Book #13

I am back to make my excuses for why I took so long. I know that at this point it’s been nearly half a year, and I’m only halfway through, but this time I actually have a valid excuse.

The book was terrible.

The pacing was rushed. The writing was poor. The book began with an execution, then backtracked to explain how the witch and wizard, Wisty and Whit, were accused and discovered their magical abilities (including, but not limited to, using spells such as “Shazam” and “Bibbidi Bobbiddi Boo”. I kid you not.) They basically go in and out of jail and then, at the last second, the writers remember that they are supposed to do an execution and flash back to that. Wisty then says, “How did we get here? Well, don’t worry about that. We’ll be fine.” In case you didn’t get it, that means – there is no explanation. They just show up on an execution stand. Why? Who knows. I had to force myself to read it. 104 chapters of torment. I will NOT be reading the rest of the series.

So after that nightmare…
