Summary from Goodreads;
Whit and Wisty Allgood have sacrificed everything to lead the resistance against the merciless totalitarian regime that governs their world. Its supreme leader, The One Who Is The One, has banned everything they hold dear: books, music, art, and imagination. But the growing strength of the siblings' magic hasn't been enough to stop the One's evil rampage, and now he's executed the only family they had left.
Wisty knows that the time has finally come for her to face The One. But her fight and her fire only channel more power to this already invincible being. How can she and Whit possibly prepare for their imminent showdown with the ruthless villain that devastated their world-before he can truly become all-powerful?
In this stunning climax of the epic Witch & Wizard series, the stakes have never been higher-and the consequences will change everything.
4 stars, really enjoyed it.
This is the last installment of the Witch & Wizard series, Witch and Wizard being the first one and The Gift the second. This was a quick read. James Patterson has a way of writing that makes it seem easier and faster to read, and I love that about his books.
In The Fire, Whit continued with the hope that Celia and him would be together, which caused a tad of problems at certain times. I wished that the ending could have been more of a team ending not just have the spotlight on Wisty. I mean, I really enjoyed it and I was shocked-- sort of -- but I wished both of them would have joined together and fought against The One.
One of the characters, Pearce reminded me of Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter. ( had to point it out, I love Harry Potter ^.^ )
"With blond hair combed severely back from his forehead, pale blue, almost clear eyes, and prominent cheekbones, he seems made of glass--sharp and colorless. Beautiful but hard. Cold." - The Fire, James Patterson.
The Fire is an action filled novel that ends the trilogy, Witch & Wizard with a boom! Every element comes to play as Whit and Wisty come face to face against The One Who Is The One in this true page-turning novel.
