Nita and Kit are back. And so is Nita's sister Dairine. Oh yeah, two things -Dairine, being as young as she is, is a wizard with almost limitless power, and her wizard's manual is an Apple computer.

Author: Diane Duane

High Wizardry, is the third book in Diane Duane's extraordinary Young Wizard series. Like the previous books in the series, this promises adventure, excitement and some thought-provoking ideas. Hey, if you're a fantasy and science fiction fan - then this is a wizardry for you!


Our favorite wizards, (I'm telling you, they're right up there with Harry and his pals!) Kit and Nita, are up against the The Lone Power (who makes Voldemort seem like a pussycat) yet again. And that's not all. That's right, we saw her coming at the end of Deep Wizardry and now she's here. Nita's little sister, 10 year-old Dairine has officially received her wizard's manual. Oh yeah, two things - Dairine, being as young as she is, is a wizard with almost limitless power, and her wizard's manual is an Apple computer (I can see the feature film product placement already.)


Being a novice wizard is not without its risk. Dairine nearly folds the known universe inside out with her first attempt at a space-time slide. It is the first of a series of spells that takes us jump after jump across the galaxy. That's right fantasy fans, this is a wizardry of the techno-space variety.


Diane Duane creates as much magic as her wizards, in each addition of her Young Wizards Series.

    What do the Witch & Wizard Cards Do?

    • Each witch or wizard tells a different joke.
    • They can all get up and battle like chess pieces!
    • The picture on each card moves like it's a real person.
    • Nothing, they're just pictures on cardboard.

Something like ~0.5% of people convicted are convicted wrongly A loaded question is not how you should decide ethical choices

No. I wouldn't. Do you even know what it feels like to have a family member murdered? For the first few weeks, oh yes. You want them to die in the worst way possible. But, once you become lucid, you understand what you're actually advocating. If you haven't experienced something yourself, don't say that it is the way that you think it is.
