Author Anne Elisabeth Stengl is releasing a new story in the "Tales of Goldstone Wood" series - Book 7, titled Golden Daughter. Look for it this November...and read on to learn more about the book and it's intriguing cover!

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.

    Dragonwitch's cover is very dramatic, isn't it? Definitely fitting for a fantasy series, hinting at danger and an epic quest! I'm actually hoping to read that one very soon. :)
