A truly enchanting story. Well written with a marvelous plot. A story for adults and children. Has a princess, a dragon, an evil wizard a king and castle, and a hero. Contains everything a good fairy tale should have. I highly recommend.

Do you seek out beautiful writing? A story to read to children? A tale for your own enjoyment? The Golden Amulet fits the bill.
I’m not easily enchanted but this story’s cadence is spell-binding. The prose, as befits a fairytale, is simple and clear yet rich in imagery. The plot purveys a mythical tale: a ragamuffin-like Minstrel sacrifices himself to save a Princess and is shunned by a King; years of peace and prosperity follow but eventually darkness befalls the kingdom at the hands of a Dark Wizard; the Minstrel, who proves to be an eternally youthful wonder, returns, and ….
Read The Golden Amulet to get the rest. You won’t be disappointed.

Review by: Pierre Van Rooyen on Nov. 08, 2011 :
Oh boy, this beautifully imagined fairy story is a gem. It took me by surprise to discover the tale enchantingly presented in Old English. Lovely feel. Lovely voice. Also, the use of unexpected verbs and nouns shows the author has gone to a lot of trouble in putting this work together. The full colour artwork makes it worthwhile downloading the PDF colour version as well as the Kindle version. I have it both ways. No problem in giving Golden Amulet five stars. Pierre Van Rooyen.
