James Patterson and Jill Dembowski, deliver another exciting story as this saga continues. Whit and Wisty have extraordinary capabilities, and finally defeat the cruel dictator, but other problems exist as more challenges must be met. All odds seem to be against a brother, and a sister as Heath captures Wisty's heart. The powerful Wizard King threatens war, magic is tested, and Wisty must make a complicated decision. A war is brewing, danger spreads like wild-fire, and a beautiful world once fought for could become a nightmare. Can Wisty trust Heath, and will their world be destroyed? The intriguing story grabs your attention in the very beginning, the mystical setting is picture-perfect, and the colorful characters come to life. Young adults will enjoy this installment as well as adults, and love this epic dystopian series as they crave for more. Will their world be saved? Magical, enjoyable, and entertaining. Highly recommended!

I am willing to step out on a limb and say I was just too old for this book. I liked some of his other teen books and thought I would like this one, but I didn't. I feel like it is written for more of the elementary or middle school readers.

The topic and conversations were beyond childish. I just wanted the book to end. Situations were too easily solved. The entire thing felt predictable. Not only that, but Wisty's relationship rubbed me the wrong way. I also felt the characters were extremely judgmental and whinny.

I am just glad I finished it, but I do think it should be targeted at the younger readers.

So I had no idea this series was continuing because the last book which came out, The Fire, seemed like the perfect ending. My feelings are mixed on this one though. Overall, I enjoyed reading the story and loved the different places described in this book; the Mountain, the Forest, and the mention of a desert. And of course the familiar characters Whit and Wisty are enjoyable. However, what I enjoyed was also part of what bothered me. None of the places were ever mentioned in the previous novels (that I can remember) and made it a bit hard to believe they just all of the sudden appeared. I think it may have been better to just start a whole new series with similar characters, because it was just a little hard to buy the whole completely new setting.

Thinking of the book as separate from the series though, makes the story much more enjoyable. Corruption and unequal rights resurface as another power hungry leader tries to gain control of the city while another threat from the Mountain appears at the same time. Children start disappearing again and it's up to Whit and Wisty to help save the city from destruction, but this time a super handsome boy comes in the way splitting Whit and Wisty apart. Wisty can't seem to get enough of her latest crush Heath, while Whit believes him to be the scum of the Earth, but whose side is Heath really on?

All in all if you enjoyed the characters of Whit and Wisty and don't mind stretching your imagination to completely change their storyline, then go ahead read The Kiss. It's not a bad read. But if you want to just remember the ending of their story the way it probably should have "ended", you may be disappointed by this one....

I just finished The Kiss and I really enjoyed the book. **Contains spoiler information** I didn't like the fact that there was such a small period of peace and happiness until trouble started again. After defeating The One, it would have been nice knowing that the characters had a longer period of happiness before going to war. Some of the plot I expected, but I was thoroughly surprised by some developments (Heath's identity comes to mind). While the romance factor added a freshness to the series, I found myself feeling as if Whit was slighted. Also, I would have found the cover much more interesting with the letter "K" rather than a picture of Wisty. The series went from having a gender-neutral appeal, to looking as if it is a series mainly for girls. Finally, the use of allusion to the Holocaust with the magicians being forced into ghettos was a great way to incorporate historical events into the story. Hoping for a 5th book!

I love this series, I really do. As always, I thought that the book was well written and the characters were good. However, I wasn't very pleased by the majority of the romance in the novel. No worries, I won't spoil it. I mean yeah its great Witsy got a love interest, but I didn't care for how it developed all together. On a different note, I was hoping that Wit would gain more powers and grow to be as strong as Witsy, but as always, I didn't get that. Overall, I would've liked to see more Wit development with his powers and a little less of the romance factor.

This series is one that's best for you to read from the beginning- it definitely makes things make sense. There are witches, wizards, tyrants, war, drama, love, and everything in between. I've been reading this series since the beginning, and each book gets better. The characters are easy to love, and the bad guys are so easy to hate. These books may be geared towards YA but they definitely have an adult undercurrent that makes you think. Thumbs up.
