I thought this book was a delightful mixture of magic and fantasy, with a clever plot twist.
I was enticed into a world of wizards, witches and warriors the second I started to read this cunning story of misfortunes and battles. Nothing went the obvious way in my experience of this book. I think Cressida Cowell developed a brilliant combination of adventure and intrigue.
Xar a wizard boy, has a big secret he has been sent to prison for. Wish is a warrior girl who has a magic object and will do anything to hide it from her mother. Together they embark upon a quest to rid the world of the evil witches, but will they return home alive?
I really enjoyed most of the book and the really liked the cliff hanger at the end. If you like the How to Train your Dragon series, I think you’ll like the Wizards of Once.
