CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI # 9

THE RISK…

Her dreams of the present’s past push Angeni to fight for the future truth that only she can see of who is to rule. There is more at risk than human souls.

 

Angeni has to go against all she has been taught. The beliefs passed down by the elders and the little changes to delve into the past.
By then it was too late, she had dared to allow humans to take up arms and enter into battle. 

A sacred trust broken that not even her mother,
High-Guardian Eve could condone.
 

~EXCERPT~ 

Among the white dunes, brave winged warriors, evil demons, and humans in their shiny armor battled desperately with their crystal weapons to challenge death itself. The old man could still see the eyes of the fallen that knew they had no chance for survival, but were determined to die with courage for something in which they believed. Dignity filled their eyes, even in their last moments seeing the blade of death before it struck them down. But they never failed to bravely face their destiny.

Will Angeni’s path rip apart all that is dear to her?
Make her one against many?
Or allow her to put the pieces back together to usher in an era of clarity between human and Aserian? 

Even as her doubt builds, the Aserian Guardian Angel,
warrior and protector of Eecrys Aredia
 does not know. 

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 4

Another sneak peek review. This one is by Shana at Book Vacations. Thank you, Shana for your wonderfully crafted words.

Be sure to stop in at Shana’s blog at:  http://bookvacations.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/sneak-peek-crystal-shade-angeni-by-istvan-szabo-volume-1/

Synopsis: 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 the 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 say, 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 for the eternal question: what the legendary Crystal Shade really is.

 

Istvan Szabo was extremely gracious in allowing me a sneak peek of his upcoming novel, Crystal Shade, co-authored by Orlanda Szabo, and I must say, I’m very interested. 

The novel opens with an elderly man reminiscing about his past, thinking of the past wars and the crystals that have come to mean so much to him.  He seems to live very much in his past, speaking aloud to his memories, and one, about the a beautiful girl, especially haunts him.  He is interrupted in his musing by two young children, children that remind him of someone he knew long ago, and, after a little coaxing, he begins to tell them the story of Grace and the Crystal Shade.   

The story he begins to tell is extremely interesting, and I found myself captivated by the world Szabo creates in his novel.  It is a unique world complete with a sapphire sun, winged guardians, goddesses, and even mechanical birds as transportation.  Though I was only allowed to read the first 70 pages or so of the first volume, the novel really whet my appetite for more, and I am excitedly awaiting the release of the full novel on November 11, 2011.

CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI #5

THE THREAT…

 ~EXCERPT~

 Majestic golden and silver eagle shaped craft appeared in the bright blue sky to fly in formation under the beautiful brilliance of the sapphire sun, its eternal glow reflected from their metal bodies and sectioned wings. The craft dove into battle against hideous dark flying creatures. Like dozens of sleek predatory birds, they fought against the evil web-winged enemies. Hunted down one by one, the metal bird craft were ripped to pieces and their wrecks left to explode in the hot white sands…

…where another battle raged…

Among the white dunes, brave winged warriors and humans in their shiny armor battled desperately with their crystal weapons against the Reapers of Darkness. The old man could still see the eyes of the fallen that knew they had no chance for survival, but were determined to die with courage. Dignity filled their eyes, even in their last moments seeing the blade of death before it struck them down. They never surrendered, forcing their demonic enemies to fight for every inch of their land. They knew to retreat or beg for mercy meant undignified death. They were doomed, and yet they never failed to face their destiny.

Hidden between the light and the shadows there is more at stake

than human souls…

CRYSTAL SHADE: ANGENI #4

THE DECEPTION…

Angeni prepares to serve and guide the humans. But there is a prophesy in which an Aserian warrior, much like herself, is to stop the Crystal Shade from arriving on their world to ensure the continuance of the Aserian’s hidden co-existence and peaceful guidance over the human race. 

Her final test and the discovery of her true self, an unusual spirit, she is given charge of an equal soul from the royal house in the belief that only together can they deflect what is to come.
