    One thought on “Wizards Rising: The Cataclysm”

    1. The Deadly Wizard Games was a well written book, full of inventive similes and strong imagery Amanda wasn t the most likeable of main characters, but the plot was interesting and unpredictable The world building, or in this case world destroying, was fascinating to read about Not many dystopians post apocalyptic novels I ve read go into detail about how the nuclear war went Usually it begins with the story taking place decades after the nukes hit, but here the wizards save humanity from the dest [...]

    2. An embattled president, leading a corrupt administration, finds himself and everything he fights to keep torn apart when wizards invade his office and take over Soon, it becomes apparent this is happening worldwide, as wizards change how humanity exists Scott Spotson s novel of world domination by wizards first comes across as a fantasy, but it is soon apparent there are glaring problems What is real in fact isn t, and what is fantasy limps along Spotson ignores the first and most important rule [...]

    3. This was a brilliantly entertaining book It is so original and the author s vivid imagination deserves a medal alone It is well written and laced with humour, great characters and sharp dialogue The writing is clever also and even throws in a line from my favourite philosopher Kierkegaard It was well edited and formatted and I guarantee you won t have read such an original and refreshingly great book like this all year Great stuff

    4. In this original and entertaining novel, four wizards appear in the Oval Office of the White House and usurp the corrupt US President They destroy all nuclear weapons and launching capability, and introduce a global bitcoin currency The story is off to an interesting start.Amanda isn t a wizard, but is voted to a position where she acts as liaison between the magical folk and mortals The rest of the story is told through her eyes.I liked the story, although the scenes where the wizards had their [...]

    5. Edited to add was harassed by the author for my review, and had contact with a fellow reader also harassed I suggest avoiding this one Amanda is a politically minded young woman So when four wizards take over the government and then very swiftly the world, changing things to suit themselves and according to their own agenda, she s exactly the sort of person to jump at the job of human wizard liaison aka, Supreme Liaison The wizards tell the world they do a lot of telling people stuff that they v [...]

    6. This was tricky to rate I d say 3.5 because of my personal tastes and thought processes, but it was enjoyable enough to entertain me and probably most people, so I ll lean towards 4.The premise here was quite unique The world is a mess, verging on nuclear war, so what would it take to save it If all powerful wizards overthrew every government and took charge, would that be better Wizards and politics aren t things you naturally put together, but it s an interesting combination I really liked the [...]

    7. In this review, I quote a few parts directly from the book.The Deadly Wizard Games is an imaginative story about what happens after wizards take over the world The story is imaginative, but there were many things about it that threw me off There were some incorrectly worded parts, for example then we can figure out who they are what their agenda they have Or she had with quite a bit of steam to let off Or One of the other applicants screamed as they discovered the same thing Since they is a plur [...]

    8. I received a copy of The Four Kings as a first reads giveaway.Cool premise, but poor execution The book is self published, and unfortunately it shows I managed to get through 10 chapters about 70 pages of text that moved quickly, but were so poorly written that I couldn t get into the story The grammar was distractingly bad in parts, and the dialogue was plastic Unfortunately, the bad writing was only the beginning.Plot Nothing horribly bad here, other than the lack of a main character for nearl [...]

    9. UNREALIZED POTENTIAL Spotson begins with the challenge of making a nuclear free Utopia and bit coin economy that turns out to be driven by a street rat and immature punks Why would god bother They happen to be wizards, who debate how to evolve the governance of earth, but there s no vision or Enlightenment here Too bad they didn t read Plato, Socrates, Locke and Swift Instead they settle for Anne Rand and Kierkegaard, like volunteering for a lobotomy If you re under thirty and never read history [...]

    10. Wizard for dayInstead of having a normal introduction to a story, you get some wizards that do the first thing you would have done if somebody would have told you You get to be wizard for a day and have all the power From where will start with saving the world I kept reading and things got interesting by the minute I started wondering what crazy thing the author will come up with next The characters were strong and Scott managed to make the perfect wizards show their flaws mostly through their [...]

    11. I read the sample 8 chapters, 492 locations and that was than enough Lame writing and lamer characters Clearly an indie author with over inflated ratings of the generic OMG, this is the best thing I ve ever read variety Twenty minutes of my life wasted.

    12. Just as the world is on the brink of global nuclear disaster, four young wizards take over all world governments and announce that they are now in charge They are bringing sweeping changes that will solve all the petty problems the mortals experience Because they rule from an off world location in the sky and have little real interaction with humans, they choose liasons.Amanda Fullerton, a young social worker, gets the job which is one of mostly explaining the changes and fielding questions or c [...]

    13. How would you re create a corrupt, failing, unjust world if you had the power That is the question the four kings, young wizards by the name of Demus, Regi, Indie and Justica, are than prepared to answer Scott Spotson s Four Kings is an extremely ambitious novel with a worldwide canvass, dealing with everything from politics, ethics, morality, economics to philosophy The early part of the novel in fact, where the wizards relieve the corrupt and incompetent US president of his office and begin t [...]

    14. The Four Kings reminded me in a very general way of Ernest Callenbach s Ecotopia Emerging It has a similar sort of cultural upheaval story, though one pursued along different lines It also follows the life of a young woman who finds herself as the focal point of the change In this case, all of the change is abrupt, wrenched into existence by magic.Amanda is a basically likable character through whose eyes we see the wizards and the world There were points when I wished I knew about what she was [...]

    15. To say that I never read anything quite like this book would be an understatement The story involves a contemporary world similar to ours except that it is economically much worse off Unemployment is high, debt is high, wars rage on, politicians are inept, on and on and on Then a bunch of wizards appear that wish to save humanity using methods apparently inspired by Ayn Rand Although the wizards use magic obviously the book earlier on seems to fit neatly into some political category than fantas [...]

