Product Description

When eighteen-year-old orphan, Crystal Valdez, accepts an invitation to the small town of Blacksville, West Virginia, she hopes to have a summer to remember and a chance to learn more about her parents, to also get to know the family she never knew existed. But the Lockes begin to act strange and erratic; eerie movements in the night fuel her vivid and gruesome nightmares. To complicate her summer further, she becomes attracted to the menacing yet handsome Cray Locke: her non-blood related cousin. He seems determined to keep his distance. The only bonus to her trip seems to be the housekeeper and gardener. And when a local informs Crystal of the secrets buried at Thorncrest Manor, the kind consisting of a forbidden relationship and a war between hidden worlds, and witchcraft, she must decide whom to trust. Even if it means leaving behind those she has come to love.

4.0 out of 5 stars A suspensful Mystery that keeps you guessing 13 February 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**Gifted in exchange for an honest review, By Kats Book Promotions/ Katsindiebookblog**
Story line - Excellent
Characters - Complex and mysterious
Cliffhanger? - the story ends leaving you wondering if there is a book 2.
Pace - Slow going at first - got more interesting past the 69% mark
Romance - to be honest I would not say this was a Romance book its a Paranormal Suspense.

FMC - Crystal is an 18 year old orphan who has spent her lifetime being distant and just trying to get along in the world, she has her boss whom she holds most dearest, and TJ who she works with but has no romantic affection for. There is mysterious best friend who is no longer on the scene due to a fall out but you do not find any of that out until the very end. When a mysterious Aunt arrives at her workplace she learns that there is a chance to find out about her past.

She is however cautious and doesn't rush off to the wilds of West Virginia straight away, and her new Aunt seems to be on the level and so finally she agrees to visit. To meet the distant cousins and find out about her family.

But things get a bit strange when she arrives, the Lockes are acting strange and the house is extremely spooky. Crystal is beginning to suspect she was brought here on false pretenses.

Now one of the Supporting characters is Cray, Crystals Non blood related cousin, and Crystal is attracted to him (god knows why, as I didn't find him at all romantic he spent most of the book being standoffish and abrupt to Crystal).

The only ones who seem to have any kindness for Crystal are the housekeeper and the gardener and when Crystal begins to have powerful nightmares and the locals inform Crystal of the mysterious past and supposed curse on the family does she come to realise she is not safe there.

Crystal is stuck with wanting to know more about her past and the impending feeling that she is not safe at Thorncrest Manor.

With things going bump in the dark, and the weird ways that the Locke's have, she tries to find out more by going to see a local mystic. That's when things start to really get interesting. But that I will leave you to find out yourself.

The writing is well done, the mystery keeps you guessing until about 50% on what paranormal happenings are going on at Thorncrest, But I found that the relationship between Crystal and Cray was too vague and it made me really wonder what Crystal saw in Cray.

But there wasn't much given about Crystals past and her Boss until very late on. Yes, they are introduced, and there is interaction, but I would have liked a little bit more. There was a lot of mystery with the Locke family, but I did wonder why Crystal would put up with their attitudes when she had been quite independent her whole life.

But the suspense and mystery kept me turning the pages, and you are really kept guessing for a long while which was great, we finally start to understand who the Lockes really are, but not completely, so I am assuming that there will be a Book 2, well I hope so.

Cray did redeem himself partly by the end of the book, but I feel that their relationship was more a case of manipulation rather than soul mates. But I guess that is in the hands of Miriam Khan.

The description sounded interesting, yet when I got into this book I found myself very frustrated with the story. Crystal has made a life for herself since she is without any family in her life. When Isobel shows up claiming to be able to tell Crystal about her mother I can totally go with that. It is after she gets to the Locke home and the way that everyone behaves that makes me need to keep putting my kindle down. Crystal is made out to be a damaged yet strong personality. Yet she continues to stick around as everyone plays head games with her. It just doesn't make sense to me that she would just shake it off and go into another room. This whole book leaves you still unsure what is actually going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars in a good way I promise 23 January 2015
By Jenni Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am reviewing this book on behalf of katsindiebookblog. The Lebrus Stone is not what I had expected, in a good way I promise! From the moment I started reading it was hard to put it down. This book is well written and explains everything thoroughly, so you will not be left with questions. For me it wasn’t your typical paranormal which I enjoyed. Miriam stepped out of the box and changed things up.
Crystal is an orphaned child, after her mom and dad died in a fatal car crash and then her Aunt dying in a house fire. All Crystal wants are some answers about her family. What kind of people were they? Anything any orphaned kid would like to find out about their moms and dads. Well she finally has her answers available with her moms best friend locates her and makes a visit. To get all the answers Crystal wants, her Aunt requests that she come to her house and spends a few weeks with her and her kids to get to know each other.
As soon as they arrive, not only does the family, including the unofficial Aunt, start acting weird but she is also having awful nightmares. Her only reprieve out of the stay is the company of the housekeeper and the gardner, they seem the less strange out of the whole house. She is also enjoying the view of sexy man Cray, however he wants nothing to do with her and does his best to keep his distance. She is able to become friends with a local and she starts telling Crystal all the stories and mysteries of the family and the house they live in.
Can Crystal figure out all she needs to know about her family before her time is up? And will she also find out if there are any truths to the stories about the family and the house? If you are up to a well written book and love suspense, this book is right for you!
2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing and Frustrating 2 February 2017
By KRLGA - Published on Amazon.com

