Walk the Wild With Me
Walk the Wild With Me | Rachel Atwood
7 posts | 2 read | 7 to read
Orphaned when still a toddler, Nicholas Withybeck knows no other home than Locksley Abbey outside Nottingham, England. He works in the Scriptorium embellishing illuminated manuscripts with hidden faces of the Wild Folk and whimsical creatures that he sees every time he ventures into the woods and fields. His curiosity leads him into forbidden nooks and crannies inside, and outside the abbey. He becomes adept at hiding to stay out of trouble. On one of these forays he slips into the crypt beneath the abbey. There he finds an altar older than the abbeys foundations, ancient when the Romans occupied England. Behind the bricks around the altar, he finds a palm-sized silver cup. The cup is embellished with the three figures of Elena, the Celtic goddess of crossroads, sorcery, and cemeteries. He carries the cup with him always. The goddess whispers wisdom in the back of his mind. With Elena in his pocket, Nick can see that the masked dancers on the May Day celebration in the local village are the actual creatures of the wood, The Green Man, Robin Goodfellow, Herne the Huntsman, dryads, trolls, and water sprites, the imaginary faces hes seen and drawn into the Illuminations. Over the course of several adventures where Elena guides Nick and keeps him safe, he learns that Little Johns (the Green Man) love has been kidnapped by Queen Mab of the Faeries. The door to the Faery mound will only open when the moons of the two realms align. The time is fast approaching. Nick must release Elena so that she can use sorcery to unlock that door and Nicks band of friends can try to rescue the girl. Will he have the courage to release her as his predecessor did not?

RamsFan1963 I almost bought The Black Coast at BAM! today. It sounded interesting, but not enough to sway the huge TBR shelves ahead of it. 1y

It's been a loooooong, stressful week, so I treated myself to a walk in the park and a small book haul after work today! I'm particularly interested on the tagged book! It has a low goodreads rating, but I'm kind of already half in love with it after reading the blurb! 😍💕📚 #bookhaul

In the Robin Hood genre but more about Little John. With faeries. How could I not??? Was the author in my brain? And the more I read, the more I felt she was. About 30 years ago I started a RH-related novel and it would have ended up quite similar to this one. (Sorry for the cover pic but sometimes the covers come out as more than one page one the work reader app.)

In this new historical fantasy, a young man must use the power granted by a goddess to infiltrate the realm of faerie and save the kidnap victim before the door sealed once again.

This book was a mysterious twist on Robinhood that I'd never seen before. But I felt as if it was missing something I'm just not sure what! Thank you to Berkley Publishing, Da Books, and PenguinRandom House for this book in exchange for an honest review!
