You are holding an urgent and vital narrative that reveals the forbidden truth about these perilous times…”

“This is the atonishing testimonial of Wisty and Whit Allgood, a sister and brother who were torn from their family in the middle of the night, slammed into prison, and accused of being a witch and wizard. They are not alone in their terrifying predicament. Thousands of young people have been kidnapped. Some of have been accused; many others remain missing. Their fate is unknown, and the worst is feared-for the ruling regime will stop at nothing to suppress life and liberty, music and books, art and magic…and the pursuit of being a normal teenager. Most copies of this story have already been seized, shredded, or burned. Read this rare, surviving edition and pass it along with care-before it’s too late.”

This book’s description sure speaks for the novel itself. I really enjoyed this one, its short, fast paced chapters get straight to the point and it is suspense filled throughout. This novel was mixture between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. I could also recognize the allusions made in the novel to current pop culture. You root for the kids, in this world over-controlled politics that shows a glimmer of reality beyond the craziness of witches and wizards.

This book is the first I have read of James Patterson, so I will definitely be checking out some of his other works, like Maximum Ride maybe?
