Winterset Hollow

Magic Realism Fantasy

326 Pages

September 1, 2021

Paperback ~ Kindle

Everyone has wanted their favorite book to be real, if only for a moment. Everyone has wished to meet their favorite characters, if only for a day. But be careful in that wish, for even a history laid in ink can be repaid in flesh and blood, and reality is far deadlier than fiction . . . especially on Addington Isle.

Winterset Hollow follows a group of friends to the place that inspired their favorite book—a timeless tale about a tribe of animals preparing for their yearly end-of-summer festival. But after a series of shocking discoveries, they find that much of what the world believes to be fiction is actually fact, and that the truth behind their beloved story is darker and more dangerous than they ever imagined. It’s Barley Day . . . and you’re invited to the hunt.

Winterset Hollow is as thrilling as it is terrifying and as smart as it is surprising. A uniquely original story filled with properly unexpected twists and turns, Winterset Hollow delivers complex, indelible characters and pulse- pounding action as it storms toward an unforgettable climax that will leave you reeling.

How do you celebrate Barley Day? You run, friend. You run.

My Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

What a ride!! Any reader has wanted their books or characters from a book to be real at one point or another. What happens when you find out your favorite book is true – but it’s way darker and more dangerous than ever??

This book started off a bit slow for me, but in retrospect it laid the story out beautifully. We follow three friends, Eamon, Caroline & Mark. They decide to travel to the island – the setting of Eamon & Caroline’s favorite book “Winterset Hollow” was written. From The moment they get off the ferry at they island the story turns explosive – edge of your seat, can’t put down, just one more chapter until 5am explosive! I really enjoyed Jonathan’s writing style – it was flawless. The characters are relatable and well fleshed out. The world building is phenomenal. Imagine the intricacies of writing a book inside of a book?? Definitely a book that dark fantasy readers will truly enjoy.
