Witch & Wizard Series- James Patterson

Time to read: week and a half.

   Really, if I didn't have a job, I could have finished all three books in a couple of days. They are definitely a quick read. They are for teens so they are a pretty easy read. I didn't have the first book on my list so instead of just getting into the series in the middle, I decided to go ahead and start from the beginning. So I added another book to my count that was not on the list.

    Witch & Wizard
This was the first book and I have to say, the plot did keep me interested enough to want to read the last two books in the series. It's about a sister and brother that are being accused of being a witch and wizard (their parents hiding it from them) and taken into custody to be killed. It is about a government that wants to get rid of all those who have abilities or traits of being a witch and wizard. They end up being pretty powerful and get themselves out of the prison. It starts off the book with the two waiting in line to be executed and then takes you back to the beginning of the story. At the end of the book it takes you to the execution again and ... to be continued...

Witch & Wizard: The Gift
   The second book starts off with the execution of the sister and the brother trying to save her. She ends up being killed but not really. She was powerful enough to make them think she was dead. Throughout the book they become like renegades and try to save as many children they can from the prisons and making an army of their own. They start to find out more about their powers and how to use them.

Witch & Wizard: The Fire
This book is about their journey to fight "The One" government and find their parents. Of course you can probably guess how it ends.

These were good books for teens but they weren't great. There are definitely other books in the "teen" group that are better than these. I didn't hate them and didn't love them.. more like a middle ground.. haha.. Anyways, at least they weren't boring! That would have made them difficult to get through!
