After her father goes missing in the woods that they protect, Winter tries to seek the truth in what happened, why the wood is changing, and what it all has to do with the arrival of a mysterious stranger in this thrilling YA debut.
When Winter’s dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can't help but think there's more to her dad's disappearance than she's being told.
She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter’s dad.
The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister—torturing travelers lost it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.
Bobulski’s eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.
I’ve been slowly getting into YA thrillers, especially the ones that are more creepy mysteries with twists and turns over the ones that are more gory. And I love when they have fantasy elements as well! You never know what’s going to happen! So when I saw this, I was pretty excited. It’s also starting to bring in some good reviews, which is making me even more excited for it! And another bonus? Several of the reviews said the cover isn’t very representative of the book and it is not in fact a bloody book. So while I actually prefer covers that give little hints about what’s inside, I’m sort of glad this one doesn’t mean there’s tons of blood dripping all over the place in the book. I’m hoping to get the chance to read this sometime next month! And I hope you guys will keep your eyes open for it too!
What are you waiting on this week?
