Publisher Description

A girl makes a secret sacrifice to the faerie king in this lush New York Times bestselling fantasy by author Holly Black

In the woods is a glass coffin. It rests on the ground, and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives....
Hazel and her brother, Ben, live in Fairfold, where humans and the Folk exist side by side. Since they were children, Hazel and Ben have been telling each other stories about the boy in the glass coffin, that he is a prince and they are valiant knights, pretending their prince would be different from the other faeries, the ones who made cruel bargains, lurked in the shadows of trees, and doomed tourists. But as Hazel grows up, she puts aside those stories. Hazel knows the horned boy will never wake.
Until one day, he does....
As the world turns upside down, Hazel has to become the knight she once pretended to be.
The Darkest Part of the Forest is bestselling author Holly Black's triumphant return to the opulent, enchanting faerie tales that launched her YA career.

I loved it

Such a sucker for faeries and Holly Black. Wished I would've bought this in paperback to keep forever but waiting till I got my hands on it to read it after the free preview was too much. I absolutely loved the characters, the story and setting. I hope she never stops writing not many faerie books out there and she is absolutely amazing at bringing this other world to life.

Love, life, and pinterest ,

Something missing

I actually liked this book. I thought it was an interesting story with a little mystery. I can't pinpoint exactly what I didn't like, I just felt like it was missing something.
