The Sword of Oblivion – A Fantasy Book Series – A Map of Gryphon Island

The map of Gryphon Island is a very detailed and beautiful map and it sits well within the fantasy book series of The Sword of Oblivion. kids, young adults and adults and any other lovers of fantasy book series will have praise for the map for its fine detail and accuracy of the book. From North to South and East to West every bit of Gryphon Island is covered with one race or another so let’s get started.

North of the island

This is where the mountain range of the Ferrals lays, within the Ferral Mountains is Ironclad the Dwarfen Kingdom. Ironclad is located towards the eastern edge of the Ferral Mountain range. The kingdom itself is carved out of the mountain, with fifty-foot high steel doors embedded into the rock face. With carvings of King Crackzull himself the dwarfen king. Inside the mountain is a city, home to the entire dwarfen race and further back within the vast cavern is the Royal Palace. Fantasy book series lovers especially children like Ironclad, as its a hustling, bustling city. Packed full of grumpy dwarfs, who like their food and also have a fondness of fighting.

Also a little to the west sits Barren Rock home to Sinnat, Torms, Nakie and Sacul the four main dwarfs within the fantasy book series. They have a small dwelling, a workshop and a mine which they all inherited at a very early age. Not because of their parents dying but because they had decided it was time; that they stood on their own two feet “make a dwarf out of them” so to speak. Even though Sacul was still in nappies.

Center of the island

This is where the elven Kingdon lies within the Emerald Forest. Which outlines the borders of the Elven Kingdom. At the centre of the forest lies The Great Tree home of the Elven King, King Pholanthion. The Great Tree is a quarter of a mile round; on each of its branches, there are high platforms which house libraries, banquet halls, study rooms, classrooms, and everything else associated with the graceful lives of the elves. As you go higher up the tree; the nobler you were. Until you arrive at the throne room at the top of the tree. Beyond that stood the royal chambers containing The Great Hall, where meetings of the Elven Kingdom took place. The elves sit very well within this fantasy book series as they are the common enemy of the dwarfs.

South of the Island

Is where the Warlords ruled, the warlords were divided into four provinces. The First Province was owned by Strangaurd, who was a broad muscular man standing seven feet tall. He was a cruel and merciless ruler; his province was mainly wasteland and marshes, what little it did produce was from farm stock. He squeezed every penny out of the farmers who worked his land. If they didn’t pay, he would kill them and hand the land over to somebody else who could make him money. He spent most of his time sat within Castle Attin, scheming all day.

The Second Province was owned by Two’Bit. He was a short, fat, chubby man who would sell his own grandmother. But he couldn’t because he had already sold her when he was seven for two bit’s, and that is how he got his name, ever since that day the name stuck. He didn’t mind; in fact, he liked it. Being born into a market-trading province, the name Two’Bit had quite a good ring to it, and it helped when he was trying to do deals. If he could sell his own grandmother for two bit’s what else was he willing to sell. Fantasy book series readers find Two’Bit their favourite out of all the warlords.

The Third Province was owned by Zelton; he was sturdy looking, even for a warlord. He had chiselled features with a square jaw. His province wasn’t as large as the first two provinces, but it had a good fishing port, Zelton ruled his province with a fair hand.

The Fourth Province was owned by Wykep. This was the smallest province of them all. Nothing of interest happened here. Wykep was tall, with handsome features, and very rich. His subjects paid their taxes and were left alone, his province was a trading port. If you were rich in any of the other provinces, you would try and buy your way into the Fourth Province.

West of the Island

Was The Island of Black Rock and sat upon Black Rock was The Dark Fortress, surrounded by the harsh waters of the Black Ocean, this is where the sorcerers ruled.

No one knows how the ocean got the name of Black; some say it was because of the dark mystical creatures that lurked below. Others say if you swim in its black icy waters it will wash away your soul. However, swimming in it probably would take your soul due to the powerful currents. But if the truth were to be known, it was down to an old and ancient sorcerer only referred in old ancient texts as X, deep down within the long-forgotten section of the library within The Dark Fortress. X was one off the first sorcerers to step foot on the island, and when he did, he turned its shores deadly black and icy cold to keep out unwanted visitors, or as he put it; mindless time-wasting peasants. Fantasy book series readers especially like the sorcerers and one in partially Meltoy, but if you really like your sorcerers evil then look no further than Rathall.


