Editorial Reviews

reviewyourbook.com - Anne Boling
“The Crystal Rose reads like a beloved fairy tale. Dragons, knights, and sorcerers fill the pages. I love this story. The plot is fascinating, and the characters are delightful. This is a must read for fans of fantasy.” 5 Stars! Reviewed by Anne Boling for ReviewYourBook.com
Amanda Kilgore
“From childhood, knights and their deeds have fascinated Breanne. After she is orphaned suddenly, she discovers a life that is equally adventurous and brings her into contact with knights, wizards, and dragons. She also learns many things she believed were wrong. Though greater length would have served this book well by allowing for more world building, the author will easily entertain her target audience in this miniature epic fantasy.” Amanda Kilgore
Fallen Angel Reviews - Fallen Angels
5 Angels! “Ms. Karas has created a phenomenal young adult story with characters who are willing to fight for what is right. Breanne has lived through many tragedies, but somehow she has retained the strength to keep fighting. The scenes with the dragons are so descriptive that they come alive for the reader. I enjoyed the comedic relief enacted through the baby dragon Eth. It is my hope that young people can read this and for a little while live in a world where what seems the impossible
Chris Chat Reviews - Chris C
“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.” ChrisChat Reviews
