QUICK REVIEW: "Birth of a Wizard" - by MJ Schutte

by MJ Schutte

REVIEWED BY: Books4Tomorrow


A new world is discovered in Birth of a Wizard, book II of the Energy Chronicles.
Brighton and Lilian, along with their children and two dear friends have crossed the western boundary in search of a new life.
Just as it seems they will finally settle down, tragedy strikes and Brighton is forced to use his gift in order to save his loved ones.
Brighton’s actions earn him an unwanted reputation and cause ripple effects that will haunt them in years to come.
Is Lilian strong enough to find her way back to Brighton?
Will Brighton survive the repercussions of his actions?


Since I finished “Energy”, the first book in this series, I couldn’t wait for the next book to be released. Now that I’ve finished reading “Birth of a Wizard”, I’m once again in awe of this author’s remarkable ability to take the reader on an extraordinary adventure that will have you feeling as though you were part of something big.

“Birth of a Wizard” is the second book in the Energy Chronicles, and it leaves no room for disappointment. It picks up where it left off in “Energy”, the first book in this series. Again, as in the first book, this is a fast-paced epic fantasy adventure that catapults the reader into a beautiful world created by the author in which to escort the reader on an unforgettable journey into the lives of Brighton and Lilian and their companions.

Prepare to have yourself pushed across the boundaries of your imagination in a story full of unexpected twists, hold-your-breath suspense; and falling in love with characters that will stay in your mind long after you’ve finished the book.  Exciting new characters are also introduced in this instalment of the Energy Chronicles, such as elves and the moon people. Mischief, the beloved black panther from the first book in this series, makes his reappearance in “Birth of a Wizard”, to add to the butt-kicking action this author writes so well.

MJ Schutte paints his characters realistically and passionately. You’ll easily laugh, cry, smile and cheer along with them, just as much as your heart will break at their loss. This magnificently written book will leave you breathless in anticipation of the last book in this trilogy. Here is one exciting journey you don’t want to miss out on. Whether you’re a fan of this genre or not, I can assure you, you will find something in this story that will appeal to your taste. I highly recommend this magical read to young and old alike. It will leave you wanting more!
