“Darkly Wood” by Max Power is an amazing find if you like dark and sinister stories. Everyone who ever walked or got lost in a forest at night will appreciate the eeriness and spookiness of Darkly Wood. There’s history to the place, as our heroine Daisy finds out.
The opening description of the woods and the powerful Lord Terrence Darkly sets the tone perfectly for a dark, gripping and compelling read. A well-constructed ‘book within a book’ plot shows how skilled a storyteller Power is.
This is a very enjoyable and intense read, clever and entertaining. Highly recommended.
