The world has gone to *#$@ in a hand-basket. Childish antics and individuality are no longer tolerated in this stuffy, totalitarian, adult-centered world. Children are being rounded up in droves and carted off to concentration camp-like prisons, never to be seen again. It's up to Whit and Wisty, teen siblings from a seemingly normal family, to save society from itself. Of course, first they have to bust out of prison and develop their magical powers.

Overall, I don't believe that this is the best book that Patterson has ever written. Wisty's character was delightful with her can-do, so-get-out-of-my-way attitude. The absence of helpful adults in society bothered me. I didn't feel that Patterson made the dictatorship take-over of society completely believable. It was still an enjoyable read, though. I would recommend this to young adult readers that enjoy fantasy. Anyone that likes Harry Potter, especially the later titles in the series, would enjoy this.
