ABOUT THE BOOK:
This month’s adult book option takes us to cold dark land in the north, to a country bordered by a strange twisted forest that no one can enter or escape. Centuries ago two people made a bargain with the forest to escape their fates in exchange for their servitude, and ultimately their blood. Generations later their descendants find themselves still bound to this bargain, through no fault or choice of their own. As part of this bargain, a young woman is sacrificed to the forest on her twentieth birthday as her twin looks on helplessly, unable to stop it.
What the twin does not know is that her sister has long accepted this sacrifice for reasons entirely her own -- to keep a violent secret power away from those she loves. She fully expects to die, but instead finds herself in the middle of the forest, faced with a far stranger fate than mere death, standing with a man she should fear but cannot help but be drawn to. Together they must decipher what it is the forest truly wants of them, and work together to protect the outside world from shadows darker and more dangerous than any threat the forest itself might pose. Meanwhile, the twin turns to blasphemy and treachery in an effort to save her sister from the forest that took her away.
With evocative lyrical prose, this debut author weaves a dark fairy tale about duty, sacrifice, and love. It is an intense romantic love story between two tortured, haunted people. But it is equally a story about twin sisters, and the lengths they will go to in order to save each other. This novel asks if it is possible to go too far, even in the name of love. And it asks us to consider the consequences of difficult decisions, and the harms we may inflict even in an effort to save and protect.
