Golden Daughter by Anne Elisabeth Stengl(Another Review!)

BEYOND THE REALM OF DREAMS 

IS A WORLD SHE NEVER IMAGINED. 

Masayi Sairu was raised to be dainty, delicate, demure . . . and deadly. She is one of the emperor’s Golden Daughters, as much a legend as she is a commodity. One day, Sairu will be contracted in marriage to a patron, whom she will secretly guard for the rest of her life. 

But when she learns that a sacred Dream Walker of the temple seeks the protection of a Golden Daughter, Sairu forgoes marriage in favor of this role. Her skills are stretched to the limit, for assassins hunt in the shadows, and phantoms haunt in dreams. With only a mysterious Faerie cat and a handsome slave—possessed of his own strange abilities—to help her, can Sairu shield her new mistress from evils she can neither see nor touch? 

For the Dragon is building an army of fire. And soon the heavens will burn.
LET ME JUST SAY:
This book is awesome. I dove into it with a voracious appetite that knew The Tales of Goldstone Wood well. I was not disappointed! Anne Elisabeth Stengl brought in fresh, new characters, as well as old ones(EANRIN! *sqee*). The usual formula: several doses of action, more of world, or story, and a dose of good romance. Anne Elisabeth Stengl has another amazing story!

THE GOOD:

characters
As I said, there were fresh and new characters, along with the familiar old ones. Laughable, beautiful(heartbroken) characters.

story
THE STORY! Oh my goodness. This book was overflowing with wonderful story. It was almost as good as my mom’s cheesecake(which is the best ever, so…).

villain
The
dragon.
Oh my word. He is a brilliant villain. A beautiful blend of evil, creepiness, more evil, and more creepiness. He jumped off the page and is one of my favorite villains.

HYLUMÉ
She gets her own paragraph because this was partially her story, and it was heart-wrenchingly beautiful.

the style
I love Anne Elizabeth’s lovely writing style. It is beautiful.

the cover
It is beautiful.

THE BAD:

The book ended. 🙂

Five stars to another wonderful book by my favorite author!

* I recieved a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
