Book Review: Shadow Hand

Book cover with Red haired girl
Shadow Hand
Anne Elisabeth Stengl

This is a story about blood, and love and the many things that lie between. By her father's wish, Lady Daylily is betrothed to the Prince of Southlands. Not the prince she loves, handsome and dispossessed Lionheart but his cousin the awkward and foolish Prince Foxbrush. As her wedding day dawns, Daylily flees into the dangerous Wilderlands, her only desire to vanish from living memory. But Goxbrush determined to rescue his betrothed pursues Daylily into a new world of magic and peril a world where vicious Faerie beasts  hold sway a world invaded by lethal parasite, a wold that is hauntingly familiar. 

Anne Elisabeth Stengl is the winner of the 2011 Christy Award for Debut Novel. Winner of the 2012 Christy Award for Visionary Novel. Winner of the 2013 Christy Award for Visionary Novel. Winner of the 2013 Clive Staples Award for Speculative Fiction. I'm a huge fan of books like the Tales of Goldstone Wood. I love the fantasy feel of the book, I mean the setting of Shadow Hand is amazing.  Of course as you know I can't not read a love story and with all the drama going on princesses and princes and lots of other royalty this book totally does the trick. If you like Fortress of Mist or Eye of the Sword you'll love this book.
