Crystal Shade: Angeni, Volume 1 (Recent thread update; March 4, 2012)
By István Szabó, Ifj. & Orlanda Szabo
Length: 147739 words (Digital Edition) / 350 pages (Paperback)
ISBN: 978-963-08-2683-9 (Kindle), 978-963-08-2684-6 (EPub), 978-963-08-2685-3 (LIT), 978-963-08-2686-0 (PDF), 978-963-08-2687-7 (Paperback)

“Thousands of stars could tell thousands of stories.”

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 says, 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 to the eternal question; what the legendary Crystal Shade really is.

"This is not your everyday Fantasy novel." - Smashwords Review
"This book is a change from everything I've read recently. The story itself unfolds more gently, the action moving at a slower pace most of the time. The writing is beautiful. Elegant, even." - Rebecca McKinnon, Goodreads Review
"Beautiful writing. A story line that is well thought out." - David Allan, Tumbling Books
