Currently Reading: The Woodcutter


The Woodcutter on the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

I have to share this book, The Woodcutter by Kate Danley. I’m just passed halfway and I’m going to be so sad when this book ends. It is such an intriguing and engaging read! Maybe it’s just me but the story and characters here are so fresh! As soon as I start reading, I’m pulled in and I just want to continue reading nonstop. Of course, I have to stop on and off to go do other things but that is beside the point.

The story is refreshing and mysterious and a bit chilly even! I love how the main hero is called simply “The Woodcutter”. The name is so simple and yet I feel there is a great mystery behind him. I can’t wait to find out. Then there is this character that is called “The Gentleman” and “The Queen”. There are many fairy tale characters in the story and were cleverly intertwined into the plot.

Here is the description from Amazon:

Deep within the Wood, a young woman lies dead. Not a mark on her body. No trace of her murderer. Only her chipped glass slippers hint at her identity.

The Woodcutter, keeper of the peace between the Twelve Kingdoms of Man and the Realm of the Faerie, must find the maiden’s killer before others share her fate. Guided by the wind and aided by three charmed axes won from the River God, the Woodcutter begins his hunt, searching for clues in the whispering dominions of the enchanted unknown.

But quickly he finds that one murdered maiden is not the only nefarious mystery afoot: one of Odin’s hellhounds has escaped, a sinister mansion appears where it shouldn’t, a pixie dust drug trade runs rampant, and more young girls go missing. Looming in the shadows is the malevolent, power-hungry queen, and she will stop at nothing to destroy the Twelve Kingdoms and annihilate the Royal Fae…unless the Woodcutter can outmaneuver her and save the gentle souls of the Wood.

Blending magic, heart-pounding suspense, and a dash of folklore, The Woodcutter is an extraordinary retelling of the realm of fairy tales.


Seriously, if you want to read something different but just as good, give this a try. If you’ve read it, let me know what you think. I seriously love it so far!
