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

Chrystine 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 Chrystine your typical elf. She was the Golden Healer, and she alone could save the Stregoni Benefici from the Dark Enchantress. But can Chrystine figure out the Dark Enchantress' secret and defeat the evil vampires without destroying the good ones as well, without destroying Aaryn? Can Chrystine unravel the dark secret Aaryn keeps so carefully guarded and show him that by choosing to serve good instead of evil, he is still capable of being loved and his past is forgiven?

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

Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress is the first book in ‘The Amielian Legacy: The Stregony Sequence’ series by Christine Schulze. Enchanting and intriguing story that delves into fantasy mixed with the supernatural.

I loved the characters in this book, especially the female and male protagonists, Chrystine and Aaryn. Chrystine is an elf living in the human world where bumping into other fantasy and supernatural creatures is the norm. Aaryn is Chrystine’s neighbor and they soon become firm friends along with Chrystine’s other friends, Grace and Sarah (humans). Life is as normal as it can be until Chrystine’s birthday when he father gives her a gift that pin points her as a target for the Dark Enchantress.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book but at the same time it was a very predictable plot for me personally. I think this book would be more suits to young teens. I loved Schulze’s take on vampires and their history. It was very unique and look forward to reading more about them in ‘Tears of a Vampire Prince’.
