In this book King Kareed searches for the legendary sword of Bellandra, and wins it from the King of Bellandra. He kidnaps the prince, Landen, and brings him to his daughter as a slave. His daughter, Torina, sets Landen free and they become close friends. Then she starts to see deadly visions in her crystal. It is up to her to save her family and her kingdom.
The characters are flat and not fully developed, and the book is very predictible. This book is definitely not a must-read, there are far better books to spend your time reading.
