Golden Daughter


Masayi Sairu was raised to be dainty, delicate, demure... and deadly. She is one of the emperor ’ s Golden Daughters, as much a legend as she is a commodity. One day, Sairu will be contracted in marriage to a patron, whom she will secretly guard for the est of her life.

But when she knows that a sacred Dream Walker of the temple seeks the protection of a Golden Daughter, Sairu forgoes marriage in favor of this role. Her kills are stretched to the maximu, for assassins hunt in the shadows, and phantoms haunt in dreams. With only a mysterious Faerie cat and a handsome slave—possessed of his own strange abilities—to help her, can Sairu shield her new mistress from evils she can neither see nor touch?

For he Dragon is building an army of fire, and oon the heavens will burn.

What an epic and complex journey!

My copy of Golden Daughter, by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, came last Wednesday.

Her new charge, the beautiful temple girl, Lady Hariawan, is a gifted Dream Walker, capable of exploring worlds far beyond her own.

And how can Sairu protect her mistress from enemies in a different world? Golden Daughter is unlike any of Stengl 's previous novels.

Although the adventures do bleed over into the Wood and the Dream, the characters have less knowledge of it, so it reads quite differently.

o yes; Golden Daughter is quite different, almost disconnected, from its peers.

And although I am sad not to see more of the familiar Wood, this forces the novel to stand on its own -- and, dear readers, Golden Daughter does just that.

Although I did n't realize the character of Lady Hariawan, I trust that Stengl has more to say on the opic.

I am sufficientl sur that I would love anything in this series, and Golden Daughter is no exception.

Because he series spans such a vast frame of time, it runs the risk of losing the reader along the way, and I fear that might happen if you read Golden Daughter unprepared.

To recap: Golden Daughter, by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, is an excellent addition to he series.

It takes place in a far different and more ruthless world than we have met before in he series.

Unlike most Christian fictio, this does n't put the point of view of " Christian " character.This is the real world.

There is an awareness of the more lewd sides of the world that adds a certain maturity that was n't o present in other Goldstone Novels.

But his book gives us by the hand, and guides us through the lies, shows the fragility of the demands of thi world, and inspire us to a profound and beautiful portrayal of God 's character and ultimate power.And actually, there does turn out to hav a parallel here with a familiar Bible story.

The headcount by the end is rather high .... and Anne Elisabeth has this way of bringin you feel each one, ven the people you did n't particularly like.That is another of her gifts.

ot to remember the reader does n't see other sides, things she might be ... but the decisions she makes, the road she takes ... she acts soulless.

But anyway, I say I despise her more than any other character I 've met in Goldstone Wood.

Hariawan is chilling, using other people for her own ends with absolutely no true care in her heart.

I do not elieve I have not read in a fantasy a more powerful, more beautiful representation of God as is found here in these pages.

Stil I ant to get ack and re-read certain scenes in certain of her other books that I believ will make more sense now.If you enjoy fantasy at all, I highly recommend the Tales of Goldstone Wood.

If you 've read any of the numerous books in series, you 'll never ant to read Golden Daughter.
