My current favorite series. At the moment, there's nine books out in the series. Anyone else read them?

Never heard of them. What are they about?

They're not like a spin-off Harry Potter are they? :?

Actually, they Young Wizards was written before harry potter, and really, they aren't at all alike. Yeah, they're about a couple kids in the modern world who become wizards, but that's where the similarity ends. There's no school, it's more of it do-it-yourself kind of thing. You somehow acquire a wizard's manual and it tells you what you need to know, and you can find a senior if you need more help. And even the concept of what wizards are is unique from other fantasies. Wizards have this religion, it has some parallels with christianity. Basically, there are a bunch of higher beings who created the world, but then one of them created death, and wizards exist to stop that. It's a really good series.

Book 10 of the Young Wizards series is under contract and DD is working on it right now; its title will be announced in 2011, as part of the runup to the release of the paperback edition of A Wizard of Mars. Book 11 is completely plotted out and ready to begin: book 12 is in development. So far no information has been released about the plots or character lineups in any of these, but as soon as there's news, it will appear in the Young Wizards discussion forums and on the YW news and events blog.

:shock: That's a lot of books.


But not that bad, compared to Redwall and WoT. :)

I'll go see if the library has them. I'm gonna be in Gville all day tomorrow anyway. :) ... :shock: Now I have an excuse to go to Hastings!!!! :D
