In The Disenchanted Wizard (Grimhilderness Book 3) by Mike Crowl, Della is having a typical day. She is dreaming of meeting her favorite footballer, Xanadu Whitworth, whose posters cover every inch of her bedroom wall. She herself is an enthusiastic soccer player and in fact, is getting ready to go play ball. Her father Archie had just given her a new, much larger poster of Xanadu Whitworth just as he begins to prepare tea before they go. Enter her younger cousin Harold, a map enthusiast. When he shows his newest map, a really old one, to Della, scary events start to happen and soon Della’s father leaves on a mysterious errand. And so begin the magical adventures. Will Della and Harold find out where Della’s father went and will they be able to stay out of danger themselves?

Mike Crowl skillfully moves the story in The Disenchanted Wizard along at a quick pace. He has written about this world before, so there is little chance for us to lose our way in this story. As we are shown how Della, her father, and her cousin Harold interact, we discover a lot about their personalities and relationships without being told by the author. They annoy each other but their affection for each other cannot be mistaken. Also, those of you who love magical adventures rooted in your own world will love this book, and if this is your introduction to the Grimhilderness books, there are Books 1 and 2! A fun adventure for all.
