From Astounding Award Winner and Crawford Award Finalist Emily TeshA Buzzfeed Summer 2020 Must-Read
A Book Riot Must-Read Fantasy of 2020 "The tender, frustrated romance between the dramatic Henry and taciturn Tobias shines. Tesh's second outing is elegant, evocative, and irresistible."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Complex, dreamy. . . . A beautiful tale full of quiet courage, magic rooted in the soil or the curling branches of trees, and a strong, determined queer love."--Booklist, starred review "If you're looking for a strong ensemble of characters, high stakes, and a delicious tension-filled lovers quarrel, it doesn't get any better than this."--Book Riot "Drowned Country really is a beautiful book, the sort that makes you happy to live in a world where you can read it. It abounds in humour, adventure, tenderness, magic, and a sort of poetry. The story is peopled with characters I care about, and above all, it is haunted by a Wood that I both dream of and fear to be lost in."--Smart Bitches, Trashy Books "The love story between Henry and Tobias is a charming addition to the plot as they rekindle their former relationship during their journey. . . . Following Silver in the Wood, this latest installment is just as magical."--Library Journal "Drowned Country is even more of a triumph than its stellar predecessor. . . . It's great to read queer romances, and it's even better to read complex queer romances."--Geekly, Inc.
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
