Daniel Gimness


Dear Readers,

Since an early age, I've been interested in fables and fairy tales.
After reading over 500 books and researching mythologies and religions from around the world, that vision coalesced into The Hidden Crystal.

The Hidden Crystal is a spiritual and fantasy adventure parable. It is a novel of adventure and passion. It is also a story of transformation where Sarac, (the questing hero) meets a magus figure who reveals how to activate the hidden spiritual power that lays dormant within all of us.

Follow the story of Sarac―a young man, alone in a strange land who finds everything that he cares about taken from him as he is thrust into a perilous quest to recover the two things which matter most: the woman he loves and the four Crystals of Power which have the potential to do great good, or in evil hands, rip the world apart.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.
