Dont take shrewd, eleven-year-old Dairine Callahan for just any bratty younger sibling. Impatient for adventure, knowledge, and recognition, maybe even a little jealous of her wizardly older sister, Dairine comes across Nitas copy of the WizardsMoreDont take shrewd, eleven-year-old Dairine Callahan for just any bratty younger sibling. Impatient for adventure, knowledge, and recognition, maybe even a little jealous of her wizardly older sister, Dairine comes across Nitas copy of the Wizards Manual and reads the Wizards Oath aloud....Disappointingly, nothing seems to happen.

But when her familys new computer arrives, Dairine discovers that its come with a whole lot more than the usual bundled software.The computer contains a beta version of the new online edition of the Wizards Manual. Wrapped up inside it is a whole worlds worth of spells, secrets and magical knowledge...and its all hers to play with.Never the kind to do anything by halves, Dairine launches herself into a reckless, cross-universe, high-voltage magical conflict with the Lone Power.

It falls to Nita and Kit to track Dairine down before she gets into trouble so deep that not even her precocious brains can save her.But by the time they catch up with her, its already too late. On a bleak and empty world, Dairine has already become the wizardly godmother to a brand new life-form. And the relentless Enemy of all new life is even now hot on her trail, intent on ending the threat Dairine poses...permanently.Pacing that doesnt let up from the very beginning...and a Heinleinesque affection for the characters.

Duane writes about people you can really care about, with lots of quirks and endearing traits that feel real in a way most writers dont manage. ... Duane is a gifted storyteller. (Locus)The sheer effrontery of the plot -- coupled with the gritty charm of the characters and the sprightly dialogue of these credible siblings -- makes for enormous fun.
