    One thought on “Veiled Rose”

    1. Did Ms Stengl just write a book better than Heartless Why yes, yes she did Rose Red is now forever in my heart 3

    2. I just read this book for the second time What can I say There s so much to this story, I m not sure how I m supposed to review it.It s a Tale of Goldstone Wood That s about all that needs to be said It s funny It s dark It s colorful It s smoke covered It s frightening It makes me happy It inspires me.Lionheart was an adorable little kid It was cool to watch him grow up and become who he was in Heartless And it was awesome to see some of the scenes from Heartless from Lionheart s point of view [...]

    3. In Heartless we learned the story of Una Now in Veiled Rose we learn of a girl named Rose Red She has to be one of the sweetest characters in literature.Rosie wears veils to hide her appearance She s spunky and stubborn But perhaps she learned that from her Nanny goat.As far as Rosie is concerned, all her friends are imaginary So she s only too happy to make acquaintance with a young impetuous boy called Leo He s looking for a mountain monster, and thus a friendship beginsMost of Veiled Rose tak [...]

    4. I m sorry to be the odd one out, but I didn t get into this as much as Heartless I dragged through most of it Maybe it was because I had forgotten stuff from the first book, so that I didn t make the connection until I was reading something random about Heartless But once I got closer to the end it was great Rose Red has a secret A secret that has her living in isolation in the mountains with nothing but an old man she calls father and her nanny goat But then she meets headstrong Leo, who quickl [...]

    5. I ve seen many great reviews of this series, but I have to be honest and say that I just didn t get it I think it hindered my reading that I didn t read the first book, but the story was just way too cryptic for my tastes I felt like I wandered through the book in a fog that made no sense I wanted at least one straight answer to my many questions.I liked Leo s character and his growth I especially liked that the author started to call him by his full name, Lionheart , when he really became a man [...]

    6. Veiled Rose is an intricately woven book, full of fresh fantasy with a classic feel The story follows two complex main characters, Rose Red, a mysterious girl who covers her secret with veils, and Leo, a young prince who is always ready for adventure.Veiled Rose reads like a timeless classic, a bit slow going at times but well worth reading Ms Stengl weaves an ethereal spell throughout the book, with complicated plotlines laid down ever so subtly It is a rich, engaging and all together enjoyable [...]

    7. It took me a little while to get into this book It moves quite slowly, but once it did grab my attention, it kept it It s under 400 pages, but it seemed long It felt like I had to read forever to get to the end That s not necessarily bad, though I was just so incredibly curious what was hidden under Rose Red s veil that I couldn t get to the end quick enough I felt like I was missing details At times I was really confused, and didn t know who characters were suppose to be I had to go back and re [...]

    8. I don t frequently read books by contemporary writers, and even less frequently do I enjoy them Veiled Rose, however, was than a pleasant surprise it is a fantastic no pun intended story, weaving so many threads together and creating so much tension that the book is impossible to abandon One thing in particular I admire about the writing is the humor, which in many books is stale or absurd, but which in this one is hilariously dry I have not yet read the first book in the series, Heartless, but [...]

    9. Although I still like Heartless best so far , Veiled Rose was very beautiful as well Anne Elisabeth has a gentle style, memorable characters, and stories with hearts of gold Can t wait to read of this lovely series.

    10. Good thing this is only part one I d give this fewer stars if that was the end that wasn t an ending but fortunately I know the story continues I need to read Moonblood, NOW.

    11. Wow Another great book in the series It s been awhile since the first book so I only remembered bits and pieces of it That kind of worked in my favor I think Gave this book a fresh feel.A young boy is sent to the country where he hears about a monster and decides to hunt it His quest is set aside when he meets the strange Rose Red A girl in the middle of nowhere, with a goat for company, AND she s always veiled The two hit it off in a very cute, best friends sort of way The book covers from the [...]

    12. QUICK HIT Drawing on themes of identity, beauty, and love, Veiled Rose follows the story of an enigmatic mountain girl, the prince she befriends, and the dragons they must face.Veiled Rose is best described as a companion novel to Stengl s 2010 debut, Heartless The novel follows a few of the same characters and expands upon a storyline given a brief reference in Heartless Near the end, the storylines intertwine in a surprising but powerful way, providing depth and background to the fantasy world [...]

    13. This book was an impossibly epic ride of feels I CRIED SO MANY TIMES Everything was just so, so good and ack it was way deserving of five stars at least.Can I just have a moment for the characters Rose Red, Leo, Beana every single character was so good and so real I felt every emotion which led to me sobbing beside a pile of tissues than once and I was completely in the story.Leo broke my heart At least five times don t ask, just read the book view spoiler I mean, I sort of knew what happened b [...]

    14. Ah, escaping to a different land, a different time and a different everything isn t that a major reason to read a book In the words of C.S Lewis Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again Well I guess I am there with Anne Elisabeth Stengl s newest book in her Tales of Goldstone Wood series Veiled Rose Or rather in my case, I don t think I ever stopped reading them If you are a fantasy fan that loves to read of princes and princesses, dragons and the netherworld then this [...]

