Juniper Berry's parents are the most beloved actor and actress in the world—but Juniper can't help but feel they haven't been quite right lately. And she and her friend Giles are determined to find out why.
On a cold and rainy night, Juniper follows her parents as they sneak out of the house and enter the woods. What she discovers is an underworld filled with contradictions: one that is terrifying and enticing, lorded over by a creature both sinister and seductive, who can sell you all the world's secrets bound in a balloon. For the first time, Juniper and Giles have a choice to make. And it will be up to them to confront their own fears in order to save the ones who couldn't.
"A tale of terror and temptation"... Everything about this appeals to me. And for whatever reason, I love crows/various black birds on covers. I think maybe I'm just in the mood for something like it. AND Kozlowsky is a 2011 debut author! Definitely on the to-read list!
What say you, kittens? Anyone else in the mood for some debut terror and temptation?
