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!

    Prologue 0-2: Hello, Sister Despair   The corridor seemed to wind on and on as I walked; I'd passed so many classrooms that the tedious environment I found myself in felt circular. I'd seen no-one, heard no-one... it felt lonely. I felt lonely. Though I desperately wanted to call out to see if someone would answer me, I felt that no answer would come. Maybe... all of this was completely hopeless. However, that feeling of solitude was broken by the most grating, irritating, aggravatingly-sickly voice I'd ever heard. "Hello! Are you new, too?"   Well, it was better than nobody. As I turned to the source of the voice, a smallish girl with pale pink curls greeted me with a smile, giggling happily. Somehow... I felt I recognised her, in some way. She had a friendly air about her, so maybe I could trust her. "Yay!" she began, striking a cute pose, "Ruka found someone else, nya!" Ugh. She reminded me of those god-annoying anime characters who were a bubbly mess of energy. I couldn't just ignore her, despite how badly she grinded my gears. A patient smile forming on my face, I couldn't help but stammer out of nerves.   "S-so, who are you?" I asked flatly, "I'm Misaki Yami, if you really wanna know." Judging by her speech pattern, this girl was probably called 'Ruka', but it was  best to make sure; I didn't want to call her a name that she wasn't called. "Ahh! So cute, nya!" she continued cheerily, "I'm gonna call you Aki! A cute name for a cute girl, nya!" "You really don't have t-" I was promptly cut off by the girl again. She was really starting to irritate me now, but I couldn't blow a fuse because of her. "I'm sorry! I need to introduce myself, too!" the girl swiftly struck a cute pose. "I'm Ruka Arisugawa, but I might be better-known as Faris, nya."   RUKA ARISUGAWA SECONDARY INTERNET IDOL   Ah. So that's how I knew her... Ruka Arisugawa - better known as Faris Nekomimi - is pretty much inescapable online. Youtube videos, blogs, social media in general are overrun by the talented internet idol. I'm not really into that kinda thing, but from my love of anime, I guess they assumed I liked idols too. I don't. Well, I couldn't just be rude, even if she did seem to embody that irritating bubbly attitude I'd never grown to like. So, after a little more conversation (though it wasn't particularly interesting), Ruka and I began to make our way to the gymnasium; according to my acquaintance, she'd seen some others walking around and decided to take their path.    Soon enough, after what seemed like hours of walking in circles, we'd reached the door to the gymnasium- and as Ruka had said, there were others making their way inside. I cautiously pushed open the grey door, and inside the rather generic-looking gymnasium, stood around fourteen other people. They all looked pretty unique, but what was I expecting? These were former Ultimates... they definitely had that air about them. Ruka was quick to dash forward and start talking to people, and I began to settle on that idea, too. The people in the room had settled into two groups; I concluded on talking to the people in the first of those groups.   Well... you can't just say nothing, I told myself sharply, as I took my steps towards the first person in the group. Go ahead and introduce yourself to them.
