Tales of the Crystal - Book One
An epic tale of magic and warriors, but more importantly, of flawed human beings overcoming adversity and personal demons to do what must be done.
The crystal, center of civilization, is under magical attack from unknown forces. Crystal Warriors, scattered to the ends of the land by the devastation of the last battle years before are recalled, but they must traverse vast distances against mystical forces not seen for centuries. Can they overcome these forces and their personal demons to return in time to save the Crystal?
• Tarina, known as Awiel of the Dance, a sexy and talented Veil Dancer and Crystal Seeress, must traverse the southern desert through a treacherous maze of canyons and bandits.
• Naomi - a fierce warrior woman who will remain speechless until she finds the man who brutalized her and killed the Crystal Seeress mistress she was sworn to protect.
• Rowan, former Captain of the Crystal Warrior Elite, in the guise of an old woodsman, must be convinced to return from his self-imposed exile.
• Macon, a besotted drunkard, must pull himself together to become the powerful Crystal Warrior he once was.
Many others, some of whom are much more than they seem, must overcome tremendous odds and long distances.
***** I love these characters! What makes this a fun read is the slightly flawed good guys, the babes with beauty, brains and brawn, and the magical characters Thisrena and Ith, the thnake that speaks with a lithp. Recommended reading. ·· J.D. King
**** I was intrigued with the story from the very beginning. . . R.L. Kiser has written chapter one so deftly to reel in readers' curiosity to keep reading. Characterization is superb; both heroes and villains have flaws which also lead to humorous moments. . . the way the plot is developed is fresh, coupled with unpredictable and interesting twists. Kiser's flawless writing style helps keep the plot tight throughout the story as well as maintain a good pacing. On the whole, a satisfying read and a great start for a series. ·· Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite
**** This is a good story, full of magic and some very surprising characters and twists... Charming and mysterious characters, magical creatures, and not-so-perfect foes make this a fun read. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads
