Summary

17-year-old Alice discovers the dark fairy tales her grandmother published are true when she goes in search of her mother after she goes missing.

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice's life on the road, always a step ahead of the strange bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice's grandmother, the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate - the Hazel Wood - Alice learns how bad her luck can really get.

Her mother is stolen away - by a figure who claims to come from the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: STAY AWAY FROM THE HAZEL WOOD.

To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began...

NOTE: Contains strong language.

Book of the week

Inventive, atmospheric & intelligent magical tale that defies easy categorisation. Very creepy & slightly disturbing at times... definitely not for the faint hearted! A strong debut.
