The Stregony Sequence Book 1: Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress

Overview

He leaned his head close to my ear and whispered, "Are you afraid?"

Emma had had more reason than any other time of her life, even when facing one of the rampages of her drunken father. But she wasn't afraid. And that was odd, because although Aaryn, the person asking her that question, was her best friend, he was also a vampire. In fact, she was surrounded by hundreds of vampires.

But they weren't your typical vampires. They were Stregoni ...

Overview

He leaned his head close to my ear and whispered, "Are you afraid?"

Emma had had more reason than any other time of her life, even when facing one of the rampages of her drunken father. But she wasn't afraid. And that was odd, because although Aaryn, the person asking her that question, was her best friend, he was also a vampire. In fact, she was surrounded by hundreds of vampires.

But they weren't your typical vampires. They were Stregoni Benefici, the good kind. Nor was Emma your typical fairy. She was the Golden Healer, and she alone could save the Stregoni Benefici from the Dark Enchantress. But can Emma figure out the Dark Enchantress' secret and defeat the evil vampires without destroying the good ones as well, without destroying Aaryn?

Find out as you read for yourself the story of the first vampire.

    Good, clean story!

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Dawn

    The book is fast paced and quite fun to read. It's not overly descriptive in the beginning which is a huge plus for me. I was well into the plot by page 15.

    I enjoyed the vampire lore and the differences in Schulze's world of vampires. Aaryn is a fairy/vampire but he doesn't drink blood. Instead, they drink an elixir and refrain from biting others. He is over 1000 years old, part of the Stregony Benefici who kill evil vampires. Their mission is to protect the Golden Healer so that the Golden Healer can defeat the Dark Enchantress.

    Chrystine is being raised by her father who is an abusive alcoholic. I respect the way Schulze handled such a touchy subject and that she was even willing to go there.

    I thought Chrystine would be a boring character, but at second glance I see a deeply layered young woman. She's a people pleaser because of the abuse, she's not judgmental of Aaryn or other beings different from her. Chrystine has a quiet strength and looks within herself for answers. She even rescues Aaryn at one point in the story.

    The book has religious undertones but Shculze doesn't overdo it. Faith, prayer and God's plan are spoken of often.

    Some of the book was slightly reminiscent of the Harry Potter world, but not enough so that I felt it was a rip-off. twilight was mentioned which cracked me up!

    I like the book and I definitely want to read the follow-up. It's a good clean story. I think it's perfect for young impressionable girls.
