Title: Hush, The Woods Are Darker Still
Author: L. V. Russell
Series: The Wicked Woods Chronicles, book 2
Genre: Fantasy / Dark Romance
With an ancient curse now broken, Teya Jenkins, the last Mortal Queen of Seelie, is forced to flee the cruel lands of Faerie and return home.
But the human world offers little kindness to her, or to the faerie who stole her heart.
Help is offered by those who dwell in the shadows, but nothing in Faerie is without a price.
With a new King upon the Unseelie throne, and a would-be Queen at her back, Teya must decide which path to take and who to trust or risk losing everything.
Oh, the woods are dark and wicked.
Picking up after the events of Darling, There Are Wolves In The Woods, Teya and Lathaniel are on the run, trying to find a way to confront the cruel and murderous faerie, Luthien.
In order to survive, they’re forced to make an alliance that could just as easily signal their deaths. With every new turn, they face unknown threats and are forced to make impossible decisions, but they do have one constant between them — each other.
This was a tumultuous book full of twists and turns and I loved every minute of it. The cliffhanger at the end hit me hard, and yet, at the same time, it felt inevitable — which is a testament to L. V. Russell’s storytelling abilities.
I can’t wait to finish Far Beneath The Wicked Woods to find out what happens next.
Until next time,
