Finished December 2
Darkwood by M.E. Breen

This children's novel is set in another land, where there is magic. In Howland, darkness comes suddenly and completely. There is no moon, no stars, and people are afraid of what is out in the dark, particularly of what is in the forest. Annie Trewitt lives with her aunt and uncle, on a farm near the woods. She has been taught to fear the the creatures of the dark, the kinderstalk. Children have been disappearing from their community, like Annie's sister Page. No trace is found of them. When Annie hears her aunt and uncle making terrible plans for her, she knows she must venture into the forest.
Annie survives, and begins to learn that all is not what it seems, and that she has abilities she never dreamed of. As Annie journeys farther in the kingdom, she finds her own destiny as well as those she thought were lost forever.
A tale of growing up, of courage, of taking a step into the unknown. A story of learning that things aren't always what they seem, and of believing in oneself.
