Book Review: A Tale of Two Worlds by Susan Waterwyk
|5 stars, 1 review|
Susan Waterwykabout this book: Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis are increasing. Life on Earth is threatened. The Keepers of Akosh have known since the sinking of Atlantis that these catastrophes would occur. They devised a plan to locate the ruins of Atlantis and recover the giant myra crystals. Tylya Lansing is given the task of retrieving the crystals, while the Keepers of Akosh gather and evacuate some refugees, plants and animals and take them to the terra-formed sanctuary world of Lantamyra. Meanwhile, Josh Hamilton, Tylya's lover has taken the dangerous task of crystal seeking in the mine at Queen's Heart. If the crystal sickness doesn't kill him, the hungry ghosts that inhabit the myra crystals are waiting to bleed the life energy from his body.
Lantamyra is also the sanctuary for dragons that have waited thousands of years for the crystal chamber to acquire the power to return them to their homeworld of Lanluong. They need the giant crystals of Atlantis as much as the humans; the inhabitants of two worlds now depend on Tylya to successfully retrieve the crystals.
Readers of science fiction should enjoy the story because extra effort went into making the scientific aspects believable. The myra crystals provide the magical elements in the story, but their power has physical limits. Readers of fantasy, romance and planetary travels should enjoy this fast-paced story.

Other book by Susan Waterwyk
A fantastical fantasy for readersTransport yourself to a whole new world. A world where cell phones, computers and electronic devices are not necessary since crystal power eliminates the need for such items.
A Tale of Two Worlds is the sequel to Lantamyra and it delivers a great extension of the first story. Lantamyra allows humans and dragons to live in harmony where both species unite to work together for a greater cause….survival.
I enjoyed the levels of suspense as the Keepers travel between Earth and Lantamyra set rescue missions in place to gather Earth's life forms from catastrophic devastation and avoid potential extermination.
I found the mystery of the crystal mines to be intriguing and captivating as the crystal power is not only immense but is quite treacherous.
The story chronicles Earth's dangerous environmental conditions and seems to be quite prophetic in the respect that our planet is currently experiencing similar severe events.
The humor and drama in the plot is engaging and will have readers turning pages along with anticipation of the continuing story.
