As young wizards, Nita and her friend, Kit, share magic spells and spectacular adventures. Twice, they have successfully thwarted a dark power called the Lone One. Each victory has protected the universe against its paralyzing force, for a while. But now Darine, Nita's 10-year-old sister, has found her wizard's manual. With the help of a laptop computer, Darine has not only absorbed the book's wisdom, she has become a powerful wizard herself. Setting off on a jaunt to distant galaxies, Darine doesn't realize she is headed toward a confrontation with the Lone One. Can Nita and Kit find her in time to help?

Children love Diane Duane's works for their fast-paced combination of sorcery and suspense. She adds wonderful technological twists to this third book in her Young Wizard series, and narrator Christina Moore's voice adds just the right touch of magic.

    " Nita's little sister Dairine enters the world - and universe- of wizardry with a huge bang in High Wizardry. Dairine's Ordeal and experiences with wizardry are a fun way to see how magic evolves with the world culture. It also provides a humorous twist for the usual sibling relationship! "

    " I love Dairine... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Odette | 2/11/2014

    " After book number one, the series starts to take a turn for the better. (Which isn't to say that the first book is bad.) This is my favorite in the whole series. Dairine comes into her own as a character, and beyond that the struggle between good and evil is played out on an epic scale. There are certain religious sub-tones, but I don't have a problem with them. In fact, I rather like that aspect. "

    " All the (then) popular references in this book become annoying quickly. I myself am a big Star Wars fan and can relate to wanting to face the evil's of the universe with a lightsaber in hand, but still this aspect of the book is a bit grating. The series is obviously written for children. Written to guide them, through puberty, among other things. Written to make them interested in science. And otherwise written in a style downplayed to their supposed ability. The story itself is not as exciting as the others. their is a lot of lead up, with most of the excitement happening in the last few pages. Also our heroes from the past two books barely have a part at all, and though we were all ready to learn about Darine's rise, we were more ready for a joint venture a gradual introduction, not this sudden leap. "

    " This book is life-changing. That's all I have to say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Forrest Sargent | 1/27/2014

    " I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING. I LIKED THE MOBILES. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Aragona | 1/20/2014

    " I have to say that the introduction of Nita's sister into the Wizardy world was partially expected, but still highly entertaining. Talk about how much someone can be capable of doing if they don't know they shouldn't be able to do it! [return][return]I must admit that it was a little strange to be almost at the end of the book and not remember that Dairine is the youngest wizard in the series. She certainly acted/ spoke like a much more mature person but perhaps that had to do with her above-average intellect. At any rate, the situations she got herself into were definitely unique as was her way of solving her problems.[return][return]I also began to see some small similarities between this series and the Pendragon books (although these were obviously written much earlier): The whole idea of children battling a "Lone Power" whose only desire is to corrupt people/ civilizations.[return][return]An enjoyable and entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sue | 1/18/2014

    " I am not smart enough to understand this series - plus the religious references are freaking me out a little, but you know we'll read the whole thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 S | 1/14/2014

    " A little more dated in tone and explicitly Christian than I prefer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/30/2013

    " Not as good as the first two, but still very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared | 12/16/2013

    " Awesome plot, storyline, everything. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/7/2013

    " Seriously good, I truely enjoyed this story. The idea of going to other planets and combining this with magic. Absolutley fabulous! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 11/30/2013

    " Magic by computer. Truly a weird concept. Young adult fiction, but not too bad for all that. =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 10/14/2013

    " Magic AND astronomy? Yes please! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 6/26/2013

    " I didn't like this book as much as the previous two, partly because I don't generally like sci-fi as much as fantasy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Chan | 1/4/2013

    " Dairine is going solo in this one. I thought she wouldn't have much of a role in the series, but I was wrong... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina Durst | 12/22/2012

    " Thought this was very cleverly done and I found myself liking Nita's snappy little sister evening than Nita herself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 11/5/2012

    " This is sort of like the first but I think it was more exciting than the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elisabeth P. | 10/27/2012

    " Another fun book in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 10/16/2012

    " When I read the first book in this series, it reminded me a bit of C.S. Lewis' Space Trilogy. This third book is very reminiscent of Perelandra. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mr. Wiegel | 5/20/2012

    " Not near as good as the first two in the series. I won't be continuing to read the Young Wizards series after reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 elissa | 3/19/2012

    " The 3rd in the excellent Young Wizards series. This one focuses on the younger sister of the main character in the first two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginnie | 3/5/2012

    " It was good but not my type of story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xaris | 6/17/2011

    " SOOO COOL! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 6/11/2011

    " My favorite so far. The action was a lot faster paced and things weren't as worthy. Amazing improvement from the second book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 5/19/2011

    " Nita's little sister Dairine enters the world - and universe- of wizardry with a huge bang in High Wizardry. Dairine's Ordeal and experiences with wizardry are a fun way to see how magic evolves with the world culture. It also provides a humorous twist for the usual sibling relationship! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Missy | 1/22/2011

    " I didn't like it at first, but by the end I was intruiged by some of the ideas, and surprised by the way it ended. And so I guess I will continue with the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theo | 1/15/2011

    " I liked it. it was alittle confusing, but it was good. I don't like that they stray off of nita and kit though... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mecque | 12/12/2010

    " This might be my favorite book in the series so far. The prose... it just sings. All of the characters, good and bad, are likeable and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 11/28/2010

    " I love this book, but I see now how Duane made some mistakes in setting herself up for future books (like stating the number of Earth seniors, and assuming only humans and whales had them). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginnie | 11/10/2010

    " It was good but not my type of story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremiah | 10/18/2010

    " You know, all I can really say is that this is one of the best books I have ever read, 127% amazing. Not much else can be said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 8/19/2010

    " I love these clever books!! Great for kids age 10 and older, good vs. evil, accomplishing great things requires great sacrifice, standing up to evil is never wrong - even when it's really scary, science and knowing things is good instead of geeky. "
