Princess Una of Parumvir has come of age and will soon marry. She dreams of a charming prince, but when her first suitor arrives, he's not what she'd hoped. Prince Aethelbald of mysterious Farthestshore has travelled a great distance to prove his love--and also to bring hushed warnings of danger. A dragon is rumored to be on the hunt and blazing a path of terror.
Una, smitten instead with a more dashing prince, refuses Aethelbald's offer--and ignores his cautions with dire consequences. Soon the Dragon King himself is in Parumvir and Una, in giving her heart away unwisely, finds herself in his sights. Only those courageous enough to risk everything have a hope of fighting off this advancing evil.
Well, hearing a whole bunch of fellow bloggers raving of the Tales of Goldstone Wood series, I decided to give it a try! In short, it was a very good book.
The beginning of this book was very slow, the actual "story" starting around page 150. So, up until then, I really wasn't all that impressed. But, I like books where the story starts within the first few chapters.
Once the actual "story" got started, I found it very hard to put the book down! This book is full of intriguing fantasy and is completely clean! I don't want to spoil anything for those of you that haven't read it, so I won't talk too much about it.
The characters in this book are awesome! Una is a fabulous main character and is hopelessly romantic. She has plenty of internal conflict, questioning her dream of falling in love. The Prince of Farthestshore is a mysterious character with secrets and is full of love!
I encourage you to read this book!