The Sword of Oblivion – Book 3 – “It’s War” – Fantasy book for Children, and Young Adults fantasy book

The Sword of Oblivion just keeps on delivering especially in book 3, the final fantasy book in the trilogy. Which has yet again proven to be one of the best and top books for children and young adults. Children and young adult fantasy book lovers are snapping up their copies to see how the story ends and they will not be disappointed; as this great fantasy trilogy book draws to an end.


Now that Rathall the traitorous sorcerer and the warlord Strangaurd have stolen The Sword of Oblivion from the dwarfs, they’re preparing the takeover of Gryphon Island and every race upon it.

But the sword wasn’t the only thing to be stolen; so was Sacul, who is now a prisoner within castle Attin. But all is not lost, as Torms heads out with a small group to recuse him. Leaving Tennant in charge, who now has the pleasure of telling king Crackzull the sword is missing. Which isn’t easy when he’s just turned up to the makeshift fort with what looks like the entire dwarfen race.

King Crackzull has even emptied the prison cells of the most despicable dwarfs imaginable that go by the name of ‘The Band of undesirables.’ Much to the horror of Tenants, as he was the one who had put them away in the first place.

The third and final book in this excellent children’s fantasy book series is when everything comes to a head and just like the titles says “It’s War” but is it really what the inhabitants of Gryphon Island really want?

Not taking into account the Dwarfs they would go to war just about over anything. If it’s one thing a dwarf likes and that’s a good old fashioned punch up and if that said dwarf just happens to have an axe in his hand at the time and standing in the middle of a battlefield; then that’s a bonus. Also in this third and final instalment, you get to meet “The Band of undesirable” something that all lovers of fantasy books will love. They’re ruthless and that’s putting it mildly there isn’t anything or anyone they wouldn’t take on or take care of. That is until they come across Nakie and then they soon realise that they still have a lot to learn when it comes to installing pain on a victim as he gives them a live demonstration on a very unsuspecting and unlucky warrior.

Inevitable one thing leads to another thing and as each and every race descends upon the battlefield; with each and every one of them with a different agenda, it does only lead to one thing and one thing only its time for WAR.

This book has been hailed as a breath of fresh air within the fantasy world. Adult fantasy book lovers are starting to love the book as well and have started to realise its just not a children’s fantasy book or a young adult fantasy book, but just a brilliant book.

So then will there be more to come is the answer everyone wants to know? well then, you’re going to have to just wait and see…

The Sword of Oblivion – Book 2 – “The Find” – Best Children’s fantasy book, and Young Adult fantasy book

The sword of Oblivion is now a very popular fantasy book series for children and young adults. Grim the author has not only created a very funny and hilarious book. He has also created very funny characters along with it, which has proven a hit with lovers of fantasy books everywhere. The book series is even being picked up by adult lovers of fantasy, and one, in particular, Terry Pratchett. If you like Terry Pratchett’s books then you will love these books as well. Below is the Blurb for the second book in the series “The Find.”


Torms and his fellow dwarfs have arrived at the base of Brocken mountains. To mine the once forgotten mine of Rancore a very powerful warlord that once ruled the island. Hoping to find Amberinth, an ancient mineral of the Gods.

After a few setbacks along the way, they are heading for even more, as the mine turns out to be something completely different. With their only means of deciphering what lays ahead, is in a book called Myths & Legends.

Meanwhile, everyone is still spying on each other. The elves are spying on the dwarfs, the sorcerers are spying on everyone, and the warlords are trying to start a war. 

However, the elves have a traitor amongst them, and it doesn’t take the sorcerer Rathall. One of the Masters of The Dark Fortress, to long take full advantage of the situation.

