Is there such a thing as too much imagination? If so, newcomer J.A. Cullum may have it: her fantasy epic Lyskarion: The Song of the Wind has its own literature (exhibited in epigrams beginning each chapter), calendar and language (glossary included), not to mention a dizzying number of characters and humanoid races to keep straight. But it's all contained within a classic plotreluctant heroes waging a battle against eviland told in able prose, as living crystals called Karionin seek young wizards to wield their power and prevent the world from erupting into war.

Home to nine races of humans and near-humans, the world of Tamar lies on the brink of total war unless the living crystals known as the Karionin find young wizards capable of attuning themselves to the magic of the stones. First novelist Cullum begins her epic fantasy series with the tale of three young people destined to become bearers of the crystals. A unique approach to magic along with memorable characters makes this series opener a good choice for most fantasy collections.
