James Patterson brings the fifth and final book in the best-selling Witch & Wizard saga to a head by exposing the nature of power - and what it means for the heroes that have it.
Whit and Wisty Allgood have fought and defeated their world's greatest threats: the evil dictator, The One Who Is The One, as well as his wicked father and son. But just as the heroic witch and wizard start to settle into their new roles in governance, a deadly crime wave grips their city, with all signs pointing to a magical mastermind every bit as powerful and heartless as The One. Now the siblings find themselves persecuted as the city turns against all those who possess magic. They're questioning everything, including each other and their abilities.
Can they confront the citizens' growing hostility and their own doubts in time to face the new enemy barreling towards their gates?

I can't say too much about my favourite moment, because the three finalists are all spoilers.
In fact most things I want to write qualify as spoilers.
So I will settle for there being some excellent re-appearances from people thought gone, moving deaths and spectacular drama, as we have come to expect from this series.
I hit a lull around book three when I couldn't be bothered to carry on, but I am pleased I made it to the end of this marathon.
As a series I would compare it to Harry Potter, not just because of the magic, but because it's really caught me up in the story. Okay it's for a slightly older audience, it's certainly not a series for pre-teens, but where I was really disappointed with the end of Harry Potter I wasn't with this. The epilogue memorial service is truly moving, I am still listening to it as I type this.
I strongly recommend it as a series, and stick with it, you will be pleased you did.
