It started off well but then there was a lot of running around trying to figure out what was happening without much gain to the story. Using the F bomb and other expletives made it better suited for older teens but the writing and content were rather simplistic.

STAYCATION (sans kids): Did you put your kiddos in one of our spring break camps? Smart thinking! Prepare to get lost in the fairy-tale realm of this grisly and dreamlike fantasy debut.

The Hazel Wood was everything I wanted out of a dark fairy tale. It was a new story that relied on the structure and themes of classic fairytales to create a totally new legend. The characters themselves were much less important to the narrative than books I usually enjoy, buy I found I was satisfied by the story driven plot. If you are a fan of Holly Black, this is a must read.
