Read full description of the books:
I started reading this series when I was in middle school and reread the first four books countless times, so when I won a Twitter contest to be a named character in this book I was ECSTATIC. (Rivka added the relevant pages (no spoilers) to her review). It was a very peculiar feeling to read along in a book with characters that I have known for years and run into a description of myself (TALL BLOND LADIES FOREVER AMIRITE?). So I obviously loved that part of the book, and as someone who loves the Magic Tournament trope I was all in on the rest of the plot.
The most important thing to know about this installment is that it is only for people who have read and loved the other Young Wizards books. This is a doorstopper of a book, at 600+ pages, and about 400 of those pages are conversations with or cameos from wizards we've met before. The plot threads pull from previous books too. I would have liked for more focus to be on the Invitational, because ultimately these characters end up saving the world in every book -- I was looking forward to having a lightweight, human-focused plot line in this book with some added shenanigans. That said, I did like the exploration of the different kinds of wizardry practiced in different countries, and the Mehrnaz/Dairine relationship was great.
On Nita and Kit: (view spoiler)[it felt like I wasn't getting the important scenes between the two characters. They do quite a lot of talking or thinking about their relationship, but then the parts where I assume they're ~hooking up~ or whatever it's fade to black! The one conversation that really felt missing was Nita and Kit after the duel. I could have done without the Irina-Penn-Kit conversation if I could have had a really emotionally charged recap between Nita and Kit. It had to happen, so why was it off screen? (hide spoiler)]
As a final note, I know someone who looks and dresses like Penn Shao Feng in real life so I enjoyed that very much.
