Publisher's Summary

A young girl's midnight séance awakens a long-slumbering malevolent spirit.…

A band of runaway orphans allies with an underground collective of saboteurs and plans a daring rescue of their friends, imprisoned in the belly of an industrial wasteland.…

Two old friends draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince….

As the fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

The third book in the Wildwood Chronicles is a rich, moving, and dazzling story, by turns funny and profound. Both Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis are at the height of their gifts with Wildwood Imperium.

Critic Reviews

"Meloy gives his antic imagination full rein to produce work that...is brilliantly sui generis." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Beautiful!

I'm in love with this trilogy! it's such a fun, easy read, full of twists and unexpected turns that leave you constantly questioning the outcome. Meloy created such depth in his characters and scenes I felt transported to Wildwood with each passing word, like I was a bird flitting to and fro, following the action, and seeing it with my own eyes. I am so grateful to have been a reader of this magnificent story. ❤️

Meloy's writing keeps us peeled

My son and I listen to this series, and can't put it down, Not only is the storyline magical and wise, it's message about our environment is hopeful. The main characters-children & preteens- are empowered to act bravely and listen to their intuition. As a reader, I love Meloy's wordsmithery and as a mom, I love the messages about humans and our relationship to the mysterious and sacred places in nature.
