Book Talk & Giveaway: THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black

My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won't find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could've been better or what worked or didn't work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it's here I probably think it won't injure your brain if you read it.

Everyone who lives in Fairfield knows better than to wander into the woods, or antagonize some of the less than human residents of their town. It may be a go-to location for tourists looking to spot a fairy or hoping to live out a real life fairy tale - but that doesn't mean it's safe. Every now and then they lose a tourist, but the townspeople are not fair game.

The glass coffin in the middle of the woods attracts a lot of those tourists, the horned sleeping boy inside drawing them in. But when the unbreakable coffin shatters, and the boy is free, lifelong residents Hazel and Ben know they must do something - because suddenly townspeople are being killed, and all bets are off.

As children they played at being knights of the woods, arming themselves with sticks and stones to take down what they knew lived there. Now there are threats that they may need real weapons to fight  - and more importantly - they have to decide whose side they're on.

Enter below to win an ARC!
