Product description

Product Description

Darkness is falling across mystic Azdia. Soon, all of life will stop glowing with light. Soon, the trees will no longer spring to life. Already, many lumens, the caretakers of Azdia, have lost faith in their provider and protector, the mysterious Mr. Thicket. The only hope for them all are the awaited chosen ones, sent from another realm that is but a whisper of a rumor: a place called earth.

Del Ryder and her three best friends stumble through the portal into Azdia. There they meet Crimson, a lumen full of hope, who believes Del and her friends are the ones they have been waiting for. Unwilling to accept their destiny, the children manage to enlist Crimson’s help in what becomes a fight for their own survival. Held hostage by living trees, battered by storms, and caught in a stampede of giant beasts known as feldroes, the darkness of Azdia blocks them at every stage of their adventure. But Del and her friends persevere, following the clues of a cryptic riddle, in the hope that it leads them home.

Del Ryder and the Crystal Seed is the first book in the Del Ryder series. It is an adventurous ride, with fast-paced action, and colorful characters. Ideal for ages eight and up, but enjoyed by adults as well.

What Readers are Saying

This was a great story-- imaginative! A fantasy, adventure, action, good guys, bad guys, twists and turns, a little bit of everything that kept the story moving and left the reader wanting more. A female protagonist joins plenty of boys and male characters, including the benevolent Mr. Thicket, to keep everyone engaged.

As I read the story, I felt like I was back to my childhood days, with delightful, unique characters that are so true to life.

As an adult I was a little hesitant when I started this book for fear it was more a kids book. I was wrong. Sure this story will appeal to kinda but it also held my interest-in fact, it was such a good story I hated putting it down and wanted to get back to it. I actually turned off the tv so I could read this book instead.

Books in the Del Ryder Series:
Del Ryder and the Crystal Seed, Book 1

About the Author

On a road trip across western Canada, a boy and his two older sisters listened as their mother read them The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Although he knew he loved the story, and as a teenager went on to fall even more in love with The Lord of the Rings, it wasn't until the year he was turning 40 that Matthew David Brough felt the full force of these books. He sat down to write a story and out came Del Ryder and the Crystal Seed, the first book in a fast-paced fantasy adventure series for ages eight and up. Matthew is a pastor who doesn't like preachy books, but loves stories of hope. He lives in Winnipeg, Canada with his wife, Cheryl and daughter, Juliet.
