Queer Rep Summary: Gay/Achillean Main Character(s).

SILVER IN THE WOOD is a fae-adjacent romance where a Wild Man finds himself falling in love with a curious newcomer to the wood, digging up secrets long buried.

The characters are nuanced and deep, impressively so for such a short book. I liked everything: the world building; the romance; the characters; the plot. The slow-burn pace makes it feel like it builds forever, while the low page count makes it take no time at all. I'll definitely read the sequel.

CW for blood, kidnapping, gun violence, violence, major character death, death.
