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.

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.
