"Oz Will Fall: The Royal Marriage by John Malone and Nicole Delgado is a well-imagined and beautifully written fantasy that thrusts the reader into a world of magic, a world with its own rules. Oz was once subjugated to fear and terror by the evil sisters, the Wicked Witches of the East, until Dorothy Gale arrived and changed all of that. She leads the defeat of the evil witches. Now, Oz knows peace and magic is properly regulated under a conscientious Queen. Dorothy is the Princess, but she still needs to complete the cycle of the journey that would make her the kind of princess worthy of Oz --she has to unlock the powers of the ruby slippers. But things take a sudden turn and Oz is faced with a new threat, one that is more devastating than anything Oz has ever known. There is an evil lurking in the dark, bent on destroying everything that signifies the glory of Oz after ripping Dorothy apart. Can she survive this time and can she discover the secret of vanquishing this evil before it destroys her world?
John Malone and Nicole Delgado have crafted a yarn that pulls readers away from their daily life and thrusts them into an exciting world of conflict. The authors have a gift for creating powerful conflicts and characters that inspire a strong sense of empathy in readers. Again, the authors take the primordial conflict of good vs evil and transform it into a force that arouses a lot of interest and excitement in readers as they follow the memorable characters on their journey along a perilous path. The setting, though imaginary, is well-crafted, colorful, and easy to imagine. Oz Will Fall: The Royal Marriage features great writing, a gripping plot, and characters readers will root for. It's a gem for fans of fantasy."

"Oz Will Fall: The Royal Marriage by authors John Malone and Nicole Delgado is a wonderfully imaginative but fantastical story which follows on from the renowned classic by Frank Baum. The book initially caught my attention because of my childhood love of the Wizard of Oz. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this story as it takes the original themes, and some of the characters we know and love, and twists them, giving the colourful land of Oz more of a darker edge - such as a red brick road and new characters that bring the story to life. The story will certainly appeal to those who love a good fantasy, as well as those who want to read a different and progressive version of the classic story.
What will really appeal to fantasy lovers is the way the authors, John Malone and Nicole Delgado, introduce new concepts and themes that we hadn't really seen or read before in the classic, whilst keeping true to the original themes and characters as well. Oz Will Fall: The Royal Marriage is certainly a different take on the story, but what readers will love is that it brings the original classic into a new era. The entire story modernizes the adventure fantasy with more intense romance, tension and enchantment that will keep readers turning pages, hooked until the very end. The book is written in first person format, each chapter taking various characters, and at first, I wasn't sure this would work. However, as a reader this style drew me into the story, taking me into each character's mindset, and ultimately helped engage me further into the story. I congratulate the authors on a great story and recommend this book!"
