Publisher Comments:

Rose Red trusts no one with her secret. She hides in the mountains, her face completely veiled, shunning the company of all save her old father and her nanny goat. Her life is bleak and lonely.Until she meets a young man with a secret royal heritage. Lionheart seeks to bring Rose Red to his palace to watch out for her. When the Dragon King arrives, claiming Rose Red as his own, she chooses to flee to the royal palace while Lionheart is exiled on a quest to find a way to defeat the monster. Infuriated by Rose Red's rebellion, the Dragon King imprisons the royal family, wooing her into this thrall while pulling the household into a dangerous twilight world. Rose Red must be willing to sacrifice everything she loves most and Lionheart must return in time to free his kingdom. Their choices will affect not only the course of their own lives but also the fate of nations.

Synopsis:

A tale of dragons, romance, and danger as Rose Red chooses who to trust and what to sacrifice to save her family and the kingdom.

Synopsis:

Rose Red trusts no one with her secret. She hides in the forest, her face veiled in rags, shunning the company of all save her old father and her nanny goat. Her life is bleak and lonely.

Until she meets a privileged young man sent to spend his summer in the mountains. Leo, a lonely lad, befriends Rose Red, and together they begin hunting for the Mountain Monster which, rumor says, stalks these lands.

But the hunt which began as a game holds greater risk than Leo supposes. Rose Red can scarcely guess at the consequences should he insist on continuing his search. Dare she trust him with her secret? Or tell him what dwells at the top of the mountain in the cave only she can find?

Above all, when Leo asks Rose Red to leave the mountain and follow him to the low country, dare she agree and risk the wrath of a Monster that is all too real?

Veiled Rose is a magical tale reminiscent of a fairytale. The main character, Rose Red, is hidden in the forest covered in rags carrying with her a big secret. She lives a life of squalor and lonliness in the woods until the day she meets a handsome young man named Leo who soon becomes a friend to Rose Red. They set out on an adventure together to find a monster that has been terrorizing their lands. Anne Elisabeth Stengl is a master at creating a magical land and characters that seem as if they are straight out of a movie. This novel is an easy and enjoyable read and I will definitely be checking more of Stengl’s books in the future. I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for review purposes only.
