Pretty Picture

I saw this picture, and it made me think of this peculiar little poem, tucked away amid the pages of Veiled Rose. Do you remember it? The song the sylph slave of Duke Shippening sings, thereby angering the duke?


There's a story that goes with this poem . . . a whole novel even, which has been hinted at in the three novels already published! I hope I'll get to share it with you one day.

Though, I will note here and now, that this particular character never wears her blouse like this . . .

That's Lady Imrelda...the one from the prince's Haven!

That would make a great book!

Good guess, Galadriel! But it's actually not Imraldera . . . it's a different female knight whom you have also met in the first three novels, though you don't yet know her real name! :)

It's Beana...right? I LOVE that poem. I read it several times just because I love it so much!

wait, is it Silent Lady or the dragon king's sister?

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Good guesses, Molly, but Clara got it right . . . it's Beana in her human form, part of her backstory which we don't yet know, but which has been hinted at in VEILED ROSE and in MOONBLOOD. :)

Hey Anne Elisabeth! I just got The Thief and The Queen of Attolia and The King of Attolia from my Library. I can't wait to read them!

Anne Elisabeth Stengl said...

Ooooh, I'm excited for you, Clara! So much good reading ahead! The Thief is good, The Queen of Attolia is great, and The King of Attolia is AMAZING!!!
