Any girl who goes into the Forbidden Forest never comes out again. Except the one who did.
Larkin should have been watching her little sister, should have paid more attention to the trees looming over her family’s fields. Now Sela is gone. Knowing full well the danger of the forest and its beast, Larkin goes after her anyway. With her sister clutched in her arms, she manages to escape, but not before discovering the truth lurking beneath the wicked boughs.
She may have evaded the beast once, but with the full force of his magic now fixated on her, she isn’t sure how much longer she can resist.
This book was exactly what I needed to read even though I didn't know it. When Amber Argyle says she has a new book coming out, I'm the girl in the front of the line with my hand raised, jumping up and down saying, "pick me, pick me!" I think what draws me to her books is the way she creates original and fascinating places and people that just pull me right in. Her books are outside my normal, go to genre but I really love that. Fantasy isn't usually my favorite, but when it comes to Amber Argyle, it is. It gives me a well needed breath of fresh air.
I was intrigued by this book from the very first chapters. It perked up my imagination and my curiosity. I just had to know what was going to happen. That feeling continued throughout the whole book. I love when a book can engage me so entirely. And now, even days later as I write this, I am still thinking about this book. I want more. I want the next book now!
This book has it all- scary creatures, strong characters, magical powers, vivid and varying places and the ever needed theme of good versus evil. There is love and betrayal, light and darkness. It was an incredibly fun adventure and I loved every single minute of it.
Content: some violence, peril, death.
