Last week when I posted my middle-grade TBR, someone mentioned that Willa of the Wood gave them a massive book hangover. With a review like that I immediately put it on my list and I am happy to be partnering with @DisneyBooks today to celebrate its release! . “Move without a sound. Steal without a trace.” If you’re a fan of bestselling author Robert Beatty’s Serafina series, then you’ll be elated to know that #WillaoftheWood is set in the same world! (with Serafina and Braeden making appearances!) Willa of the Wood is the first book in a new middle-grade series set in the nighttime forest of the Great Smoky Mountains. (full synopsis below) . I love when authors revisit beloved book worlds with new characters and am looking forward to meeting this new little night thief in a world of mystery and magic that Beatty is known for. . Do you enjoy spin off series? . #willaofthewood #robertbeatty #serafinabooks . Willa, a young night-spirit of the Great Smoky Mountains, is her clan’s best thief. She creeps into the homes of day-folk under cover of darkness and takes what they won’t miss. It’s dangerous work—the day-folk kill whatever they do not understand--but Willa will do anything to win the approval of the padaran, the charismatic leader of the Faeran people. When Willa's curiosity leaves her hurt and stranded in the day world, she calls upon an ancient, unbreakable bond to escape. Only then does she discover the truth: not all day-folk are the same, and the foundations that have guarded the Faeran for eons are under attack. As forces of unfathomable destruction encroach on her home, Willa must decide who she truly is. To save the day-folk family that has become her own--and lift the curse that has robbed her people of their truth--Willa will meet deadly force with trusted alliance, violence with shelter, and an ever-changing world with a steady heartbeat of courage.
