"Moonblood" Book Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (April 1, 2012)
Anne Elisabeth Stengl

I read the first book in this series when it originally came out and I knew we had a new speculative fiction/fantasy voice on our hands. Somehow I missed the second one in this series and then picked up the third book. Alot has happened since the first book ended and it took me a little while to figure out who everyone was again and what was going on. That is to be expected anytime you pick up in the middle. I don't recommend doing that, it is much smarter to start at the beginning and just go straight through enjoying everything as you go. Despite my rebellious nature of skipping around in the series, I was still able to meet back up with the characters and enjoy this story of love lost, love found, dragons and knights, evil and good... it is quite wonderful. I just suggest you start at the beginning and go in order!


Anne Elisabeth Stengl makes her home in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she enjoys her profession as an art teacher, giving private lessons from her personal studio, and teaching group classes at the Apex Learning Center. She is married to the handsome man she met at fencing class and lives with him and a gaggle of cats. She studied illustration at Grace College and English literature at Campbell University. Heartless is her debut novel.

Anne Elisabeth is also the author of the Tales of Goldstone Wood, a series of fantasy adventure novels told in the classic Fairy Tale style.


Moonblood Draws Near, and Soon the Dragons Will Wake

Desperate to regain the trust of his kingdom, Prince Lionheart reluctantly banishes his faithful servant and only friend, Rose Red. Now she is lost in the hidden realm of Arpiar, held captive by her evil goblin father, King Vahe.

Vowing to redeem himself, Lionheart plunges into the mysterious Goldstone Wood, seeking Rose Red. In strange other worlds, Lionheart must face a lyrical yet lethal tiger, a fallen unicorn, and a goblin horde on his quest to rescue the girl he betrayed.

With the Night of Moonblood fast approaching when King Vahe seeks to wake the Dragon's sleeping children, Lionheart must discover whether or not his heart contains courage before it's too late for Rose Red . . . and all those he loves.
