I have just read the first book of a trilogy, Sinners of Magic, which didn’t take me long as I couldn’t put it down! What a delightful read. The quality of the descriptive writing and appealing characters jumped off the pages, transporting me from my armchair into world of engaging fantasy.
The story is a delight from the first line to the last as each sentence is cram packed with imagination, expression and flair. The absorbing passages ooze creativity and take the reader on an action packed journey full of charming appeal and sheer pleasure.
Seldom does a novel achieve complete escapism, but this one has. Being able to hold the reader enthralled until the final page is an absolute credit to its author. I have swiftly purchased the other two books in the trilogy which I’m eager to read so that I can appreciate Lynette Creswell’s writing talent in its entirety.
This unique, engaging fantasy story is the first in the series of The Magic Trilogy. It revolves around a beautiful girl called Crystal, daughter of a magician and an elf Princess, who was switched at birth and left under mysterious circumstances in the earth world. She possesses magical powers, not yet developed, but obviously potentially powerful. The complex story describes her action-packed, often terrifying journey to the Magical World, to discover the secret of her mysterious beginnings, as well as learning her extraordinary destiny. The fascinating adventures she becomes engulfed in involve a large cast of well-drawn characters from the Kingdom of Nine Winters, who are described in great detail and with impressive imagination. These include Tremlon, a space-changer, Matt, the mortal, Bridgemear the magician, crafty witches, brave elves, mischievous sprites and of course the baddie of the piece, the evil Ferusian, King of the terrifying Nonhawk. Everything required for a great fantasy tale is here, bursting with intrigue, betrayal, love and mystery. I enjoyed Sinners of Magic from beginning to end; it's a great read, try it yourself.
Crystal, the beautiful copeer haired heroine is 17 years old with a mysterious past and inexplicable powers. Her friend Matt, a teen heartthrob, follows her bravely, if a bit reluctantly, into the unknown. Their adventure is non-stop action and filled with breath-taking suspense. They meet Tremlon a shape-shifting elf, in the public library where he conjures a living, miniature fire-breathing dragon. When sparks literally fly, they all flee into the extraordinary world where they meet an engaging cast of vibrant characters ~ dashing warrior wizards, suspicious elven courtiers, a helpful, yet reclusive woman, a sinister witch, and a delightful wood-sprite named Bracken. And what adventure would be complete without an evil villain whose plotting threatens to overthrow the entire Nine Winter’s Realm?
In short, this cleverly told tale packs in adventure, intrigue and a distinctive world-view that is sure to please both young adults and even a fun loving, older young-at-heart audience. I highly recommend this book to all readers of YA and light fantasy. I have even taken a peek into her next book, Betrayers of Magic, already promising to surpass this remarkable tale.

Not an overly impressive book I have to say. I think it is more aimed at a children or teenage readership. A bit dissapointing. I will not be reading the rest of the series. Read morePublished 18 months ago by BarbieV
