Book Review - Willa of the Wood

Willa of the Wood

About the Book
From #1 New York Times best-selling author Robert Beatty comes a thrilling new series set in the magical world of Serafina.

Move without a sound. Steal without a trace.

Willa, a young night-spirit of the Great Smoky Mountains, is her clan's best thief. She creeps into the homes of day-folk under cover of darkness and takes what they won't miss. It's dangerous work-the day-folk kill whatever they do not understand--but Willa will do anything to win the approval of the padaran, the charismatic leader of the Faeran people.

When Willa's curiosity leaves her hurt and stranded in the day world, she calls upon an ancient, unbreakable bond to escape. Only then does she discover the truth: not all day-folk are the same, and the foundations that have guarded the Faeran for eons are under attack.

As forces of unfathomable destruction encroach on her home, Willa must decide who she truly is. To save the day-folk family that has become her own--and lift the curse that has robbed her people of their truth--Willa will meet deadly force with trusted alliance, violence with shelter, and an ever-changing world with a steady heartbeat of courage.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that brought forth a strong female character that my daughter loved reading about. The book moved quickly and engaged you from the beginning to the end of the book. My daughter actually did not want to put the book down. The book is one that we had to have my daughter take a break from or she would have just kept reading throughout the night. Even with this break she got done with the book in only a few days! My daughter said that she felt drawn into the book and into the world of the characters. This book really creates a story that is one that you can relate to and this was one of the main reasons my daughter gave as why she loved this book as much as she did!
