The Demon's Crystal




The Demon's Crystal by Lenard Hale 
Science Fiction Mystery Thriller

For Eric Frost, Madagascar is a place of beauty and learning. A researcher in bio-robotics, Eric finds the sheer variety of flora and fauna fascinating – but when he finds Unseen Madagascar, an unassuming book by a missing British author named Richard Walters, Eric learns that there’s more to the nation than meets the eye.

The text speaks of an island off the coast of Madagascar known only as Demon Island. There, the author suggests, lives an isolated and hostile tribe of natives who seem to jealously guard something held deeper in the island’s interior.

Eric, along with his friends Ivy and Max, pledge to get to the bottom of the mystery. They travel to Madagascar and begin to plan a journey out to Demon Island, but instead they meet the mysterious Daniel, a self-proclaimed American explorer full of dark warnings and vague stories. He eventually agrees to help Eric and his friends get to Demon Island, but at a price…




5 out of 5 fairies

The Demon's Crystal grabs you from the start. If I could, I would give this a higher rating. Earth, space, mystery, intrigue, and heart racing moments combine to keep you completely wrapped up within its pages. The characters are dynamic (although their back story isn't too in-depth). I absolutely recommend this for anyone looking for a great thriller that skirts beyond the line of reality into the seemingly impossible unknown.

About the Author: Though Lenard Hale is a core IT guy for his day job, he’s always been happier writing stories than writing code. Writing a novel has been on his bucket list for years; completing The Demon’s Crystal is that dream becoming a reality. When not absorbed in weaving new stories, Lenard can be found enjoying music, traveling to new locales, riding his bike, and spending too much time in front of his computer.
