A wonderful faery tale. About an artist who takes herself off to a secluded retreat for inspiration and finds strange and beautiful faery folk mysteriously appearing in her sketches. She finds out that the world of faery is in danger of extinction and is calling out to her for help in their survival. A fantastic read by this brilliant author.

Not bad at all. Quite an unusual and very interesting storyline. Unlike his other works in a number of respects and I wish he would pursue this line of storytelling rather than seeming to concentrate on his Newford novels. Failing that, this tale could have been improved by being longer.

Eithinie is an artist, a somewhat reclusive and lonely women who lives in a log cabin near some woods.
When she suddenly starts seeing strange things in the woods and also in her paintings, she takes a holiday to try and make sense of what is happening to her and her life. Is the solitude and lack of a partner causing some kind of depression where she is imagining things?

On her return initially she sees no more odd people in the wood but they are there waiting, listening and pleading with her.

This is a superby written novel very different from the new genre of books about the Fey/Sidhe/Faerie Folk.
It is more earthy and in that respect maybe more believable.

Eventually Eithinie gives in to the Fey and the ending of the book is somewhat of a surprise. I also loved the way that the author has managed to draw the readers attention to how we are ruining our planet with pollution and maybe also killing off other worlds in the process.

Not up to Mr Lints usual high standards.....short and easy to read on holiday maybe, but not one to settle down with and enter those worlds he is master of in other tales.

This is a most excellent book; it had me gripped from the opening pages. If you are into conservation mixed with all things fae then this book is a fabulous choice. Full of mystery & magic 'The Wild Wood' will remain in my favourite books list for all time!
