After her father goes missing in the woods that they protect, Winter tries to seek the truth in what happened, why the wood is changing, and what it all has to do with the arrival of a mysterious stranger in this thrilling YA debut.
When Winter’s dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can't help but think there's more to her dad's disappearance than she's being told.
She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter’s dad.
The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister—torturing travelers lost in it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.
Bobulski’s eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.
I really enjoyed this book. I thought the atmosphere of this book was prefect for this time of year. It was nice balance between time travel novel and just supernatural book overall. I thought the world building for the novel was done in easy to understand way. I really did enjoy all the characters but I loved Henry a lot. The book had some predictable twists but some other were so well done. I thought the end of the book was rushed and would have loved more explanation at the end or even an epilogue. It was prefect fall read and def put him the fall mood.
