Review from book1 of series "It's going to make a great series"-Irene N. Watt http: //www.irenenwatts.com/ Lovely characterization, and the suspense is maintained until the end. It's going to make a great series.

In this book Susan travels back in time to ancient Egypt and the creation of the crystals. She is adopted by an evil magician. Eventually, she makes friends with the grand vizier's son, but is instantly despised by Neferure, daughter of the ruler.
I appreciate Ludlow's ability to entertain and educate me about many aspects of life at that time. The book has plenty of action and suspense.
"If you value books with life messages that you read for your
children, grandchildren, and for your own pleasure, you will
love my "Crystal Journal" series.The young heroine grows and
learns through traveling back in time and, in book 4...the future.
Responsibility, friendship, loyalty, teamwork, death, loss are just
a glimpse of the lessons our Susan Sinclair, guardian of the crystal,
experiences.She embraces life with her friends she meets along
the way, on a very exciting journey with many adventures." GRL
