The Darkest Part of the Forest
In the media
A must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or twists of faery tales. I can guarantee that anyone will be surprised by its originality and strength
...a wickedly entertaining mash-up of genre conventions and enthusiastic subversions in which the perennial adolescent desire to be seen as normal takes on a whole new meaning.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
A rollocking story of evil faeries and teenage angst in modern day USA
This is a book of lies and lost memories. This is a book of tales and curses and love. This is Holly Black doing what she does best: with gorgeous prose that flows beautifully, complicated female characters and a story of back and forth, The Darkest Part of the Forest is an elaborate modern fairytale that subverts genre expectations.
