Goddess Tithe book review
Title: Goddess Tithe- a novella
Series: Tales of GoldstoneWood
Author: Anne Elisabeth Stengl
Genre: Young Adult Christian Fantasy Ficiton
Plot: Munny is a young boy who works on a merchant ship. The ship is on it's way home when a stowaway is discovered on board.
Munny and the other sailors on board know that all stowaways are required to be thrown into the sea as an offering for Risafeth, an evil sea goddess.
The Captain of the ship doesn't throw the stowaway, Leonard the lightning tongue, overboard, and instead makes Leonard work on the ship.
When mysterious things begin to happen nearly ever one on board blames Leonard. Who is in the right- the crew or the Captain?
This novella shows Leonard the lightning time, better know has Lionheart, on one of his many travels. I found this interesting because it gave more details into Lionheart's story that is only mentioned vaguely in Veiled Rose.
This novella really reminded me of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. It has mysterious waters, an evil creature, and a bittersweet ending, not unlike those elements found in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
If you love the Tales of Goldstone Woods, especially Veiled Rose, You will enjoy this novella.
My rating: 3.5
