Review : The Darkest Part of The Forest by Holly Black

“Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.
At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.
Until one day, he does…
As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?”

This book was weird. Weird in a very, very good way. The kind of weird that makes it impossible to put the book down. You just need to keep on reading, need to see how this whole thing will turn out. It was glorious. Holly black is such an incredible writer. She’s a queen of supernatural stand-alones. Her words are beautiful, i found myself rereading some parts because wow. That’s what i call some good writing. The storyline was entertaining and intriguing. Very dark also, and magical. I love how people of this little town just accepted the supernatural in their daily life. The characters were great too. Hazel was fun to follow, i loved the fact that she wanted to be a knight. And Ben, Ben was such a interesting character. I really wanted more of him and of his love interest too. I still want more of them. ❤ 

Overall, this book was incredible. So fun and magical and never a boring moment.
