Description

Long Island's teen wizard returns in "an unusually consistent fantasy, rich in details, subplots, and Irish lore" from the author of High Wizardry (School Library Journal). To give fifteen-year-old Nita a vacation from magic—and her partner Kit—her parents pack her off for a stay with her eccentric aunt in Ireland. But Nita soon finds herself with a host of Irish wizards battling mythical beings, wolves, and elves from a nightmare land. In Wizard Abroad, "Duane seamlessly interweaves encounters with creatures from legend with glimpses of modern Irish life and teen culture. Her view of magic's place in the scheme of things is so clever and well reasoned that readers will have no trouble suspending belief (School Library Journal). "Exceptional."—Science Fiction Chronicle "The series may be of particular interest to female readers as Nita and her younger sister are the focus of most of the books and they are strong female characters. If you've read the other Wizardry books, this fourth book in the series won't disappoint you."—SF Site Praise for the Young Wizards series "Duane is tops in the high adventure business . . . This rollicking yarn will delight readers."—Publishers Weekly "High Wizardry is . . . high entertainment."—Locus "Recommend this series to young teens who devour books about magic and wizards . . . or kids looking for 'Harry Potter' read-alikes."—School Library Journal "Stands between the works of Diana Wynne Jones . . . and Madeleine L'Engle . . . An outstanding, original work."—The Horn Book
