Happy Release Day!
A community that has lived in Amity Falls for generations with legends of monsters in the forest. Recently, some strange occurrences are happening leading some to believe that these monsters are back.
It was interesting to be in the middle of a small community living a simple life in the mountains far from any city or other resources. They depended on eachother but as supplies started to dwindle and they started to hold grudges and do things behind each other’s backs, really odd things started to happen.
Read the synopsis in comments – I am having a hard time explaining too much since there were a lot of seemingly small things that converged at the end resolving the huge mystery. OMG the ending though was so crazy!
This is in line with a Rumplestiltskin retelling. This book got so dark but was in line with her other book and I really enjoyed it! I felt like I had no idea what the mystery was or who was doing what the whole time until things started to reveal.
Can I just say Sam is a real douchehole?

Thank you @delacortepress and @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary.
Synopsis:Ellerie Downing lives in the quiet town of Amity Falls in the Blackspire Mountain range–five narrow peaks stretching into the sky like a grasping hand, bordered by a nearly impenetrable forest from which the early townsfolk fought off the devils in the woods. To this day, visitors are few and rare. But when a supply party goes missing, some worry that the monsters that once stalked the region have returned.
As fall turns to winter, more strange activities plague the town. They point to a tribe of devilish and mystical creatures who promise to fulfill the residents’ deepest desires, however grand and impossible, for just a small favor. But their true intentions are much more sinister, and Ellerie finds herself in a race against time before all of Amity Falls, her family, and the boy she loves go up in flames.
