Easily Understood with all the Depth

Draven's Light

Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Tales of Goldstone Wood Novella

Drums summon the chieftain’s powerful son to slay a man in cold blood and thereby earn his place among the warriors. But instead of glory, he earns the name Draven, “Coward.” When the men of his tribe march off to war, Draven remains behind with the women and his shame. Only fearless but crippled Ita values her brother’s honor.

The warriors return from battle victorious yet trailing a curse in their wake. One by one the strong and the weak of the tribe fall prey to an illness of supernatural power. The secret source of this evil can be found and destroyed by only the bravest heart.

But when the curse attacks the one Draven loves most, can this coward find the courage he needs to face the darkness?

     This is the perfect novella for the Tales of Goldstone Wood. Less complicated then literally every other book in the series, it delivers the same delightful story on a quick and less intensive time span. The need to be in  an environment where you can focus, and leave off at specific points so you won't forget what is going on isn't present. 

     This novella delivers the style, and the environment, in a friendly for beginners fashion. I would even go so far as to say this novella is perfect for those just starting on these intense books, and also good for those who are looking for a light beach read. 

     Not to say that it doesn't deliver the emotional plot, or the touching and deep plot. Because it does. It is just less characters. Less people who with their own individual story lines can gunk up the basics with incredible tangents. 

     It is a perfect compliment to the rest of the series and I highly recommend reading it any way you can. 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review. Enjoy Reading!
