For fans of The Chronicles of Narnia comes the first book in the Wildwood Chronicles, the New York Times bestselling fantasy adventure series by Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists.

In Wildwood, Prue and her friend Curtis uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.

Wildwood captivates readers with the wonder and thrill of a secret world within the landscape of a modern city. It feels at once firmly steeped in the classics of children's literature and completely fresh at the same time.

    I have this on my bookshelf but have never read it. I need to, though, based on its rating.

          I didn't think I'd enjoy this book as much as I did, but ultimately, Prue's story ended up being too interesting to put down. Prue is out for a walk when suddenly her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and she goes through a lot, discovers a lot, and accomplishes a lot in the journey she goes through to get him back. Prue's town has always avoided what they call "The Impassable Wilderness" and it was really interesting to learn what secrets the wilderness had held for so many years. Definitely an adventurous book!

              I think this book is definitely one of my favorites. It's about a mysterious wood that's also pretty wild. I would recommend this to EVERYBODY!!!
