C.R. Cummings is the author of numerous fantasy books. If you ask her why she wrote them her normal reply is "Fantasy is easier than real life most of the time...and you get to decide the outcome."
A self-proclaimed Oregonian, she spends her free time writing, trying to keep the house clean and hiding from the mountain of clothes that needs folding.

C.R. Cummings second book in the Evensong Trilogy was not what I expected. I wanted to find out what happened to the characters at the end of ‘Quest of the Evensong’ -- that ending was so cool.
This story starts out with Pii, a college kid on the planet Niula, who is not your normal college kid, nor is Niula your normal earth-like world. It’s made up of crystals, even the air, and it sparkles and is full of life. Pii’s best friend is Dawn, a princess by all accounts, and both, because of their uniqueness, never get to lead a normal life.
All attend Niula College in the heart of the largest city, and the story takes off when all of them get their own private apartment – and start playing around with crystals! Pii and Dawn, along with Grace, Sisko, Genni, Aly, and the twins, Beci and Von, are all well-defined characters.
Again, C.R. Cummings created a story that was not what I expected…a little more Sci Fi than ‘Quest of the Evensongs’, but it had to be. I expected the story to start off where the other left off…and it did not. I knew the characters, at least their names, from the first book. It was not in the medieval type setting at all, which did surprise me. I went back to see the author’s notes and she did say the books did not need to be read in order, but she liked the other one to be read first. I understood why as I read Lost in the Evensongs. Both stories needed to be told and they come together at the end -- and oh my gosh what an ending!
