The Kiss Review

368 pages

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?

Now I wasn't the biggest fan of the last novel in this series, but the addition of this story has not only completely rekindled my love for this series but also brought a fresh storyline as well. Whit and Wisty may have thought all their troubles were over with the defeat of the One, but it seems that their troubles have only begun. Whit is as stoic as ever, not too many changes from the guy he has always been. Wisty, however still has a lot of growing to do especially when it comes to the relationships with people around her. There are a few new character introductions and with these characters come new revelations and also betrayals. The adults in the community still seem to have a lot to learn especially when it comes to dealing with the aftermath of the One's rule. There is quite a bit of action and adventure as the twins try to handle their town as well as deal with a new threat on the horizon. I definitely recommend reading this if you like books with magic but make sure to read the other books in the Witch & Wizard series first.
