TheCrystalRose 200x300


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.
