Ever since Whit and Wisty Allgood were cruelly torn from their home and family in the middle of the night, the soldiers of a brutal totalitarian government have relentlessly tried to capture and execute them for 'collusion, conspiracy, and experimentation with the dark and foul arts'. But this supremely skilled witch and wizard have instead boldly spearheaded the fight against the wicked regime of the New Order and its systematic destruction of music, art, books, and imagination.
The villainous leader of the New Order is just a breath away from the ability to control the forces of nature and to manipulate his citizens on the most profound level imaginable - through their minds. There is only one more thing he needs to triumph in his evil quest: the Gifts of Whit and Wisty Allgood. And he will stop at nothing to seize them.Contraportada:
LISTEN TO ME. WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME.
They call my sister and me a witch and a wizard. We're considered wanted criminals. Your so-called enemies. But I need you to trust me when I tell you that these are the worst of times and that the best of times are little more than a distant memory. And no one seems to be paying attention to what's going on. Are you?
Imagine that all the things you love most in the world - and probably take for granted - are now banned. Your books, music, movies, art . . . all snatched away. Burned. That's life under the New Order . . . Now, with every waking breath, we have to fight for every freedom we have left. Even our imagination is at risk. Can you picture your government trying to destroy that? It's inhuman.
But if you're one of the few who've escaped the N.O.'s clutches, you need to hear our story. And the story of the Resistance. So when we're gone, there's someone left to spread the word.
Someone to fight the good fight.
And so we begin . . .
