Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.

At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

Until one day, he does…

As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

My Thoughts

Oh My Oh My I just love love love Miss Holly Black books so far the ones that I have already read by her they all are absolutely Fantastic! And The Darkest Part Of The Forest is no different than her other amazing books. Miss Black can never steer me wrong, I totally love her writing style, the world, the plot and especially the character's she writes. They all are so amazingly rich and refreshing that I just love and can't stop reading about them. I literally could not put this book down that I actually finished it in two days. Yup it was that amazing for me. I really loved and enjoyed The Darkest Part Of The Forest that I am really sad to see it end. This is actually the first fae book that I read by Holly Black. I think she did an other fae books before this one that the series is called Modern Faerie Tales Series please correct me if I am wrong. I really want to read that series next because I think is set in NJ and that's is my home state plus it is a fae book I just love fae books! Now I am not going to go into any details about this brilliant book because I think you all should pick this book up. I highly do recommend this book to my fellow readers if you loved and enjoyed Miss Black others books you are totally going to love The Darkest Part Of The Forest and if you all are into fae books than this book is definitely for you to read! Now I am most definitely going to continue on too pick up more books by Holly Black and I just can't wait to read more of her works! Until Next Time My Friends!
