A Pirate, bound by a centuries-old oath -- a Knight, determined to prove her calling -- a Legacy, demanding surrender
As Keeper of the Seahorse Legacy, Cazien de Pollis is a King among pirates, divinely appointed to dispense justice on the seas. Bound by the sacred oath of a long-dead ancestor, he must fulfill a contract to wed the green-eyed Oracle’s Daughter named therein—or risk losing everything he and his people hold dear. But at nineteen, with the identity of his betrothed only recently revealed, Cazien resents the contract—and the urgency within him to see it satisfied.
Erielle de Gladiel returned from the quest for the Remedy, changed. Not only are her formerly-blue eyes now a brilliant shade of green, but she must don gloves to hide inky evidence that her prophetically-bestowed title, the Oracle’s Daughter, demands more from her than the task already completed. Erielle’s dearest-held dream is realized when she is knighted by her King, but unbeknownst to her, that very honor jeopardizes the prophesied purpose to which she and Cazien have been called.
Just as Cazien summons the courage to collect his bride, dark rumors and darker deeds crawl up the coasts, calling its guardians, the Seahorse Pirates, into action—and Cazien away from Erielle. But even though the Oracle’s Daughter knows nothing of the contract to which she has been consigned, Cazien’s enemies have somehow learned of his interest in Erielle. And if they reach her before his ancestor’s weighty oath is executed, the Seahorse Legacy will be forfeited . . . and darkness will be given reign.
The third book in this series-within-a series, The Seahorse Legacy begins an epic re-imagining of the classic Grimm fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princesses which will conclude in Eyes of E’veria, Book 4: The Sunken Realm, coming in 2015.
Want to dive deeper into the world of E'veria? Look for the first two-book set in the Eyes of E'veria series by Serena Chase! The Ryn (book 1) and The Remedy (book 2) retell the classic Grimm fairy tale Snow White & Rose Red on an inspirational and epic scale.
Wow. I did not want this story to end. By far my favorite of the Eyes Of E’veria series, The Seahorse Legacy delivers a fun, enchanting adventure. Hints of the relationship between Captain Cazien and Lady Erielle begin in The Remedy and fully unfold in this engaging tale. Lady Erielle is a heroine with courage and humble heart, a wonderful role model for young girls. Of course, this gets her into trouble and the consequences of her choices lead her to some harsh consequences, which the author boldly explores.
Beautifully written, this novel exemplifies Christian fantasy at its best but even those who aren’t believers will enjoy the story. The seahorse pirates are awesome and I especially enjoyed the relationship between Cazien and the giant seahorses with manes of kelp! Humor weaves through the dialogue between Erielle and Cazien and gives us a hint of the fun to come in the next book. Unfortunately we have to wait until summer 2015 to find out what happens. UGH.
Seriously, you don’t want to miss out on this enchanting series. The book is clean with sweet romance, solid moral values, adventure, integrity and minimal violence (although there is some and Erielle is not immune to it). Pick up a copy and be swept away by the Seahorse Legacy!
