Review by: Lisa Harris on Feb. 28, 2017 :
This series seems to get better with each book. I'm amazed with how quickly Josephine can think on her feet in a dire situation going on instinct alone. I was disappointed when Alice chose to be cursed because it was not for the good of her. I am, however, happy with the end results. I love that Josephine was the bigger person and moved out of the retirement community and found a house that not only was cursed but accepted her as it's owner. This book has many plots that twists and turns and not expected at all. I kept waiting for it to be revealed that Mark was more than what his character proclaimed to be but he was as he said he was.

Review by: gabesgal on Oct. 12, 2016 :
I recently finished reading the eBook, Corruption, Grumpy Old Wizards, Book two of the series, by John O'Riley. This is a book of action, adventure, mind powers, and magic.

I loved how the author wrote each character. The story follows Josephine, and her two friends, Helen, and Alice.

Josephine, a category 6 wizard, gets talked into joining the police force full time by her friends, Helen and Alice.

Josephine, and her friends and family become targets of Lorcan a wizard of The Valituras. He turns Helen into a succubus, and Alice into a vampire. This makes for a lot of adventure, action, and the test of friendships.

The story ended and left me wanting to know more about what is going to happen in the characters lives.

Once I began reading the book the first day I didn't want to put it down, and it was a really good read.

Full Disclosure: I received this product for a discounted price, however I am under no obligation to review or mention this book in my social media pages or blogs. I am solely providing this review to let others know of the these really cool lights. This is my opinion and mine alone.
