The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell

Review by Sam (Aged 11)

I had planned to review the new book from How to Train Your Dragon’s Cressida Cowell, but the book was stolen by reviewer Sam, and so I had to ask him to do the review this week.

Wizards of once is the first book in a new series by Cressida Cowell and it follows the adventures of two unlikely heroes from two opposing sides in a war between wizards and warriors. They are called Xar and Wish. Xar is the son of the Wizard King and has no magic and will try to get it at any cost. Wish is the daughter of The Warrior Queen and is secretly hiding magical items. By some miracle they have found their way to each other and have to try and fight the return of witches!!!!!

My favourite character is Wish because she shows a girl can be a badass as well as a  boy. She also has good motives for her mission but I can’t tell you what that is because of spoilers!

I recommend this book for ages 7 to adult because it is a fun read all around and just to show that I will tell you that I am impatient for the second book in the series and it comes out next year. Also if you liked the how to train your dragon series you will like the series.
