The Crystal Heart
Author- Sophie Masson
A girl in a tower
An underground kingdom
A crystal heart split in two
Symbolizing love lost.
When a young farm boy named Kasper joins the elite guard watching over a dangerous prisoner he thinks he’s protecting his country from a powerful witch. Until one day he discovers the prisoner is a beautiful princess- Izolda of Night- condemned to die on her 18th birthday. Kasper decides to help and that’s the start of an amazing adventure. Will they find their happily ever after?
This summary is almost the same as the one on the back of the book. The reason I did this is because there is no other way to explain it – I would be giving too much away.
My favourite character is Kasper because he gave his normal and safe life up to rescue Izolda from the Kings clutches and return her home where she is destined to become Queen. Kasper’s love for Izolda conquered all.
This book is a twist on the fairy tale Sleeping beauty.
I loved the book and recommend it to girls who like an odd twist on fairy tales.
