The Luminaries by Susan Dennard


Hemlock Falls isn’t like other towns. You won’t find it on a map, your phone won’t work here, and the forest outside town might just kill you.

Winnie Wednesday wants nothing more than to join the Luminaries, the ancient order that protects Winnie’s town—and the rest of humanity—from the monsters and nightmares that rise in the forest of Hemlock Falls every night.

Ever since her father was exposed as a witch and a traitor, Winnie and her family have been shunned. But on her sixteenth birthday, she can take the deadly Luminary hunter trials and prove herself true and loyal—and restore her family’s good name. Or die trying.

But in order to survive, Winnie enlists the help of the one person who can help her train: Jay Friday, resident bad boy and Winnie’s ex-best friend. While Jay might be the most promising new hunter in Hemlock Falls, he also seems to know more about the nightmares of the forest than he should. Together, he and Winnie will discover a danger lurking in the forest no one in Hemlock Falls is prepared for.

Not all monsters can be slain, and not all nightmares are confined to the dark.

My Review:

Are you to go to hunting school?

In Hemlock you spilt into different clans. Also get to train to be a hunter of nightmares. Winnie family is an outcast because of her father. Now she going to prove herself to the clans by becoming an hunter. Things are not what they seem with the nightmares and she has an unlikely training partner, Jay. Will Winnie be able to make it in the end?

The Luminaries was such a good read. So many characters to fall in love with. Also the cover is pretty bad ass. I did fallen in love with the storyline so much. Kinda had an supernatural feeling to it. This is very detailed world building and very easy to follow along. I was lucky enough to have met Susan Dennard at an event. You guys will not be disappointed in this book. Go check it out.

Happy Reading!!!!
