Shadow hand by Anne Stengl

I simply loved this book! Ever since discovering Anne Stengl's books she has quickly become one of  my favorite books, her series "Tales of Goldstone Wood" is extraordinarily good, a perfect blend of depth, detail, romance, action and riveting characters. Every time I read the newest book in the series I think it is my favorite..until the next one comes out!
Since this is part of a series I think it would be best if people read the books in order as Lady Daylily and Foxbrush are in previous books and their story would make a lot more sense having read the previous books.
Lady Daylily has had her share of disappointments and before the eve of her marriage to Prince Foxbrush she runs away, fleeing to the dangerous Wilderlands. Prince Foxbrush has been in love with Daylily since he was quite young and is devastated when she flees, vowing to find her.
What ensues is a tale of finding courage, the different types of love and the value of friendship.
I loved how real Ms. Stengl's characters are, all of them are flawed and yet very likable, even poor Foxbrush who I was very happy to see have a satisfying ending, one cannot help but feel a bit sorry for him!

I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a wonderful storyteller and fantasy.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
