Even wizards desire a holiday sometimes...
Rest and rest: that's what Nita Callahan thinks she's going to get while she discovers that her little sister Dairine has signed her up for a wizardly "cultural exchange" software, sending Nita and her partner-wizard equipment midway around the Galaxy over the spring break.
But not anything approximately wizardry is ever really that easy. For something, again domestic, Dairine and her dad need to focus on the opposite facet of the alternate: the 3 younger wizards who've simply moved into the Callahan loved ones, wanting to commence experiencing an odd alien tradition -- Earth.
After just a couple of days of driving herd on a apprehensive shrub, a chatty, adventurous tremendous centipede and a stuck-up alien prince, Dairine's already unsure she will stand weeks of this -- or if her father, let alone the remainder of the hot York metropolitan region, will ever get well. after which the genuine difficulty starts...
Meanwhile, millions of lightyears away, package and Nita are taking it effortless as venerated site visitors in an almost excellent international: a utopian planet that barely turns out to want wizards in any respect, the place issues nearly by no means get it wrong. yet their very own slowly growing to be suspicions and the more and more unusual senses of Kit's puppy Ponch lead the 3 of them to the paradise planet's one shadowy mystery.
Its discovery forces Nita and gear to head underground and connect to a most unique best friend -- their oldest and deadliest enemy, bizarrely cause on doing what could be the solid deed of an entire life. Or may possibly not...and basically Nita and equipment can cease the plot, or see it via: retailer an entire species, or condemn it to a terrible fate.
Just one other wizard's holiday...
