The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid – Dark & Unforgettable (Review)

My Thoughts: It’s official. I’m adding this book to my “books I will not shut up about” list.

About the Book: The Wolf and the Woodsman follows Evike, a magic-less pagan woman with a Yehuli father, making her an outcast in her village. When the Holy Order of the Woodsman comes to take a pagan girl as a sacrifice, her village betrays her and volunteers her to be taken. But, on the journey to the palace, she and the Woodsmen are attacked, leaving only her and the captain alive. But he isn’t who she originally thought. The two of them are forced to rely on each other to survive, but as they journey together, they realize they do have something in common: their desire to prevent the cruel prince from taking the throne.

Premise:

“Maybe that was the trick to it: to survive, to dare to stay alive, to forge your own hope when all hope had run out.”

Rule of Wolves is the sequel to King of Scars, and the most recent book in the Grishaverse. This book is nearly impossible to describe without spoiling a previous book in this universe, but it follows our main three characters as they deal with the aftermath of the King of Scars ending. Plus some twists. There’s war, monsters, magic, and romance.
