Following on from The Wren Hunt, The Wickerlight takes on a slightly different cast of characters, this time following David – one of the antagonists of The Wren Hunt – and Zara, a new character. Zara and her family move to Kilshamble in hopes of a new start, but merely 10 months into the move, Zara’s sister – Laila – is found dead. Weird thing is, there’s no apparent cause of death. By all tests and records, Laila was in perfect health…but she’s not. With no cause of death to be found, Zara starts digging, and the mystery soon turns a lot darker when she discovers Laila’s involvement with the local folklore…
For some unbeknownst reason, we over here in the UK have to wait until February for Heartless to be released. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC, and so now my review is coming at a strange in between place – where the US readers can relate (if they’ve read it), and the UK lot – as well as anywhere else it’s not released yet – are still waiting eagerly.
I find that kind of interesting, for some reason?
