Book One of The Crystal Warriors Series
Winner of the Romance Writers of New Zealand Clendon Award
When career-focused dancer Chalcedony (Chalcey) is given a piece of wulfenite crystal, Lord Wulfenite, Keeper of the Shifting Sands fief, emerges from the crystal and plants one on her. He’s dressed like an ad for We Love Leather, with killer abs and delectable pectorals. He looks like the man of her dreams, but you know what they say: “If he looks too good to be true, run like hell!”
Wulf has finally escaped from a centuries-long hell and he wants Chalcedony more than anything he’s wanted in his entire life. She doesn’t stand a chance. Before she realizes what’s at stake, she’s bonded to Wulf and his life is in her hands. And when the Crystal Guardian’s curse threatens everything she’s worked for, Chalcey must figure out how to save Wulf before it’s too late.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
“The Crystal Warrior is an intelligent, fast, action packed read with a feisty, sassy heroine Chalcedony and a really hunky hero, Wulfenite. This book has it all including laugh out loud humor, danger, twists and turns, and both protagonists have gut wrenching
choices to be made that leave you wondering right to the very end as to whether Chalcey and Wulf will make it. I absolutely love the concept of the Crystal Warriors, and Wulf’s and Chalcey’s story is well plotted and a fantastic read that has you wanting more.
Ms Anderson is an excellent writer. It’s very clear why this book won the prestigious The Clendon Award and I can’t wait to read more.”
“This book has it all, and leaves you wanting the next book in the series NOW! Chalcey is an independent woman who knows exactly what she wants, and how she plans to get it. She's worked hard to achieve her dream, and isn't about to let it go for the sexy
stranger who rescues her from the Date from Hell. Even if he does make her pulse race, and her body ache for forbidden pleasures. Wulf is a Crystal Warrior, brought here by a magic neither he nor Chalcey truly understand. This is their story, and the author
~ Anne Kane
has crafted it with enough emotion, suspense and twists that I found it hard to put down. It's easy to see why it won the Clendon Award!
I sure hope Ms. Anderson doesn't make us wait too long for the sequel!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed The Crystal Warrior. No surprises that it won the RWNZ Clendon Award—everything about it was beautifully crafted. Characters felt real—even ancient warrior Wulf—and I loved the interaction between modern day independent heroine,
~ Jennifer Lynne
Chalcey, and her hero. There was humour, angst, passion, the works! I am looking forward to the next book in Maree Anderson’s crystal warrior series.
Do you love strong alpha heroes? If so, you’ll absolutely love The Crystal Warrior. The Crystal Warrior begins with a compelling prologue: An army of warriors sent from another world to pillage women of
childbearing age. A brave old man desperate to protect his village. A crystal curse. I knew immediately I had a great story on my hands. AND the writing was excellent, which is a must for me. Fast forward a few hundred years. Chalcedony is a young woman trying
to make it on her own, just opening her own dance studio. She’s independent, witty, and strong. I instantly loved her. She quite literally stumbles into a strange little shop where she’s inexplicably drawn to a crystal—a crystal that later ends up in her bag with her
having no recollection of having purchased it. When the crystal is broken, Chalcedony finds herself feeling things for a stranger she has never felt before. Wulf is an ancient warrior who’s spent hundreds of years locked away in a crystal cell. He’s
ill-prepared for this world or for the emotions he’s hit with when he first sees Chalcedony. As hard as she may try, Chalcedony can no longer deny the connection she feels to Wulf. Or is it just another part of the curse? The chemistry between these two jumped off the
page, and there was no putting The Crystal Warrior aside until I’d made it all the way through. Wulf is positively swoon-worthy, and Chalcedony was never the frail heroine, but fought for the one she loved until the very end. Loved it from the first page to the last!
Recommended for adults.”
