From Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists, comes the stunning third book in the New York Times bestselling fantasy-adventure series the Wildwood Chronicles.

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 …

The fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

Wildwood Imperium is a mesmerizing and epic tale, at once firmly steeped in the classics of children’s literature and completely fresh at the same time. In this book, Colin Meloy continues to expand and enrich the magical world and cast of characters he created in Wildwood.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The third tome in the Wildwood Chronicles continues the quirky adventures of twelve-year-old Prue…Meloy is the Wes Anderson of authors…and he nails the tone of this gentle, but not inconsequential, adventure…It is a warm, comforting read, and its massive page count allows readers to further lose themselves in the enchanting stroll through some very unusual woods.”


  • “Wildly original tropes…Dramatic shifts in tone and mood—by turns politically astute and subversively witty, elegiac, droll and philosophical—are par for the course, while narrative style ranges from intimate to intergalactically distant…Like filmmaker Terry Gilliam, Meloy gives his antic imagination full rein to produce work that, if occasionally uneven, is brilliantly sui generis.”

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.
