Review:

A must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or twists of faery tales. I can guarantee that anyone will be surprised by its originality and strength (THE GUARDIAN)

...a wickedly entertaining mash-up of genre conventions and enthusiastic subversions in which the perennial adolescent desire to be seen as normal takes on a whole new meaning. (THE NEW YORK TIMES)

A rollocking story of evil faeries and teenage angst in modern day USA (THE BOOKBAG)

This is a book of lies and lost memories. This is a book of tales and curses and love. This is Holly Black doing what she does best: with gorgeous prose that flows beautifully, complicated female characters and a story of back and forth, The Darkest Part of the Forest is an elaborate modern fairytale that subverts genre expectations. (THE BOOK SMUGGLERS)

The revival of the modern day fairytale continues its journey in this wonderful and surprising YA novel ... Black has crafted characters that are both innocent and naive yet strong and alluring (SCHOOL LIBRARIAN)

A rollocking story of evil faeries and teenage angst in modern day USA. A fairytale more Grimm than Disney. (THE BOOKBAG)

Black has expertly weaved a story which is totally unique, fascinating and modern, almost startling in its originality and strength of plot. The storyline is inventive and captivating, and I cannot comprehend how much imagination Black must have to craft something like that... a must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or twists of faery tales. I can guarantee that anyone will be surprised by its originality and strength, and I cannot wait to read more of Black's work. (EllatheBookworm GUARDIAN TEEN BOOKS)

A TALE OF FAIRY FOLK CASTS A SPELL: Holly Black... impressed with THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN, and this latest story is similarly engrossing. The typical young adult themes of racism, outsider status, peer pressure, and truth are addressed with freshness (Alex O’Connell The Times)

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Black has crafted characters that are both innocent and naive yet strong and alluring. (The School Librarian)

YOU definitely need your heart a stabbed a little with fairy swords so GO! GO! TRY THIS MAGNIFICENT CREATION! (Cait (Paper Fury, guest review) Of Spectacles and Books)
