Darkly Wood II: The Woman Who Never Wore Shoes by Max Power is a sequel that can be read as a standalone. Darkly Wood looks innocent, situated on the slope above the isolated village of Cranby. Its name is related to the Darkly family who inhabited Darkly Manor on the wood’s distant edge, but it is haunted by ancient tales of people lost forever in its depths. As a young girl, Daisy May Coppertop escaped, but now her granddaughter, Holly, has teased her boyfriend, Charlie, into Darkly Wood. Daisy May knows the secrets and the dangers, but is her knowledge enough to save them from the horrors that await? All Holly wanted was find the old manor house. It is a ruin, and Charlie is not impressed, but what moved in the trees? What or who is lurking, watching and waiting?
Max Power claims to write paranormal novels, but be warned; he is a master of the art of horror. When you think the stories of the people lost in Darkly Wood can’t get any worse, they do. Imagine a man who carves gravestones being given an order for four, and he knows the names on the list… Even Daisy May, who watched her first and only love turn into a wild killer, doesn’t know the worst, but Holly’s disappearance debunks Daisy’s father’s story that her experience was only a coma-dream. Darkly Wood II: The Woman Who Never Wore Shoes is superb paranormal horror that hooks readers as tight as tangled, trapping branches: fast-paced, action-packed, and unique.
