"Rose Red trusts no one with her secret. She hides in the forest, her face veiled in rags, shunning the company of all save her old father and her nanny goat. Her life is bleak and lonely.Until she meets a privileged young man sent to spend his summer in the mountains. Leo, a lonely lad, befriends Rose Red, and together they begin hunting for the Mountain Monster which, rumor says, stalks these lands. But the hunt which began as a game holds greater risk than Leo supposes. Rose Red can scarcely guess at the consequences should he insist on continuing his search. Dare she trust him with her secret? Or tell him what dwells at the top of the mountain in the cave only she can find? Above all, when Leo asks Rose Red to leave the mountain and follow him to the low country, dare she agree and risk the wrath of a Monster that is all too real?", viewed June 21, 2011.

This is a companion story to Stengl's first novel, Heartless. In this book, we get to know the background story of Lionheart and his friend, Rose Red. The characters are flawed and at times you don't even like them because of the decisions they make, but it's so real. There were parts that I cried at and parts that I was actually scared. I recommend it for teens and adults. I am excited to read more of this author's books.

The Tales of Goldstone Wood have a wonderful Christian overtone, but the characters are not immediately recognizeable as familiar figures. Stengl paints a complex picture that keeps readers squinting to determine who they can trust. I liked Veiled Rose better than Heartless because of this intricacy.

I enjoyed the first book, Heartless, more than Veiled Rose. I absolutely loved the relationship between Una and Aethelbald had. The ending of Heartless was awesome. Though I did not enjoy Veiled Rose as I did the first book, it was a good book, and I would read it again.
