From the Publisher
Ever since Prue McKeel returned home from the Impassable
Wilderness after rescuing her brother from the malevolent Dowager
Governess, life has been pretty dull. School holds no interest for
her, and her new science teacher keeps getting on her case about
her dismal test scores and daydreaming in class. Her mind is
constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of
Wildwood, where her friend Curtis still remains as a
But all is not well in that world. A hard winter has come and
discord reigns in the wake of the so-called Bicycle Coup. Dark
assassins with mysterious motives conspire to settle the scores of
an unknown client. A titan of industry employs inmates from his
orphanage to work in his machine shop, all the while obsessing over
the exploitation of the Impassable Wilderness. Under a growing
threat, Prue is drawn back into Wildwood, where she and Curtis will
face their greatest challenge yet: to save themselves and the lives
of their friends, and to bring unity to a divided country. But in
order to do that, they must go under Wildwood.
In Under Wildwood, Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis reveal
new dimensions of the epic fantasy-adventure series begun with the
critically acclaimed, bestselling Wildwood.
