Mysterious faery realms, evil goblin kings, slumbering dragons about to awaken…what’s not to like in Moonblood? It’s a classic tale of good and evil, only they don’t always appear the way you expect. And it all plays out in an intricately crafted fairy tale world.
I thoroughly enjoy Anne Elisabeth Stengl‘s novels, so I wanted to share her newest book with you. If you want to learn a little more, I’ve included details below.
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.
Sample of the first page:
The unicorn stood before the gates of Palace Var. It guarded the paths to and from Arpiar, watching them with eyes that burned through all tricks and disguises. The roses climbing the stone walls of Var cast their moonlit shadows upon the unicorn’s back in dappled patterns. If a wind swelled, those patterns shifted, but the unicorn never moved.
