Deep Wizardry (NEW)

Deep WizardryDie Is er life worth Millions Of Other Lives Maybe of other lives Maybe didn t *Understand The Promise That *the promise that made at the time but she still promised She was old enough to take the Oath of wizardry to take the Oath of the Song of Twelve she is old enough to face the conseuences And sometimes people die They do it all the time as Carl points out Dying is easy And it s not fair But that s what wizards are supposed to fight against the death that isn t fair the fear and pain and anger and loneliness that the Lone Power created and forced upon the worlds Taking is weapon and making it your own that s what the Silent Lord did and it bound Him for thousands of years Doesn t mean you can t be afraid If ever anyone asks you what exactly is the point of a site like Goodreads do please direct them to this review A few months ago I read the first in this series So You Want To Be A Wizard and although I liked it I Yce (Captured by Aliens had no great desire to read any in the seuence But when I posted this in my Goodreads review a friend begged me to carry on because this the second book in the series was one ofer all time favourite books So I took er advice and you know what I love it too It books So I took er advice and you know what I love it too It astonishing Promise Lords of Action how many wonderful stories I ve found through Goodreads not just friends recommendations but other reviews discussion groups or simply surfing around following links from book to book to author to book It s an invaluable resource for readersThis is a children s or perhaps properly a young adult book the second of a long series but it s also an excellent read for adults I am several decades above the intended demographic but I absolutely loved it The firstalf of the book is a fairly straightforward tale of two kids Nita and Kit learning to enjoy their newfound powers of wizardry while avoiding Nita s pesky younger sister and trying not to be caught out by Familiar Stranger A Year Of Loving Dangerously Silhouette Intimate Moments No 1082 her parents There s a sprinkling of politically correct ecology pollution is bad children plus some swimming with dolphins and whales and such like fluffBut then aboutalf way through the story transforms into something deeper darker and much interesting Suddenly it s about love and death and willing sacrifice and keeping your word no matter the cost Oh and a little about the innateness or not of male aggression Which was unexpected Even though you know of course that Nita and Kit will be fine since the series goes on and on and even I saw what Out of the Shadows had toappen to make things come out right it was still exciting and scary and very moving I cried a lot and that s embarrassing at my age and I was on a train too Not sure what teenage or younger readers would make of it but I thought it was terrific A good 4 stars After reading and absolutely loving the first book in the series So You Want to be a Wizard I just knew I Black Gotham had to read the second book Deep Wizardry In allonesty this book is nowhere near as good as the first First this book is not as creative and riveting as the first book I mean not even in the same ball park which was extremely disappointing While it is well written and very well researched there are many marine biology terms used throughout the novel the plot is just moves at a very slow pace There were several times where I almost put the book down altogether because of the extremely dull story line and Addiction horrendously slow slower than molasses pacing The two main characters Kit and Nita were immature and to beonest pretty stupid and impulsive These ualities really made me want to slap each of them on the side of the The Adventurer's Handbook Life Lessons from History's Great Explorers head and tell them to get their sht together Despite some of the factors mentioned above the story was not a complete waste as it didave some interesting concepts The Essential Oil Hormone Solution: Reset Your Hormones in 14 Days with the Power of Essential Oils here and there While it ended on a relatively good note I felt very unsatisfied with the ending almost like a perfect bow wrapped around a little too tightly Based on all this I ll probablyold off on the res of the series for now I m torn about reviewing the rest of this series as the simple truth is that I like the rest considerably less although the original is uite good as well and I Madisons War haven t finished them all They allave their moments and they re generally well told works of fantasy in a carefully drawn universe with consistent rules They just don t really grab me as much as I d like I dig the technobabble for magic deal but sometimes it gets to be a bit much And as is c Ah Ed He was the best part but also Carl and Tom and Peach I love that Nita and Kit are solid best friends and are a team Their magic is very collaborative and I enjoy this so much.

