Book Review | Where the Woods End by Charlotte Salter

Where the Woods End is a middle grade horror by Charlotte Salter.

Where the Woods End by Charlotte Salter

In a forest filled with treacherous beasts, the thing to be most afraid of is closer than you think in this middle grade horror fantasy.

Kestrel, a young huntress, lives in a seemingly endless forest crawling with dangerous beasts. But the most dangerous beasts of all are the Grabbers—beings that are born when you are and stalk you throughout your life, waiting for the perfect moment to snatch and eat you. No one has ever defeated their Grabber once attacked, and those that die from accidents or other creatures are considered "lucky." Kestrel has been tasked by her mother, a powerful and controlling spell-caster, to hunt down the Grabbers in an effort to protect their village in the forest. Accompanied by Pippit, a hilariously bloodthirsty weasel, she hones her skills as she searches for a way out of the forest--and away from the judgmental villagers who despise her. But her own Grabber is creeping ever closer, and nothing in this forest is what it seems... including her mother's true motivations.

I picked up Where the Woods End after my friend Steve Stred sent me a picture and asked if I'd read it yet. We were pretty excited by the sound of it and decided to do a buddy read.

First of all, this book encompasses a lot of what I love about MG. It was so imaginative, and I was captivated by it from the start. Second of all, Where the Woods End is the creepiest middle grade horror I've ever read! For some kids it may be a little too creepy. For me, it was awesome.

I spent the majority of the book assuming it was an allegory that I wouldn't understand, but it all came together in the end. I loved it!

This was a perfect buddy read, too. Steve and I were constantly guessing and demanding answers. It was a lot of fun. Be sure to check out Steve's review, too.

  1. What a cool idea, your own monster that stalks you your whole life. Cool and creepy!

  2. I don't know if I've read a middle grade horror but this one sounds fantastic!

  3. However, if you're highly organized and able to manage your time effectively, you can most certainly help a business executive out that's trying to manage his or her own time while making some money online in the meanwhile. Brilliant Noise is a marketing and communications partner that transforms businesses through data-led strategy, planning and creative. After many successful years as an on-air talent, Production Director, Program Director and Account Executive in the Radio and Television business, I started an advertising agency to better serve clients with a full range of multimedia services including media planning, media buying, copywriting, audio-video production and special event marketing. If you spend some time on creating a useful plugin, you can attract a lot of people's attention to sell.

    One of the most in-demand services that you can offer to fit the active-income bill online, is software development. Along the same lines of being a business coach, if you have the ability to bring people together and create a mastermind group, you can get paid for it. You can start promoting affiliate links in Facebook groups, online forums, and write product reviews on LinkedIn, Quora & Medium. Apart from those mentioned above, some other tips should be taken into account if you want to make money by buying and selling domain names. One of the key elements to building a cohesive digital media buying strategy is to understand the different tactics within Earned, Owned and Paid Media. Most people are good at getting traffic and clueless on how to monetize it. As with most things in life with websites you require a ton of patience to be successful.

    DoubleClick - Offers a full suite of products for publishers that enable you to forecast, sell inventory, serve ads and analyze campaigns online and through other digital channels. The overall strategy for choosing site placement includes a site's audience, how you want to target your demographic, ad space opportunities, and the number of site visitors. Blogs are sitting online just waiting for your customers to find them at all times. I often wonder if some highly successful online entrepreneurs are addicted to making money and building websites. If you have acquired knowledge about social media platforms you can start publishing some content over there and if your channel or profile is credible you can monetize it, where the respective platforms will be paying you by promoting the products through their network platform.

  4. Sounds like a great read and I think there is always room for MG horror. Awesome cover too!

  5. MG horror - it sounds almost like a contradiction in terms doesn't it? after reading your review I would definitely read this. I shall go and look it up.
    Lynn :D

  6. Oooh! I'm adding this to my TBR right away!
