Overview

A fantasy series set in a world where magic is forbidden—but exists in the dark woods called the
Thickety—for fans of Neil Gaiman and Septimus Heap

When Kara Westfall was six years old, her mother was convicted of the worst of all crimes: witchcraft. Years later, Kara and her little brother, Taff, are still shunned by the people of their village, who believe that nothing is more evil than magic … except, perhaps, the mysterious forest that covers nearly the entire island. It has many names, this place.
Sometimes it is called the Dark Wood, or Sordyr’s Realm. But mostly it’s called the Thickety.

The villagers live in fear of the Thickety and the terrible creatures that live there. But when an unusual bird lures Kara into the forbidden forest, she discovers a strange book with unspeakable powers—a book that might have belonged to her mother. And that is just the beginning of the story.

Editorial Reviews

Angie Sage
“The Thickety may give you nightmares, but it is a gripping story with a great heroine.”
The Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books
“A startling plot twist at the end will have readers urgently waiting for a sequel, and it may even lead them right back into the book to see if they missed earlier clues.”
Lisa McMann
“The Thickety is a sinister, magical debut with a marvelous and shocking heroine. J.A. White’s elegant writing and masterful plot kept me turning pages late into the night.”
