Author, Valerie Pike, has released her audio book, Crimson and the Battle of Lonely Mountain, narrated by Tracy Turner, on Author's Republic Platform.

This book is fantastic, so much fun to see my daughter eating it up and she loves anything fairytale but she got inspired with this one as the story of Good and evil does take you through the journey of life and helps to dig into oneself a bit and learn some lessons. Great Read, my daughter said if there were 6 stars, she would give this book 6 stars.
