Hi everyone! Today I have the pleasure of participating in The Seahorse Legacy blog hop. The Seahorse Legacy is the third book in the Eyes of E’veria series, but it is the first book in a mini series within the series.
Let me say this: I really enjoyed this book. It is a pirate fantasy with a young lady knight thrown in. Curious? Just read my review below and don’t forget to enter both raffles for a chance to win books and pirate prizes!
Cazien is the captain of the Seahorse Pirates and holder of his family’s Legacy, a legacy that gives him special abilities linked to the sea and binds him to a secret oath, one that chose his bride for him hundreds of years before he was born. Of course, being a pirate, he doesn’t like to be told what to do, or in this case, who to marry.
Eirelle is the first woman to ever be knighted in Everia, an honor she has desired ever since she was a child. But little does she know her allegiance is owed to another country, one bound by marriage: her marriage.
Everything is at stake for Cazien. He must woo and wed Eirelle (or just grab her and run) in order to fulfill his family’s oath. If he doesn’t wed her, not only will he lose his abilities through the seahorse legacy, the people of his island country will be captured and all of Everia will be at risk.
But how do you get a pirate to do what he doesn’t want to do?
I loved The Seahorse Legacy. I also loved Serena’s first two books (check out my reviews here: The Ryn and The Remedy), but I have to say I liked this one a little more. What can I say? I’m more of a pirate lover than a knight lover :). Both Cazien and Erielle are mixed characters: good, but flawed. And I liked that.
I also loved the connection Cazien has with the sea. As a sea-loving woman, I would love to have his abilities, or to even sail on his ship.
This is the first book in a two book series, so it does end without everything resolved. But that only makes me want the next book now!

Oh, I just realized this was book three. No wonder I’ve overlooked it in the past. I must read the other two first! 🙂
They’re great, but I liked this one a little bit better 🙂
This one was my favorite of the 3 as well! Great review!
On one of the giveaways, it says leave a blog post comment. I’m assuming I do that here…
What is your favorite re-telling of a fairy tale? &/OR Who is your favorite fictional pirate?
My favorite re-telling of Peter Pan would be the movie Hook.
I believe my favorite pirate would be Erak from John Flanagan’s Ranger’s Apprentice series.
Hope I get the books (either through Amazon or the contest 🙂 )!
And I just have to say, Mrs. Busse: love the Follower of the Word series, and am really looking forward to Heir of Hope.
Melanie Dickerson has some great fairy tale retellings. I’ve reviewed two of her books here on my site (The Healer’s Apprentice and The Merchant’s Daughter). She takes a story, then asks how would it have happened in our world and during our history. Love it!
As far as pirates, if I can’t choose Cazien, then I’ll choose Hook from Once Upon a Time.
Glad you’re excited about Heir of Hope! I will be turning in my finished manuscript next week and hopefully will know the official release date soon after. Judging by how my critique partners reacted, it will be worth the wait!
By the way, I just set up a newsletter so you can find out all the latest news on my books. The link is to the right of my blog >>>>>>>>
I really liked the first 2 and I am looking forward to #3. It’s going to be my vacation read this summer!
It’s a great beach read 😉
