The Earth tree started to shake. I looked up just in time to see a shadow cast over me and a young man falling from the lowest branch, knocking me down, thrusting my head into the grass. William had come to get me.
Evelyn was trapped and controlled by William in Purlieu and now finds it impossible to trust anyone.
While attempting to face her fears, Evelyn is driven into an ominous underground citadel beyond the Hidden Grove where ancient Norse is the local tongue. There her father is taken captive and she is forced to rely on a strange boy, despite her better judgement.
Can she free her father before they're both executed? Will she learn to trust again?
With twists and turns down the deep cavernous tunnels, Verja is a gripping story about bringing what is in the shadows to the light.
Verja is the second book of the Hidden Grove series, a three-part young adult fantasy thriller.
