indie ebook cover

Tales of the Crystal

The forgotten temple of the Goddess Narine, the mystical Lady Mist, and a new army controlled by evil. What are their chances of success?

The deep desert is a vast wasteland, thousands of miles of shifting sands and blowing winds. Ancient obelisks are discovered leading to the forgotten temple of the Goddess Narine. The reading of the Twelve Tablets brings forth a mystical being, but also releases a powerful evil. All the people of the eastern and deep desert are in peril. Those possessed by the evil must be stopped before it can be brought back into balance. Can it be done?

Awiel of the Dance -a sexy and talented Crystal Seeress known as Tarina. This desert born beauty lends her exceptional talents to this monumental quest.

Darian - a young Crystal Warrior who explores the vastness of the deep desert and discovers an ancient temple. Designated the Keeper of the Word he causes a mystical being to come forth while at the same time unwittingly freeing an ancient evil.

Dorian - Darian’s crystal warrior armorer father, one of only five survivors from an excursion into the deep desert years before. Now he returns to his beloved desert with his son.

Lady Mist - a beautiful being brought forth by the reading of the Twelve Tablets. Hers is the task of bringing into balance the thousand year old evil set free by that reading.

Many others play pivotal roles in this epic tale of ancient magic and adventure.

***** This is a good read. It takes up where both the first and second books left off - yeah, both of them. I like the time-walking, the mystical shadow warriors, and Lady Mist and sergeants rule the army! There's good comic relief with the comical snake Ith . ·· JD King

***** The changing landscape of the story and of the desert, war, magic, and a touch of sensuality, I was all in. ·· W.R. Masters

***** ...What I most enjoy about this story is the ability of the author to draw one into the minds of his characters, even those who happen to be on the "wrong" side of the battle. Additionally, the banter is natural and entertaining, the characters are complex and dynamic, and the battles are epic and exciting. On that note, few authors are able to narrate a battle with such skill that they can keep me from skimming through them, but R.L. Kiser is one of them. ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads

**** R.L. Kiser has created a really epic trilogy with the Tales of the Crystal series and I have loved each one more than the other. The Twelve Tablets is fast paced and it really forces your brain to try to keep up with all of the action, while at the same time keeping you engaged in the characters. For me, this book is very character driven and I like that fact. Each character is well fleshed out and you can picture them in your mind and understand why they choose to do the actions they do. Lovers of fantasy are really going to enjoy this last installment of the series because it hits all the key points you like to see in well written fantasy work. I am glad that I started reading this series and would highly recommend it. ·· Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite
