1, Wildwood Chronicles
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
For fans of The Chronicles of Narnia comes the first book in the Wildwood Chronicles, the New York Times bestselling fantasy adventure series by Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of The Mysterious Benedict Society.
In Wildwood, Prue and her friend Curtis uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.
Wildwood captivates readers with the wonder and thrill of a secret world within the landscape of a modern city. It feels at once firmly steeped in the classics of children's literature and completely fresh at the same time. The story is told from multiple points of view, and the book features more than eighty illustrations, including six in full-color.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. As a huge fan of the Deceberists and a huge fan of the stories conveyed in their songs, I was expecting a lot from this book, and it did NOT disappoint! I absolutely loved it!
Really great read!
Read this to my 8 year old. He really liked the avians and the coyote soldiers! Very imaginative and a full throttle adventure. We are a little disappointed by one thing. Not all the questions are answered. How did Curtis become a half breed? More clarification on the evil queen's son and how the mystic knows her would have been nice. Hence the 4 stars. Also, it gets a little slow in a few spots, but it's easy to get past them. All in all a great read!
Got this book as a crate and barrel download. I usually never read virtual books, but I couldn't put my phone down for this one! I will definitely be picking up physical copies of this series. A great read for all ages, and a refreshing break from all of the tired vampire themed series.
