Big Beasts, by Patrick Scott
In the biggest city in the kingdom…
Magic pulses at a low ebb so as not to even be noted by anyone. It provides convenient sources of light, smooth roads, and keeps more dangerous things at bay. Even on the outskirts where craftspeople and farmers make their home, nothing overly wild resides.
Then, Kylie finds herself spirited away from the relative security of her home and life only to be plunged into a wild world of darkness, betrayal, and magical creatures. She struggles against a destiny being thrust upon her. She must find her way, which includes discovering who she can trust in the wild dark wood, a wild dark wood filled with Big Beasts.
