Coming into her power in adulthood, Crystalyn activates a curtain of darkness between a pair of sapphire obelisks with a travel symbol. Her younger sister Jade, the one person she cares most about having raised since their mother’s disappearance, touches the gateway and vanishes. Crystalyn follows, developing her strength in a land where strife, warfare, and magic use are rampant.
The search for Jade grows ever desperate as Crystalyn learns each use of magic is killing her, her mind deteriorating. Though a political Circle of Light made up of mystic users, a Dark Citadel of warlords, and a Hundred Season war block the way; she must go on.
Time is fast flowing away from both her and Jade; with far more at stake than they both realize.
R.V. Johnson grew up in USA, Utah wandering through beautiful tranquil forests, exploring the unique alien-like setting of the red rock desert, and climbing the rugged trails of the high Uinta Mountains where mountain goats roam. Indoors, he read from his large library or wrote in his journal.
One can now find him writing and reading outside.
