Book Details

Two gods. A world divided. One man and one woman destined to decide which god will control humanity's destiny for the next 1,000 years.

For Mirah, who has a mind of her own and a will far outweighing her slight stature, her late father’s general supply shop was the world. Then came a simple knock on the door one cold, winter night following an exhausting day. Her only goal being to dismiss whoever it was so she could get to bed, she answered it. Unfortunately, the two Knights on the other side had orders that would ultimately shatter her world. In the blink of an eye, she’s ripped from the only life she’s known and riding headlong into a destiny for which she was not prepared. A destiny she shares with a man named Rasmun who seems bent on killing her. Through dark forests, scorching deserts, snow covered mountains, and cursed land, she and her Knight Protectors; the arrogant Commander Roenin, patient Colonel Alyen, and fiery, red-headed Captain Samone; first learn about then struggle to fulfill the demands of a secret held by the Temple for the last one thousand years. A secret that will not only change Mirah’s life forever, but the world as well.


About the Author

T. L. Howard

From the first day I can remember, I have been fascinated with the “what-ifs” in life, sometimes to the point of distraction. Early on, I found the only way I could satisfy this curiosity was to write, to create worlds and fill them with people living out the “what-ifs” my mind insisted on conjuring. To this day, I can't stop creating worlds based on the “what-ifs.” “The Crystal Key” is the first of three in a series. When not writing, which is seldom as demonstrated by my bad housekeeping, I enjoy needlework, walking, and a good movie.
