This is the first fantasy book that I have read as an adult, and I have to say...I LOVED it!! Veiled Rose is the second book in the Tales of Goldstone Wood series. This story details how Prince Lionheart (Leo) and Rose Red met as children, and weaves a tale of unexpected friendship. Rose Red is considered a monster by the villagers, so she wears a veil to cover herself and hides in the forest. Leo does not see her in that way, and only sees the true friend that she is. They go on many adventures, one of which is to catch the "monster" that is hiding somewhere in the mountains. The monster is very real, and both of them will go on their own quest to defeat it. I would have liked to have read the first book in the series, but it was not necessary since this book definitely stands on its own. Give this book a try, even if you never read fantasy, because this story is beautifully written and captivating.
I received this book from the publisher in order to write an honest, unbiased review.
