THE CRYSTAL ROSE
By Ruth Karas
So who doesn’t like dragons, a wise old sorcerer, a hidden prince, and a girl?
“The Crystal Rose” is both fun and tender. It is a story of a mother’s love for her son, a father’s dreams for his daughter, and the sorcerer who raises, teaches, and loves them both. There is heartache, found love, legends, and friendship.
Ms. Karas has spun a tale that fits any age. Her simplistic telling makes for an easy read that still paints a clear picture of her adventure.
Any negatives would be I would love to visit the Dragons’ homeland…okay not really a negative. I didn’t quite enjoy the passing of the years, wasn’t too clear on this happening.
“The Crystal Rose” will not disappoint and a charming addition to a family library.
