Defenders of Magic by Lynette Creswell Cover Reveal
In the final installment of the trilogy, Crystal will face her greatest challenge yet. There is a war coming and Elveria is after her blood. He alone knows he will do anything to prevent her from taking her rightful place, for if she is one day Queen and Niculmus is by her side, a peace will come to their troubled land that will leave him powerless and forgotten. After following the princess back to the ordinary world, an accomplice tricks Matt into giving Crystal a potion which he believes will make her fall in love with him forever, but the ruby-red liquid is nothing more than a deadly poison. Crystal is taken by Abaddon to the very gates of Hell but much to his dismay, she will not take her final breath. Lost between worlds, Crystal’s only hope is for those left behind to find a way to bring her back to the light before it’s too late. Each step they take will bring them closer to the truth, lead to a battle and, more importantly, decide the fate of Crystal and the Kingdom of Nine Winters …
Lynette was born in London, England, and from the tender age of five she was raised by her grandmother and given books to help keep her quiet. Lynette found she had a passion for reading and subsequently started writing once she began school. Whilst at junior school Lynette’s teacher was so impressed with her writing skills that her stories were often read out to her classmates and her teacher told Lynette that she should try to develop her writing ability further.
Lynette never got that chance to further her career as a writer but once she was married she began writing bedtime tales for her young sons. Lynette’s husband was so impressed with her ability to capture their imaginations that he encouraged her love of writing by buying her a laptop in the hope she would write something more substantial. So with a little push in the right direction, Lynette decided her first novel would be something that all children love to read about (and some adults too) – magic!
Lynette’s inspiration came from several writers, firstly from childhood books written by Enid Blyton. ‘The Enchanted Wood’ and ‘The Faraway Tree’ were her first real taste of fantasy and later on Stephanie Meyer’s ‘Twilight Series’ captured her own vivid imagination. Her first novel, ‘Sinners of Magic’ was published in 2012 and still receives outstanding reviews. ‘Betrayers of Magic’ became the second book of the trilogy published in 2013 and last but my no means least, ‘Defenders of Magic’ will be the final chapter of this magical saga and should be out to buy in December 2013.
Lynette now lives in North East Lincolnshire with her husband and two dogs. Her two small granddaughters, who both live locally, are the apple of her eye.