    16. The Four Kings storyline is like nothing I ve come across before and after reading many books in the dystopia and paranormal genres I appreciate a book that is truly not derivative The US, and indeed, the whole world, is in dire condition poor economy, corrupt politicians, a world on the brink of war kind of like what we have today Four wizards appear and easily take over North America while their counterparts stage coups in other parts of the planet They are young, overconfident and appear to h [...]

    17. Here is a well written fantasy story Human governments around the world are falling into dysfunction when suddenly four wizards join forces with other wizards around the world to establish regional benevolent dictatorships We in North America receive the Four Kings They in turn select a mortal, Amanda, to represent the humans of North America She serves as an interface between the citizens and the wizards In short she becomes a very important lady in a very short period of time This book is ente [...]

    18. This type of genre is not usually to my preference, but having said that, I truly enjoyed the imagination put into this story Some of the best moments were in the vivid descriptions of the imaginary wizard games and in their private world The plot is an interesting take on what would happen if someone or something could actually destroy what humans have created, pointing out their flaws and such in government and business However, I like the fair tactic Spotson takes in showing all things have t [...]

    19. I bought this book on a recommendation, and I m very glad I did I give this book 4.5 5 stars Here is my breakdown Characters 5 5 This is a real strength for Scott Despite having nearly unlimited power, he does an excellent job of making his wizards seem like real, fallible people that I could imagine in that position I love the fact that they come off nearly omniscient and yet regular Mortals as they are called start pointing out the cracks and flaws in their arguments and ideas Amanda was anoth [...]

    20. This extremely original story begins with US President Arthur Kellog Walker, mired in corruption, scandal and ineptitude, presiding over a cabinet meeting when a pack of wizards or supernatural beings with magical powers burst in and take control they then proceed to expropriate secret nuclear codes and, seemingly, initiate nuclear strikes But they then force the missiles up into the stratosphere, out of harm s way All over the world governments are overthrown, currencies seized, and a New World [...]

    21. One thing I can say about The Four Kings is that it is an wholly original tale One would be hard pressed to categorize this novel or compare it to anything else existing You can t even really say it is insert Harry Potter novel meets insert political thriller meets the Wall Street Journal What Mr Spotson has written is very much his own.The set up is pretty simple, wizards realize that the world is going to Hell in a hand basket and decide it s time they did something about it They take over all [...]

    22. Why The Four Kings you ask There is nothing like it.This novel is an adventure outside of the ordinary What the author offers with The Four Kings is a answer to The Great Blight which is really just a name for an era of recession, violence, unemployment, etc When the bloated leaders of the world cannot reel their prospective countries toward stability Thank god for wizards As per usual, Scott Spotson s writing is spot on, smooth, clever, funny, and most of all he gives great consideration to pac [...]

    23. I haven t read anything like this before, but it certainly drew me in The book plot, characters, etc would have gotten 4.5 stars or so if not for glaring editing errors throughout missed words, subject verb agreement issues, and regular typos If this hadn t come straight from , I would have thought it was a proof copy.Anyway, plot was solid, characters were well developed I enjoyed how Spotson brought a human element to the wizards even though they truly distance themselves from their human orig [...]

    24. I can honestly say that I had no idea what to expect from this book I m not usually a fan of anything supernatural or magic, but I was pleasantly surprised by The Four Kings This is an inherently fun book I m always a fan of humour in a book, whether it be a comedic novel or some kind of dark crime piece, and this certainly has it Clever, witty I have to say that I really enjoyed the style in which Scott writes Also appreciated is the complete originality of this While I ve already admitted to n [...]

    25. For me, this was a matter of an amazing concept, but an awkward execution Initially, the idea of actual wizards rising to power and taking over the world as we know it seemed great, and the opening scenes are a lot of fun As it turned out, however, contemporary politics and magical fantasy just don t mesh especially since it felt as if Spotson himself wasn t fully committed to that mix That narration was okay, if nothing special, but the characters were a little one dimensional, and the dialogue [...]

    26. It s difficult to review this It s quite unique Basically, the human race almost blows itself up in a nuclear fireball but at the last moment the wizards step in and take over They introduce sweeping new economic systems as well as wizard games to keep the population entertained pacified The population is not as grateful as they might be, and the plot of the novel revolves around our heroine Amanda, the human liaison to the wizards council attempting to find out what they are really up to, and t [...]

    27. It s tough to rate a book like this My ultimate test iswould I recommend this to someone I know And yeah, I would I can think of a few people who would enjoy the political philosophical tone but I d recommend it with a caveat or two, depending on the person For that reason, I m giving WIZARDS RISING THE CATACLYSM a solid 4 stars I m not normally a fan of High Fantasy or Political Fiction However, I like mashups and this one caught my interest right off I ll be totally superficial and admit that [...]

    28. The Deadly Wizard Games was an interesting read for me Not so much that it was about wizards and magic not my usual favourite but because it provoked some thoughtsabout world politics and order Essentially it is a tale of four wizards, Indie, Demus, Regi, and Justica which are selected to lead the North America continent on Liberation day This is after nuclear destruction of major cities in SE Asia and the feeling that man has messed things up enough These wizards choose Amanda Fullerton, an as [...]

    29. The U.S presidency is shrouded in scandal The world economy is in depression, and India and Pakistan are on the brink of a nuclear exchange In the midst of the crisis four young adults materialize in the Oval Office and announce, We are the Liberators Thus begins Scot Spotson s fantasy, The Four Kings This 492 page epic novel is about a race of wizards taking over our world to implement needed changes From the Mortals that s us they choose Amanda Fullerton as their Supreme Liaison A committee of [...]
