Waiting on Wednesday: The Darkest Part of the Forest

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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?




First of all, look at that cover. I mean come on! That cover is so mesmerizing. I'm really loving that this book has fae in it, I never get to read books about fairies who are always far more dangerous than you would think they would be. The Darkest Part of the Forest just sounds magical and wonderful and I want to read it!!!

Release Date: January 13th 2014



What book are you eagerly waiting on?

  7. I love the cover as well! I hope it doesn't come out as one of those glossy covers, haha! And yes, I don't get to read a lot of Fae books, either, even if there are a lot of them. And I'm waiting for a Holly Black book I'll actually like.

    Lovely pick!

    1. I don't mind glossy covers - do you mean the shiny ones?
      I really want to give Holly Black I try like I never did when I was a kid.

    1. I can see where you get creepy from this book but that's half the excitement - the unknown (:
