Ever since Prue McKeel returned home from the Impassable Wilderness after rescuing her brother from the malevolent Dowager Governess, life has been pretty dull. School holds no interest for her, and her new science teacher keeps getting on her case about her dismal test scores and daydreaming in class. Her mind is constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood, where her friend Curtis still remains as a bandit-in-training.

But all is not well in that world. Dark assassins with mysterious motives conspire to settle the scores of an unknown client. A titan of industry employs inmates from his orphanage to work in his machine shop, all the while obsessing over the exploitation of the Impassable Wilderness. And, in what will be their greatest challenge yet, Prue and Curtis are thrown together again to save themselves and the lives of their friends and to bring unity to a divided country. But in order to do that, they must go under Wildwood.

In Under Wildwood, Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis reveal new dimensions of the epic fantasy-adventure series begun with the critically acclaimed, bestselling Wildwood.

    " Prue McKeel is bored in school, but becomes the target of a deadly assassin. She is rescued by her friends Curtis (and Septimus the rat), and returns to the Impassable Wilderness. Once there, she and her friends are charged with reanimating the dead son of the DOwager Governess again to save the inhabitants. To succeed, they seek out the two collaborators, who had previously succeeded. Meanwhile, Curtis's sisters Rachel and Elsie are left at the local orphanage by their parents who are looking for Curtis. Nice illustrations are more than offset by the book's completely open ending, where nothing was resolved. "

About the Author
Author Colin Meloy

Colin Meloy once wrote Ray Bradbury a letter, informing him that he “considered himself an author too,” when he was ten. Since then, he has gone on to be the singer and songwriter for the band the Decemberists, where he channels all of his weird ideas into weird songs. With the Wildwood Chronicles, he now channels those ideas into novels. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his family.
