    Youthful Fantasy

    The Crystal Prince
    Jeanette Clinger Hurley

    Long ago King Xithius had 2 sons and bestowed upon the youngest, Xanthian,the reigns of the kingdom, while the eldest Ganthian held a revolt against his brother. Evil turned Ganthian and his followers into trolls and they were cast out far away from the kingdom.
    Years later the Ganthites return to capture and kidnap a decendant of Xanthian, Xabian.
    Xabian was born with a hole in his heart and required special gems near him at all times to mend his heart. His friend Jenevieve falls into a coma when Xabian is kidnapped and is able then to have her spirit visit him in the trolls care. She is able to bring him gems to heal his heart.
    Xabian being from the kingdom of kindness is able to show the trolls kindness and love, something they have not experienced.
    The golden rule is the theme of this novel, Treat others how you would like to be treated.

    I would say this book is geared for the tween age group who enjoy fantasy fiction. There is nothing problematic with the book, nicely written and positive ending. Youngsters just venturing into the world of fantasy would do well with this novel to 'get their feet wet' in some of the imaginary creatures and elements in fantasy.
    I did struggle a bit with the time flow of the book as the prince left when he was 12, and when he returned he was quite a bit older and I hadn't caught on that years and years had passed.
    The drawings by BC Hailes definitely adds a charm to the novel, helping the reader to picture the story as it unfolds.
    I received a copy of this book from Media Guests in exchange for an honest review.

    Love is the Only Way

    The Crystal Prince is a book filled with color, imagination, and a wonderfully moral story. This book is categorized as Juvenile Fiction/Readers/Beginner. Every other page of the 70 pages is filled with colorful illustrations, so it is a good length for young readers. The names and some of the vocabulary may be difficult for very young readers (up to third grade) so I would recommend a parent reading with them to explain the words that are unfamiliar to the child.

    The story is a delightful tale of a kingdom where greed changes people on the outside as well as inside. Even better is the miracle wrought through the strength and power of love and faith. When Ganthian was denied the throne by his kingly father because of his selfishness and pride, he plotted with supporters to kill his younger brother, Xanthian. When the plot was foiled the attackers fled to the woods and became trolls, appearing as ugly on the outside as they were on the inside.

    One thousand years later they put in action a daring plan to take over the kingdom they had been denied. Trolls kidnapped the Prince and held him in their caves, preparing to turn him into one of their own.

    What happens to the prince and the trolls is nothing short of a miracle. This story is a wonderful message of love, charity and kindness. It's something that must be shared.

    I noticed three charities listed in the front of the book. Habitat for Humanity, Smile Train, and Pink Ribbon International are all great works that benefit many. The author is using this book to help them. So, if you enjoy the message of love, kindness and charity, the purchase of this book will give you a tender story and the chance to share with those in need.
