Synopsis

Seeking Crystal by Joss Stirling

Crystal Brook has always been the dud Savant in her family; paranormal powers just aren't her thing. Dropping out of school with a clutch of 'E' grades and no future, she lives in the shadow of her high-flying sister Diamond. On a trip to Denver, a chance encounter with the dashing Benedict brothers leaves Diamond head over heels in love and engaged to be married. Crystal, on the other hand, is unimpressed by their charms ...in fact no boy can annoy her as much as Xav Benedict! Back in Venice, their families assemble for Diamond's wedding and a powerful enemy seizes the opportunity to attack. Crystal and Xav must join forces to save their loved-ones, unlocking a secret that, until now, has lain deeply buried ...

About the Author

Joss Stirling

Joss Stirling studied English at Cambridge and has always been fascinated by the idea that life is more than what we see on the surface. Researching Finding Sky saw her travelling in the characters' footsteps, from the awe-inspiring landscape of the Rockies, down a white-water river on a raft, and to the artificial pleasures of Las Vegas. Stealing Phoenix followed - to widespread acclaim - and her most recent novel, Seeking Crystal, was published in 2012.
