Overview

Wizards at War: The Eighth Book in the Young Wizards Series by Diane Duane


Nita and Kit return from their wizardly holiday, looking forward to getting back to their everyday routine. But there's trouble brewing. A strange darkness of the mind and heart is about to befall the older wizards of the world, stealing away their power. Soon, the young wizards of Earth and many other planets find themselves forced to defend wizards and nonwizards alike against an invasion of a kind they've never imagined.
But mere defense won't be enough to combat the evil afoot. With their alien teammates, Nita, Kit, and Dairine must race to search worlds known and unknown for the secret weapon the Powers That Be have promised them--before the minions of the sinister Lone Power find it first. And then, for the first time in millenia, the wizards must go to war. . . .

I admit the character list can be a bit daunting at first glance but the seven books before it work to develop the characters so you get to know each one . By the 8th book you feel as though you know the characters and it is easy to tell who is who. I thought the book was amazing even though it raised as many questions as it answered. oh well that's just her style! =]

My favorite book ever! I've read it twice and I'm willing to read it again. Though, I wanted to cry for Dairine at the end. It's totally awesome and a definite two thumbs up from me.

The latest installment in the Wizards series was as good or better than the previous stories. I loved the way the author brought back characters from many previous novels. It was like a big reunion! The plot is exciting, with humor, romance, and sadness sprinkled throughout. My personal favorite characters were Dairine and Roshaun, who get to know each other better in this book (wink). Fans of the series, like me, will love this book.

I have been reading this series since the fourth grade- and i'm a sophmore now! I am impressed with Duane's ability to keep a series alive after all these books. She continues to offer quality books and i can't wait for the next one. One thing about this series is that its realy complicated if you don't read from the begining, but its definitly worth it. Alot of people think its a rip off of harry potter, but its the farthest thing from that. The biggest differance in the two series is that in Harry Potter magic is just something the characters can do, with practice. Just wave your wand and it happens. Duane's magic is much more mature. In this series all wizards have a responsibility to help preserve life, and all magic has a price. Duane's books give Rowling a run for her money. In this book i love Carmela. Ponch, however, is THE BEST. I won't give it away, but you get to learn about the dog's Choice. Also Ronan shows up and i think i'm in love with him! You get to catch up with alot of characters from previous books, and meet new ones, too!

This book is wonderful. My favorite part of the story is the way that the author brings back many of the characters from the other novels in the series. This book is just as good as the others in the series, and is a great read for anyone. I salute Ms. Duane!

I absolutely love it!! This book is the best yet. I cry a lot, especially when I read about Dairine and the mobiles, and I am pretty sure I want to be a wizard myself!! I love all the characters, but I would say that the best overall is Ronan. The part near the end, which I won't give away, involving Ronan and the Spear, is brilliant!! Two thumbs up! (Or five ifyou are an alien!)

I started reading this series in my sixth grafe year,couldnt find the sequel,and ditched it. Now that i have been reading them again, I realized what a mistake that was. Wizards at war was the best one of them all. It made me laugh,cry,and feel for the characters. We are lucky to have an author like duane in our midst
