It's been two months since Laila was found lifeless on Kilshamble village green, not a mark on her. Rumour says she died of an overdose. Or maybe it was suicide? The autopsy found nothing, but somebody must know what happened.

Now Laila's sister Zara is ready to pick up the trail. But retracing her sister's footsteps takes her to David, a Judge at the dangerous heart of an

*Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book. This in no way affects my opinion.

Following on from The Wren Hunt, The Wickerlight takes on a slightly different cast of characters, this time following David – one of the antagonists of The Wren Hunt – and Zara, a new character. Zara and her family move to Kilshamble in hopes of a new start, but merely 10 months into the move, Zara’s sister – Laila – is found dead. Weird thing is, there’

AHHH I really hope this is what I think it is! Either way, Watson beautifully intertwines magic and nature and I’m so excited for this

I found The Wickerlight a lot easier to get into than The Wren Hunt and I really liked it.
It has the same dark, mysterious air to it which is one of the things I liked most about The Wren Hunt.

It was nice to have more of an insight into David and his life this time around. After disliking him quite a bit in The Wren Hunt, The Wickerlight showed a deeper, more sensitive side to him and the love he has for his brother in particular is very heartwarming. It makes him seem less of the monster that h

I don't know what it is about these books but the magic feels so real and I feel like I'm really in the story and feeling what the characters are feeling (which led to some intense feelings and my mind being all over the place). It feels creepy and mystical and magical and I love it (though feel a bit misplaced in the real world every time I put down the book).
I enjoyed this one even more than the first book - I loved getting a POV from David, which I wouldn't have expected to enjoy

Reading this book is like slipping into another world that's dark and earthy and magical. It's a little bit unsettling and utterly gorgeous. I didn't want to leave, and I read the last few chapters slowly to savor them. I loved THE WREN HUNT and wasn't sure this could top it, but it did. As always, Mary Watson's prose is exquisite and spare, the worldbuilding is lush and immersive, and the characters are incredibly compelling. I went from hating David to fully understanding him and his past. I c ...more

I loved this book and hope a third book is in the works. I feel there’s so much more to be told within the characters lives. I love how Mary weaves a story just as magically and mysteriously as the folklore , magic and mysteries in the plot itself are said to be.
