The Review: Seeking Crystal is book three in the Benedict series and author Joss Stirling is still going strong. This is one of my favourite series - ever, and they just get better and better with each book.
This time around we see Crystal Brooks - who has always been apart of the Savant world, however she feels more disconnected then everyone towards her gift. It hardly works and it makes her feel sick. So when her sister, Diamond finds her soul finder in Tracy Benedict, Crystal has no choice but to meet the rest of his family, including Xav Benedict who as you can guess, becomes her soul finder but there are some unexpected twists along the way. While planning for Diamond's wedding the Brooks and Benedicts come together but it's not long before trouble coming looking for the Benedicts and now, Crystal and Xav must join together to saved their families.
I loved it, just loved it! I don't think I could ever be disappointed with Joss Stirling's work because there's so much love and magic that goes into her stories, which makes them become beautiful reads, and Seeking Crystal is nothing short of amazing. What I enjoyed about this story so much was not only did we get to see one brother find his soul finder but we found two. So this time around, we get two for the price of one.
I've always been a massive fan of Xav's so, I was thrilled this book was about him. I adore his personality, he's very funny and he does love himself just a little bit but he's admiral, caring and honest. We've always seen him as the player out of the all the other brothers, so it was great to see him find the one for him. Now Crystal, I liked her, I really did but she was very stubborn. Not that that made me dislike her in any way but because she's stubborn, she makes rash decisions that cloud her mind. I love her and Xav's relationship because it was so different from the other brothers. I won't tell you any more because I don't want to spoil it for you but be prepared to be shocked. And Crystal comes with many secrets...especially one secret that she doesn't even know herself and let me tell you, what a game changer it is. I can not wait to see where Joss takes this, it really was a mind-blowing game changer.
Seeking Crystal is definitely one of my favourites out of the series. It's adventuress, engaging and very captivating - one full of hope, love and hidden secrets and I loved every single minute of it. I can not wait for book four in the series and I'm dying to find out who it will feature this time.
A big thank you to Oxford Publishing for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