    15. I am always a fan of fairy re tellings, even if it is for a fairy tale I am not actually familiar with, as that of Rose Red It took me awhile, but I also gathered that the book is a kind of Christian allegory, and parts remind me of Pilgrim s Progress by John Bunyan.Rose Red is by far the most intriguing character, as her birth is shrouded in mystery, her friends are animals with voices, and she cloaks herself in veils and layers to hide even the smallest scrap of skin from any prying eyes inclu [...]

    16. Rose Red trusts no one with her secret She hides in the forest, her face veiled with rags, shunning the company of all to save her old father and her nanny goat Her life is bleak and lonely.Until she meets a privileged young man sent to spend his summer in the mountains Headstrong Leo startles everyone by befriending Rose Red, and together they begin searching for the monster rud to be stalking these lands But the hunt, which began as a game, holds greater risk than either imagines Soon both are [...]

    17. Wow, Elizabeth, this is typologically deep Some of the fantastical pictures she draws are absolutely exquisite I think she is especially worth reading for Christian young people who are dealing with issues of the heart.She demonstrates, using her fantasy in a way that is very winsome, how well meaning young people can be derailed by Satan s wiles.If you want to follow my thought further, you should read the book And you should also read the 1st book, Heartless before you read this book view spoi [...]

    18. Okay, I ll admit it I didn t like Prince Lionheart when I read Heartless, the first book in this series I thought he was selfish and a coward I only knew that he lied about who he was and felt that he used Princess Una in a horrible way I grew to think of him just as Leo in this book and I loved him I guess that shows you how important knowing a person s back story can be lol I think I liked this book overall even better than the first Maybe it s the series effect growing to love the characters [...]

    19. The most delightful fantasy I ve read in a while, every bit as good as its predecessor It balances the ethereal, magical elements the dreams, the Netherworld, the Paths with the real world Hill House, the mountain woods, the streets of the Eastern empires perfectly I never felt lose as I have with some similar books I also love the way the themes are unclear until near the end I wasn t sure what to expect when the climax got over and what I had thought was the main plot didn t really resolve in [...]

    20. In Veiled Rose, Stengl brings a vivid and haunting world to life in a powerful way, giving new perspective and new dimensions to the story begun in Heartless Book One of the Tales of Goldstone Wood Full of adventure and meaning, this book is creative, unique, and epic in its scope It is also challenging in its depth and insights a well rounded and well written tale In order to fully appreciate the fantasy world and the characters that Stengl has depicted, I highly recommend reading Heartless bef [...]

    21. An amazing story that includes all of my favorite elements Suspense, intrigue, hope, danger, anddragons DThis is the story of Rose Red, a girl who has always lived in the mountains, veiled A little boy named Leo meets her, and instead of running away screaming, Demon like everyone else, he invites her on a monster hunt.From there, a friendship is started Through trials of fire, darkness, and the heart, it is secured.While the story highlight Rose Red s journey, it also gives insight on Leo s li [...]

    22. Wow This book is so awesome The story is just amazing Rose Red and Leo are the main characters They both have a battle to fight the question is who will come out victorious I can t write good reviews so this review probably sounds dumb but whatever it was so so so good Thank you for writing these books Anne Elisabeth, I am looking forward to the next ones.

    23. I received my free copy of Veiled Rose from the Author through First Reads I was not obligated to write a positive review this is my full and honest opinion.Cover Blurb Yes or No Even though the girl looks nothing like Rose Red, I do like the cover You really see the character impersonator s face, and I like how her image is in a mirror, held clearly by the Dragon.Characters Rose Red is a much better protagonist than Una in Heartless She may not be able to do much about her situation, or really [...]

    24. The cover isetty but I m not sure that that is a good representation of Rose Red Maybe in the Dragon s mind On the one hand, this book felt too long Too many unimportant things going on making me bored On the other handI liked having the information that we got from Leo and Rose Red s childhood Seeing them grow up And then, obviously, Leo s running off when we would have met him in Heartless 50 50, I guess.Again, I feel that the Christian themes are nice but are very clumsily tied in Rather disj [...]

    25. Veiled Rose, book two in the series Tales of Goldstone Wood, by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, is a wonderful and daring read that will carry you on as you continue your journey through Goldstone Wood The daring side of this book is that not everything you see in your mind is all that you think it is at first, and not everything that you imagine coming around each corner, or turn of the page, ends up coming around the way you think it would In the end you can t decide if you are satisfied, excited, disa [...]

    26. Veiled Rose is the second book in the series Tales of Goldstone Wood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl Having read Heartless, I came into this novel with a predetermined dislike of Lionheart, one of the principle characters By the end, my view of him had changed and I even started to like him.Meanwhile, Rose Red is a very loyal, easily likeable protagonist Her goat, Beana, is simply delightful, and I found her a very fun addition to an otherwise very serious, thought provoking novel This is not the avera [...]

    29. Last year I had the privilege of reviewing the first book in the Tales of Goldstone Wood series, Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl I fell in love with the fantasy world Stengl created When the second book in the series, Veiled Rose, was released I knew right away that I wanted to read it.Veiled Rose is an epic fantasy where dragons are feared, beauty is praised and things are not what they appear to be This story is centered around two main characters Leo made an appearance in Heartless In this [...]
