The second book in J. A. White’s critically acclaimed middle grade fantasy series continues the fantastical story of Kara and her journey into the Thickety.
After Kara Westfall’s village turns on her for practicing witchcraft, she and her brother Taff flee to the one place they know they won’t be followed: the Thickety. Only this time the forest demon Sordyr is intent on keeping them there. Sordyr is not the Thickety’s only danger: unknown magic lurks behind every twist and shadow of the path. Matters are further complicated when Kara and Taff discover Mary Kettle, an infamous witch with an unspeakable past—everything their village fears about magic.
When Mary reveals that the path leading out of the Thickety is guarded by Imogen, a creature more monster than human, Kara is hesitant to trust her. But when she offers to help Kara learn to cast magic without a grimoire, she could be Kara and Taff’s only hope for escape … or the first step down a dark and wicked path.
