Grumpy Old Wizards Spin A Spell of Suspense and Surprises



Grumpy Old WizardsGrumpy Old Wizards by John O’Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just finished reading John O’Riley’s book Grumpy Old Wizards – book 1, (this book was sent to me free of charge for an honest review).

An honest review isn’t hard to give since O’Riley’s book had me on the edge of my chair the whole time! It is a double-spaced 372-page book but I was so enthralled with it that I read the book in three days! It would have been less if things in life were necessary to attend to.

I ran across a couple of spelling errors, typos, and one area where I think a couple sentences got flipped around, but overall “Grumpy Old Wizards” flowed smoothly.

It is a great fantasy book for young adults to us elder readers who love magic, and surprises at every turn in a book.

About Me: – From The Wondering Mind Of THE Artist and The Beak Of A Hawk


I am Trinton “TrinityHawk” Garrett, I am a guy just like every other guy. I live my life loving my family, loving the Earth we live upon, living the spirituality that is apart of who I am.

I study life, religions, and philosophies and I love reading as much as I love writing and creating art.  To me life is art, art is beauty, and all things are beautiful.

On a more basic aspect of who I am;  I run two businesses a freelance art business where I create Multimedia art and Indie book covers. I also am a writer of short stories, poetry, and publisher of an alternative magazine.

I combine these skills and create my own e-books in which I will be selling on my own page soon.  I also sell my art work on my page, but for now I sell it on my two art pages:

Society6 and Redbubble

I suffer of chronic pain aliment Fibromyalgia and Lower back issue, as well as a few  life time trails that I have had to face which have made me stronger. However, I won’t say it made my life a better life, because that is a Bullshit phrase.  Buddha, Christ, who ever you want to quote, might say with life comes pain and suffering but not one said it will make your life better.  This is because they each one have stated it will make you wiser and more enlightened, perhaps with this wisdom life will be better, but this is up to each person individually.  I try to use all these experiences to educate people in order to prevent the younger generation from having to suffer with and through as much, and will be able to choose their own path a bit easier.

Book Review: Monsterland by Michael Phillip Cash – HE DID IT AGAIN!!


Monsterland It is the perfect book to read at Halloween time (any time actually).

Even though I am not a fan of Horror books or movies, I was enthralled with this book! If I hadn’t had other things to do this past week, I would of had this book read in two days.

Cash wrote this book for either adults or young adults to enjoy. It reminded me a lot of the older goose bump books, but did have a bit of gory details about the monsters and how they were killed, such as; “…Wyatt reacted whacking the ax against the head, watching in sickening astonishment as it cleaved it in two , brains spilling out like water from a broken faucet….” or killed; such as, “He leaped up, sinking his fierce teeth into the soft skin of the keeper’s neck, cutting off his vocal cords, so he died quickly and silently. The blood spurted like a fountain….” . But, really nothing compared to the horror movies young adults watch these days or some of the post apocalypse books and movies are like. Plus, It just made the book all that much more enthralling and made the writing so much more edgy of your seat worthy.

Cash counter acts these moments with a wonderful sense of humor and levity; such as; “He spun in a circle, throwing the disconnected head at another group of shuffling zombies that feel like bowling pins. “Strike,” Wyatt said with satisfaction.”

Thank You!
