"Fantastic fantasy romance"

Sianna the healer resides on the world of Tareth. Her father is First Master a position that he has usurped the power of the king. He plans to rule through his daughter by having her marry the puppet king's son. Sianna doesn't know her father because she was sent to the Sisters of the Light boarding school that teaches a person the art of healing. One night Katya kidnaps Sianna, bringing her as a captive to her brother Kyne's castle.

Kyne is a rebel leader who plans to use Sianna to bring hier father down. He despises his prisoner because he falsely believes Sianna is responsible for having his brother killed. Sianna insinuates herself into the working of the castle, saving lives and making it run smoothly. The more Kyne observes her, the more he realizes that she is innocent. He begins to have feelings for her but tries to contain them because the blood of her father flows in her veins. It takes a near tragedy for Kyne to realize that love is more important than revenge.

Fans of sword and sorcery romances will want to read CRYSTAL MOON, a novel that takes place in a world much like Earth's medieval England. The characters are three- dimensional and endearing and the action packed story line enthralls the audience with its exciting and unexpected twists and turns. Elysa Hendricks uses words to make a whole planet come alive in the reader's imagination.

On Tareth, the small country of Dramon is in the throes of a rebellion. When Sianna DiSanti is called home from the semi-religious order where her father has hidden her since birth, she is eager to know her estranged father and become part of a loving family. His plan to use her as a marriage pawn in his quest for power devastates her. While seeking comfort in the garden, she is mistaken for her half-sister and abducted by her father's enemies.

Kyne Cathor lusts for vengeance against DiSanti, the man who murdered his brother and threw Dramon into turmoil. To draw DiSanti into the open and restore the country to peace, Kyne uses Sianna as bait. Though she proclaims her innocence, Kyne believes she might be pregnant with his brother's child. To keep her half-sister safe and protect herself, Sianna conceals her true identity.

Once at the rebel stronghold, Sianna's gentle, innocent, nature and heroic actions fuel Kyne's growing attraction to a woman he can never have and puts them both in jeopardy.
