Crystal Shade (Epic / YA ...
May 1, 2012
“Thousands of stars could tell thousands of stories.”
Seven year old Grace always dreamt of becoming a guardian angel; like those who guarded and guided her people and prepared to bravely fight in a dreaded mythical event, the Crystal Shade – which never came. It's not like Grace ever wanted to see Demons. Or wants to know what evil and darkness is – things that no one ever faced on her world and as the legends says, the Crystal Shade carries within –, nor does she want to die to be reborn as a guardian. But she thinks the mysterious life of angels is so noble, a fable that it sounds exciting – until it actually happens.
Crystal Shade: Angeni, Volume 1 explores the early life of a young daydreaming soul who is destined to reveal the forgotten past of her home world and to seek the answer to the eternal question; what the legendary Crystal Shade really is.

"This is not your everyday Fantasy novel."
"This book is a change from everything I've read recently. The story itself unfolds more gently, the action moving at a slower pace most of the time. The writing is beautiful. Elegant, even."
Rebecca McKinnon, The Crooked Word / Goodreads Review
"Beautiful writing. A story line that is well thought out."
David Allan, Tumbling Books Review
“Crystal Shade: Angeni, Volume 1 is beautifully written with detailed descriptions of both the people and the world they inhabit. An intriguing and complex fantasy novel which will leave you breathlessly anticipating the next Volume.”
Star, Bibliophilic Book Blog / Amazon US Review
“A detailed, descriptive and imaginative fantasy story.”
Krista Burnbright, Cubicle Blindness / Amazon US Review
“This was such an interesting story concept for me, I remember when I received the book for review, and I remember thinking to myself how is a story being told by a seven year old going to work. I mean even in the YA genre seven is a little young, I wondered if I was going to be able to identify with the character, and for me as a reader I need to be able to identify with the characters in the book. But the book is really so much more than I thought it was going to be.”
Kathryn S. Steves, UFR Reviews / Amazon US Review
“I enjoyed the storytelling aspect of the novel; storytelling fascinates me, and I like it when is shows up in novels. I assume that for the high fantasy genre, this is a solid novel. I think that people who like high fantasy more than I do and who have more experience with the genre than I do will really enjoy The Crystal Shade.”
