This one I found to be a hard read, both for content, and for, "Wait, I'm not sure that follows," In a couple places. Which really boils down to, "I loved it enough to be frustrated by some very small areas," Which means I got way more invested in it than I do for most books. ( )

Would have been my favorite in the series thus far if not for the ending. I found it profoundly dissatisfying. ( )

This book may take a little longer to get into than the previous installments, but once it does, it is the same roller-coaster ride as always.

For the first time since their Ordeal, Nita and Kit have had a major fight. Unsure of how to reconcile, they drift their seperate ways for a while. And everything is just made ten times worse when Nita's family gets the news: her mother has brain cancer.

Nita's only hope seems to lie in a very difficult and technical type of wizardry that involves manipulating the "kernel" of a universe, its energy center. Only by rewiring her mother's inner "kernel" can Nita possibly save her.

While Kit tries to deal with a rapidly changing Ponch, who is developing weird powers, Nita attends a "training ground" for wizards working with "kernels." But when the Lone Power comes to her to make a deal to save her mother's life, Nita finds herself questioning everything she is as a human and a wizard. And only Kit may be able to intervene before it's too late.

Gripping, powerful, and heart-wrenching, this book tackles the big questions that haunt us all: What would you be willing to do to save the ones you love? What is it like to be losing a mother? How powerful is the love of a parent? And when everything around you is falling apart, who's going to hold you together? ( )

This one is quite depressing. ( )

Of all the books in the series I've read so far, this one felt closest to the original for me. I think this was probably largely because it takes place in NYC, while the 2nd-4th books in the series take Nita and Kit to a wide variety of other places. I also felt much more emotionally invested in this one than in the 2nd-4th books, probably because the plot was much more personal for Nita and Kit. In books 2, 3, and 4, our heroes are helping out in situations that are really other peoples' problems to some extent or another, but in the first book and in this one, the problems are largely theirs.

My only real complaint about this book is one that I have about the series overall (except for Book One), and that is that the rules and magic feel slightly inconsistent throughout the series. For example, over time, spells have become tangible things that can be carried around, manipulated, and put away for reuse. In the original book, spells felt more natural, like writing in the dirt with sticks rather than creating magical runes that appear in thin air. Also, I was under the impression that using an incorrect form of your name in a spell automatically changes you to be whatever that form of your name describes, but in this book, a similar event occurs and the spell simply doesn't work properly. I think things like this could be done better and made clearer, but in general, I really enjoyed this book a lot, and I would like to track down and finish the rest of the series, now. ( )

The revelation of some uneasy secrets

would move most anything, even pigs and fishes,

to lift their heads and speak: and at such times

it furthers one to cross the great dark water

and learn the truth its silent shadows hide.

In the wet, reedy evening, birdsong echoes,

old calling young, eventually answered;

while another stands in the dark and calls its fellow,

hearing for answer only the ancient silence

in which tears fall, under a moon near-full.

The lead horse breaks the traces and goes astray

to cry its clarion challenge harsh at heaven.

Understandably. But can it understand in time

the danger that dogs immoderate success?…


—hexagram 61: “a wind troubles the waters”
If Time has a heart,

it is because other hearts stop.
