Description

Winter didn't ask to be the guardian of the wood, but when her dad inexplicably vanishes, she's the one who must protect travelers who accidentally slip through the wood's portals. The wood is poisoned, changing into something more sinister. Once brightly colored leaves are now bubbling inky black. Vicious creatures that live in the shadows are becoming bolder, torturing lost travelers. Winter must now put her trust in Henry--a young man from eighteenth century England who knows more than he should about the wood--in order to find the truth and those they've lost. Bobulski's eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.show more

Review quote

"Henry and Winter share flirtatious repartee and a sizzling chemistry, but the wood takes center stage as the main character and driving force of the plot. This interesting twist in storytelling makes this title a standout. VERDICT This provocative debut is a must-have for collections where fans of time travel are looking for their next fix."--School Library Journal "The concept is intriguing, and this is a good buy for larger collections."--Booklist "An ill-fated but still powerful romance, a warped good/bad guy with honorable but flawed intentions, and time travel portals--there's plenty to recommend in this clever novel."--BCCBshow more
