Willa of Dark Hollow is a whimsical middle-grade novel that brings readers into the world of the Faeran. After being ostracized by her clain, Willa finds something dark and mysterious is slowly killing the people and creatures around it and with the loggers getting closer and closer to her home she has no choice but to figure out how to save the forest she loves. 

This story is both endearing and exciting - Willa is an admirable and strong character with an idealistic viewpoint of the world. She's determined to save her forest from the loggers but ends up having to team up with them in order to find what's killing the humans so she can reunited with her family. Despite the writing feeling a bit young for me personally, it fits the middle-grade age range and is widely accessible to many young readers. 

This was such a sweet companion novel to Willa of the Wood and allows readers to get immersed once again in Willa's forest while teaching the importance to balance with nature and loving the natural world around us!
