Into the Heartless Wood

We rated this book:


At the edge of the woods stands a cottage where an astronomer and his children live. Owen has charted the stars with his father for years, sending the findings to the king each month. One day, his little sister is drawn into the woods, where a witch and her siren daughters are luring men and women to their deaths. While searching for her, Owen meets the youngest of the tree sirens, a monster. Or is she? With war on the horizon and a past that could be their undoing, they must choose: family or who they’re meant to be?

The witch is more than she seems, the king is not who he says, and caught up in their war are two people on opposite sides. The main characters are unique, but most of the rest of the cast are a bit flat. Into the Heartless Wood is more than just a story about a boy falling in love with a monster, it’s about family and the fact that sometimes, what we think is true is not what is actually true. The writing style is like a fairy tale most of the time and sometimes, especially with one character’s point of view, it is almost like poetry.
