Heartless (Tales of Goldstone Wood #1) by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

The Dragon King Seeks His Princess--
Who Dares to Stop Him?

Princess Una of Parumvir has come of age and will soon marry. She dreams of a charming prince, but when her first suitor arrives, he's not what she'd hoped. Prince Aethelbald of mysterious Farthestshore has travelled a great distance to prove his love--and also to bring hushed warnings of danger. A dragon is rumored to be on the hunt and blazing a path of terror.

Una, smitten instead with a more dashing prince, refuses Aethelbald's offer--and ignores his cautions with dire consequences. Soon the Dragon King himself is in Parumvir and Una, in giving her heart away unwisely, finds herself in his sights. Only those courageous enough to risk everything have a hope of fighting off this advancing evil.

My Thoughts:
Wow, I loved this book. I just couldn't put it down. The characters were absolutely incredible. Una might have seemed a little whiny, but she was a very strong character. The only character I didn't like was the duke. He was ok at first, but as the book continued he got pretty annoying. The writing is fantastic, because it always keeps you guessing what happens next and has you on the edge of your seat. I like the way the human to dragon change was explained and so easy to follow. The only thing I wish would have been explained in more detail is about how they can't cross the bridge, which might be described more in book two. I would definitely recommend this book for fans of fantasy.

I give Heartless: 5/5.

I recieved this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not in any way compensated for this review.
