Alice and her mother have spent most of her 17 years on the road. Always a step ahead of the bad luck that seems to find them wherever they go. When Alice’s grandmother, an author of popular dark fairy tales, dies on her estate The Hazel Wood. Then her mother ends up being taken by a supernatural creature from the Hinterland. Alice’s luck couldn’t get worse.
She has one lead- a message her mother left behind to stay away from the Hazel Wood. Now Alice must ally herself with a hardcore Hinterland super fan in her class, Ellery Finch, in order to get her mother back.
I’ve been dying to get my hands on a copy of this book. I got lucky and was given a copy via Netgalley (yay for Netgalley!). I’ve definitely been in a fairy tale reading mood and I’ve seen this book with its amazingly gorgeous cover all over the bookstagram community so I had to read it. This is definitely going to be one of my most favorite books from 2018.
It’s dark. Honestly the Hinterland scares the crap out of me. Reading this book late at night and going downstairs to get fruit loops alone was terrifying for me haha. I loved how the author has extremely unique fairy tales written into the book. Honestly the twist about 3/4 through the book absolutely blew my mind. Drop whatever you are doing and get your hands on a copy ASAP!
