Bloodmaiden: A Fantasy Anthology by Christine E. Schulze
Pub. Date: April 10th, 2010
For, you see, I am the new Quelda of Tynan." These words echo the mystery, horror, romance, and redemption found throughout the stories of Schulze's fantasy anthology. A young woman and young boy must choose to embrace cruel tradition, run from it, or stand against it. A Scintillate princess must defy her only sister and sacrifice all to save the one she loves. A captain braves tempestuous seas to rescue Larimar, his gem of the sea. A blind girl unravels the mystery of the one who grants her sight in dreams and whom can hear her heart's song. A young Elemental survives many dangerous ventures to discover true freedom. All of these and more weave together to create a truly powerful collection.
Tears of a Vampire Prince: The First Krystine
by Christine E. Schulze
Synopsis via author
This short but powerful novella chronicles the early life of Aaryn, who, in mourning the recent death of his wife, Chrystine, reflects upon the girl whose name and healing nature made him fall in love with his wife at their first meeting—the other Krystine, his first love, a lovely, innocent, child-like Veela.
In remembering her, he recounts his early ventures—how he became the very first vampire, how he protected her from the lusts of the Princes of Night and struggled to protect her from himself, how he was forcibly drug into a mission in search for the One who could overthrow the evil of the Enchantress who created him—and how all these tales and misadventures weave together to tell the story of a love so beautiful and yet sorrowful, brimming with both hope and hopelessness.
A tale of mystery, adventure, and passion, Aaryn’s story echoes the unbreakable love and eternal bond between two immortals.
Truly, this is the saddest vampire tale ever told.
