Magic, humor, and adventure on the high seas come together in this YA fantasy. More than just a pirate adventure, The Pirates of Meleeon is also a story of love, faith, and hope.
Elia Roquette is fascinated by the charming stranger, Captain Jack Rocket, and not because he has purple hair. After all, so does she, being a princess of the Meleeon Archipelago. This new stranger is both more and less of a stranger than Elia realizes, for his name isn't really Jack Rocket. It's James Roquette. He's not really a captain of one of her father's ships but of the magical Sun Catcher, the most notorious pirate ship in the waters of the Meleeon Archipelago. He longs for the quiet, respectable life of a gentleman as much as she longs for a life of freedom and adventure outside the palace walls.
Together, can they recapture the Moon Vessel and rescue Elia's fiancée, Nicolai, while unraveling the dark secrets of their past? And can Elia show James that it's not through material wealth and stability that true peace is found, but through inner peace of the heart and soul?
What Readers Are Saying
"The content of this story is just exceptional, the author has such a way of subtle messages of self growth and Christian influence within her story that ties it all together and really brings a sense of excitement to the reader as it brings the characters together even if they are from two different worlds...it is a story all its own which is just as riveting as any of the other stories that the wonderful author has created, the cover of the story also helps give a sort of hint about the content of the story and how the two worlds are about to go head to head then merge together. It is also a story of faith and finding a light of hope even in the darkest times."

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.
