ARC for Review - Wow! I am majorly impressed by the writing style of this author.. I sense the passion he put into this amazing read... with a crisp, clean, and easy to follow style DC Daines delivers a very adventerous read. Imagine being up against a Foe much larger in size, with a few friends and a not so perfect mode of transportaion... and the fact that you are a half breed will gain even less help..

If you are into sci-fi type reads. Then this is for you. A feline type of race, that is dying out, and its only hope lies in 3 individuals. But, its not so simple, The Company has plans of their own, for this world long forgotten. The characters are VERY interesting, compelling. I can't wait for book 2! 5 of 5 stars!

This hear is great science fiction! A dead world long forgotten and a dying race depend on just three beings to save them and bring a new age of prosperity. However, The Company has other plans and not even those of virtue will stop the evil Lord Dragoon who uses his dark tricks and treachery to control every action of The Company to fit his evil desires.

With diverse characters, solid action, and spectacular dialog The Star Crystal is an awesome and compelling read that will surely lead you to anxiously wait for book two. As an author myself, I find The Star Crystal by D.C. Daines Five Stars and two thumbs up.

This story was short read and something unlike I've ever read. I suppose I didn't know how to take it all in. I have never read a story about Stray-felinehumanoid creatures. The story bases around Scrycher, half breed if will, tainted because he isn't of true blood. But this half breed is to be the hero and save the day....but I won't say if he fulfills his destiny, but i will say he fights like hell for his life and will do anything to fulfill it. The other main character is Teller, he is not a prophect but can reflect and tells stories of the past. These two share a common bond or lineage I should say, whether want it or not. And did Imention this little dragon guy thats like the size of a small dog...always in trouble funny as hell and made me think of a little kid with their hand in the cookie jar with that you dont see me doing this look. This is not a paranormal read but more of a science fiction...traveling through space in a busted up ship going through the stars on an adventure that will keep your attention. But I can't give away too many details...what fun would that be...you gotta read it yourself...

This book is a fast-paced, sci-fi adventure that has it all - drama, conflict, romance, action, fantasy... You feel so strongly for the characters (be it love or hate!) and it leaves you wanting more. Let's hope the next book doesn't leave us waiting too long.

This has to be one of the greatest novels I have read in some time. This is a first look at what promises to be a great series. This is a Sci-Fi story about a dying race of Stray- Feline Humanoids, that seem to be unknowingly dependant on a tainted-blood (half-breed) to save them, and to keep their race alive. This book has it all, it gives glimpses of love, friendship, hatred, greed, humor, and of course a dialogue of Sci-Fi story and action.
Scrycher is the main Character, as a child he learns his destiny and will at all costs try and fulfill it. He has companions: Teller, who is gifted in telling past events, he is much like a fortune teller, except instead of telling your future he can recall any/all events from your past. The next companion is Chelsea, she is very dedicated to Scrycher and will do anything to help him live out his destiny. Blink is his next companion, this little Dragon is amazingly funny and quite gifted. He has a knack for trouble, loves shinies, and is small enough to fit in ones pocket. I have to mention that his name comes from his gift, as he has the ability to Blink from one spot to another.
DC Daines, or Danny, just seems to have an unique ability to putting great thoughts on paper. I have known him for about 2 1/2 years via internet, and he has astonished me from the start. A very down to earth type of guy, that seemingly has held on to the childhood imagination we all once had. Reading Danny's writing unlocks such mental receptivity.

Character profiles

Gunnery “Like taking candy from a baby.”
The Gunnery is like his brother. He has one person in his life that matters. Himself, just don’t stand in his way.
Lord Dragoon “Do not disobey me!” The head of The Company, he has enjoyed many advantages throughout his long life. The Councill is his direct report in theory, though he more then manipulates them into doing what he requires. He has an evil agenda and I pity all that stand in his way, even his son…

About DC Daines

aboutDC
It’s not a man’s thoughts that make him evil.
It’s what he does with those thoughts..

The world of “The Star Crystal” was something that I did not make up. Rather it came to me in a time of need. After many years working in the same job, I turned up to work, got myself stuck in a drum heating oven. Just imagine a massive, double-door steel box. Freaked out with mass claustrophobia and phoned my partner in crime. I can still remember those words, “I know that we have only been here for fifteen minutes, but I really need to go for a break.”
