Wouldn’t it be magical to live at the edge of a wood inhabited by fairies; within walking distance of a troll bridge? Well. It certainly would be magical, but it wouldn’t actually be at all nice.
When two young children disappear, the elder members of a family are full of bluster, anger and violence. It’s left to their step-sister, a mute and frequently-overlooked young woman, do do what it will actually take to save them. And it will take sacrifice.
This is no sparkly fairytale, but a tough and quietly fierce one. Excellent work.