Crystal is surprised to find a long lost relative waiting to see her at work one day, especially since she thought she was all alone. When the woman invites her to come visit her family’s estate, Crystal is excited at the opportunity to learn more about her parents. Once there, nothing is as she expected, and it does not really seem as if she is wanted. The only positive is her distant relative, Cray, whom she is drawn to regardless of his attempt to reject her. Crystal has no idea what is going on but hopes to find some truths.

I had no expectations going into this book, keeping an open mind and hoping for something different. Unfortunately, this book was not a read that I enjoyed. This review will be fairly short since I am not a huge fan of being negative, but I will be very truthful about why I did not care for the book. Honestly, I guess this would be a paranormal romance book but this almost felt like Twilight fan-fiction to me, just on how the romance progressed and the characterizations (which could also be why I did not like the book because I am not a Twilight fan).

My biggest problem with the story was Crystal. It's almost a guarantee that if I don't like the main character, it is very unlikely that I will like the book. Crystal drove me insane almost from when I first met her. She was an odd girl, which I am completely fine with, but I meant this in a negative way. She was full of contradictions, such as saying she won't ever chase a boy and then ten seconds later that is all she is doing (the entire book was her pursuing him!). She threw herself at a guy who insulted her in every way with no regard for self worth or dignity. Everyone knew her feelings towards him, so much so that it made me uncomfortable for her while reading. And by the way, the fact they were related (sort of) did not deter her in the slightest. I HATED her relationship (if you can call it that) with Cray, the book would have been better in my opinion if he/the relationship did not exist. Also, she was so needy and emotional all the time, I would think that somebody who was an abandoned orphan would have much thicker skin, but nope.

​I also had a problem with the format/editing of the book. I spent a majority of the story being confused. Seriously, I was on page 250 out of 360ish and I was still unsure of what was going on. I am not sure if it was intentional (for some unknown reason) by the author, but the writing was really choppy. It felt like things were missing while I was reading, such as transitions or sentences… I don’t really know, it just wasn’t cohesive. There were times that editing was needed (at least I felt so), like her potential love interest in Utah was referenced as being a high school sophomore, which struck me as odd since Crystal was in college. There were other inconsistencies all over the place with words and descriptions that distracted me from point of the book. ​

​Based on how many positive reviews there are on Goodreads, I am sure that somebody else will really enjoy the story. ​I am also pretty sure that this is the first in a series with the end of the story left hanging like it was.

I received this book from the author in return for my honest review.
3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy, thrilling and goose bump raising 13 January 2017
By Tonja Drecker - Published on Amazon.com
Mystery, creepy moments and a constant fog of tension combine with a sense of the paranormal to make for an engaging read.

Crystal's an orphan but gets along fine until a long-lost great aunt suddenly appears at her door. Crystal agrees to join her wealthy relatives in the Thorncrest mansion, where she meets cold shoulders and a dark mystery.

Crystal is an independent girl and despite her obvious heavy baggage, comes across pretty strong. She's kind but guarded and an easy character to connect to. She has a couple of 'friends', which support her. There's a bit of a mystery around especially two of these, her boss and best friend, but these backgrounds don't really show up until the last pages--something I would have liked to see woven into the story earlier. Crystal also finds some allies at the mansion, which offer just the right amount of support and heart.

The setting is creepy and well down. The mansion is dark, shadowy, full of bumps in the night and keeps the reader on the edge of the seat. Crystal's new family is aloof with a rude and unkind attitude toward her, which raises the stakes and creates a spine-prickling atmosphere. With Crystal's independent nature, it wasn't quite clear why she put up with the treatment and, at times, her decisions lacked a little foundation. But the story stays thrilling and holds up the mystery and suspense nicely to keep those pages turning.

There's a bit of a romance, although it's more distanced and doesn't hit a real, emotional bond. So I'd shove this book more into the paranormal thriller direction than a romantic one.

The writing is well done. It's easy to get lost in the creepy world and wonder what might happen next. The pacing was a bit slow in the beginning, but earns full marks in this area once things get going about half-way into the book. The ending wraps up some ends, but many things are still unclear. So it appears that a book two is on the way.

Summed up, this is a goose bump raising story with lovely touches into the paranormal world. Friends of suspense and thrillers are sure to enjoy the read.

I received a complimentary copy and wanted to leave my thoughts.
