Fourteen-year-old Nita is in Ireland, spending the summer with her aunt. As a young wizard, Nita is fascinated by the forces at work in this ancient land. Sometimes, the world seems to be shifting sideways into another dimension. Layers of history, rich with battles between superhuman tribes, lurk beneath the surface of every moment. When Nita discovers that her aunt is a wizard, too, Nita realizes that this summer will not be a vacation. Ireland truly is in danger: her past is breaking into the present. And if this disintegration of time continues, the rest of the physical world will crumble, too. Nita must help her aunt and the other wizards restore order again.

Like the other books in Diane Duane's popular series, A Wizard Abroad is filled with all the imaginative details of a magical world. Its frisky spells, talkative cats, and moonlight visions are enhanced by Christina Moore's spirited narration.

    " There was only one thing that bugged me about this book: Nita's parents want her to get some distance from Kit and learn how to interact with people other than him, which is really a good thing to learn! But he just pops in and takes over midway through the book, and Nita doesn't get a chance to show herself that she can take care of herself without him. That was disappointing, and now that the next book is how their partnership is not working as well as it once did, and Nita not knowing how to turn to someone else, well, I wish she'd had a lesson in getting to rely on more people before then. "

    " Slightly less good than its predecessors (in my opinion), A Wizard Abroad is a great book in itself and very nice when read as part of a series. Diane Duane creates an intrusive/portal/quest fantasy that presents both a believable world and a believable magical system (something I appreciate). Overall, the focus of the books has skewed sideways from traditional themes, partially owing to the fact that most good source material for intrusive and magical fantasies has already been exploited by predecessors in the genre. Still, the books remain vivid, exciting, and for the most part thematic and/or symbolic in nature. My only complaint would be that in the great detail in which Duane explains the world to the readers, she tends to bog down her narrative. Nevertheless, I still really enjoyed it. "

    " complex tale of battling dark within confusing Irish mythos "

    " Nita heads to Ireland (against her will) and finds herself embroiled in wizardry unlike anything she's gone up against. Interlinking Irish Legends into this world of wizardry makes for fascinating reading while we also start to watch the changes teenage life brings to Nita.[return][return]Discovery follows surprise discovery as Nita also learns a bit about her ancestry and its link to the world of wizards! A very entertaining read. "
