Product description

When does travelling turn into running? Alice and her mum have spent most of Alice’s life on the road. Bad luck keeps biting at their heels, but they’ve always stayed one step ahead of it. That is, until Alice’s nan suddenly dies. As befits the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, she’s died in a forbidding forest: her spooky home estate of Hazel Wood. And when Alice’s mum is stolen away by a figure who claims to come from the twisted world of Nan’s stories, Alice knows their bad luck has finally caught up. Dare she enter the Hazel Wood to find her mum? Can fairy tales really come alive?

  • A suspenseful, lyrical dark fairy tale full of creepy twists
  • Perfect for fans of Jackson Pearce and Michelle Harrison
  • Frightening, magical and written with spellbinding lyricism
  • By a brilliant debut author, editor, blogger and journalist

“A winding, creepy, insidiously delicious novel. Utterly spectacular.” Melinda Salisbury

“Kept me up all night. I had every light burning… One of the very best books I’ve read in years.” Jennifer Niven
