Nita's best friend and wizard partner Kit has gone his own way, leaving Nita to practice magic on her own. In the midst of this sad goodbye, Nita's mother is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, seemingly untreatable by science or sorcery. Nita's greatest foe, the evil Lone Power, may be her only hope. Her mother's life hanging in the balance, Nita must now trust an arch-nemesis she's spent a lifetime fighting.

The Wizard's Dilemma is the fifth title in Diane Duane's New York Times best-selling Wizardry series. Christina Moore vividly conveys Nita's teenage angst, fear, and courage in these wonderful tales of magic and mischief that have delighted readers for almost 20 years.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 2/19/2014

    " I had trouble relating to this book possibly because I haven't experienced deep grief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/17/2014

    " I enjoyed it but the fundamental underlying tension is a rift in Nita's & Kit's relationship, with no real good basis and a bunch of people who are aware of it and don't make an issue of kicking them into some sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 elissa | 2/13/2014

    " Every one of the books in this series has been one that I can sink myself down in to, and one that makes me think hard about the issues that it presents. Bliss! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swankivy | 2/8/2014

    " The Wizard's Dilemma covers a battle with cancer, and what Nita and her partner can do to beat it without paying too high a price. The tale of sacrifice and trial and determination was absolutely incredible! And the ending . . . poignant, and just completely heartbreaking while still making it clear why it happened this way. I love when the quest isn't clear-cut and when a book can sometimes show where losing is winning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 2/7/2014

    " This is a tough one to get through, as Nita and her family face the fact that Nita's mother has cancer. The tragic choices that Nita has in front of her really bring issues related to science, magic, and free will to the forefront. A good, although sad, read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 2/2/2014

    " Diane Duane writes entertaining fantasy and this series tackles life issues - such as sacrificial love - in the midst of the action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry | 1/27/2014

    " Fun story and believable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/17/2014

    " Not as lighthearted as the rest of the series, but still well written. Not even wizardry can fix everything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 1/1/2014

    " My favorite so far. It was much better than the last one at least. It was so sad thought I have a feeling that the next one is going to be worse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 12/9/2013

    " This is definitely the hardest one to read. It deals with some really intense issues, but still, really good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Missy | 12/4/2013

    " I was a little worried about how the author would deal with the issue of wizardry and serious illness, but I actually found it very interesting. I didn't love the way it turned out, but at least I understood why it worked out the way it did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mia | 11/28/2013

    " I LOVED THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harpal | 10/11/2013

    " These books are so heavy. But also hilarious. God, they're so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael D. | 4/20/2013

    " It had a better ending then i expected "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 4/2/2013

    " I read the early books in this series a long, long time ago. I had no idea there were so many more that had been written. This one is definitely better than the couple before it, if not quite as great as the original first two. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katherlin | 3/12/2013

    " incredibly sad "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christopher | 3/3/2013

    " Reading because it's there, really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Topher | 9/15/2012

    " An amusing continuation in the series, though it deals with mortality in a way that doesn't pull many punches. I'm enjoying the series so far, particularly the tongue-in-cheek updating of certain characters (ie spot) to reflect the changing decades.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 9/10/2012

    " I cried throughtout this whole story, feeling Nina's pain and her dilemma with keeping the wizard's code. This was a bit of tough read because it was so sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 11/19/2011

    " I love the others, but this one is FANTASTIC. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess | 9/26/2011

    " This is an incredible battle, a heart-wrenching family tale, and a great piece of phliosophy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 9/19/2011

    " This one isn't as sad as the sixth, but it's still pretty sad. Make sure you read the first four, otherwise it won't make sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 9/10/2011

    " An addicting series you just cannot put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca R.G. | 9/9/2011

    " This is more shallow than I remember it being. However, the practice worlds are great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 9/2/2011

    " This series is so good! There are so many ethical choices brought up, it's hard to believe these are written for kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Chan | 7/23/2011

    " I found this book a LONG time after the fourth book, and I wasn't disappoitned with the kernels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarebear | 6/20/2011

    " WAY too much philosophy mixed with too much hard science, for the target YA audience. It was a bit confusing to ME, and especially so for my daughter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/25/2011

    " To be honest, this one hit a little too close to home for me. "

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

    " This is a tough one to get through, as Nita and her family face the fact that Nita's mother has cancer. The tragic choices that Nita has in front of her really bring issues related to science, magic, and free will to the forefront. A good, although sad, read. "

    " One of my favorites in the series after a relatively slow start. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teddy | 1/29/2011

    " One of the better ones in the series so far. "

    " this one was sooo amazing! Nita does anything she can to save her dieing mother, but is it enough? i realled loved this one, true character, true hope, and true magic :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doris | 9/14/2009

    " This book seems to drop into my hands when I need it most. It deals with painful subjects in a way that is not maudlin, and allows the reader to feel the pain the characters go through, without minimizing loss or hurt.

    Powerful powerful story. "

    " It had a better ending then i expected "
