Goddess Tithe book review

Goddess Tithe by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. Gorgeous, breathtaking cover!

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?

My thoughts:

 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


  1. I actually found "Veiled Rose" to be my least favorite of the "Tales of Goldstone Wood" novels when I read it almost 4 years ago. But I'd like to go back and reread the series, and see if I would like it better now.

    1. I hope you enjoy re-reading this series Grace!!!

  2. I'm looking forward to reading my copy this summer! I definitely loved Lionheart and would love to read more of his story!

    1. Thanks for commenting Laura!
