What the Woods Keep is the stunning debut of Katya de Becerra, who combines mystery, science fiction, and dark fantasy in a twisty story that will keep you mesmerized right up to the final page.
On her eighteenth birthday, Hayden inherits her childhood home—on the condition that she uncover its dark secrets.
Hayden tried to put the past behind her, and it worked. She’s getting ready for college, living in a Brooklyn apartment, and hanging out with her best friend and roommate Del. But now it’s all catching up with her: her mother’s mysterious disappearance a decade before, her father’s outlandish theories about a lost supernatural race, and Hayden’s own dark dreams of strange symbols and rituals in the Colorado woods where she grew up.
As soon as Hayden arrives at her hometown, her friend Del in tow, it begins: Neighbors whisper secrets about Hayden’s mother; the boy next door is now all grown-up in a very distracting way; and Hayden feels the trees calling to her. And among them, deep in the woods, Hayden will discover something incredible—something that threatens reality.
I did enjoyed this book. It starts out pretty strong the story. Then towards the end, it was out of this world. The storyline I liked and the characters in it.
Hayden, trying to put the past behind her. I like how brave she is for returning home. After everything that happen with her mom, can she find the answers to her past?
Del, I liked her also in the book. She and Hayden have a cool bond as friends. Del will have her back no matter what happens. Will she still be there for her once Hayden discover the secrets to her past?
