This is a review I recently received on my latest book, The Wizards Return, from a fellow author in Uganda.
The Wizards Return” was a very fascinating experience. The story is well told and written, and it is so in times when many aspects of our world that exist within the natural constructs, are in dire need of saving. The author offers us, in a unique and mesmerizing way, more than a glimpse of our own dereliction. He further suggests that reviving and consolidating nature and the environment is a collective responsibility. This is an epic fantasy story, an intriguing piece of passion, action, deep-seated traditions, conflict, adventure , great vision and exceptional courage. It is a deeply grounded story of reviving the glory of the devastated country of Now. After the war that leaves the once glorious country of Now in shambles, it is only the true Wizards who can restore this broken nation. The rubble and ash state of Now is a warning to humanity, of what might come as a result of continuing to alter the earth's delicate balances and taking nature for granted. Once you read this book you realize a possibility of life coming to an end, since the natural environment provides the basic conditions without which humanity cannot thrive. You will see Daniel as he transits from his preserved life on the mountain living with his grandfather, the confusion and grief that greets his eyes after his grandfather's sudden demise, to turning out the Wizard predestined to handle the staff, to finally unravelling the Giving Tree, which is truly captivating. I recomend this book to anyone who loves fantansy, because Author Micheal Walsh does you complete justice. I also recomend “The Wizards Return” to those that like surprises. Walking the journey along with the characters in this book helps you share their moments of joy, fear and threat. You are able to freely wander and then wonder, which is one hell of an experience you wouldn't dare to miss!

4.0 out of 5 stars A book that will leave you thinking March 7, 2015
By Eileen E. Pearce
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a world where we are inundated with greed, lust, self-aggrandizement, and obsessive technological competition, is is refreshing to a read a novel that focuses on our basic humanity. Author Mike Walsh obviously believes in the power of good over evil and how effective simple trust and teamwork could be in changing the world for the better. Yes, it also helps to have the power of wizardry behind you when you set off to save the world, but it is how that power is used, not just the fire balls, thunderbolts, telepathy, and miraculous healing talents of the wizards, that make this story special.

Daniel has spent his 25 years living on a mountaintop with his grandfather. When he loses his grandfather, the only family he has ever known, Daniel is faced with leaving his home and peaceful life to join a group of people living in the desolate and nearly lifeless country of Now. Once a beautiful, thriving community, Now was destroyed in a great war and its remaining inhabitants are barely surviving. Despite the devastation, danger still lurks in the person of Peter, a contemporary of Daniel's grandfather whose life's obsession is to possess the magic staff that he believes will give him ultimate power over Now. The staff is currently housed in a museum and legend has it that only the true owner, a descendant of the original Wizards of Now, can use the staff's power to save Now and restore life to the country. When Daniel meets his grandfather's friend Gavin and his niece and nephew, Anna and Marcus, he is shocked to learn that he might be destined to play a role in finding the staff and restoring peace and tranquility to the country.

The Wizards Return has some of everything a young adult reader might want: action, intrigue, romance, and some good old-fashioned battles. It even offers some telepathic communication with the local wildlife. For me, though the main thread that runs through the novel is that we can overcome almost any obstacle and get through the worst imaginable situations if we have faith in ourselves and in our own power to achieve the impossible. Oh, and the magic powers don't hurt, either! I am not really a fan of fantasy or wizardry, but The Wizards Return offers much more than just magic and adventure. It offers both a scary glimpse of how our world might end up and a glimmer of hope that enough of our innate humanity will survive to save it. I like a book that leaves you thinking, and this one does.

Nine years ago my first story was published. Since then, if you go to my website to check, mikesbookgallery.weebly.com, I have added eleven more. During that time I have had the pleasure of meeting and making friends with fellow authors from all over the world. They are some amazing people and I have truly enjoyed their friendship and support.
It is a fulfilling experience for someone who writes to have another person read what they have written and enjoy it. I have been extremely blessed by the people you have read what I have written. It has been a great ride for the past nine years and I have loved the experience.

Introduction
I am someone who has written five books to this point. The first three were non-fiction pieces. Kaeleb's Dad, a story of the first nine months of our youngest son's live after he was diagnosed as a near-miss SIDS child, and how we dealt with it. Eddie's Method, a story of the violents deaths that surrounded me as a teenager and how i dealt with it. Just Some Old Man, an account of the four times I have been close to dying and my responses.
  The next two books were of the fantasy genre. Whetstone Chronicle and Largo of the Whetstone Chronicle. I am currently working on another fantasy.
