Editorial Reviews

Review

Be prepared for a lengthy adventure if you open these pages, for if you choose to read this book you will not want to put it down, and even after you have done with it you may find it difficult to let it go from your mind. Crossover is the tale of a pod of sprytes as they venture forth to earn their wings. Through the nine rites — a series of ordeals meant to strengthen and educate the young would-be fairy — the wingless young learn a lot about their kind and their place in the realm and it isn’t all fairy dust and dragonfly wings.... The author does a tremendous job of thrusting the reader immediately into the midst of the Rites and there is nary a dull-moment from cover to cover. ... Time moves in Crossover, so much so that when you are done with the book you may feel you have actually come back from some other place. ...The pacing of the action, the attention to the details, the vivid and poetic descriptions of the creatures and places all add up to a truly first-rate read. ...This is a tightly woven novel full of energy, excitement, beauty and a great feeling of what-comes next, which happens to be written in a beautiful way. ... It is a fiercely entertaining journey of a book.” – Hattie Unglesbee, Faerie Magazine

"I give a resounding “Wow!" for Claudia Newcorn’s book, Crossover. This intelligently written adventure story involving old grudges, ambition, love, and other dimensions of existence, also speaks to the difficulties of growing up and making independent, responsible choices. The story follows the personal growth of Danai and her possible importance to the future of her people. Danai and the other young sprytes undergo the rituals of Krisalys in order to obtain their fairy wings. However, it quickly becomes apparent that each of the Rites involved is going to be far more dangerous than the sprytes realize, as not everyone wants them to succeed, or notice that a dark time in fairy history is about to return... by mid-chapter, I was hooked. The tightly written characters and adventures in this volume were engrossing, and although the story can easily be continued in future books, Scroll 1 is complete and satisfying on its own. The terrific storytelling in this book has certainly made me a fan of its author. Crossover: Krisalys Chronicles of Feyree: Scroll 1, by Claudia Newcorn, will appeal to a variety of ages, and is a good choice for those who think, as I did, that fairy-world stories are generally too fluffy. Interesting and unique, this is simply a wonderfully written, action-filled, thoughtful fantasy book.” – Deb Shunamon, Readerviews.com

“With Crossover, Claudia Newcorn has crafted a truly imaginative and breathtaking fantasy realm. Her engrossing storytelling and great attention to detail put Crossover among the top tier of fantasy books, on par with the famous works of Tolkien. Her research and well-laid groundwork have really paid off, as her fantasy world seems surprisingly realistic. The physics are believable, magic has its rules and limitations and every action has a consequence. She brings much needed rhyme and reason to the otherwise “anything goes” genre of fantasy. Newcorn has even developed a wholly original language system for her characters and fictional world, raising the bar yet another notch. But the real heart and soul of the book are the characters, which are as lifelike and engaging as any you will ever find. The way the characters interact with each other is so natural and real, it’s easy to forget that they’re only fictional. Newcorn’s debut novel has set the bar so high that it’s difficult to imagine what levels the forthcoming installments in the series will achieve. ” - Nick Pena, Editor, Chart Magazines

Crossover. Krisalys Chronicles of Feyree: Scroll 1

Winner of the 2008 Reviewers Choice Award


Can you surive the danger-filled Rites to earn your wings when even your High Loremaster is set against you?

In the best traditions of high fantasy and the immortal quest, the contemporary saga of the Krisalys Feyree Chronicles is a riveting tale of magic, danger, plots, dreams and ultimate betrayal that will engulf two realms, forcing féyree, dwarves and elves into a perilous struggle to discern truth from trouble as two ancient prophecies pit friends against each other in a battle of beliefs.

How do you convince an ice dragon to give you a tear when you're only three inches high? What do you do when you're dumped off at night in a bog filled with wraiths, and told "Hope to see you in the morning"? Crossover's gripping adventure weaves a fascinating saga in which féyree struggle through increasingly dangerous Rites in a quest to earn their wings, even as shadows of a forgotten prophecy gather to change their realm.

The saga continues in Dark Fire: Scroll 2 and concludes (for the moment) with Firestar: Scroll 3.

Crossover, by Caudia Newcorn, is the first in a three-book series about fairies called the Krisalys Chronicles of Feyree. Little fairies. Crossover tells the story of Danai and her quest to earn her wings in a world populated by dwarves, ael, (bigger than dwarves, smaller than humans) and fairies who can hide under a toadstool. Ms. Newcorn has crafted an entire world of her own imagining, with no connection whatsoever to our own.

Danai and her fellow sprytes must survive the nine Rites of Krisalys in order to earn their wings and be given the gift of flight. Guided by their solemn mentors and overseen by the mysterious and harsh Dolmen, they grow up fast as each day brings some new risk and reward. It soon becomes clear that Danai is chosen by some higher power to save her people from some great threat in the future, though the Dolmen denies it and calls her merely evil. She must overcome him, her own doubts and the love and loss of her friends to succeed.

This is a charming story in the spirit and style of Lord of the Rings. It's the best fantasy novel I've read to date. Ms. Newcorn created her own images and the language is fascinating. I love her name for things. Insects are manylegs, butterflies have become flutterbies and many more. My favorite is her name for spiders - webbers.

I recommend you try this book if you love fantasy, or just a good story that holds together and is true to its own internal rules. Book 2 will be available sometime this summer. This is a quality self-published book. (Gee, there really is such a thing!)

Format: Paperback
Do you know that kind of book that you can't put down and as soon as you finish it, you want to start over again?! That is the kind of book that Crossover is!
It is a thrilling, fantastical adventure, combining many mythical creatures and different languages that meld into a wonderful read!

I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy!

I took Crossover on my summer vacation to Portugal with the intent of relaxing with a good book. All I have to say is that it completely ruined my trip! :)
From the time I picked it up, I could NOT put this book down the entire time I was in Europe--
All I have to say is BUY THIS BOOK, READ and wait patiently for the next, if you can!
Claudia, HURRY!

This novel is rich in description and full of suprises. Far from being a predictable fantasy in which everything works out as it should, readers can take nothing for granted. The characters are complex enough so that it's believable when things go awry; and the uncertainties of our real world apply in the world of these small faeries as well. Most surprising, perhaps, is the harsh circumstances into which the main characters--childish sprytes trying to get their wings--are cast without much concern for their welfare, which provides much of the backdrop for conflict. The author does a wonderful job of crafting a magical world from a faerie's perspective, taking care to consider and describe both beauty and peril as they would relate to these tiny beings. She also follows the rules of good fantasy writing by providing sufficient and plausible background, as well as planting seeds for future conflict, relationships, and resolution. I'm looking forward to seeing where these threads lead in Scroll 2!
