Sam’s Quest for the Crimson Crystal by Ben Furman

Samantha Mae Costas “Sam” is nobody’s idea of a hero. She is constantly teased about her thick glasses, her small size, and her asthma attacks are embarrassing and difficult to control.

When Sam is forced to spend the summer on her grandpa’s farm she thinks things can’t get much worse.

Deep in the caverns below the farm, Prince Buznor, a young Awok, is on a life-and-death mission to save his world. He has to find Sam and prove to her that only she can find and control the Crimson Crystal… the one weapon that can defeat the evil threatening his people.

To reach the Crimson Crystal Sam must journey through the hostile Land of Geffen, face hordes of catacomb dwarfs, vicious vampire bats and deadly monsters. Can Sam overcome her fears, her doubts, and find the Crimson Crystal in time to save the Awokian world?

  1. I read the first in the Sam’s Quest series and found it excellent. Gripping plot, good action, believable characters and crisp writing. What more? Hey, more in the series, please.
