A Wizard Abroad Book Review

A Wizard Abroad Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Check out the Kidzworld book review of Elaine Marie Alphin's Simon Says. It's the story about a young artist trying to find the courage to be who he is, not who everyone else wants him to be. - Page 1

Author: Diane Duane

So where are we? Oh yeah, the forth book in Diane Duane's Wizard series entitled A Wizard Abroad In this edition we hook up with Nita and Kit at the beginning of their summer vacation. Nita's parents are concerned about the amount of time Kit and Nita are spending together engrossed in acts of wizardry (if that's what their really up to.)


Travels in Ireland

Believing it is in her best interest, Nita's rents send her to stay with family in Ireland, for a rest from magic and a break from Kit. Nita is very nearly crushed at the prospect of being so far from her wizardry partner for so long. That is until she discovers more and greater magic than she has ever witnessed before. Add to that a kindred spirit in her Aunt (her talent had to come from someone in the family!) and the myths and lore of Ireland. Of course Kit's only a wizardry away.


The Bottom Line

Once again Duane creates an exciting adventure, weaving the legends and monsters of Old World Mythology with Nita and Kit's modern-day wizardry. The battle between good and evil has never been vivid, so historical and fictional at the sametime.


So do you like monsters? Mythological creatures? Legends from ancient times? Then pick up A Wizard Abroad. It's Duane's best work!

    Females do mature faster, i don't think intelligence should be based on gender though. I think we all are equal, but we are all unique still, females shouldn't be treated different from males all the time. Females aren't physically built the same as males so we just cant do everything like them. Females just have to try harder at most things males do. But we are equal, because nothing should be based on the gender of anybody. We are all human, we all live and die, we all make mistakes. Gender and race dont make us who we are its our actions so yeah.

    in all honesty, women's "value & worth" fluctuates as to which part of the globe you are on. let's not all pretend its the same everywhere. so no we are not equal.
