The Great Wizard Wars
by Christina Clarry

In the far distant past, two mighty forces clashed in the first Great Wizard War.
It was a battle of good against evil!
A Golden Army against a Dark Army!

The Great Wizard Wars is an exciting tale of the wars between good and evil armies of wizards and witches, which is ideal for fans of fantasy stories aged 7-11 years. Modern wizards and witches are leading extraordinary lives, going about their day-to-day business in a peaceful manner, hidden from the rest of the world. Breaking the ancient truce that was reached after the first war, a Dark Army rises once again, intent on destroying these descendants of its old foe.

The backward, outrageous, evil wizards and witches launch their attack with outmoded weapons and mystical creatures that they cannot control while they fight amongst themselves for power in a frankly mind-boggling manner. As good and evil forces clash once again, four young wizards and witches find themselves in perilous situations. In a twist of fate they are forced into an unexpected showdown.

Written in a style reflective of Roald Dahl, Christina Clarry’s writing is brimming with gross humour, from the revolting smell of the characters to their foul and wacky habits. Full of ferocious dragons, unpredictable zilants and a zany snake, The Great Wizard Wars is sure to capture the imagination of young readers looking for an exciting and humorous fantasy story.

  • Review This Book

I was delighted with the invitation to talk on the Book Show, a programme on Talk Radio Europe, about my book, THE GREAT WIZARD WARS, which went on air on 16 February 2017. I also had the opportunity to discuss a new children's book that will be illustrated and written jointly with a talented young writer. It is a simpler rhyming version of The Great Wizard Wars! Fun and exciting!

Feedback about my book from children has been delightful. They have found it 'fun', 'entertaining', 'interesting', and 'loved it'.

All I could wish for! My aim was for them to read enjoyably with a feel-good factor and come away asking for more. So a sequel is underway!

THAT"S BOOKS review of my book on the blog THAT's CHRISTMAS by Simon S was hilarious! Again all I could wish for.

A really enjoyable read – I would recommend this book for younger children (younger than 12 years), and their parents!
The author combines the modern world with a magical world of witches, wizards and mythical and magical creatures. This combination truly opens up the imagination to endless possibilities, with lots of interesting characters throughout the book. With a wicked sense of humour and plot twists, the book entertains from the first page to the last.
Really looking forward to the next instalment to read more about the exciting adventures of the four witches and wizards and their magical friends!

As I don`t usually read this type of story it took me a few pages to imagine the setting. However, once I got into it, I fully understood and found it difficult to put down.

I read this book before giving it to my 7yr old grand daughter and thought it was very enjoyable and am sure my grandchildren will enjoy the book too. I loved the relationship that formed between the baby dragon and the 'feisty four' children. The book had humour, sensitivity and imagination which will appeal to all children.

by Rena Williams


An enjoyable fantasy which was a pleasure to read, with characters that are believable and engaging. The baddie Cryptor is so vile he makes you want to hiss or boo when his character is to the fore of the plot. Fango, the little dragon, is adorable and will appeal to all children from nine to ninety nine. As with all good tales, good usually prevails.

Julia Rose (7) was given this book as a gift whilst on holiday in Guernsey and had the pleasure of meeting the author herself! This spurred her on to read the book herself rather than having it read to her. Her giggles and gasps spoke to an engaging read filled with heroes and heroines she could look up to, villains she clearly despised, and a baby dragon to long for. A highly recommended read!

by Jen Taylor


Christina's fantasy story of wizards and witches is a book for all ages. Even though it felt like a spin off from Harry Potter, her creativity and imagination keeps the reader wanting more. With the craziness of characters you find yourself rolling in laughter especially with Ghnashers - the giant snake. I am saving this book to read to my son who is Autistic in hopes he will enjoy it as much.

by Jennifer Bowers


A fun read that kids who love Roald Dahl and adults who grew up reading him will love.
