"Starflower" by Elisabeth Stengl

A dragon-witch, a damsel in distress, rivalry for a maiden's love, enchanted sleep, and a young maiden who could be the answer to a problem - all parts of this wonderful story by Elisabeth Stengl. Open this book, and find the fun of fantasy and the ultimate battle of good and evil.

Eanrin lives the life of a loved poet, and is a man vying for the hand of the lovely Lady Gleamdren. But, tragedy strikes before she chooses her love and she is taken away by the evil dragon-witch who is out for revenge. What would a hero do in this case? Exactly what Eanrin does - begin a search and rescue. This could be the way to win her heart, but more than that, Lady Gleamdren needs rescuing. As he journeys, Eanrin finds Starflower in the Wood Between. Unable to leave her behind, Eanrin takes her with him and finds some surprising results to that decision. What is Starflower's purpose? Can she help free Lady Gleamdren? What will happen between Eanrin and Lady Gleamdren? 

Good fantasy writing totally draws me in and holds me throughout the story. That is what "Starflower" did for me. I really enjoyed the characters, the story line, and the settings. Ms. Stengl is a masterful writer and I can't wait to read more of her work. I highly recommend this book to readers who love fantasy. It will not disappoint you. I received my free review copy from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
