    If you are looking for an epic battle of ¿good versus evil¿, lo

    If you are looking for an epic battle of “good versus evil”, look no further than your local book market. “The Crystal Needle” is unlike any other fantasy novel I have read. This book has all the parts I look for when seeking a new book for escape or a timeless tale: unique characters and creatures, myth, legend, malevolent pasts with uncertain futures, purpose-seeking adventures, powerful battles with good overcoming evil, love, and most importantly, magic. The creativity and convey ability of the author, Daniel Peyton, is remarkable. Who would have thought of two non-seemingly, powerful elders in a small New England community changing the course of history through their “hobby” of sewing? Obviously, Peyton did, but surely, not me. It sure makes me rethink the stereotype associated with little, elderly ladies and their stitching!
    I was intrigued by this story from the very beginning. Every character is completely relatable and has a purpose within the plot. I recommend this book to people of all ages. Its charm and easy-to-read format make for an extremely pleasant reading experience causing you to ache for the next one. To give you an idea, I started this book in the morning and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Peyton’s books and am anticipating the rest of the books in the tale of the crystal and obsidian needles.

    My Thoughts: I got a copy from Daniel Peyton to read and review,

    My Thoughts:
    I got a copy from Daniel Peyton to read and review, so first I thank him for giving me a chance to read it. :) I always love witchy magic books. The story has a cliffhanger but not a “Ahhh!” One. It finishes the main stuff and truthfully you could be content with just this one book. Daniel Peyton does set the ending up for there to be another. *Fingers Crossed*

    The Review:
    Joseph is one of the main characters. He is a nice guy who loves stitching, the title gives you a hint that the book might go around a needle, and it does. THe story and magic concept in this books is inventive, creative, and imaginative. By the end of the story you're wishing Joseph was a real person. Now the other main character, I can’t say her name because either one could ruin the story, well she is a strong yet shy character who’s easy to become your favorite character.
    For the first half of the book we get to hear Elsabethe’s story. Which leads up to the main issue in the book. Normally this drive me nuts, but something about the flashback story mode pulled me in. Then the next part of the book as Joeseph and Her falling in love followed by The Battle.
    Would I read more if there was more? Yep. :)

    This is a book that gets you hooked from the moment you start reading. Dan is a clever writer who brings you into his world and keeps you interested until the very end! The characters are rich and vibrant and you can almost hear the animals in the woods. Joseph will capture your heart as you join along in his struggle to to defeat Adelle.

    A great novel

    The Crystal Needle is not normally a book I would usually pick up out of the blue and read. But I am always willing to try new things, I would say my reading is not limited to anything. With that, I think it might have had a slow start, but a story needs to start somewhere. So I continued reading and found myself staying up way too late, telling myself "just one more page" The story is like of none I've ever read before. It is mixed with the love of cross stitch (which I've actually always wanted to learn) and magic. That's not something you read about everyday. It had the perfect mix of magic, background story, and of course love. I will definately be reading it again and can't wait to read the next one.

    When I first read what The Crystal Needled was about I told my daughter I had to read it. So she talked to Dan Peyton about it and he said ok and allowed us to read and review it.

    I am not normally into books with magic and fantasy. This wonderful book is an amazing read. This book takes you on a ride you will enjoy with the magic, fantasy, and romance. I am going to be looking out for more of his work.

    You will fall in love with Joseph.

    This book is a book for all ages.
    You will not be let down while reading The Crystal Needle.
    Dan wrote it in away that makes you wonder will there be a book 2 however if there isn't that is ok as the book is written with all the details you want in case a book 2 doesn't come.

    I will be sharing about this book with all my friends and family. 5 stars

    Book Angels12 was given a copy to read and review.

    I guess you can say the main theme to this imaginative fantasy is good vs evil and how witchcraft could be used to either help or hurt others. I couldn't help but be drawn into this emotional tale. From the start I was interested in the inviting characters as well as that wolf dog that wasn't a dog at all. The writing is pleasing and easy to follow. I was entertained as the story unfolded before me. I could see this touching story being made into a movie. I loved the positive messages and unique delivery.




    "Joseph could not help himself; he liked something about this dog. He held out the apple. The wolf slowly approached the porch and stuck its head between the wide set bars. With only her teeth, she gently took the apple from him. She stopped for a moment and looked at him as though she was thanking him, then slunk away into the trees."

    Dan Peyton has the most amazing way of telling a story that will bring you into the lives and emotions of all the characters.  This one left me wanting more .
    I hated to reach the end of the book.   I found that The Crystal Needle is a book that will be loved by all ages.  
    There is love, loss and  so many other emotions going on that you do not get bored with this book for one minute.  
    Check out his books.  I am sure you will also be hooked on his stories as I am.
