a Pirate, bound by a centuries-old oath
As Keeper of the Seahorse Legacy, Cazien de Pollis is a King among pirates, divinely appointed to dispense justice on the seas. Bound by the sacred oath of a long-dead ancestor, he must fulfill a contract to wed the green-eyed Oracle's Daughter named therein-or risk losing everything he and his people hold dear. But at nineteen, with the identity of his betrothed only recently revealed, Cazien resents the contract-and the urgency within him to see it satisfied.
a Knight, determined to prove her calling
Erielle de Gladiel returned from the quest for the Remedy, changed. Not only are her formerly-blue eyes now a brilliant shade of green, but she must don gloves to hide inky evidence that her prophetically-bestowed title, the Oracle's Daughter, demands more from her than the task already completed. Erielle's dearest-held dream is realized when she is knighted by her King, but unbeknownst to her, that very honor jeopardizes the prophesied purpose to which she and Cazien have been called.
a Legacy, demanding surrender
Just as Cazien summons the courage to collect his bride, dark rumors and darker deeds crawl up the coasts, calling its guardians, the Seahorse Pirates, into action-and Cazien away from Erielle. But even though the Oracle's Daughter knows nothing of the contract to which she has been consigned, Cazien's enemies have somehow learned of his interest in Erielle. And if they reach her before his ancestor's weighty oath is executed, the Seahorse Legacy will be forfeited . . . and darkness will be given reign.
The third book in this series-within-a series, The Seahorse Legacy begins an epic tale of piracy, adventure, and romance. Giving subtle nods to several fairy tales, including an unexpected twist to the story of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, this romantic adventure will conclude in Eyes of E'veria, Book 4: The Sunken Realm , coming in 2015.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Seahorse Legacy has a gripping, well-conceived storyline which satisfies all expectations created in the preceding instalments. This is a book to be savoured, one which allows you to take a journey with its characters, laughing, crying, despairing and exulting right alongside them. Indeed, the characters in this tale have a realness to them; their imperfections are credible and relatable, and, furthermore, are dealt with in a constructive way. Fantasy elements are well imagined and form an integral part of the story rather than being random flights of imagination which are arbitrarily crammed in for the sake of themselves (as is sometimes the case in this genre). Combined with the skill of a wordsmith who is able to paint vivid scenes in the minds of her readers, this makes the book a delight to get lost in. To someone who has grown up with the truths of Christianity ingrained in thought-pattern and psyche—and who therefore often succumbs to the effect of truths losing their piercing power due to a high level of familiarity—books of this kind are very valuable. By taking these truths out of the realm of the familiar and embedding them in one of fantasy, one is enabled to take a step back and, for a moment, glimpse them afresh from an almost-objective third-person point of view, imparting a newness that makes them striking again. I walked away with a fresh sense of amazement at the mercy, grace and love of our God!
