"Dragonwitch" Review


About the Book
Submissive to her father's will, Lady Leta of Aiven travels far to meet the future King of the North Country and a prospective husband she neither knows nor loves.
 
But within the walls of his castle, all is not right. Vicious night terrors plague Lord Alistair. Whispers rise from the family crypt. The reclusive castle Chronicler, Leta's tutor and friend, possesses a secret so dangerous it could cost his life and topple the entire nation.
 
And far away in a hidden kingdom, a flame burns atop the Citadel of the Living Fire. Acolytes and priestesses serve their goddess to the limits of their lives and deaths. No one is safe while the Dragonwitch searches for the sword that slew her twice...and for the hero who can wield it.


My Review
This took me a little while to read.  I was really busy, but I finished it the first day on vacation.  Oh man was it good.  :)  Goldstone Wood becomes more magical with each book.  The first line of the book is absolutely amazing.  I laughed.  I cried.  Now please go read the book.  :)

About the Author
My PhotoAnne Elisabeth is the award-winning author of the Tales of Goldstone Wood, a series of fantasy adventure novels told in the classic Fairy Tale style. She is married to the handsome man she met at fencing class and lives with him, a gaggle of cats, and one long-suffering dog in NC.

    I still have yet to read Starflower, but I have so much excitement for this series. I have Starflower on my nook, and hopefully I'll be doing a groupread for it soon.

      Starflower is one of my favorites! (But really, they are all fantastic!). I haven't participated in a group read yet, but I hope to soon!

  3. I've read two of these books so far (Heartless and Draven's Light) and I'm really dying to read all the rest. Do you know if you have to read them in any particular order? Are they all stand-alones or are some joined together? I'm planning on reading Starflower next as it is the only other one I own. :)

    1. Anne Elisabeth Stengl recommend reading them the way she published them! After Heartless is Veil Roses then Moonblood then Starflower :) Starflower is my favorite out of them all!
