Contest: Mistress of Crystals: Chronicles of the Second War of the Gods by Justyna Plichta-Jendzio

About the Book:

The tears of the goddess Mirge must be found.

Thousands of years ago the beings of Naor, forced to stand against Hodgorn, god of darkness, won. Yet evil survived and now the empire prepares for the final battle. Hodgorn is determined to return, conquer, and rule in place of his brother Ulse, god of light. As he gathers his forces, the only hope is Ainara, Mistress of Crystals, a girl with a pure soul, chosen by the gods to rule the power of the Agarniles, the diamond tears, Mirge’s legacy.

Divided between the Elves, Dwarfs, and Humans to safeguard them, the Arganiles must be reunited and the Mistress must harness their power. Supported by a priest, the Pharaoh’s son, two protector warriors, Ainara sets forth on a dangerous quest which will demand sacrifice and all her courage, insight and tenacity.

But as with every human soul, Ainara is not absolutely pure and the Arganiles will not tolerate any evil or imperfection. Ainara is in danger.

All art was to raise society to become role model citizens, hence literature like sf or fantasy was regarded as unusefull. Yet in the ’80’s regime in Poland wasn’t very strict and lot’s of foreign literature, moovies appeared on Polish market. It was then when I saw “Never ending story”(I queued for 6 hours to get a ticket), “Labirinth” and read “Lord of the Rings”. To buy the book I pre-ordered it 2 weeks before I was delivered in limited amount to a small store, which specialized in sff literature. An then I fall in love with this kind of literature. Earlier Icould read only miths and legends of ancient cultures. Which also fascinated me, yet was not so tempting as advantures I have discovered later. Continue reading
