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.

I'm only going to put this with three stars, and here's why: This is a published fanfiction, and that's not cool. I'm probably only going to say that once. It has a bunch of copyright infringements, or so my dad explained so many times, and apparently there's a law somewhere about something so 12 year olds can't publish things about video games. I dunno. I wasn't paying that much attention. Whatever. Okay. Moving on. This book is about a new hero, also named link, who goes on yet another journey with midna, and does all that other Link & Zelda stuff. So that already happened. This was like a mix of all the games, except for the part where they explain over and over again that Majora's mask was the first zelda game, and that's a lie. Whatever. It was actually a lot like the game, even up to the parts where I'm very bored of listening to everyone talk. Lol. I guess that's not a great thing for a book. Anyways. I got this book on Smashwords, and it was free, obviously. I probably wouldn't buy it, but some people like LOZ more than me, by a lot. Check it out.
(Check out my new and improved blog! I'll just leave this link here for you. To click. You know, just if you want to, lol.)
