Silver in the Wood

by Emily Tesh
Release date: June 18, 2019
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

A novella.

"A true story of the woods, of the fae, and of the heart. Deep and green and wonderful.” ― Naomi Novik

There is a Wild Man who lives in the deep quiet of Greenhollow, and he listens to the wood. Tobias, tethered to the forest, does not dwell on his past life, but he lives a perfectly unremarkable existence with his cottage, his cat, and his dryads.

When Greenhollow Hall acquires a handsome, intensely curious new owner in Henry Silver, everything changes. Old secrets better left buried are dug up, and Tobias is forced to reckon with his troubled past ― both the green magic of the woods, and the dark things that rest in its heart.

Praise for Silver in the Wood

"Alive with old magic, Silver in the Wood made my hair stand on end even as it beckoned me to go deeper, and in the end I couldn't resist." ― C. L. Polk

"A wildly evocative and enchanting story of old forests, forgotten gods, and new love. Just magnificent." ― Jenn Lyons

"It is easy to praise flash and sparkle, but the beauty of the simple and lighter-than-air is more difficult to capture. Silver in the Wood's sparkle is that of clear water; its flash the snap of a crackling fire, and Tesh's prose reads like returning to a dream long-forgotten or a song half-remembered. It is, needless to say, excellent." ― Alexandra Rowland

“Tesh lured me into her rich fairytale narrative with the warmth and strangeness, then hooked me on her intricate characters. Silver in the Wood is a novella of quiet yearning and old secrets, gentle woodsmen and fierce dryads and mothers you really shouldn’t mess with.” ― Kerstin Hall
