The Wild Wood – Book 1

The Wild Wood Cover WP1

“The Wild Wood series is a rich, fantastical world you will want to explore! You will be surprised at the twists and turns around every corner. I loved Cecily and her band of unlikely heroes.” Kasie West, author of Pivot Point, Split Second, and The Distance Between Us

Available on Amazon, B&N, and Kobo

In the town of Dunlowe, being different can be deadly. No one knows this better than the seven girls born on the exact same day, at the exact same time. From birth, they’ve been feared, judged, and controlled. And yet, still loved by their families. Still hoping for a future. Still believing that acceptance would one day come. As their seventeenth birthday approaches, events occur that leave Cecily Daye and the other girls grasping with the possibility that their oppressors might have been right about them all along. Maybe they are as evil as the town has believed. But without an answer, they must make a choice when the town turns on them: to die or to run to the one place no person would follow—they must enter The Wild Wood.

What People Are Saying about The Wild Wood

“A suspenseful story about friends, family and sacrifice… The town of Dunlowe, shivering under Pastor Rowe’s rule, is sufficiently enigmatic-not to mention terrifying-to create suspense and deliver thrills.” Kirkus Reviews
