Oz Will Fall: The Grimoire by John Malone and Nicole Delgado is an atmospheric, gripping tale that transports readers into the magical world of Oz, a place that was once brimming with light and magic, but which is on the brink of collapse, attacked by vicious enemies. The sun barely shines now and the deterioration increases as days pass by. Dorothy has suffered great loss from the evil Cletus Baum — a man thirsty for power and revenge and the bringer of death. She has lost her love and family in a very painful way, but having escaped, she is determined to fight back to protect the land she loves so dearly. But who can withstand a magic so ancient and evil as what is about to befall Oz, and with those in power becoming weaker and weaker every day, can Dorothy lead the fight?
John Malone and Nicole Delgado have created an ideal escape for fans of fantasy. The characters are compelling, real, and easy to love. It is hard to read this book without getting strongly, emotionally connected to the characters. Dorothy is my favorite character and the sense of pathos is brilliantly built around her. The setting is vividly created with images that readers can easily imagine. The narrative is done in an absorbing, first person voice. Oz Will Fall: The Grimoire is fast paced, featuring a phenomenal conflict that propels the story forward. It is intelligently plotted, with a powerful premise that immediately grabs the interest of the reader. When the reader is introduced to the crisis in Oz, they want to know what will happen, they want to see what the villain will do next, and they care about the characters from the beginning of the story. It takes skill to sustain a reader’s attention throughout a story and these authors have that skill.
