Book Trailer Thursday: The Darkest Part of the Forest

Without the lyrics, the song in this trailer for Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest (Little, Brown) could almost be a lullaby. With the lyrics, though, it’s a few shades chillier than “Rock-a-bye Baby.” Sarah Hunter says, “Black’s stark, eerie tone; propulsive pacing; and fulsome world building will certainly delight her legion of fans.” I think there’s a whole world contained in this 30-second trailer. What say you?

If you missed it, be sure to watch the archive of last week’s live-interview Booklist webinar “Myth Masters: A Conversation with Holly Black, Kate Elliott, and Barry Lyga,” and hear fairy stories and fascinating facts from the three authors.
