Book Description

Whit and Wisty Allgood, a witch and wizard with extraordinary abilities, have defeated the ruthless dictator who long overshadowed their world. But for the first time in their lives, the powerful brother and sister find themselves at odds as Wisty is drawn to a mysterious and magical stranger named Heath.

Wisty has never felt as free as she does with Heath, especially when the two of them share and test their magic together. But when a merciless Wizard King from the mountains suddenly threatens war, Wisty must make an excruciating choice. Will she unite with Whit to fight the mounting dangers that could return their world to a tyrant's domain? Or will she trust the beautiful boy who has captured her heart?

James Patterson's epic dystopian saga continues as the witch and wizard who have inspired countless imaginations must rally together before the world they fought to save collapses.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "ANOTHER COMPELLING ADVENTURE IN THIS EPIC SERIES!" February 1, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    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!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless (maybe more for middle schoolers) November 9, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars New villain New excitement February 4, 2015
    -The First Truth-
    Know The Self.
    Illusions Trick The Eyes,
    But Not The Inner Eye.

    -The Second Truth-
    Know The Family.
    Trust Is Not Truth;
    It Is But A Flickering Flame.

    -The Third Truth-
    Know Light From Dark.
    Magic Is Not Equal To Righteousness.
    A Wizard May Destroy Or Save.
    A City Hangs In The Balance.

    -from the first page

    The Fire was the final book in the original Witch & Wizard trilogy. It wrapped up things nicely. So, going into this book, Whit & Wisty and the entire city are all celebrating the end of the evil dictator The One. But, of course things can't stay happy or there wouldn't be a story. There is a new threat, the Wizard King on the mountain. And there is a new government. A council made up of 17 men & women and 17 kids including Wisty & Whit. The head of the council, General Bloom is also a problem. He wants to control things and takes his newfound power too far. The Wizard King has cut off the city's water supply and children have been vanishing from the city. Whit takes off on a peaceful mission to the mountain to negotiate with the Wizard King. And Wisty chooses to stay behind with a mysterious wizard named Heath.

    I enjoyed this book. It seemed totally separate from the original trilogy, with new locations and characters popping up that we never heard of before. But, it is another exciting adventure for Whit & Wisty. She is a difficult character to like because she is so hot-headed and always flying off the handle (not a good thing when you can't control your magic and you start fires). But I get her. She seems to fall really fast for this new wizard (Heath) without too much hesitation considering she doesn't really know him. But I guess that's young love in the wizard world.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings April 26, 2013
    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....

    5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the book...hoping for another! February 16, 2013
    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!
