Excerpt from STARFLOWER where...
Imraldera Meets the Dragonwitch
by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Starflower  (Tales of Goldstone Wood #4)Imraldera sat upright and turned with a gasp at the deep voice speaking from the shadows. She had never before heard such a voice. It was ancient and dark, bound in a body it was not meant to inhabit. A figure stepped into view, slight, rag clothed, and flanked by the Black Dogs. Those monsters made the figure seem smaller, though she stood a full head taller than Imraldera. 

She was a woman. 

Imraldera stared, not believing her eyes or her ears. Leaping to her feet, she bowed after the fashion of her people and made the sign for “chieftain,” for what other word could describe this person before her. A woman! A woman who spoke in a voice both like and unlike a man’s! There never was such a marvel, such a horror. Imraldera, dizzy with both fear and hunger, feared that she might faint. And what a dreadful fate would that be, to display such weakness before a woman of such power! 

The dragon-witch smiled. “Perhaps I should speak to you in your own language,” she said. Then she raised her hands and formed the words known only to the silent women. “You are from the Land Behind the Mountains.” 

Imraldera gasped.

"Readers will enjoy this romantic adventure story...akin to C.S. Lewis' Narnia series."--Booklist 

When a cursed dragon-witch kidnaps the lovely Lady Gleamdren, Eanrin sets boldly forth on a rescue mission...and a race against his rival for Gleamdren's favor. Intent upon his quest, the last thing the immortal Faerie needs is to become mixed up with the troubles of an insignificant mortal. 

But when he stumbles upon a maiden trapped in an enchanted sleep, he cannot leave her alone in the dangerous Wood Between. One waking kiss later, Eanrin suddenly finds his story entangled with that of young Starflower. A strange link exists between this mortal girl and the dragon-witch. Will Starflower prove the key to Lady Gleamdren's rescue? Or will the dark power from which she flees destroy both her and her rescuer?
