"Diello and Cynthe have always believed their parents are too cautious. The twins expect things to be different on their thirteenth birthday. Their mysterious Fae mother has promised them that today they’ll be given magical gifts, and they’re planning to sneak off to the village fair.
But nothing goes right. The magic isn’t what they hoped. Their human father won’t let them out of their chores. They’re forbidden to attend the fair and are sent on an errand instead. Then the day turns deadly as Diello and Cynthe are plunged into a lethal game of cat and mouse with old enemies of their parents. Suddenly there are secrets upon secrets to unwind. Who is friend and who is foe? And what have their parents been hiding."
Let me tell you that there was lots of Fae action going on. They was fighting, running and risking their life at every turn of a corner. Diello is the only boy and needs to take care of his sister. I loved his heroism when he sets out to find his little sister. He takes a stand as the man and takes no crap. He slowly is learning knowledge of his powers and secrets.
The adventure of Deillo and Cynthe go on was fun and exciting. As a reader, you too get the feel of the adventure and learning every secret. Deillo and Cynthe learn a lot about their family. My heart felt for them that they had to discover this all on their own. But they stayed strong and kept going. This book touch a lot about racial issues between human and fae. I had never seen that around and thought it was a nice touch.
Crystal Bones is a great fae adventure that has lots of action! It has lots of twist and turns, secrets to be revealed and a family that stands strong.
