Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the chance to review this title ahead of its release date.

When I read THE WICKED DEEP, I knew Shea Ernshaw would become an auto-buy author, so when I saw her sophomore work to review, I jumped at the chance. I'd been following her on Twitter and seeing all the posts she's made about Winterwood before it even had a title and I was PUMPED.

This story follows a girl named Nora, who comes from a long line of magical women. They have always been drawn to t

This is the type of young adult book that I hesitate to even label young adult. This story could take place at any age and honestly you don't think about their age as you're reading the story. I say this because it's true and because my boss doesn't understand why some adults enjoy young adult books. I could not put this book down. I'm sad it doesn't release until November because I want to share it with the world. It's the type of book that the minute you're down you can want to turn back to pa ...more

Hauntingly beautiful story about a lonely witch that finds mysterious things in the woods! Lyrical and poetic!
Shea creates a mysterious and daunting plot while pacing everything beautifully.
Strongly recommend for fans of Practical Magic, The Rules of Magic and The Raven Boys!
Every chapter ends in a riveting way that you can’t stop reading!
In my top 10 of favorites of the year. I will never be able to get Nora’s story out of my head.