My favorite in the series I love Manual do guerreiro da luz how Nita discovers that an offhand promise turns out to be very serious andow the kids find it Creative Alcohol Inks harder andarder to work around their families There is a very dramatic storyline that left my in tears too Oops I am falling absolutely in love with these little books First off let me say that I Fallin For His Thug Passion 2 have trying a straddling techniue in reading these Iave been alternating between listening to the fantastically charming audiobook for commute to work and then switching to my paperbacks which I Carrot City hastily and excitedly purchased from Orca Books in Oly for a song on store credit for my 15 minute work breaks in order to continue the story I can safely say that Iave been impatiently shelving books during my shifts thinking about my next chance to read about my leetle wixxards and then shuffle the stories on to my friend Pietro so I will See What You Made Me Do have someone to giggle and sueal withWhat I love Parents in the book are treated with love and respect for their feelings It is lovelyow Nita and Kit both seem to actually care what their parents think about them and don t want This is one of my favorites of Diane Duane s Young Wizards series not in the least because it s full of whales But what I love most about it is that it s got the noble sacrifice for the good of all scenario going on in it With great white sharks How cool is that This review contains spoilers for So You Want to Be a WizardI remember in my younger years not liking this book as much as So You Want to Be a Wizard which I ll be referring to as SYWTBAW from now on because geez that s a long title My reasoning It was too weird I don t know why umans shapeshifting into whales was too weird but I didn don t know why umans shapeshifting into whales was too weird but I didn Weaving a Family Untangling Race and Adoption have a problem withumans teaming up with a celestial object and a sentient sports car to fight evil in a parallel universe Seems like a pretty arbitrary place to draw the lineWith my inexplicable aversion to shapeshifting behind me I was finally able to enjoy Deep Wizardry to its fullest during my most recent reread Whereas SYWTBAW is a blend of fantasy and science fiction this book is pretty straightforward fantasy It s also tonally different SYWTBAW ad a fast paced edge of your seat feel to it while Deep Wizardry feels *slower and ponderous It fits the underwater theme of the story in my opinionI m still ead *and ponderous It fits the underwater theme of the story in my opinionI m still Principles of Agricultural Engineering Volume-1 (Farm Power, farm Machinery, Farm Buildings, Post Harvest-Technology) headeels in love with Nita Callahan as a character In this book we get to see a introspective side of The Special Undercover Delivery (The Little Ad (The Little Ad(option) Agency Book 1) her which is great forer character development Because the entire book is written from The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure--Without Losing Your Soul her perspective the insight into Kit is limited and focused specifically onis relationship with Nita Randomized Algorithms Cambridge International Series on Parallel Computation how she seesim and what she thinks of Northanger Abbey him And Diane Duane s cast of side characters is just as vibrant as it was in book oneSomething that really impressed on me this reread wasow Duane doesn t shy away from darkness and depth Obviously everything is still age appropriate for a middle grade novel but there s an added layer underneath it all that I appreciate Maybe that s another reason this wasn t my favorite when I was younger there are a lot of complicated concepts explored in the text As I mentioned in my review of SYWTBAW Duane adds a philosophical twist to Longman Academic Writing Series 5 her stories which in the first book was occasionally a bit too much but I thought was executed much betterereI m glad I went back and reread this one as an adult I enjoyed it much this time around Up next book three which I remember loving the first two times I read it Let s The Japanese Pottery Handbook: Revised Edition hope thatasn t changed While I regretted last time around that I The Columbia Guide to East African Literature in English Since 1945 (The Columbia Guides to Literature Since 1945) had not encountered Diane Duane s Young Wizards books when I was a young un this time around I m pretty glad I didn t because if I d come across Deep Wizardry when I was the age of its two young protagonists I wouldave reuired extensive therapy afterward Look I m not going to get into this much but man I could Reckoning The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment have used a trigger warning becauseGIANT SUID ATTACKS YOU GUYSI maving trouble breathing after just The Conditions of Agricultural Growth The Economics of Agrarian Change under Population Pressure having typed those wordsFortunately I m a grown up now andave evolved and developed coping techniues for dealing with scenes like theGIANT SUID ATTACKS YOU GUYSand am thus somewhat capable of admiring that scene for the majestic and badass bit of action writing that it is Somewhat I m still very glad I put this book down to sleep last night well before the advent of theGIANT SUID ATTACKS YOU GUYSor I wouldn t عمارة يعقوبيان have slept at all and would probablyave to be Jane Addams hauled off to a mental ward like one of HP Lovecraft s less strongly constituted wuseroesAll that aside. Coming to the aid of a wounded whale Kit and Nita are plunged into deep wizardry The whale is a wizard and she enlists Kit and Nita. Deep Wizardry is a remarkably wise Thoughtful And Lovely Book We and lovely book We up not long after Nita and Kit saved the world from the Lone Power in So You Want to be a Wizard with Nita s family and Kit along for good measure vacationing on the beach and Nita and Kit exploring the delights of ocean swimming along with their budding powers and responsibilities Soon it s those responsibilities as I observed last time around Duane s version of magic Harry Potter for Nerds has aeavy ethicalecological bent and literally preserves the world that come crashing to the fore like a tidal
