"Highly literary, occasionally surreal, and grounded by Alice's clipped, matter-of-fact voice, it's a dark story that readers will have trouble leaving behind. HIGH-DEMAND: the buzz for this debut is deafening..." Booklist, Starred ReviewFrom rising star Melissa Albert comes a fantastical story of mythic proportions.Welcome to The Hazel Wood--a fiercely stunning contemporary fantasy audiobook. Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice's life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice's grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away--by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: "Stay away from the Hazel Wood."Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother's cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began--and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.Praise for The Hazel Wood:"The Hazel Wood will be your next obsession."--Stephanie Garber, author of Caraval"Thoroughly, creepily captivating."--Kristin Cashore, author of Graceling"This is one of the best books I've read in years."--Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places"A dream of a book I cannot recommend highly enough."--Seanan McGuire, author of Every Heart a Doorway.… (mais)

Alice has grown up knowing only a life on the run, although she’s not sure exactly what her and her mom have been running from. When they receive a letter informing them of her grandmother – a famous recluse and author of a now-impossible-to-find collection of fairy tales – dies, Alice thinks that maybe they can finally stop living nomadic lives and take up residence in her grandmother’s estate, Hazel Wood. But no, her mom still refuses to go near the place and forbids Alice to go looking for it. When strange people start following Alice and then when her mother is kidnapped, she has no choice, she thinks, but to try to track down the Hazel Wood and solve the mysteries surrounding it. She soon finds, though, that those who have tried before her to crack those secrets haven’t fared so well…

An interesting story nicely told, with some good twists to old fairy tale tropes. ( )

Score: Five points out of ten. Find this review on The StoryGraph.

One year ago, I mistakenly read The Hazel Wood's sequel, The Night Country, which I initially enjoyed but later repulsed. One year later, it was time to read The Hazel Wood, which initially looked promising until I checked the ratings and reviews, thus lowering my expectations. However, nothing could prepare me for how disappointing it was. Did I mention The Hazel Wood was also on the BookTok shelf?

It starts with the first character I see, Alice Proserpine, or Alice for short, forced to move to The Hazel Wood estate after her grandmother dies. I would classify this novel as a contemporary urban YA fantasy, which appeals to me since I like fantasy stories, but unfortunately, it didn't work out. The Hazel Wood's most prominent flaws lie in its pacing, worldbuilding and characters. For starters, the pacing is too monotonous and not engaging enough to keep me reading. It makes The Hazel Wood less like under 400 pages and more like 500 pages. All the characters are two-dimensional, and Alice is the most infuriating because how she talks to people comes off as irritating at best and frustrating at worst. The worldbuilding is nonexistent. There's no reason why everything is the way they are. I'm done with this author. ( )

I gave this book 3.5 stars for review*
I did not love this book but I had a hard time putting it down. I really enjoyed some parts of this book but was not engaged in the whole thing. I loved the twisty/ dark setting of the various fairytales we learned about. I think I might like this book better on re-read because I think I may be less lost. I will be curious to see if we get more books. I loved the start and the end of this story the most. The middle part dragged a tad. I thought the main character was hard to connect with by I loved Finch alot! I am curious to see what happens next in this series! ( )
