About Me

An up and coming, new adult, dark fantasy author.

Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Crystal Bourque has been captivated by the fantastic for as long as she can remember. Growing up on children’s classics like, James and the Giant Peach, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Fairy Rebel, she quickly discovered she wanted to try her hand at getting her own daydreams down on the page.

“Crystal Bourque has only been publishing for a few years but already she has a well-deserved fan base. She gives YA readers a run for their money with novels that offer protagonists that feel real, with big problems, and sometimes angry and grim attitudes with which they confront those problems. This is not just the standard happy-despite-it-all fare that’s prevalent in YA publishing. Her worlds are carefully crafted and the plots solid, so give her a try. You won’t regret it.”

– Nancy Kilpatrick author: Thrones of Blood series & Editor: nEvermore! Tales of Murder, Mystery & the Macabre

No Escape (Book 2 in the Book of Eve Series) Paperback

Jordan’s back in the anticipated sequel to Eve’s Return, Book 1 in The Book of Eve Series . . .
With her life turned upside down, Jordan just isn’t willing to let the people she loves get hurt. Not any more. She decides to take matters into her own hands to try and save Greg from taking the blame – no matter the cost. Greg is stuck serving time in Rawridge, Rolling River’s high security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. While he blames Jordan for everything that’s happened, The Voice in his head seems to have other ideas . . . Still reeling from those same events, Owen is haunted by visitations from his ex-boyfriend (and Jordan’s twin brother) Parker. When Levi reveals himself as the puppet master behind Parker’s instructions, Owen is faced with a difficult decision: can he trust Levi enough to help him save the ones he loves?
