In the course of cleaning it, she releases Zuran, a genie cursed within the crystal. Zuran dislikes all women and when Celeste frees him from his prison he shows those feelings by changing Celeste's appearances to suit him. Considering the story starts with a very strong female voice his changes don't go over so well. Come to find out a female genie, Atia, imprisoned him and he is really angry at her. Celeste has three wishes and three days to make them, but must make at least one wish every twenty-four hours or 'poof' Zuran is trapped back into the crystal.
Her first wish leads to the 'oh my god what are we going to do now' moment. Her second leads to 'bring it on' all the way up to 'oh my god, I'm about to have my head handed to me-I have to do something' point of the story. And her third leads to 'I thought I was doing the right thing, but I'm a damsel in distress' point. But the strength of voice and imagery for the characters isn't consistent. One of the biggest issues I had was that it was never made clear if Celeste reverted to her original appearance. In spite of these issues, I would like to see what becomes of Atia and her relationship, as well as Celeste's sister.
Have you ever wished you could find a magic lamp and-- poof! She polishes off a fingerprint marring the surface and a man-all granite hard muscle and starkly sensual good looks-appears before her. As soon as Zurvan sees Celeste. He was imprisoned, tortured and cursed by Atia, a woman who claims she loves him yet punishes him because he can't love her back.
When they both fall prey to the white hot attraction between them, Zurvan promises her the greatest pleasure she will ever experience. Celeste figures that if that's love, who needs it? What their behavior has really convinced her of, though, is that there's no way she would ever be able to recognize real love. Now she knows that when he returns to his imprisonment in the crystal-and there is nothing she can do to stop it-she will be left to endure a life of interminable loneliness missing the man she was meant to be with forever.

I knew the author's name and the summary sounded interesting so I decided to give Crystal Genie a try. I've been pleasantly surprised and I wish I would have known what I'd been missing sooner!
Crystal Genie is a creative, really fun read. This story is erotic and explicit throughout the book, but Ms. Carew makes it work in a perfect manner. I wouldn't want it any other way. She's quite a descriptive author and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. This is NOT your average genie story.
I loved the ending as it's quite funny and surprising at the same time. Rated 5 Delightful Divas by Shelly! Celeste has just released Zurvan, the genie of the crystal, from his imprisonment. Zurvan must grant whomever the crystals deem worthy three wishes, yet when he sees it is a woman that has released him he becomes angry. A woman only reminds him of Atia the woman who trapped him in the crystal to begin with. Will Celeste and Zurvan find true love or will he keep up the walls around his heart? This book pulled me in right from the start.
Crystal Mirror pt.1
I loved the bond of love and trust that developed between Zurvan and Celeste. Zurvan is a great hero who loves with his whole heart and would give up his life for those he cares about. Celeste is a strong woman who fights for what she loves not caring what will happen to her. The love that these two share is a once in a lifetime thing that many of us crave to find.
As the book goes on we see the love that they have shine through it all. Even the evil Atia may find peace after all these years. With a few unexpected twists this book is a good read and should not be missed. Opal Carew writes a magical story about true love, keeping the reader enthralled until the end. If you enjoy a tale full of love and magic this is one you are sure to like. Celeste never thought when she bought the beautiful crystal that she would be getting three wishes along with some really hot lovin' in the form of a genie.
Zurvan the genie is larger than life to Celeste, and he wants her to "help" him out with a little itch he has had for 30 centuries. Celeste can't help but wonder at the deja vu feeling she gets when she looks at Zurvan; she feels like she has been with him before. Zurvan is about to serve up a shock; they have a love that has endured centuries, but can they finally be together?
Crystal Genie is a cute fantasy come to life. This is a feel good story about everlasting love.

This is not your typical fairy tale. Zurvan is all red-hot male. He has many dimensions, and the reader will enjoy them all from his rock hard body to his emotional feelings. Celeste is an interesting character. I loved her immediately when I read that she had violet hair with magenta.

I found that she had a nice depth beneath the outside veneer. She is caring, loving, and a strong female presence. There is an underlying complex story of betrayal and eternal love that adds a nice dimension to the overall story. The sexual encounters are erotically enticing and will have the reader panting for more.
This is my first novel by Ms. Carew, and I am happy I took the time to read it. She has a great way with words and imagination. I look forward to reading more by this talented author. Zurvan, the genie, was trapped in the stone for 30 centuries by another djinn, a woman, who wanted Zurvan's love and when she couldn't get it, punished him by imprisoning him in the stone and forcing him to grant each master the one who called him out of the stone three wishes Crystal Genie has its basis on Aladdin's story, but that's as far as it goes.
And no, the extremely hot and wonderful sex wasn't part of the wishes. It was freely given by Zurvan who ached for Celeste, having gone without a woman for three thousand years. And in the process, they discovered something wonderful about each other, something that I couldn't say because it would be a spoiler. All I can say is that love makes everything worth it, whatever the outcome, and the end came with a twist that would make you smile, although it did raise up a question in my mind because it was a bit inconsistent with some of the other facts.

When she tries to clean it, to her shock a genie appears. Zurvan, the genie of the crystal has been trapped inside for centuries at the whim of a woman, a more powerful genie whose advances he refused. The last thing Zurvan wants is to be under the command of another woman, but Zurvan gets the shock of his life when he realizes Celeste is the reincarnation of the woman he once loved who was ripped away from him.
I loved the writing and the premise and if I may be frank the sex scenes were hot. However, I missed an emotional connection between Celeste and Zurvan that went beyond the awesome sex. Without giving anything away, I was expecting something more complex with a harder resolution where Celeste and Zurvan had to fight more. Oct 31, Romancing the Book rated it liked it Shelves: I found it interesting that Celeste was absorbed by the crystal and part of her knew that life as she knew it was going to change.
Crystal Genie had a twist from the normal genie in a bottle story. This genie was in a crystal, and there is a time limit on the wishes. Celeste has only three days to make the three wishes, which was interesting. If you were put on the spot like Celeste would you be able to come up with your wishes?

Zuran, the Genie, was dif Reviewed by Marissa: Zuran, the Genie, was different. He left me with mixed feelings. He had a dislike for women and changed Celeste to suit him. Overall, I found Crystal Genie to be a great read. I enjoyed the relationship between Celeste and Zuran and watching them react to each other. However it left me wondering if Celeste was returned to her original appearance or not. The only thing I would have liked for Crystal Genie to have more of was more of an emotional connection between the characters.
