Book Review | Heartless

Title: Heartless (Tales of Goldstone Wood)

Author: Anne Elisabeth Stengl

My Review:

Heartless is a work of fantasy/allegory which to me seemed kind of like a really great fairy tale. On the cover of the book you you see the eye of a dragon and a young girl in the middle of it, so the picture on the cover alone gets your mind working and wondering. If you are a fan of dragons and princesses, romance and princes, unique story lines and characters, then I am sure you will love this book as I did.

Princess Una has come of age and is awaiting suitors to come and whisk her away. {If only it were that easy!} Prince Aethebald comes from far away~ the Kingdom of Farthestshore~ to sweep her off her feet and prove how much he loves her. Una is unimpressed and wants to wait for a more suitable Prince… one who is more attractive.

Prince Aethebald also wants to warn Una and her kingdom of Parumvir that their is great danger for them to be aware of in the form of a dragon who has been causing much trouble along his path. He has been hunting and destroying whatever gets in his way. Una easily dismisses this information and makes choices which have disastrous consequences.

A timeless story of good versus evil and a compelling read I must say. I do love this genre and I am now loving this “Christian fantasy” style of writing. It reminds me somewhat of writings such as Lord of the Rings or The Chronicles of Narnia and I highly recommend you give it a read.
