"Great Book. Amazing Detail!"

"I have loved this book ever since I got it. It is fascinating and the author provides great descriptions for settings and characters in his book. Another great thing about it is that William D. Burt puts Christianity in his series. For any home-school mom looking for something for her kids to read, this is a great choice. If you are just looking for something to read, I recommend this book and the series.”

Amazon.com Reviewer: Sarah Heath—3 stars


"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 owl-faced griffins, tree-men, 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 many more adventures to be had with the Greencloaks! Throughout the books there are strong allegorical themes of Christianity. Self-sacrifice, the 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 titles 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!"
