Darkly Wood 11 draws the reader back to the terrifying wood with old characters and new ones. Holly and Charlie are skirting the wood, when Holly decides they will go in and explore. It all seems harmless enough to start with and that is the skill of this writer. He builds suspense expertly. There are lots of side stories, which help the reader build up what has happened in Darkly Wood in the past and why it is, as it is, now.
The significance of Holly is that she is Daisy May’s granddaughter, so Daisy May and her daughter decide that they must go and rescue Holly.
Daisy May has been told that what she thinks happened in the wood all those years ago was just a bad dream, and although Daisy May knows the truth in her heart, she has always wondered. Back in the woods again, she meets Woody and a new monster, but there is also Wormhold to deal with and he is far more threatening.
This is the second part of a trilogy, written with such skill that the story will stay with you long after you’ve finished the book. Highly recommended.
