"My heart was not broken, so do not think to fix it. I did rescue you. And I will care for you. But I will never fall in love with you."
Thus Sir Kaos Jaspar declares to Evren, the young damsel he rescues from the slave market on his journey south. Always south. Evren doesn't understand why he is so focused on the south, or what made the scars on his arms-or what created the bigger scars on his heart, the ones that keep him from opening his heart to anyone, including her. She doesn't even really understand why he saved her in the first place. All she understands is that she wants desperately to save him in return.
Impossible, it seems. But Kaos is not the only one with secrets. There is more than meets the eye with Evren as well. More that has to do with the way she can see in the dark, make wishes on a sunset gemstone, and tell stories about a mysterious people who live in the stars.
Sometimes, all it takes is just a little bit of faith and a wish upon a star to bring love and healing to life.
What Readers Are Saying
"One Starry Knight was an unexpectedly sentimental book and one that I would read again. It's simplicity gave it a certain beauty and truthfulness not often found and it's ending had me more than a little willing to read more of Schulze's novels."
~ Savannah Sutton, Goodreads
"I'm not a fan of romantic stories, but I really did enjoy this one. I didn't expect the ending at all! I liked the theme of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances throughout, and Kaos was a fascinating character. I appreciated the author's decision to keep us readers guessing about his dark past until the end."
~ Sarah Jolly, Goodreads
"Sort of like Tangled. Absolutely stunning, there are little words which can describe the sort of emotion that this story invokes...Miss Schulze has been known to write fantastical stories that have the feel of adventure and always ends with the soul of redemption, this goes a little deeper than that especially being a story that is so personal to the author. It allows you to see the soul of who she is as a person and I think that is very special...This is more than a love story or a tale of forgiveness, this is the heart of a talented and beautiful person laid bare for others to see, and I think that is a very brave thing for someone to do. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone I can because it is worth reading, thank you so much, Miss Schulze, for blessing this mortal plane with your ethereal stories, whatever doubt plagues you about the success of this story is false for you have made something that will be remembered for ages to come."
~ Alyssa, Amazon
"C.E. Schulze has a writing style that puts you into the story! In One Starry Knight, Schulze transports you to a fantasy world that is so beautifully described you don't have to work hard to imagine what the characters see...Whether you are a reader in love, a reader dealing with heartbreak, a reader afraid to love, or a reader anywhere in between, read this book!...Let Schulze's words describe to you one of the most beautiful and sometimes devastating aspects of humanity... LOVE!"
~ BethanyS, Amazon

About the Author
One of her main aspirations for The Amielian Legacy is to create grand fantasy adventures with characters that connect with readers from many different backgrounds. She has always believed strongly in including diversity in her books; right now her focus is on including racial diversity and characters with developmental disabilities. The latter is inspired by Schulze working with adults with autism and other developmental disabilities at Trinity Services in Southern Illinois. She also donates 25% of all royalties to ALFA, a local charity that supports many of Trinity's programs.
Some of her exciting ventures include the publication of her award-winning Bloodmaiden, as well as The Stregoni Sequence and The Chronicles of the Mira with Writers-Exchange in both paperback and electronic forms. Her published books for younger readers include In the Land of Giants, The Amazing K, and The Adventures of William the Brownie.
Her most recent project includes the professional re-editing and remastering of two YA fantasy series, The Gailean Quartet and The Hero Chronicles, the latter of which will be released under the new name A Shadow Beyond Time. For this series, she has also brought an amazing new co-author onto her team, Kira Lerner, whom she has used many a time as her editor for other works.
Christine currently lives in Belleville, IL, but you can visit her on her website:
