The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid
Release Date: June 8, 2021
Publisher: Del Rey
Genre: Fantasy
Pages: 448

In the vein of Naomi Novik’s New York Times bestseller Spinning Silver and Katherine Arden’s national bestseller The Bear and the Nightingale, this unforgettable debut— inspired by Hungarian history and Jewish mythology—follows a young pagan woman with hidden powers and a one-eyed captain of the Woodsmen as they form an unlikely alliance to thwart a tyrant.

In her forest-veiled pagan village, Évike is the only woman without power, making her an outcast clearly abandoned by the gods. The villagers blame her corrupted bloodline—her father was a Yehuli man, one of the much-loathed servants of the fanatical king. When soldiers arrive from the Holy Order of Woodsmen to claim a pagan girl for the king’s blood sacrifice, Évike is betrayed by her fellow villagers and surrendered…

I’ve technically already read The Wolf and the Woodsman, but it’s so good, I couldn’t leave it off the list! If you want to read my full review, you can check it out here. And I’m currently reading Curse of the Spector Queen and loving it. I’m definitely going to order myself a copy or add it to my wishlist for later!
