While not drawing on any one fairy tale alone, the themes and atmosphere of those tales are apparent in this book. The primary narrator Cerys is the gardener's daughter who possesses a potentially dangerous secret - she has magical powers (or perhaps a curse). In the kingdom of Aloriya, only the monarch is supposed to have magic. However, when the time comes to crown a new monarch - Cerys' friend Anwen - everything goes wrong. Cerys ends up fleeing with a 300-year-old crown and a friendly fox in desperate quest to save her friend and her home from the dark curse of the Wildwood. Overall, this book was a fun, fast read. Some elements of the worldbuilding felt forced and not quite fleshed out, but by and large, that didn't take too much away from the story. ( )

Ok, I loved this story so very much. It starts out strong with action within the first two chapters. It's an amazing story about enchantments, curses, friendship, bravery, love, and adventure. The female main character is strong and compassionate. The male main character fights against his nature to be there for her.

I prayed I was going to love this book. When I saw this cover I fell in love. Then to find out it was written by the same author who wrote the Heart of Iron series was even better, and she did not disappoint me at all. I got my copy from the library, but this is one of the books that I will probably buy cause why wouldn't I want to own this amazingly beautiful book. ( )

While some of the eventual reveals will be deciphered early on by astute readers, that's a very trivial issue as this story has so much action and twists that it is easy to open the book and get lost in the story almost immediately. A very satisfying tale and one that libraries where fantasy with dark twists are popular, should buy. ( )

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book (I think). I got an eGalley of this from NetGalley to review.

Story (5/5): This was very good and I liked it a lot. It's quite a departure from Poston's other series (Heart of Iron, Once Upon a Con). This has a classic fairy tale feel to it but also a lot of action and adventure along with some witty banter. I loved the dark fairy tale vibe to this story. There are some fun twists and turns to the story, some of them were predictable and some of them were not. I really enjoyed the adventure and the way everything was resolved. This seems to be a stand alone story but there are hints that there may be stories about some of the other characters to come, which I would love to see.

Cerys lives in an isolated city where King Sunder ruled with a magic crown that protected everyone from the evil forest and the monsters that surround the city. Cerys's best friend, Anwen, is set to inherit the crown after King Sunder's death but then everything goes horribly wrong. Cerys is left to venture through the evil forest with only Fox (her pet fox) by her side and her strange magic (that makes her blood grow vegetation) to help her through. Her and Fox are searching for the lost city in the woods that should be able to save them.

Characters (4/5): Cerys was an okay character but came off as a bit vanilla to me at times. I absolutely adored Fox, he was funny and witty and complex. Some of the side characters were more interesting than Cerys and sounds like they might feature in their own stories at some point.

Setting (5/5): I loved the setting of this evil forest, it was so creative and well described. Poston did a great job of developing the setting here and really making it come alive.

Writing Style (4/5): I always enjoy Poston's ideas for stories, however I am not completely sold on her writing style. It's technically well done but always seems to be lacking a little more description or something to give it a bit more depth and complexity. A vague complaint I know, but I have read all of her books to date and am always left feeling like, "Well, I liked that story but I just felt like it was a but thin at points."

My Summary (4.5/5): Overall I would definitely recommend if you love dark fairy tales and adventures. This was well done and there aren't a lot of books like this out there. If future books are released that are off-shoots from this one I definitely plan on checking them out. ( )
