Unknowing that she is a changeling, Crystal and those around her live life not knowing any better. However, she's always been able to sense danger. One day, her senses lead her to save her friend with magic. Wanting to know why she is the way she is, it appears that she will never know the truth about her powers. Until one day an elf approaches her, and offers to take her back to her homeland. Unable to pass up such an offer, Crystal and her friend Matt go with him, only to fall into the wrong hands when they get there.

This book has a fun story to tell, with magic, betrayal, and courage. The fantasy gets you day dreaming of such a world with different races, tabooed magic, and forbidden love. The ending leaving you satisfied, yet keeps the story open for the next. It's an enjoyable read!

Periodically I like to check out the Young Adult and Teen books available out on the indie market, as I have grandchildren and like to be able to recommend a good read for them. Sinners of Magic, by Lynette Creswell is a YA fantasy book, suitable for readers age 12 and up.
:
This is an excellent novel for teens. The characters are compelling, and the storyline is a good play on the traditional switched-at-birth theme. If at times the dialogue is a little stilted, over all this book was an enjoyable read. Crystal is a kind, rather cocky and headstrong girl. She is somewhat confrontational, but it seems to be her nature. Matt, whom she meets on Earth and whose life she saved is also a well-drawn, three-dimensional character.

Bridgemear is hard to like, but he is Crystal’s birth-father and a powerful magician, and Amella is a strong, usually likeable character. I like the way their relationship was handled.

Tremlon, the shape-changer and King's envoy, has a major role in this tale, and his burden of guilt and responsibility is handled well. At the end, I was left wondering about Amadeus, a strong, loyal and brave elf warrior who struggles with many issues. I’m definitely curious to see where that thread leads in the next book.

I did find the wood sprite, Bracken, to be quite hilarious, and I enjoyed Nekton, the innkeeper of Fortune's End, who longs for a real adventure. There is great atmosphere in this tale, and great adventure.

As in all good tales, bad things happen to good people, and worse things happen to the bad people. I liked the way the evil King Forusian, who kidnaps Crystal with lustful intentions, was dealt with.

I’d gladly recommend this book to any young teen, and give it four full stars for inventiveness and a good, immersive story. The narrative may be a little too young for some adults, but I found it to be an excellent afternoon of reading.

The protagonist in this work is a teenager named Crystal who has suffered though her years knowing she was different but not why. Having visions and being able to cause stuff to happen when she wears a certain piece of jewelry that her mother found in the crib with her as a baby are just the glamour on the surface. Just wait and see what she self discovers once she ventures out of the ordinary world.

I'm really impressed. Thank you very much Lynette for world building, creating an epic coming of age journey for a reader to be carried away with in a more meal sized package. Other than a few point of view shifts that muddle unless you immediately reread the passages I feel that this is a well thought out story and worthy of reading for ages nine and up.

On a more mature literary note it is amazing how we can develop fantasies and display questions or views of race relations. I felt that it was going to get a bit preachy but the topics were presented as an undercurrent throughout the book and resolved to a side by the end. The manuscript could use another pass by an editor but so could several works I have read from Tor and Random House.

I recommend this book not only for personal entertainment but as a book for discussion in groups of readers as they challenge each other to find all the plots and ideas.

This is truly a great enchanting read. Watch out Harry Potter! A new hero is here, and she's not wearing glasses. Be ready to get transported into another realm, where magic unfolds right before your eyes.

Imagine having been born to the mortal world, only to discover that you belong to another place where mythical creatures like elves, witches, shape-changers, wood sprites, warriors and mages dwell and conquer each other. Get ready to be fascinated, amazed, intimidated and frightened with the creatures of he Kingdom of Nine Winters. That's where Crystal was transported to, where she got lost, captured and rescued. But amidst all these experiences, she learned the truth about herself, she discovered who her true friends were and she tried her best to embrace her destiny.

I love so many things in this book. First, the characters. Crystal is one feisty daughter of Bridgemear, the magician, and Princess Amella, the banished daughter of King Gamada. She's incredibly brave and loyal, who wouldn't think twice in saving her friends, even if her life is in danger. She even got transcendental magic she never knew of. And there's Matt - a mortal who became Crystal's friend after she saved her from drowning and getting killed by an evil force (Abbadon) and who accompanied her to the Magical world.

Among the other characters I liked in the book are:
Bracken - the naughty wood sprite who was caught stealing Bridgemear's food
Tremlon - the trusted King's envoy and shape-changer who told Crystal about her birthright.
