About the Author
Stephen J. Wolf earned his PhD in science education in 2006, and has worked as a middle school science teacher since 2001. His passion for chemistry and physics was inspired by watching Mr. Wizard’s World as a child, and learning that many of life’s biggest and most fascinating mysteries could be explained through science.
When he isn’t helping his students discover logic and wonder in the classroom, Wolf enjoys spending time with his partner Kevin, and watching Doctor Who with their two cats, Merlin and Monty. Wolf currently resides in New York, and you can visit him online at http://www.StephenJWolf.com/.Books by Stephen J. Wolf:

There were a few things that kept me from enjoying the book more than I did. Probably the biggest thing was the point of view (POV) from which it was written. The story uses the difficult-to-use-well omniscient POV and the head jumping occurs so rapidly at times that it becomes confusing. Even worse, it jolted me out of my immersion in the story and made me realize I was reading, not experiencing the story through the characters themselves. There were some troublesome inconsistencies in the characters’ personalities and in some of the situations that occurred in the story as well. Overall, if you are looking for an entertaining read that brings you back to classic fantasy, and more specifically RPG gaming, tropes, check out Journeys in Kallisor.
This book had me hooked from the very beginning. While the names of the places and the people seemed confusing at first, they became as familiar to me as my own town and family as I continued to read. A loose comparison for Journeys in Kallisor would be a combination of The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. The author incorporates magic and physical strength, as well as emotional perseverance and the elements of the earth to tell an amazing story. He uses each character's strengths to the advantage of the group and uses their weaknesses to show how they each learn and grow. The author does an incredible job of illustrating the power of friendship as well as the power of love. I would recommend this book to any age group and I cannot wait for the journey to continue in the next book!
