A young girl's midnight séance awakens a long-slumbering malevolent spirit . . .

A band of runaway orphans allies with an underground collective of saboteurs and plans a daring rescue of their friends, imprisoned in the belly of an industrial wasteland . . .

Two old friends draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince . . .

As the fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

The third book in the Wildwood Chronicles is a rich, moving, and dazzling story, by turns funny and profound. Both Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis are at the height of their gifts with Wildwood Imperium.

Om forfatteren

Colin Meloy once wrote Ray Bradbury a letter, informing him that he 'considered himself an author too'. He was ten. Since then, Colin has gone on to be the singer and songwriter for the band The Decemberists, where he channels all of his weird ideas into weird songs. With the Wildwood Chronicles, he is now channeling those ideas into novels.

As a child, Carson Ellis loved exploring the woods, drawing and nursing wounded animals back to health. As an adult, little has changed - except she is now the acclaimed illustrator of several books for children, including Lemony Snicket's The Composer is Dead, Dillweed's Revenge by Florence Parry Heide, and The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. Colin and Carson live with their sons, Hank and Milo, in Portland, Oregon, quite near the Impassable Wilderness.

LEMONY SNICKET

«A richly satisfying weave of reality and fantasy»

* New York Times *

«A haunting and beautiful adventure. Brilliant»

MATT HAIG

«Irresistible»

TRENTON LEE STEWART

«Droll and ornate, elegiac and romantic - the sequel to Wildwood brings readers deeper into and under the pine-scented, magical world . . . The incomparable Ellis more than rises to the challenge - her sly, wistful, abundant illustrations provide an emotional through line»

* Kirkus Reviews *

«This vivid picaresque fantasy . . . with stylish line drawings and colour plates . . . is an unpretentiously written tale with a strong start, an engaging denouement and a green theme»

Nicolette Jones, * Sunday Times Culture Magazine *

«[Wildwood] is like the wild, strange forest it describes. It is full of suspense and danger and frightening things the world has never seen, and once I stepped inside I never wanted to leave»

LEMONY SNICKET, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events

«A beautiful object and a beautiful read. One half fairy tale, one half coming-of-age story, one half unrepentantly gorgeous work of art, this book is overflowing with gifts»
