ANGENI WITH MARS ROVER

What a thrill!

What action!

After 8 long years of preparation, the Mars rover has landed! But it’s not alone.

Most of you know of Crystal Shade: Angeni, the epic fantasy book Istvan Szabo and I co-wrote. Well our guardian angel’s name, Angeni has landed on Mars with the Rover.

Her previous experience has been in travelling with the last two space shuttles to the space station before the shuttles were decommissioned.

Our little Angeni has brought another vessel down safely.

At least, that is what I’d like to think.

THE CRYSTAL SHADE EVENT… 

…is not just a fading belief or ancient legend only she and a few others believe, but the name of the unavoidable end times.

~EXCERPT~ 

The shard’s polished surface mirrored the tired face of the old man who watched the device with endless respect. His eyes focused on the shadow of the sundial, which slowly crept around the crystal shard. The shadow didn’t come from the sun, which slept beyond the horizon as night stood silent sentry outside. It came from the shard itself. Even now, some of the orbs within the crystal’s untouchable dark shadow slowly changed color. 

As the Crystal Shade approaches, it will unleash demon hordes
on her peaceful world in a war to determine
which side will guide humans.

CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI #8

THE DEMON… 

…hereditary nemesis of Aserian and human alike.

He knows first blood will be on their hands,
and he thanks them for it. 

With or without cause, it doesn’t matter when one demon manipulates everyone to destroy the upper ranks so he moves to reach his goal. Not some random creature bent on destruction, but one who feels the breath of destiny upon his own future, he relishes and feeds indecision and doubt at every turn. 

“They never surrendered, forcing their demonic enemies to fight
for every inch of their land.” 

The first volume of Crystal Shade, Angeni will be available on November 11, 2011 via Smashwords, Amazon Kindle and other electronic platforms.
Volume 2 and 3 will be available in 2012.

CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI #7

CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI 

THE KNOWLEDGE…

 …slipping away with the old man’s memories that will complete his final and only remaining promise. 

~EXCERPT~ 

“Thousands of stars could tell thousands of stories,” whispered the old man with a gentle smile. “I hope others also see the story of our beautiful star.”

Decades creased the countenance of the weary old man. He propped himself at the balcony, the silky wind ruffling his grey hair. His aged eyes never tired of the stars that pierced the infinite night sky. But despite the enchanting skyscape, his soul, which desired endless peace, was restless. He had one final promise he had made ages ago still unfulfilled. To share the past with those living in the present. A long-held secret, a story to tell. Sorrow embraced him; he knew as the sun rose to greet a new day, one unheard story would pass along with him to vanish for eternity. And the time was close. 

“Thousands of energy orbs formed the mass of a majestic miniature galaxy under the tip of the long tapered crystal shard. Each star, a shiny orb, in this chrono device shone its story, its own truth in sapphire, orange, red, green, and purple orbs were just a few among countless colors without a known name. Clear and bright, the shard hovered untethered over the middle of this tiny world like some large mystical sundial.” 

“The miniature galaxy gracefully turned between the stalwart columns. His eyes focused on the shadow of the sundial, which slowly crept around the crystal shard. The shadow didn’t come from the sun, which slept beyond the horizon as night stood silent sentry outside. It came from the shard itself. Even now, some of the orbs within the crystal’s untouchable dark shadow slowly changed color.”

“The old man closed his eyes. He was still in the hall, but his mind was far away in a forgotten world.”

I will be with you. Always, whispered a kind female voice that flooded the old man with endless love, snapping him back to reality.”

“He sighed as he studied the crystal chrono device. One of the red orbs within the shard’s shadow suddenly changed to azure. The shadow of the crystal was forced away from that area. The old man’s fond smile returned.”

“You never rest, old friend. You never rest,” his soft voice addressed the crystal. “Our destiny ties us together. We will meet again. Soon.” 

The discovery of ancient scrolls aids Angeni’s hunt for the knowledge to solve the Crystal Shade event mystery.

Angeni understands even less of what she has become, but begins to recognize a parallel between then and now.  

The first volume of Crystal Shade, Angeni will be available on November 11, 2011 via Smashwords, Amazon Kindle and other electronic platforms.
Volume 2 and 3 will be available in 2012.

Crystal Shade Readers Speak 2

My first reader, Kathryn Dahlstrom, the author of Children of Angels, which is soon to be published, has written a wonderful review on the first 70 pages of Crystal Shade: Angeni.

Here is her review in its entirety.

Book Review: Crystal Shade: Angeni

 Crystal Shade: Angeni, by author and co-author Istvan Szabo lfj and Orlanda Szabo, is a highly imaginative and ambitious first volume of a science fiction/fantasy epic. I found the language beautiful and the descriptions evocative. It’s rife with the imagery and symbolism that fans of this genre love.At the novel’s beginning we meet Grace, a precocious and daydreaming 7-year-old who longs to be a Guardian Spirit for her planet’s people. Yet even as she dreams of having angel’s wings, she fears them. She’s haunted by strange dreams that warn her of a pending darkness–a cold evil. She foresees the death of her beloved family and the end of her own life. And why should a little girl see such visions? Unless she’s more than a little girl….Szabo and Szabo do an excellent job of creating a life that Grace loves, only to make its loss all the more poignant. Her human life has to end in order for her new life as the angel Angeni to begin. She must help her people overcome the devouring darkness that threatens her world and her own soul.

Crystal Shade: Angeni is a powerful and ethereal work and a masterful beginning of a great series.

Kathryn Dahlstrom, author, screenwriter and now producer, is the author of soon to be released, Children of Angels. Please visit Kathryn’s blog at: http://www.kathryndahlstrom.blogspot.com/
