I was given the opportunity to review the Crystal Prince: Love is the Way by: Jeanette Clinger Hurley. This book was provided to me by Media Guests, I was not paid for this review, only provide a free copy of this book. The review is my own words.
I was anxious to read this book, it looked cute and since it was a children's book I believed that it would be a fun read for my three children.

About the Book:
Escape into a world of spellbinding adventure, a world where kindness is king, a world where faith and imagination separate life from death, a world where love is the key that unlocks both mystery and magic...Escape into the world of The Crystal Prince.
Jeanette Clinger Hurley transports you to a land where darkness and light are in constant battle, a place where good &evil equally wage war on the heart...challenging both faith and destiny.
Come along and join the charmed prince Xabian and the beautiful Jenevieve on their enchanted and courageous journey, as they discover...The heart is mightier than the sword, that faith conquers fear and that the true magical and transformational miracle of life is simple and pure...That love is the way, love is the only way.
I love this fantasy book, the wonderful story of love and faith intermingle with suspense is what dreams are made of. I love the story between Xabian and Jenevieve, this story is so sweet. I love that her angelic lullaby could calm him and sooth him as he was scared and alone. What a tender story of their love for each other, a love that stood the test of time, the type of love that most girls dream of, and rarely find. The story tells a tale of good and evil, and it is illustrated beautifully in this children's book. I would suggest that this book for older children and not for little ones, unless the parents are actively involved and reading the book with the child.
This book was a fun easy read. I would recommend it but warn parents that some of the names are difficult to pronounce, therefore, be able to assist their child with these words. Otherwise, this is a delightful story.
