I had not been confident that I would really like this particular brand new series due to the fact turned out on the market, consequently I proceeded to go the graphical novel path for a change. Excellent storyline that basically joined together. The pictures had been exceptionally well performed at the same time.....along with the conclusion that does not make you hanging as some graphical books have a tendency to carry out....I would suggest it in case you are undecided regarding the series!

I should have known but did not realize it was a comic book. And I must say that reading a comic on the Nook or Nook Color is not a fun experience. I returned it.

This is a story after the first book, Witch & Wizard. It is the continued story of two young adults, Whit and Wisty, and a group of other teenagers that are being hunted down by the New Order. This edition has Wisty, Whit, and Byron Swain breaking into the New Orders building and stealing a hard drive that has information that they need to have. After learning what the New Order is up to, the teenagers break up into two groups. One is to go to the Shadowlands and recruit as many half-lights as possible while the other group is to find out about some devices that are being made. I admit that I have not read the Witch & Wizard series yet so I didn't know what to expect. I recommend that you do so, it make everything easier to understand. From there, this is a short graphic novel, one edition. The artwork is standard graphic novel. I got this as an Adobe Digital Edition and tried to put it on my Nook. You are not going to be able to read this with the Nook or Kindle. I just read it off my computer. In the end, I am interested in the rest of the story so I will be reading Witch & Wizard at some point and will probably get a subscription to the graphic novel. If you follow the series, I think this is a good way to add to it if you like graphic novels. I received this free from netGalley in exchange for an honest review.

So I read Witch & Wizard and the Gift. Both are very detailed and well written, so of course I had high expectations for the comic. I am sorry to say that, I was disappointed. The plot isn't major and the cartoons seem unrealistic. I mean seriously, When do the characters have pink and purple hair??? Wisty looks fine in design, but Whit looks like Hulk...I thought he was suppose to look like a high school athlete, not a huge guy with big muscles! Well, it was certainly interesting to read/look at, but I wouldn't buy it. Just check it our from the library or spend 30 minutes at a bookstore reading it, it's not that long.

i amn a 46 year old male that dosent read on a regular basis. i found the witch and wizard and the gift great and smooth reading. i reccommend this series to any one that likes to get caught up in a book with the time to read it in one or two sittings. it will draw you and and you wont be able to put it down until your finished and then you will be on the web searching to see when the next one is due on the market.

This graphic novel is based on the Witch and Wizard series by James Patterson. I was given the first issue of the graphic novel in exchange for an honest review. The full novel will be in stores October 2011.I was a little disappointed with this work. The beginning felt stagnant and didn't draw me in as I had hoped. About half way through I started to feel as if this was something I wanted to read. There was just enough mystery that I want to read the next installment but I didn't connect enough to the characters to really care if I read it or not.This is one of the problems with graphic novels, the development is different. I could see areas where the artist was attempting a connection but it was too far away for me. It's possible that Battle for Shadowland is not the first graphic novel series for Witch and Wizard. If that is so, then I suggest starting with the first to create a connection. If it's not, then perhaps that connection can only be made for those who have read the actual Witch and Wizard series.

Harry Potter meets 1984 meets Farenheit 451 describes this book. It was a very interesting tale about two teenagers who are kidnapped from their home in the middle of the night and begin discovering that they have magical powers which the New Order, the dictorial form of government fear. The first book was about their discovery of powers and escape from the hands of the New Order. It will be interesting to see where they find themselves in the second book.

It looks horribly different from the from the preview i got ..... but thats probably because i looked at the manga by svetlana chmakova ....... thats for certain how i imagined it i.e.~the manga is WAYYY better in my opinion atleast.
