A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction.
The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.
My Teaser ~
"She knew it somehow, an unshakeable instinct. Knew it in the way an animal senses a hunter. A shiver crawled over the back of her neck on spindly legs. She tried to keep her breathing steady and at the same time open her eyes just a slit. Something betrayed her. She wasn't sure what, but the moment she saw his gazed fixed on her, she realized by the bitter quirk of his lips that Jack had seen through her pretense." (pg 31-32)
