Nita and Kit are enjoying some downtime, when they receive a call for help from a fellow wizard. But this isn't any ordinary wizard; this wizard is a whale. Check out the 411 on Deep Wizardry.

Author: Diane Duane

Deep Wizardry, the second book in Diane Duane's Young Wizard series is full of it! It's full of action, adventure, information, excitement, and extraordinary ideas.


Return of the Lone Power

It doesn't come as a big surprise that The Lone Power is at it again. And it's up to Nita and Kit to keep It down. Things are a little weirder (if that's possible) than they were in the first book. Our wizards aren't traveling to some wack, alternate universe through the Grand Central World Gate. This time their fight against the slow death, against The One who created entropy, goes down deep beneath the sea.


The Whale Wizard

Just as Nita and Kit are enjoying some well-deserved downtime, while vacationing at the beach with Neet's family, they receive a call for help from a fellow wizard. But this isn't any ordinary wizard; this wizard is a whale. The wizard's request is significant - both Kit and Nita are needed to perform the Song of Twelve, an ancient ritual enacted to imprison The Lone Power. So what's hard about singing a whale song? Dangers you can't even begin to imagine.


The Bottom Line

Duane's second book manages to weave more magic than the first. In Deep Wizardry, our heroes are stronger, having developed their unique talents as wizards. It's full of action and rich with information.


If the ocean and its inhabitants capture your imagination, then dive into Deep Wizardry and experience Diane Duane's masterful storytelling.

Then again, women couldn't own and manage land while married until 1718....and it wasn't national until around 1850. You should probably specify where, because the place where I live wasn't even colonized yet in 1718.  Providence of Pennsylvania. However most states didn't accept it until around 1840-50. Maryland had achieved statehood in 1788, but it took them until 1841 to legalize married women to own property, and even them they had no control over the property. This is the case for many states. Face it, early America treated women as property....she was right on that part. But that's all changed. I'm not denying it. I was merely suggesting that you should specify where. Of course, in all the dates you've listed so far, men were also to be bought and sold as property in the U.S. in the states that would become the Confederacy. I would say that their treatment as property was much harsher than that of women in many cases, but yes, of course both men and women have been treated as property by the law in the past, and still are in many places today.    American Slavery didn't discriminate between genders. And for women, it was the same for blacks and whites. Also, pinning slavery and the confederacy together? I thought you knew more about the topic. But that's another debate.

The fight for women's rights has gone on and those for feminist  rights seem to have won. Sure, there is no way to fully promote equal rights, but when it comes to women's place in society -at least in places such as the United States and European countries and in many other regions- it's been on a more leveled playing field with men.  So here? Here where I am? I'm satisfied. I don't believe that women's rights have been neglected. In some ways, they're held above those of men. But out there? Beyond the borders of my "humble" dwelling, there are some problems. Women are abused and seen as lesser. (I'm trying to put this in nicer terms. I don't think it's working... :/)  I think we need to work on fixing those, instead of complaining about how we're deprived as our rights. Because honestly? We have no idea how bad it is.  Sorry,  I went on a mini tangent.  I think your tangent was very good. You seem to have a pretty solid grasp of the situation, and you also are capable of expressing it well. Great post, great job. Agreed. Thanks guys (:
