And here I thought saving one realm was enough to fill up my to-do list.

Following the revelation that the antagonists were after the location of all of Book's genies, my friends and I knew our Wonderland road trip was far from over. With the magic fluctuation event known as the Vicennalia Aurora days away, antagonists and magic hunters hot on our tail, and my treacherous b

The fifth book of the series is the best one I have read so far. The adventure and the fight between protagonists and antagonists continues. Crisa is the most admirable character. The book has action, adventure and lot of mystery. The quest for Excalibur is not easy and the journey is very exciting to read. I love this book and can't wait for the next book. ...more

As one thing after another piles on top of the already ever-expanding quest...the group now makes their way from Oz to Camelot in search of Excalibur.

In order to retrieve the memories that show where the genies of Book are held so they can thwart the antagonists and keep their realm safe ... Crisa, SJ, Blue, Daniel and Jason must journey to Avalon and suffer through peril, chaos, magic hunters, traps, death ... you name it. All in a day's work 🤣🤣

Of course appearances from Bluebeard (so not what

This is the 5th book out of an expected 8th series story. The story is about Crisanta Knight the protagonist who comes from a world called “Book”. This magical world has a mysterious prophet and each book starts with a prologue prophecy.

This is an easy enjoyable book to read. It definitely encompasses adventure and mystery. What happens to Alex, Arian, and Mauvrey in the end? Does The Lady of the Lake send Daniel, Jason, and Crisanta back? What about the Four Waters of Paradise? You have to read

To Death & Back was a thrilling and enchanting YA novel that gave a unique twist to known characters from fairytales. This is book 5 in the series and was my first time reading a book by Geanna. I'm so glad I read this book because it reminded me about how great the YA genre can be!

I loved being introduced to Crisanta Knight. She was powerful, confident, and a leader. In this book, she is on a journey to claim Excalibur. There are lots of scary, magical, and all-around enjoyable moments in this

I really really enjoyed this book!
I got sent it by geanna and hadn't read the first four books but still loved this one. I think because I hadn't read the others it took me a while longer to get into the book but once I did it was pretty fast flowing.
I love all the relationships between characters and I thought the worlds were really cool and I loved the story arc and the ending was really sudden and now I want to read the next book!
I'm a big fan of the Merlin TV show so loved the Camelot settin

The 5th book did not disappoint. There was lots of action, questions answered and questions leaving the reader wanting more. I'm really enjoying Crisanta's adventure even if it's going to take a couple years to finish, I'll be waiting. ...more

I LOVED this!!!! I was so excited to get a copy in the mail from Geanna Culbertson and was so hooked to this the entire time. I enjoyed this book so much and now I need to buy the others in order to fully geek out. The super fun thing about this book series is that you can start at any point in the series. This is the 5th book and the prologue fully explains the past books and I was totally fine reading it.

The plot is GORGEOUS!!! I adored it so much and the characters were stunning. I truly had

Another awesome book from the Crisanta Knight series! The adventures just kept coming one after another and not one disappointed me.

This time the story was mostly set in Camelot as the group of heroes and princesses set out to claim Excalibur. Being a magical and enchanted realm with kings, knights, wizards and witches, the story was definitely very exciting.

It was a fun read with a suspenseful plot that kept me wanting more. A great book to pick up to come out of a reading slump. I would most c

Crisanta Knight: To Death and Back

4 stars

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve read a book I was fully invested in from the very first sentence. Crisanta Knight: To Death and Back changed that. This is the type of book, regardless of age, you will genuinely enjoy reading as I definitely did. It’s one of those feel good books you’ll be reading with a honest smile on your face because of the author’s clever world building and brilliant story telling. I wholeheartedly did not want to mentally leave t

This book takes Crisanta Knight's story and turns up the volume to full blast! It's a race to Excalibur and there's a realm's worth of baddies to outwit on the way - but Crisa always shows up with sass and style!

I couldn't put it down! This new book confronts Crisa with difficult choices between life and death and the opportunity to see the full spectrum of potential in her powers. Now Crisa is asking genuinely intriguing questions about what it means to be a hero and fight for justice.

I tried reading this one a few times, and I simply can't get into it. I was originally lead to believe that this is a YA book, but it feels much more middle grade to me. I don't particularly enjoy the writing style, and the story line is a bit confusing. A lot of characters are introduced at first, and they're hard to keep track of. The whole world really reminded me of the TV show Once Upon a Time. Since my 2020 resolution is to DNF books I simply can't get into, I'm letting this one go. Thank ...more

Continuing Crisanta Knight's quest to save Book and the other realms from the evil magic hunters and antagonists.
Crisa's magic is growing ever stronger and so is her desire to keep the balance and ensure the Pure Magic doesn't take her over and turn her evil. But with so much on the line she needs all her strength and power. Full of mysterious prophecies and dreams of the future, the book keeps you guessing as to what will actually happen.
So much has happened since we met Crisanta as a young sch

The fifth book in the Crisanta Knight series. This book has to be my favorite, but mostly because there are a lot of moments between my favorite ship. There are a lot of things going on in this book with Crisa being hunted by Arian and his goons, facing perilous danger left and right, discovering secrets, and, of course, the retelling of even more fairytales. I absolutely LOVE this book!

Fantastic story

This series is one of the best, I've read in quite some time. I can hardly wait until the next book is published. The story line is amazing and keeps you entertained throughout the book. This is a great twist on old classics.

This was the first book in this series I have read. Crisanmta Knight is on a mission to save Book. The action and adventure kept me on the edge of my seat. I will be buying all the rest of the books in this series!

Cinderella’s kid, combat boots, swords and magic? Sign me up! This book has all the adventure anybody could want! Book is an enchanted realm with the children of our favorite fairy tales; Cinderella, Snow White, Red Riding Hood and more.

This is book 5 in a series and I was thrown right into fighting and excitement. I picked this one because it has a weapon on the front (totally my jam) and more importantly, I couldn’t pass up a story about King Arthur. Which might I add, in my head he totally h
