No outsider has set foot on the island of Manhattan for the past three years, and with good reason

No outsider has set foot on the island of Manhattan for the past three years, and with good reason. It's become a place of wild, dark magic, where technology and the laws of science do not work. The dark kingdom of Manhattan is at war with the United States, seeking to spread across the river to the rest of the world.

She’s been kidnapped by Winterthorn’s minions and taken into the depths of the Magic Kingdom. It’s a mission that can only be accomplished by a mage powerful enough to face down Winterthorn

Listen to books in audio format. Under the Greenwood Tree" is the story of the romantic entanglement between church musician, Dick Dewey, and the attractive new school mistress, Fancy Day. A pleasant romantic tale set in the Victorian era, "Under the Greenwood Tree" is one of Thomas Hardy's most gentle and pastoral novels.

Nobody has been inside Manhattan for the past three years, and with good reason. And it's at war with the United States-a dark kingdom that seeks to spread across the river to the rest of the world, with armies of trolls, goblins, imps, ghouls and harpies gathering under the command of a dark sorcerer: Everett Winterthorn. Isaac Silverberg is his former apprentice who is plucked from Death Row and given a final chance to redeem himself.

The Hairy Heart: A Guide to Wizards Who Won't Commit was a Wizarding self-help book that topped bestseller lists. Presumably, it helped assist a witch or wizard to avoid having "a hairy heart," which was a Wizarding expression that described someone who was cold or unfeeling or who had trouble committing to a relationship. It should not be confused with Hairy Snout, Human Heart, a book about one wizard's struggle with lycanthropy.

No outsider has set foot on the island of Manhattan for the past three years, and with good reason. It's become a place of wild, dark magic, where technology and the laws of science do not work. The dark kingdom of Manhattan is at war with the United States, seeking to spread across the river to the rest of the world. Its armies of trolls, goblins, imps, ghouls and harpies are under the command of a dark sorceror: Everett Winterthorn, the Midnight King.

Isaac Silverberg is Winterthorn's former apprentice, plucked from Death Row and given a final chance to redeem himself. The US Army makes him an offer he can't refuse: his life, in exchange for rescuing the daughter of the governor of New Jersey. She's been kidnapped by Winterthorn's minions and taken into the depths of the Magic Kingdom.

It's a mission that can only be accomplished by a mage powerful enough to face down Winterthorn. Unfortunately for Isaac Silverberg, the government believes that he is that man. In fact, they are quite sure of it.

Isaac himself isn't so sure...

The only reason why I didn't give this a 5 star review was that there were a couple...slow moments. I enjoyed the whole thing otherwise, the art was beautiful and the story was engaging. Though if you aren't interested in the idea of post apocalyptic stories you shouldn't read it. If you have trouble with religion possibly taking an added importance in such a world you shouldn't read it. Actually if you have a problem with stories you shouldn't read it. This is fiction, enjoy it or don't bother with it.

I picked this book off the shelf because I've always liked stories about an upstart apprentice taking down an evil master. After reading it, I discovered that's not really what this story is about.

I can't say much else about the plot because it has some very nice turns in it. The characters are better than I expected and intriguing, even the evil ones. I thought the magic system was good/sound and the way it was used in the story worked well, both at advancing the plot and showing the characters for who they were. The artwork was lovely and the action scenes came across both clear and exciting. Also, I thought the various perspectives on the takeover of Manhattan were nice. My favorite parts were the scenes between Isaac and Hope. Though they had very little time together, those scenes were sweet. In fact, their final scene together is one of my favorite "final couple scenes" in manga.

That said, I hadn't realized the strong spiritual/religious themes this story contained based on the back cover description. They make sense in the story and I enjoyed the perspective, but some may be turned off by them. Also, the places where the off-stage dialogue mirrored the on-stage action got a little old. I think it's because I'm not in the targeted audience. It seems to be targeted to older teenage boys who don't mind a little romance in their stories. I'm neither a teenager nor a boy. In spite of that, I really enjoyed this book. I'm glad I bought it.

This is the first manga I ever read. I'd always been into anime but never read it only watched it and played the video games. But after taking my friend's advice and actually reading one I came across this book at the bookstore and couldn't put it down. I loved the storyline and the art was spectacular. What I really like is that it's not like one of those manga's where you get the first book and then you continue to pay 10 dollars for the next 30 books. This is one shot novel that has all the chapters in it to enjoy. And it's at a very good price too. Since this book I've fallen in love with manga and I still love this one a lot and read it over from time to time. I definitely recommend this one to anyone who likes manga.

Making a magical apocalyptic manhattan is, at best, a long shot. The majority of these media types are destined to fail before they begin. As an avid manga and anime fan, i judge books by their covers(at least the back preview). When making my way through a local stores manga section, I spied, amongst the plain white backed character portraits, a dysmal reddish sky with a melancholic young man and one bold word, Wizard. I stopped, arms full of all 12 Death note volumes, and gazed at its wonderful cover. I balanced the other manga and picked it up to read the back. I then set it down and purchased my manga. Two weeks later, i found it again. This time i flipped through it. I felt like i got slapped. This wonderful work of art I had ignorantly set down jumped at me liked Harry potter never could. I purchased it and read it on the way home. I was intrigued by its story and couldnt stop. The art was immersive and the story gripping. No amount of wand waving could match these wizards. I have read it five times since and would recommend it to anyone tired of typical manga. THIS is Chris Angels bad acid trip to hell. And for the price, it is hard to beat.

It Takes a Wizard, is a wonderful book filled with everything from action to drama, politics to romance, fantasy and so much more. With incredible fight scenes and constant action, excitment and intrigue, it forces you to keep turning the page until you've finished it, and even then it leaves you screaming for more. Amazing artwork, wonderful text, and an easy to read setup makes it one of my favourite mangas(so far). I would recommend this book to any manga lover seeking some new entertainment, but to those who haven't read manga it brings the challenge of figuring out which way the text goes and which way to turn the page. As I've seen from experience from some of my friends. :) A truly wonderful book.
