Venture

Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series)

Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series) The mournful hoot of an owl sounded from somewhere in the distance. Inside the darkened bedroom, all was still. Silence permeated the air. The ivory laced curtains, every now and then, fluttered, as a calm breeze wafted in from the half-open window. The curtain’s slight movement lengthened and… Continue reading Venture (Book Two of The Crystal Series)

Harmony (Book Three of The Crystal Series)

Harmony (Book Three of The Crystal Series) Rhea, mother of all gods, defender of the earth, watched, listened and plotted.
