The Crystal Rings by Christine E. Schulze

Three stories. Four princesses. Yet all are bound by the fate of two crystal rings.

From YA Fantasy and Christian Fantasy author comes a new collection set on the Isle of Spaniño where magic awaits around every corner.

In "Time Dancers," eighteen-year-old Calina's one wish as she turns "of age" is to marry a young, kind, handsome prince whom she can love and share all of her passions and interests with. Thus, she is upset when her father reveals her betrothed as a quiet, middle-aged man. She is further hurt and insulted when her husband-to-be bestows on her a magic mirror, inside which she watches herself dance with a handsome, young prince each night. However, through that mirror and the aid of a unique crystal ring, she will discover her true love, and what truly loving means.

In "Silver Prince," Catina dares to enter the Dark Wood against her brother's warnings. Instead of danger, she meets Hadyn, Alpha of the Wolfsbane people. Through him, she will discover love, but also the truth behind years of lies and twisted legends. Will she be strong enough to learn that truth? And if so, what will she do with it?

Finally, in "Sisters of the Rings," Calista and Shara are the only two Iceans in the entire Spaniño Isle--possibly in the entire world. When their kingdoms fall under siege, both princesses are forced to flee their Spaniño homes. They meet with each other only to discover that they are linked by the crystal rings given them by their adoptive parents in ways they never could have imagined....

Revel in the magic and romance found in the adventures of these four princesses, and discover how they are bound together by The Crystal Rings.

About the Author

Christine E. Schulze has been living in castles, exploring magical worlds, and creating fantastical romances and adventures since she was too young to even write of such stories. Her collection of YA, MG, and children's fantasy adventure books, The Amielian Legacy, is comprised of series and stand-alone books that can all be read separately but also weave together to create a single, amazing fantasy.  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: (Or facebook): (And there’s always Goodreads): (And of course fanmail is the best stuff ever and is greatly appreciated!): ~ or ~ 18 Archview Drive Belleville, IL 62221
