A New Tale Is Added to this Christy Award-Winning Fantasy Saga!
Submissive to her father's will, Lady Leta of Aiven travels far to meet a prospective husband she neither knows nor loves--Lord Alistair, future king of the North Country.
But within the walls of Gaheris Castle, all is not right. Vicious night terrors plague Lord Alistair to the brink of insanity. 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 North Country into civil war.
And far away in a hidden kingdom, a fire burns atop the Temple of the Sacred Flame. 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 one person who can wield it.
Anne Elisabeth Stengl delivers another hit with Dragonwitch! Readers of the Goldstone wood series will be delighted with this newest installment, which continues the rich legacy of superb storyline, compelling characters and vivid allegory. Two stories weave together to become one as the mystery of how the Queen of Etalpalli becomes the Flame at Night is revealed; a tragic tale of grief turned to bitterness when vengeance takes the place of forgiveness in ones’ heart. Characters you have grown to love in the series like Eanrin and Imraldera, continue to grow in depth, never ceasing to unleash their own surprises.
Charming and enchanting, this tale draws the reader along on an adventure with valuable moral messages, not the least of which is the abundance of God’s grace and forgiveness.
Two paths, one decision, everlasting consequences, drawing the character toward evil or good, which path would you choose? I love how the author illustrates so vividly how our choices in life can lead us down a path drawing closer to God or farther astray, eventually destroying our very essence if we follow a course away from our Savior.
This book and the entire series is a delight and wonderful contribution to the world of Christian fantasy!
