"Staring at you."
"You don't have something to read...or something?"
I thought for a moment. "All right, then." I stood up, grabbed my Kindle and scrolled around until I found the book I was looking for. I had gotten Anne Elisabeth Stengl's first book, Heartless free on Kindle a couple of days ago. I had read it and loved it. Maybe my sister would too.
"Here," I handed her my Kindle. "Read that. You'll like it."
So she did and she and I have both been fans of Anne Elisabeth's wonderful novels ever since. We have read all of this wonderful author's books except for the newly released Goddess Tithe, which we are both dying to read along with Anne Elisabeth's next book Shadow Hand. Here is Hannah's review on Heartless. Hope you like it!
Heartless, by Anne Elizabeth Stengel, was by far one of my all-time favorite books. All of the characters were perfectly formed and throughout the book I was clearly able to learn their personalities. My favorite character would have to be Aethelbald but I guess that doesn't count since he is perfect. A close second would have to be Death-and –Life. I know it sounds weird but he was such a creepily cool, evil character. At the beginning of the book, Una seemed to be a wonderful character, but I couldn't help but stop liking her when she carelessly gave her heart away. I was also completely shocked (in a good way) when Death-and -Life’s kiss turned her into a dragon. I loved the way Aethelbald continuously searched for Una even though she kept rejecting him. My favorite scene would have to be when Una finally gave in and Aethalbald gave her his heart so that she would live (sigh). All in all, Heartless was a lovely fantasy-filled book and I am giving it five shiny gold stars out of five.
