Una emocionante serie ambientada en un mundo mágico increíble. Muévete sin hacer ruido. Desaparece sin dejar rastro. Willa, una joven espíritu nocturno de las Grandes Montañas Humeantes, es la mejor ladrona de su clan, por su habilidad para colarse en las casas de las criaturas diurnas y llevarse objetos que nunca echarán en falta. Pero un día, por culpa de su curiosidad, Willa cae herida y atrapada en el mundo del día. Entonces descubrirá la verdad: no todas las criaturas diurnas son iguales. La magia que ha protegido a su clan está en peligro y solo ella, con su inagotable coraje, tiene el poder de salvarlo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION From Robert Beatty, author of the award-winning Serafina books, comes this thrilling new #1 New York Times bestselling series. Set in 1900 in the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s the story of an orphaned girl–gentle of heart, but brimming with the ancient forest powers of her people–who must struggle to survive in a changing world. Filled with the history, mystery, and magic of the Great Smoky Mountains, Kirkus Reviews describes WILLA OF THE WOOD as “A moving, atmospheric journey of hope.” Move without a sound. Steal without a trace. To Willa, a young night-spirit, humans are the murderers of trees. She’s been taught to despise them and steal from them. She’s her clan’s best thief, creeping into the log cabins of the day-folk under cover of darkness and taking what they won’t miss. It’s dangerous work, but Willa will do anything to win the approval of the padaran, the charismatic leader of the Faeran people. When Willa’s curiosity leaves her hurt and stranded in the day-folk world, she calls upon the old powers of her beloved grandmother, and the unbreakable bonds of her forest allies, to survive. Only then does she begin to discover the shocking truth: that not all of her human enemies are the same, and that the foundations of her own Faeran society are crumbling. What do you do when you realize that the society you were born and raised in is rife with evil? Do you raise your voice? Do you stand up against it? As forces of unfathomable destruction attack her forest home, Willa must decide who she truly is–facing deadly force with warm compassion, sinister corruption with trusted alliance, and finding a home for her longing heart.
