A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.

Customer Reviews of The Treachery Of Beautiful Things

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Story Really liked the fairytale feel, and I liked the characters. Just sort of floaty-along, feel good kinda fairy book. Although, I think every single character was compared to a cat at one point. Most more than once. It's like cats are her only frame of reference. So many cat similes.
