Under Wildwood by Colin Meloy, Carson Ellis (Illustrator), 559 pages, read by Angie, on 02/24/2013

Under Wildwood picks up after the events of Wildwood. Prue is home with her family, Curtis is training to be a Bandit, and all seems fine. But all is not fine. The South Wood is still in turmoil and assassins have been sent after the major players of Wildwood. Prue returns to Wildwood on the run from the Kitsune assassins. She and Curtis must save themselves and figure out how to save Wildwood at the same time. Meanwhile, Curtis’s parents are off on a wild goose chase to find him in Istanbul. They leave his sisters in a home for wayward children (and machine parts) where they are forced to work for a strange man obsessed with the Impassable Wilderness.

This book is definitely the set up for book 3. Everything is leading up to the big confrontation in the next book. This book is all about getting the main characters where they need to be and with the knowledge they need. We meet lots of new and interesting people and we learn a lot about the history of Wildwood. This is a fun series and I can’t wait for the next book.
