Summary of the Book:

Everyone has wanted their favorite book to be real, if only for a moment. Everyone has wished to meet their favorite characters, if only for a day. But be careful in that wish, for even a history laid in ink can be repaid in flesh and blood, and reality is far deadlier than fiction . . . especially on Addington Isle.Winterset Hollow follows a group of friends to the place that inspired their favorite book-a timeless tale about a tribe of animals preparing for their yearly end-of-summer festival. But after a series of shocking discoveries, they find that much of what the world believes to be fiction is actually fact, and that the truth behind their beloved story is darker and more dangerous than they ever imagined. It’s Barley Day . . . and you’re invited to the hunt.

Winterset Hollow is as thrilling as it is terrifying and as smart as it is surprising. A uniquely original story filled with properly unexpected twists and turns, Winterset Hollow delivers complex, indelible characters and pulse-pounding action as it storms toward an unforgettable climax that will leave you reeling. How do you celebrate Barley Day? You run, friend. You run.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to say this book creeped me out in the best of ways. I have favorite books and would love to live some of them for a day, but nothing like this book. It had my skin crawling with each new chapter. I don’t want to give anything away, but this does make me rethink all of those stories and tales I read as a child. There is a lot of emotions for the characters as they travel to the place that inspired their favorite book and discovers more behind it and the truth. That is a lot for them to process.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
