconds on something other than his dead girlfriend.....wow, whatever.Then they finally defeat the badguy in the bowels of hell with their almost dead parents watching from the sidelines (who still aren't helping in any way) and then are suddenly in a van, driving home with their parents??????? DRIVING HOME? Wasn't their home and their entire community DESTROYED in the last book? Whit had only recognized where they were because of the oak tree that used to be in their backyard that was the only thing still standing. And yet, here they are, with Mom and Dad pulling into their driveway talking about the garage door and the bathroom that needs paint. Don't even get me started on Byron "the weasel" Swain who flip-flopped back and forth between bad-guy fink and good buddy more than a politician in an election year. If there are any more books coming in this series.... they won't be making onto any of my bookshelves.
