John and his circle of friends, wanted dead by the new ruler of the world, suddenly have their one and only sanctuary infiltrated and destroyed.

Yet this catastrophe is also an opportunity for the group of teenagers to do what their elders have so far failed to do, and topple the tyrant once and for all.

With the Woodward Base destroyed by Arnold Hammerson and his soldiers, John and his friends must take what little magic they have and put it to most effective use.

But a problem remains: how to do what they know must be done? The problem is far too big to be solved with a single stroke of spellwork, as our heroes soon discover.

Their only real chance is to put to use a piece of knowledge which almost no one in the world knows about, even though it would result in certain death for all of them if they fail.

About the Author

Stephen Hayes lives and writes in Melbourne, Australia, and has a distinctly 'Aussie' style of writing. Having been born partially blind in 1986 and lost his limited vision in 2000, he started writing stories at the age of eight, completing his first novella in Braille at the age of fourteen and by sixteen, had completed the first draft of what would become his debut publication: The Seventh Sorcerer.

'The Magic Crystals' is Hayes' main project: A story of youth, laughter, pain, romance, heartbreak, good and evil, life and death, power and magic. Not afraid to speak his mind, and prepared for whatever consequences come of it, he doesn't mind stepping outside social convention and stating uncomfortable and controversial truths about today's society, particularly where teenagers are concerned. As the theme of power is explored, the books stray into political, psychological and philosophical debates, making 'The Magic Crystals' an odd combination of both light and deep reading.
