Enjoyable for children and adults alike!
Darkwood, by M.E. Breen, is a story about a young girl named Annie, who lives with a couple she calls her “aunt and uncle.” She had an older sister, but she was told she was killed by the kinderstalk, a mysterious creature. The people in the town use a stone called ringstone, as money. In this story, parents tell everyone that the kinderstalk is killing their children, when in reality, the parents are selling their children to mine ringstone. When Annie found out that her aunt and uncle had already sold her, she stole the ringstone and ran away. This story follows Annie on her journey, who eventually gets caught by the mine workers and discovers all the children who were supposedly killed by the kinderstalk. In the end, Annie finds out a big secret about herself and her family, and saves the town.
Children young and old will enjoy reading this book — it was hard to put down because at any moment in the book, Annie was in danger. You won’t want to miss what happens next. Even though the book is recommended for young teens, adults would be interested in it as well.
We highly recommend this book — it is very well-written and is sure to keep your interest. Adults will also find it enjoyable.
