Wizard’s Holiday by Diane Duane

It’s probably a safe assumption that people who read my reviews are familiar with the website TV Tropes. (For those who are not, beware: this website will quite literally eat hours of your time, along with expanding your to-be-read and to-be-watched lists.) There is a certain trope which the site refers to as a Busman’s […]

The second book in Diane Duane’s Young Wizards series, Deep Wizardry, is just as good as the first, I’m happy to say. Nita and Kit, the young wizards who thwarted the Lone Power, reappear just as they were in the first book: young, brash, and in ever so slightly over their heads. They are also […]

I think it’s a safe bet that most people who visit this site have wanted to be a wizard at some point (and a safe bet that some of us still do). Unfortunately, as far as I know, none of those wishes have come true, which is why we turn to books. If we can’t […]
