Price: $3.92
A species saved but at what cost? Child of the light, Gabriel, can no longer bear the annihilation – Gabriel's tears of despair increase as the Gods’ thirst for human blood escalates. He begins a grief-filled quest through time to save his beloved humans, but Gabriel tears are not shed in vain. They transform into protective and powerful stones for the humans, striking fear into the hearts of the mighty Gods. The opening part of the Panopticon series, The Recidivist, is an exploration of religious, moral and political ethics throughout history, and across alternative worlds. This story ‘gets up close and personal’ with historical characters – the result being a unique re-imagining of ancient myths and legends. It is the prequel to The Penitentiary. Forthcoming releases in the series include The Crusades and The Helotry.

    Cristina's third novel is a pearl of a story. I was instantly drawn in by the 'mystery' observer's perspective that opened the story and remained intrigued throughout. I felt this particular character's perspective could have been read literally or as a high-level conceptual parable (or perhaps both) - either way, it was brilliant. The other key characters Cristina has offered and their journeys are rich with thought-provoking messages on a range of ethical dilemmas, many of which can translate to modern life. I was amazed by Cristina's reimaginings of key historical events and myths and legends. This fantasy/speculative fiction novel is elegant and self-contained. Cristina certainly knows how to end a story in a way that leaves any reader satisfied - I was blown away by it.
