Friends, it’s happened again. I recently read another book that I loved so much I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe it. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from The Subtweet by Vivek Shraya, but it exceeded all of my expectations. It was incredibly smart, well-written, and made me think a lot, even days after finishing it.
“He knew it the same way the woodsman knew it, because he knew trees: but he also knew it with the knowledge of the Wild Man of Greenhollow, who felt every slow green beat of the forest’s heart.”
Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh is the perfect woodland dream, filled with fae, old magic, forest folk, and love and sacrifice. It’s another wonderful novella from Tor Dot Com, and if you’re in the mood for a quick yet fully-immersive fantasy, get your hands on this book.
