This is the eighth book in the Young Wizards series. It continues the story of Nita, Kit, Ponch, and the other young wizards they've met on other worlds. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend you start with the first book and work your way to this one. Diane continues her story without any kind of prologue. There are brief references to events in the earlier books without any kind of recap of the sequence of events. In this story Nita, Kit, and the crew (including Kit's older sister Carmela) head out to discover what is happening with the dark matter in the universe. It seems to be growing and the elder wizards can't stop it. In fact, if the younger wizards can't stop it either, it may just be the end of the universe. As the dark matter grows and the universe expands like a balloon, wizardry no longer works as it should and the elder wizards forget that magic even exists. The younger wizards are completely on their own. Once again Nita, Kit and their friends must save the world from the Lone One's work. This story actually has two events. Just when you think the work is done and the universe is saved, you find out that there is yet another threat that must be handled before Earth is saved...for the moment. Just like the maid (or a mother), a wizard's work is never done.
