Oh how I wanted to love this.Book 8 of 30 for my 30 day reading challenge A sweet, shortish m m fantasy romance novella, with a folklore ish background Fans of T Kingfisher will like this, though it doesn t quite have the bite under the kindness that makes Kingfisher exceptional It s a very nice read, though I have to admit the cover and publisher primed me to expect something a lot darker and stranger, so I felt slightly off the mark throughout, which is my problem rather than the book s The cover is stunning, mind. 3.5 stars Silver in the Wood reads like a forest fairytale It could be seen like a loose m m retelling of the Green Man myths, so it s fitting that this is a story about rebirth and reawakening, not only of nature after spring but of people after toxic relationships.It s

and reawakening, not only of nature after spring but of people after toxic relationships.It s a quiet, slow story, and if at first I thought that the pacing was odd things happen too quickly, but the book is still slow I realized that in a way it was a reflection of how the main character, who is part of the wood, experienced time himself.This is also one of the best plant magic stories I ve ever read Not only it s about a vaguely creepy wood, it actually talks about which trees there are in detail elms, oaks, and even a mention of gorse I love gorse and there are scenes in which roots and vines are weapons.What didn t work for me as much was the romance, as this is barely longer than 100 pages and the characters interact for only half of them I thought it was cute, but I didn t feel it.At times it reminded me a bit of Witchmark for the sweet romance between a human and a paranormal creature, at times it reminded me of Strange Grace for the isolated town in the wood and the terrible things that lurk in it, and I d definitely recommend it to everyone who liked those books Wow Wow I can t believe I didn t read this sooner, because once I started it, I devoured it in a single sitting I didn t expect it to be so beautiful and so emotional I ll review this once I can stop feeling too many things RTC Thank goodness for the cover reveal of book two or I don t know when I would ve prioritized picking this one up SILVER IN THE WOOD is a slow unfurling novella about the bargains made with old gods, the darkness of the wood, and new beginnings at the end of things This

caretaker and Tesh cleverly tells us the story of how things came to be as the curious new owner of Greenhollow Hall is researching local legends and myth And it s when things go sideways, and a new character is introduced, that we somehow get a whole lotworldbuilding that neither feels crammed down your throat or, considering the word count, too big for the story But it s the backstory that really feels rich, twisty, and also a little sad.This novella was perfectly paced to leave you satisfied and yet wanting to read on and my only complaint is there isn t yet.3.75 stars This review can

of fantasy elements and folklore featuring forgotten gods.The pages are filled with a particular dark and gritty undertone that tell a story of death, rebirth, and transcendence I couldn t shake the overwhelming sadness that chased me throughout the pages and continued to haunt my thoughts days later I often have trouble connecting to stories that are this short However, Emily Tesh is talented at evoking emotion and transporting the reader directly into the story with very few words Take this line, for exampleAt once slow deep green rolled over him He took a breath, and another, smelling old rotting leaves and healthy growth and autumn light He felt almost as though he could have planted his feet and become a tree himself, a strong oak reaching up to the sky, brother of the old oak who ruled the wood I became spellbound waiting through the days in, nights out alongside Tobias The ending was fitting and along the lines of acceptance and reinventing oneself I am thrilled that we are getting a sequel because this is character driven, and I loved Tobias and Henry including the cat, Pearl listen LISTEN this book is the Book Of My Heart and i wish i could give it 6 stars because it deserves it in this house, we stan TWO 2 idiot morons tobias i m a very, very, very tired homosexual and i just wish to rest finch and henry oh wow so convenient how there s only one bed have i mentioned that my resume reads certified monster fucker lol i love tropes silver LEGENDS ONLY this book is EVERYTHING i love about myth and faery and the power of story mixed with okay b listen LISTEN this book is the Book Of My Heart and i wish i could give it 6 stars because it deserves it in this house, we stan TWO 2 idiot morons tobias i m a very, very, very tired homosexual and i just wish to rest finch and henry oh wow so convenient how there s only one bed have i mentioned that my resume reads certified monster fucker lol i love tropes silver LEGENDS ONLY this book is EVERYTHING i love about myth and faery and the power of story mixed with okay but what if these characters acted like real people tho aka what DWJ did so well, and what the world has been desperately missing for almost 10 years i do not make the comparison lightly, but emily tesh has a way with words and characters that i haven t seen since the death of DWJ as someone who s beenor less in a constant state of mourning since 2011, and has finally found someone or something that strikes the same complex and beautiful chords in my heart, i m overjoyed by this revelation and i can t fucking WAIT for what she does next by which i mean YES there are magical powers and bargains made without all the right information and murder trees and sentient forests and sleeping powers that shouldn t be awakened to be had here but also there s at least one panicked moment of oh my GOD his MUM has just shown up, what the fuck do i do and honestly reader, i died there s something so powerful in being able to put concepts like immortality and ineffability and destiny..and depression, lol, honestly immortality is horrifying in painfully, brutally human terms and to examine the effects they might have on Actual People and nobody has Done It For Me like this in years and years oh, also, it s So Romantic capitals very much intended what the FUCK, emily how dare all of which is to say do yourself a favor buy this book, and buy at least one copy for a friend there is literally 0 chance you ll regret it i feel obligated to note here at the end that technically i know emily and therefore there is the possibility that i am biased because it s Good Review Etiquette, but also y all this book is so fucking good that i truly do not believe there is any bias in operation here, it s just so good i would eschew most of my forever faves and take this book with me to a desert island that s how good it is *READ PDF ↙ Silver in the Wood ↵ There is a Wild Man who lives in the deep quiet of Greenhollow, and he listens to the wood Tobias, tethered to the forest, does not dwell on his past life, but he lives a perfectly unremarkable existence with his cottage, his cat, and his dryadsWhen Greenhollow Hall acquires a handsome, intensely curious new owner in Henry Silver, everything changes Old secrets better left buried are dug up, and Tobias is forced to reckon with his troubled past both the green magic of the woods, and the dark things that rest in its heart Silver in the Wood is a lyrical dream of a book In just over 100 pages Tesh transports you to a whole other world, where magic lives deep within the forest and other worldly beings walk.This was such a gorgeous little volume I fell in love with Tesh s descriptions of Greenhollow, and Tobias It s lush and vibrant It s a spell that is woven around you slowly, bring you into the deep dark green.The relationship between Tobias and Silver lovely to watch unfold It s a subtle thing and creeps up Silver in the Wood is a lyrical dream of a book In just over 100 pages Tesh transports you to a whole other world, where magic lives deep within the forest and other worldly beings walk.This was such a gorgeous little volume I fell in love with Tesh s descriptions of Greenhollow, and Tobias It s lush and vibrant It s a spell that is woven around you slowly, bring you into the deep dark green.The relationship between Tobias and Silver lovely to watch unfold It s a subtle thing and creeps up due to it being a short story but it was done well We also get some quality moments like Tobias having a moment when he realises Silver is in his bed and wearing his clothes.Part of me wishes it had been longer but I m not going to hold that against it since it s a short story So I am hoping this is not the last we ll see of Tobias, Silver and Greenhollow And Pearl and Silver s mother of course, who are some of the best supporting characters Get you a cat like Pearl I would read a thousandstories in this world.Silver in the Wood might not be an epic novel with battles over the fate of the entire world but it s consuming, haunting and so so beautiful If you are looking for a short read to dive into, to do away with the real world and experience a little magic then I definitely recommend Silver in the WoodHe knew it the same way the woodsman knew it, because he knew trees but he also knew it with the knowledge of the Wild Man of Greenhallow, who felt every slow green beat of the forest s heart I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are my own This review andcan be
