A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.

Jenny Wilton on
 
This is a lovely little book, with well-defined characters and a storyline that never falters. It combines many features of medieval folklore into a background so plausible that I found myself looking at many of the old myths and legends in a new way, without ever detracting from the main story. The only weakness is the ending, which doesn't really seem possible in the mythological framework - I suspect that the author had to rewrite it to a happy ending to satisfy her readers, which it certainly does.
