There’s a village that made a deal with the devil who lived in the forest next to it (Devil’s Forest). The deal consists in sacrificing the best young man of the village every Slaughter Moon for receiving in return prosperity and good health for everyone else in the village.
But this time the Slaughter Moon arrives earlier than before, it seems that something went wrong with the last sacrifice.
The new sacrifice is Rhun Sayer who accepts his destiny willingly, but his best friends the witch Mairwen Grace and Arthur Couch don’t want to lose him, so they’ll do everything they can for helping their friend.
Well, I must say that I expected more of this book. I thought that the story was good and I really wanted to read it. I can’t deny that there are exciting moments, twists in the plot and dark and creepy creatures, but I didn’t like this book as much as I’ve thought. Besides, at the beginning I was confused with the relationship between the three main characters who weren’t very interesting for me.
What I liked was to imagine the Devil’s Forest and its creatures. And I want to highlight that love and friendship were very important in the story.
