There’s a reason this book is getting so much buzz....it’s just fantastic. Like a combination of Narnia meets The Library at Mount Char....it has lightness and irony and extreme darkness. E.L.

I highly recommend this book to all fantasy lovers....fans of Lainy Taylor and Lev Grossman and Neil Gaiman and Scott Hawkins will enjoy this immensely.

I love the ending and the way the author was able to wrap it all up in an unexpected way. Definitely recommend reading, especially the second part (winterwood).
