5.0 out of 5 stars Moonblood April 4, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't you love it when you find that book(or series) that you absolutely feel the need to gush about?! I definitely feel the need to gush about The Tales of Goldstone Wood series. My first instinct is to say that Moonblood has been my favorite book so far. In actuality, all the books are sort of one long story, though. (There's never been a huge cliffhanger, which I greatly appreciate). As much as I've loved the series after reading the first two books, it's with the addition of Moonblood that my opinion of the series has been drastically raised. I can easily see this series achieving Classic status. It has became one of my all-time favorite series EVER, and I can't wait to re-read each of these books to discover more of the hidden meanings. As all the little details and characters keep coming together, I can see the brilliance of the story. Once again, I HIGHLY recommend you read these in publication order.

Amazingly, I'm even more excited about Starflower, because it appears it will go back in time for us to read Eanrin's background story. As much as I adore most of the characters in this series, Eanrin is by far my favorite, despite his arrogant nature. I simply adore Eanrin's character! In Heartless, he only had a somewhat small part, and I don't recall him being in Veiled Rose at all. In Moonblood, we really get to know him better. Lord willing, I'm thankful I only have to wait until October, instead of a whole year to pick it up, which would break my heart!

I do want to point out that The Goldstone Wood Series is definitely Christian in nature, but it can be read completely separate from Christian thoughts if that is what you'd prefer. I'd say if you really and truly like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Goldstone Series should be right up your alley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fariytales of Epic Proportion July 25, 2012
Format:Paperback
I'm an avid reader(and writer), and I have read MANY books, both well-known and unknown. But after a few days of reflection, I decided that "Tales of Goldstone Wood" was my favorite fantasy series of all time! (Topping even the Lord of the Rings books for enjoyment anyway.) I had to share them, so I read them to my mother. She loved them, though at first concerned that they dwelt on darkness. (It didn't.)

"Moonblood" is a story of love, grace, forgiveness, and redemption. The main character, Lionheart, wants to be a good guy, but he's a people pleaser, and the people hate his best friend, the mysterious veiled girl, Rose Red, who terrifies the kingdom of Southlands. Afraid of losing his kingdom, Lionheart reluctantly banishes her to the dreaded Wilderlands. Soon afterwards, the rest of Lionheart's life falls to shambles. It is then that the second part of the book returns to a familiar character: Prince Felix, whose condition of dragon poisoning is becoming worse and worse. It his story that leads us to the land of Arpiar, a place of artificial beauty, overseen by the divinely beautiful King Vahe, and guarded by the evil, but haunted, unicorn. It is in Arpiar, the land of the Veiled Folk, that we are reunited with Rose Red, who has hardened her heart against the Prince of Farthestshore and Lionheart. Meanwhile, Lionheart bumbles his way through adventures with an unlikely guide: the cat Monster, otherwise known as Eanrin. (Or "sir," or "Your Grace", or "Your Eminence.") Eanrin likes Lionheart little, and Lionheart hates cats, so the two get on each others nerves in a hilarious way, especially when Lionheart learns Eanrin's secret. In this book we also re-meet, Lady Imraldera, who has a fascinating past strongly intertwined with Eanrin's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Follow-up to Heartless and Veiled Rose March 1, 2014
By Nate
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Moonblood is the third in the series of Tales of Goldstone Wood by Anne Stengl. It takes place after the events of Heartless and Veiled Rose, and follows the continuing tale of Prince Lionheart, Rose Red, and Felix. The storylines are very intricate, and cover a lot of events, but as the book nears the end the individual storylines collide in a rather exciting climax to the story.

A large part of the story revolves around Rose Red, who it turns out is the goblin princess Varvare, who is soon taken captive by her father, King Vahe of Arpiar. Lionheart, the cause of her capture, soon embarks on a quest to find her, and try to redeem himself for his past cowardly actions. He is joined by the cat Monster, who happens to also be a Knight and a poet named Eanrin - I found their bickering interactions throughout the book to be some of the most enjoyable. Eanrin is after young Prince Felix who has still not recovered from his poisoning from Heartless, and is taken to Arpiar and kept under the influence of Vahe. Eventually Vahe's dark plans for Rosie become clear, and in the end it is up to Lionheart to abandon his cowardly ways from his past, and save her at any cost.

Anne Stengl writes some of the most beautifully descriptive fiction I've read, and manages to weave in both bits of familiar fairy stories, as well as Christian allegory into her fantasy books in a way that reminds me somewhat of CS Lewis, and I highly recommend giving her series a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your "been done" story! September 16, 2012
Format:Paperback
Tired of old, been done, rewritten drivel? Then Moonblood is the book for you!!!! The twists and turns in this story will keep you on the edge of your seat; and whatever you do, don't think you know what is going to happen! I've read many books over the years and after a while, they all just blend together and you can anticipate every climax. Not Moonblood! Right down to the unexpected and unpredictable evil unicorn! Be ready to "not put it down"!!! This is the third book in a series and I have to say that Moonblood so far was my favorite and I can't wait to read the next book, Starflower. Be careful, once you start; you'll be hooked!!!!Moonblood (Tales of Goldstone Wood)
