Waiting on Wednesday (12) - The Darkest Part of the Forest

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers

Publication Date: January 13th, 2015

Goodreads Summary:
Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.

At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

Until one day, he does…

As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

Why Forest?
Holly Black is one of my favorite authors. Everything written by her is so magical and captivating and I almost always get swept up with the plot and characters. Her newest book will probably be no different for me. I'm so excited for this dark, twisty book about the Fae that I was even about to buy copies of this book for holiday presents until I realized that it didn't come out until next year (Oops! maybe in 2015).
