A tale of Goldstone wood
Timeless Fantasy That Will Keep You Spellbound

   Okay for starters I love this cover, best one I've seen in a while. This book had no problem keeping me interested and for my first dragon book I could not put it down. The description of the characters and world had no problem making me imagine I was there. This is a tale of love, loyalty, betrayal, and trust. It has dragon, faeries, and a princess that makes a lot of foolish choices. So if you love fantasy and dragons go pick it up. I give it five stars.
