Publisher's Summary

In this darkly imaginative debut novel full of myth, magic, romance, and mystery, a Princeton freshman is drawn into a love triangle with two enigmatic brothers and discovers terrifying secrets about her family and herself - a bewitching blend of Twilight, The Secret History, Jane Eyre, and A Discovery of Witches.

For every world, there is an underworld.

Arriving at Princeton for her freshman year, Thea Slavin finds herself alone, a stranger in a strange land. Away from her family and her Eastern European homeland for the first time, she struggles to adapt to unfamiliar American ways and the challenges of college life - including a young man whose brooding good looks and murky past intrigue her. Drawn to the elusive Rhys and his equally handsome and mysterious brother Jake, she ventures into a sensual mythic underworld as irresistible as it is dangerous.

In this shadow world that seems to evoke Greek mythology and the Bulgarian legends of the samodivi, or "wildalones" - forest witches who beguile and entrap men - Thea will discover a family secret bound to transform her forever... if she can accept that dead doesn't always mean gone, and love doesn't always distinguish between the two.

Mesmerizing and addictive, Wildalone is a thrilling blend of the modern and the fantastical. Krassi Zourkova creates an atmospheric world filled with rich characters as compelling as those of Diana Gabaldon, Deborah Harkness, and Stephenie Meyer.

    A story never told before.

    That's just not an option for me.

    Story
    "Subtly paranormal romance"
    What made the experience of listening to Wildalone the most enjoyable?

    The narration was a perfect fit for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although I began to wonder if this was purely a romance, it did have an aura of the mythical running throughout. The story develops around a 'mistake' , seems rather unlikely to me. However I really enjoyed the musical references and, for me, the different take on fantasy.


    Which character – as performed by Barrie Kreinik – was your favourite?

    No favourites, Barrie definately added hugely to my ratings for this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing had a great emotional pull.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a lot of fantasy books, this one was different from most of the contemporary in a good way. Overall I enjoyed it and was glad I'd bought it. A satisfying purchase that I virtually listened to none stop till it ended! (BTW I too was a bit disappointed by the ending)
