At long last, the cover for the fifth book in Anne Elisabeth Stengl’s Tales of Goldstone Wood is revealed! Previous books in the series are Heartless, Veiled Rose, Moonblood, and Starflower (scheduled to come out November 1st!).
I have always found the covers of the Tales of Goldstone Wood series to be absolutely fascinating. Beautiful, intriguing, and so fitting for the story. Anne Elizabeth Stengl pens magnificent fairy tales in a style befitting the classics. Exquisite wordsmithing and plot crafting combine to create stories as memorable as the covers.
Can’t wait to get my hands on this fifth book in the series!
ago, Etanun buried his sword in the depths of the Netherworld then vanished
from all known history. One day, it is said, his heir will find the sword, and
the Dragonwitch, firstborn of the Dragon King, will be finally slain.
A Desperate Hope
These stories are no more than nursery rhymes. In a world of cold reality, what
room is left for fairy tales? Lady Leta of Aiven is pledged to marry a man she
does not love… sleepless Lord Alistair struggles to unite the stubborn earls
of the North Country… Mouse is lost, far from home, slaving as a kitchen drudge…
… and the reclusive Chronicler, keeping the records of Gaheris Castle, bears a
secret so dangerous it could cost him his life and plunge the North Country
into civil war.
But when nursery rhymes begin to come horribly true, will these unlikely heroes
find the strength they need to fulfill a prophecy of fire? For the Dragonwitch
lives. And she has vowed vengeance on all who have wronged her.