The second book is when the Sword is found “and I’m not giving anything away as you can see this by the cover.” The book is fast paced and starts to bring all the stories of the different races together, the Dwarfs, elves, sorcerers and the warlords. Even though the book is funny at almost every turn it does start to pull in the children and young adult readers into the fantasy book. It starts to make them wonder what will happen next and what the possible outcome will be, with its brilliant and well-written storyline.

However, it soon returns to poor old Tennant the dwarfen advisor still getting a quick boot up the rear, or Nakie who is still hell-bent on eating everything and anything put before him. But it also brings out some of the other characters that have been overshadowed or hidden until now. Like Ripper, Sniffer and Picker, who are all part of the Royal mining crew.

Sniffer is proving to be a firm favourite with the young adults as he pretty much has a carefree approach to life. Just throw him into a tunnel or mine to clear with his home-made contraption sat upon his head and his trusty huge wooden crossbow slung over his shoulder; he’s happy. Well, as happy as a dwarf could be setting off into the unknown when that unknown could entail a tribe of tunnel trolls or poisonous gases. And it’s quite safe to say Sniffers don’t really last long but there always seems to be another dwarf ready and waiting to fill his boots “Literally” that’s if they can find them.

So, if you’re a lover of fantasy books and want to read one of the best and newsiest fantasy books on the market or if you know a child or young adult that does, at least now you know which new set of books to now buy.

The Sword of Oblivion – Book 1 – “Could it be?” – Top 10 best selling Children’s / young adult Fantasy book.

The Sword of Oblivion is a best-selling children’s and teenagers fantasy book. But once the adults start reading it, I will guarantee they will not put the book down, as it will have anyone who reads it laughing out loud from start to finish. Book 1 is called “Could it be” the story centers around Torms and his fellow dwarfs. 

Below is the Blurb form the first book “Could it be”.


Torms and his fellow dwarfs find the location of a long-forgotten mineral called Amberinth, which is believed to be the ancient mineral of the Gods. At this discovery, they set off to Ironclad, the Dwarfen Kingdom, to seek an audience with the king and to ask for a royal mining party. 

 But they soon hit a few setbacks along the way, mainly in the form of Tennant; a very annoying, skinny dwarfen advisor who obsessively lives his life by the legendary book: ‘101 Golden Rules on How to Stay Alive as an Advisor.’

 So, with only a hand full of The Blood Born Guards, a royal mining party, two personal bodyguards the size of a small-mountain; Bash’m, and Beat’m, the advisor and an old philosopher who makes the best omelettes in the kingdom they begin their expedition. 

They think they’re the only ones that know about it, maybe they should think again…

The book when released was in the top 10 children’s books on Amazon, iBook, eBooks and kindle; it also appears under teenager fantasy books and young adult books. 

The map of Gryphon islands shows you the different realms and races upon the island; you have Ironclad the Dwarfen Kingdom set within the mountain range of the Ferral Mountains. Then there’s The Great Tree within the Emerald forest which is the elven Kingdom lies then you have The Dark Fortress with its six towers for its six Masters sat upon The Island of Black Rock. You also have four Warlords that live within the four provinces. 

The children’s fantasy book has it all sorcerers, dwarfs, elves, warlords; there’s even a mountain troll dog called Gypsy. As you work your way through the fantasy book, you will start to relate to some of the characters within. Be it Nakie who fights like a wild animal and eats like one too, to Tennant, the dwarfen advisor to the King, who has to have everything in order and just the way he likes it. There’s even an omelettemaking philosopher who has many a wise for Torms, who is finding it isn’t easy being in charge. 

However, Bash’m, and Beat’m Torms personally assigned bodyguards have to be my favorites. The children’s book and teenagers fantasy book, covers every humorous topic imageable, and that’s why it stayed at the top 10 ten children’s books on Amazon. 

The only way to describe this book is if you like Terry Pratchett or Harry Potter then you will love this book. If you could combine the Witt of Terry Pratchett and magic of Harry Potter into one fantasy book, then this would be the fantasy book you were left with.
