The Tales of Goldstone Wood have a wonderful Christian overtone, but the characters are not immediately recognizeable as familiar figures. Stengl paints a complex picture that keeps readers squinting to determine who they can trust. I liked Veiled Rose better than Heartless because of this intricacy.

I enjoyed the first book, Heartless, more than Veiled Rose. I absolutely loved the relationship between Una and Aethelbald had. The ending of Heartless was awesome. Though I did not enjoy Veiled Rose as I did the first book, it was a good book, and I would read it again.
