Series Info/Source: This is the first book in the Greenhollow Duology. I bought this book for my Kindle.

Story (5/5): I loved this story. It is just such a calm and beautiful story about a Green Man and his forest. Things do get kind of shaken up when he has to face the fearsome Summer King. There is a lot of wonderful mythology and description and some light humor. It was a very pleasant and beautiful read that I enjoyed a lot.

Characters (5/5): The characters in here are amazing and contrast each other wonderfully. I loved Tobias’s steadfastness, Henry’s enthusiasm, and Henry’s mother’s determination. All the characters are so engaging, complex, and lovable.

Setting (5/5): The majority of the story is set in Greenhollow town and the forest there. It was a beautiful setting and the fantastic description really made the setting come alive. I felt like I could really see and smell and be part of the forest there and loved every second of it.

Writing Style (5/5): The writing here flows beautifully and is calm, quirky, and engaging. The story sucked me right in but also had a sort of calming quality to it while also keeping me entertaining and smiling.

My Summary (5/5): Overall this was such a pleasant surprise and I really loved it. I enjoyed pretty much everything about this story and immediately went out and bought the second book in the duology. If you enjoy folklore/mythology, forests, and magic I would definitely recommend this book. It was just so well done. ( )

Free book from TOR. Silver in the Wood is a debut fantasy by Emily Tesh. Emily Tesh is an English author and a teacher of Latin and ancient Greek to school children. The story incorporates folklore. The Dryads, the Green Man, etc. I found the story engaging and an easy read. I for one, did not know much about the Green Man. Research tells me that the Green Man (lady) represent spring, new birth. The story features the winter solstice, the summer solstice and the equinox. The book is labeled queer and there is a bit of kissing but no more than that. It could have done without it, it did not add to the story and therefore maty be gratuitous. ( )

A thoroughly enjoyable take on the Green Man legend. ( )

This fantasy is based on the British pagan character The Green Man, who lives among the trees. The Green Man is one of my favorite characters in fiction, and there are many variations of the character including one written by Kingsley Amis that was made into a film starring the late Albert Finney. This particular man has lived in the woods with the dryads and assorted magical creatures for 400 years before he takes a wrong step. No spoilers here, so you will have to read the book. ( )

So I'd been seeing this on my social media feeds and it sounded like not exactly my thing, but the cover was pretty and it's a tiny little novella, so of course when it showed up on the NEW shelves at the library I had to pick it up.

I enjoyed it more than I expected. Really, I've read frightfully little fantasy, so other than knowing that there is a "Green Man" character in folklore, I know not much more beyond that. So if there are tropes and references in this little book I probably missed most of them. There were a few relationships I wish had been more fleshed out here (maybe in the second book?), but really on the whole I think it works as the slight little tale that it is. The m/m relationships sometimes felt a little fan-ficcy (m/m written by straight girls), but this is a different society and one of them isn't exactly human, so what do I know.

Besides. I like fanfic.

I'd like to read more stories like this. ( )
