Lore, legends, heroes and villains just in time to gift to yourself or someone else for Christmas. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will not disappoint. As a prequel to the 1980's cult classic, The Dark Crystal, author J.M. Lee dives in deeper to provide a thrilling tale. The Heroes of the Resistance is a comprehensive guide to the characters on the Netflix show for Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal. The characters are revealed with a goal for each one, a story to provide more information on each character, a personality description and a physical description. It's a great companion if you watch it on Netflix. My brother saw it and immediately began to read it after exclaiming how cool!

Aughra'sWisdom of Thra is another hardcover book is a collection of quotes from The Dark Crystal. It's a nice companion book as well. It also has beautiful illustrations as does Heroes of the Resistance. 

Shadows of the Dark Crystal is a paperback encompassing 282 action filled pages of adventure. There are many exciting illustrations throughout the novel to add to the storyline by J.M. Lee. The readers gets to dive in and follow the three Gelflings as they venture out in this mystical and mythical world of Thra. If you like fantasy type novels, you will love this one!  If you haven't had a chance to check out the series on Netflix, it will be fun to watch after you read the novel and the two other books. The prequel involves Gelfling, Naia, leaving her home searching for her brother who has been accused by another clan of stealing.
