The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

The Darkest Part of the ForestThe Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

I love Holly Black and this dark world of Faerie folk living side by side in Fairfold is cunningly slow to unfold. So read very closely all the juicy details and bread crumbs... There is a horned boy asleep in a glass coffin in the forest; everyone knows and visits this landmark (and do all kinds of wild things in, on and around the coffin). As brother and sister, Hazel and Ben grow up they both love this boy and dream of freeing him from the evil that holds him captive. They even play at fighting evil in the forest with Ben's best friend, Jack---who is not quite human. For a deep read where all characters are struggling with their own demons and a town that has many secrets in their history--Black's book of faerie does not disappoint. There is horror, love, lies, and lots of dark fantasy---very alluring read.
