The Deadly Wizard Games by Scott Spotson is a story about when the earth becomes a disaster zone on the brink of nuclear war, four wizards overthrow the United States government and decide to take over the entire world. This does not go over well with the humans, who are mad at the interruption. In an attempt to reach out to them, the wizards appoint Amanda Fullerton as a liaison between the wizards and the rest of the world. It is from her viewpoint that we see what happens in this strange new world.

Opinion: 

I became immersed in the world presented in The Deadly Wizard Games from the beginning of the story. The concept of wizards taking control of the government was quite interesting to me. Reading about all of the magical games was definitely a treat, and I found myself wishing I could play them, too.

I have never read anything quite like this story. The characters were very realistic; I wish all stories had characters who think like actual people. I enjoyed the pacing of the novel, as well as the politics and philosophies it discussed.

I liked the main character, Amanda, as I could see a lot of myself in her. However, I did not feel the same way about many of the other characters. It was difficult to form strong connections with them. Overall, I really liked how things turned out within the novel. I definitely look forward to what this author has to offer in the future!
