It kind of reminded me of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables, but with a nature setting rather than city. Churchill certainly has a style similar to Hugo.
"You are a fool to determine my place in this forest! It has been my home for centuries, yet you enter and call it your own, claiming you have the right to criticize my devotion to this forest. I see now you are like the rest of that filthy town, convinced my veins flow with cold!”
Beautiful imagery, and detailed descriptions. It read more like a legend/tale rather than a deep novel, but had some very strong themes particularly man vs. nature, which is indeed a dark reflection of reality. Churchill is definitely an author to watch out for, an absolute excellent read.

I was hooked from page 1 and couldn't put this book down. I absolutely loved the book cover! That alone would have made me grab the book off the shelf.
This is a Fantasy story with a very dark and unique plot. The author gives such dark, deep and detailed descriptions of the town, the forrest, and all of the characters, she brings this world to vivid life [ just not vivid COLOR ;-) because the story is dark ].
There are SO many lessons/discussions that could come from this book: Man vs Nature, Good vs Evil, Mans inhumanity to man, and so many more. This book has a “story-teller quality. This would be an excellent book for school libraries! I would easily and happily recommend this book for Middle School age and older.
Thank you Andrea for allowing me to read your book in exchange for my honest review. I will definitely be watching for future books :-)
I received a complimentary copy for review.
This was the first book I've read by Andrea and I have to say, I love her way of storytelling. It made me feel like this was actually a bedtime story that's a little in the darker side and I loved that. It had that lulling and comforting feel to it. At least in my opinion.
This book takes place in an isolated village in the middle of the woods that is forced into seclusion due to a creature haunting the forest surrounding it. If you step into the woods, you die.
I really loved the unique names Andrea used in this story. For example, the main character's name is Uallas. It's one of my favorite character names so far.
Although I was fascinated with the darker aspects of the story, I still couldn't find a way to get attached to the characters. I didn't mind them at all but I also didn't love them. I absolutely loved that cliffhanger though. It wrapped up the bedtime story feel perfectly.
The Lerewood forest is said to be haunted by Ilere, a cursed creature who lives in the woods. Anyone who goes into the woods... dies.
Here in Lerewood we meet a man named Uallas. Uallas is not very liked by his family and refused to go home one day. He then decided to run straight into the forest. Does he find Ilere in the forest? Does Uallas die? I obviously can not tell you guys what happens, so you will have to pick up a copy of this book to find out!
This book was very entertaining and fun to read! I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something short and creepy.
