Golden Daughter book review
Title: Golden Daughter
Series: Tales of GoldstoneWood
Number in series: 7
Author: Anne Elisabeth Stengl
Genre: Young Adult Christian Fantasy
Plot: Masayi Sairu is a Golden Daughter, a trained warrior sworn to protect her master until her death. Sairu is assigned to a dreamwalker who is being sent to another temple because of a dark secret.
Can Sairu protect her mistress despite the growing darkness in the kingdom?
My thoughts: This book is a little different than the other books in the Tales of GoldstoneWood series. Most of the characters are new, except for Eanrin and the songbird. This book is also much longer than the other books in the series ( It's 570 pages, to be exact).
Even though it's long it didn't drag on. It was very action packed, so I'm glad the author took time to explain what was happening.
The story took place in Noorhitam Empire, a country briefly described in Goddess Tithe. Noorhitam's culture is similar to that of China's.Because of that I found this book really interesting.
As always with Anne Elisabeth Stengl's books, the characters are fantastic. Sairu and Jonan were unique characters. I can't think of any YA characters similar to them.
All in all another wonderful book by Anne Elisabeth Stengl.
My rating: 3.5
