The Crystal Series Boxed Set: A Christian Romantic Thriller Series (Books 1 - 3: Searchlight, Surrender & Insurrection)

A collection of the first three books in the dazzling Crystal Series, from Amazon Bestselling Author Dayo Benson. Expect glamor, nail-biting tension and gritty suspense.

Follow Crystal as she battles for freedom from celebrity cult, the S.O.T., and forms a team of ex-S.O.T. members, including a male model and the lead singer of a boyband, to bring the S.O.T. down. Will they succeed, or are they too spoiled to pay the price?

Searchlight

A heart-rending tragedy. A passionate love. A firm resolution.

Ambition

For as long as Crystal remembers, she has wanted to be a singer.

For as long as she remembers, her parents have feared the SOT, a celebrity cult that will make you famous, but destroy you in the process.

When Luke, leader of the SOT, sets his sights on Crystal will she have the courage to stand her ground, or will she give in?

Destruction

After the SOT deals a deadly blow, Crystal has no choice but to obey their orders to sign up for Searchlight. Searchlight is the biggest talent show on TV. With the SOT's backing, Crystal could win, but is she willing to pay the price? When she unexpectedly finds love, she is afraid that darkly handsome Juda could become an SOT target too.

At Searchlight, her dreams and nightmares collide. According to Juda, it's the darkest places that need light the most, but the SOT is much darker than Crystal imagined.

Heartbreak

Not everything is what it seems to be, and not everyone is who they say they are. Crystal is tough, but she's only human. There's only so much heartache and betrayal one girl can take.

Then she is tested and forced to make a choice.

It's a choice between light and darkness.

Good and evil.

Faith and despair.

Choosing God could mean choosing death.

Surrender

Everyone has a limit...

...and Crystal is steadily getting closer to hers. She thought she could escape the SOT, but now they have her and there seems to be no way out. Some people think she has everything, but she knows she has nothing. Is she ever going to break free? And is the mysterious Juda a friend or foe?

Everyone is scared of something...

...and fear itself is the worst enemy of all. Crystal wants to hold on, but her fears enable the SOT to drag her to darker depths than she ever thought possible; depths from which she must claw her way back if she is ever going to regain her freedom.

The pressure is on, and Crystal must either fight or be broken. It all comes down to one question: Who will she surrender to?

Insurrection

The Determination of a Victim.

Crystal has survived eighteen months of trauma at the hands of the SOT. She now has two options: she can either fade into obscurity, or fight. She chooses to fight--along with her team of unlikely alliances. But as their plans come together, doubts are never far away. Can she really trust her team, or will they give up at the first hurdle? And, are they on a suicide mission, or can they really bring down the SOT?

Crystal will stop at nothing to achieve her aim, but she must pay a high price, and decide whether the cost is worth it.

The Lucifer Letters: The Devil's Battleplan

The shop, located in the heart of the old city, was filled with the odour of books; that curious, heady cocktail of woody, smoky essence with an unmistakeable tinge of vanilla. In the far corner of a dark basement room, I discovered a section that contained some large, water-stained volumes in very poor condition, some without their covers, and there were many loose pages and folio leaves lying about all over the floor.

Amongst this veritable treasure of old documents, I came across a collection of letters that appeared to be hand-written on tattered paper, yellowed with time. As I picked up the first letter, the document fell apart into a number of separate pieces in my hands, so brittle and fragile was the paper. The ink was very feint and the archaic script was extremely difficult to read, even more so than you might at first suppose, as the words were composed entirely of consonants. But even as I began to decipher the first few paragraphs an eerie feeling came over me.

The text was like nothing I had ever encountered.
