It is said she will bring balance and peace to the dark and mortal realms, but there are other stories as well, stories of the Crystal Goddess obliterating his race.
Destiny Rue has always feared the family curse: insanity. So when she meets handsome businessman Kade Sharpe she attributes the vivid fantasies, and worse yet voices, to the onset of her dreaded family legacy. Then Kade shares a tale about an Ash Demon Warrior blackmailed into saving the Crystal Goddess, a healer of legend who could destroy his kind. Suddenly, everything Destiny has believed about her life is shattered.
The formerly fragile Destiny considers the magnitude of her legacy. If she IS the Crystal Healer, how will she chose between the life of the man who's changed her entire world and the balance between good and evil?
