The Golden Wood had elements that remind me of some of my very favorite stories Parts reminded me of Robin Hood, Lord of the Rings, and even Narnia From an exiled group roaming the woods, wise tree folk, and talking animals, be prepared to delve into an adventure Though it had portions that were similar to other fables, the story was completely the author’s own William Burt created a world in which owlfaced griffins, treemen, and exiled kings all exist together Legend becomes reality in the world of Lucambra.A fun bonus were the wonderful pictures found within the book They helped the story to really come to life Turning the last page in The Golden Wood is a bit bittersweet, but thankfully, there are seven books total in the series, so, no need to say goodbye, there are manyadventures to be had with the Greencloaks! Throughout the books there are strong allegorical themes of Christianity Selfsacrifice, a mention of a creator, and a King, who died on a tree for the love of all play an important role in The Golden Wood Even though I haven’t read the first two in this series, it didn’t take long for me to get invested in the story The Golden Wood was extremely enjoyable for me, even though I didn’t know the entire background of the story This book is enjoyable enough to entertain preteens and challenging enough to occupy adults The Golden Wood is definitely a great Christian young adult fantasy book to add to your shelves, whether you are 12 or 82!The Wordsmith Journal strives to guide readers to books of personal interest, with the understanding and respect that what appeals to some may not appeal to others Therefore we attempt to keep our reviews focused on content, genre and style The rating is necessary to make use of Goodreads andIt reflects the reviewer’s own level of enjoyment, but the review is intended to be informative for the benefit of all readers.

It's a little longer than some of the other sequels, I guess, but I couldn't put it down The fantasy worlds and characters the author has created really drew me in It's about a king who invades Lucambra to steal the Greencloaks' treasure (Only they don't have any.) There's some pretty cool scenes here that make me want to continue reading the series When I read the last page of this book, I felt sad and happy Sad because the book was done, but happy because there areadventures in the next books in the series I'm really looking forward to reading The Greenstones. This is the best book yet in the King of the Trees series It's got lots of new characters, such as the king of Thalmos and the queen of the Golden Wood The author also introduces a different kind of griffin There are also some cool battle scenes, when the king of Thalmos invades Lucambra I love it that all these books wrap up with happy endings, such as weddings There's something Christmasy about them, too It's fun to figure out the riddles and the hidden meanings.
