Description

From Astounding Award Finalist Emily Tesh

Drowned Country
is the the stunning sequel to Silver in the Wood, Emily Tesh's lush, folkloric debut. This second volume of the Greenhollow duology once again invites readers to lose themselves in the story of Henry and Tobias, and the magic of a myth they've always known.

Even the Wild Man of Greenhollow can't ignore a summons from his mother, when that mother is the indomitable Adela Silver, practical folklorist. Henry Silver does not relish what he'll find in the grimy seaside town of Rothport, where once the ancient wood extended before it was drowned beneath the sea--a missing girl, a monster on the loose, or, worst of all, Tobias Finch, who loves him.

About the Author

EMILY TESH grew up in London and studied Classics at Trinity College, Cambridge, followed by a Master's degree in Humanities at the University of Chicago. She now lives in Hertfordshire, where she passes her time teaching Latin and Ancient Greek to schoolchildren who have done nothing to deserve it. She has a husband and a cat. Neither of them knows any Latin yet, but it is not for lack of trying. Tesh is the author of The Greenhollow Duology, which begins with Silver in the Wood and concludes with Drowned Country.

Reviews

Praise for Silver in the Wood

A wildly evocative and enchanting story of old forests, forgotten gods, and new love. Just magnificent.--Jenn Lyons

Alive with old magic, Silver in the Wood made my hair stand on end even as it beckoned me to go deeper, and in the end I couldn't resist.--C. L. Polk

Exquisitely crafted. . . . This fresh, evocative short novel heralds a welcome new voice in fantasy.--Publishers Weekly

A gorgeous novella that feels somewhere between fairy tale and myth, only it's the kind of myth that is probably true.--Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Find a quiet place in a nearby wood, listen to the trees whisper, and thank the old gods and new for this beautiful little book, of which I intend to get lost in again and again.--Book Riot

It is easy to praise flash and sparkle, but the beauty of the simple and lighter-than-air is more difficult to capture. Silver in the Wood's sparkle is that of clear water; its flash the snap of a crackling fire, and Tesh's prose reads like returning to a dream long-forgotten or a song half-remembered. It is, needless to say, excellent.--Alexandra Rowland

"Tesh lured me into her rich fairytale narrative with the warmth and strangeness, then hooked me on her intricate characters. Silver in the Wood is a novella of quiet yearning and old secrets, gentle woodsmen and fierce dryads and mothers you really shouldn't mess with."--Kerstin Hall
