The first Crystal Shade: Angeni review in its entirety!

Crystal Shade: Angeni is an upcoming epic fantasy novel by István Szabó, Ifj., co-written by Orlanda Szabo. I was given the chance to preview the first seventy pages of the text, and what I found is an intriguing world with many layers that promise to be unfolded over the course of three novels, the first due out in November. From the little I read, I can say that the author has a very descriptive style, with scenes and images springing to life on every page. The pacing early on is rather slow, so it remains to be seen just how long or how action-packed the final product will be, but early signs are promising.

The following is the current official blurb for the upcoming novel, and you can visit the author’s rather fancy, even futuristic, website at:

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 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 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.
