First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid

The Wolf and the Woodsman, Ava Reid, Cape, Shadow, Fantasy, Mythology, Romance, Retellings
The trees have to be tied down by sunset. When the Woodsmen come, they always try to run.
The girls who are skilled forgers fashion little iron stakes to drive through the roots of the trees and into the earth, anchoring them in place. With no gifts for forging between the two of us, Boróka and I haul great length of rope, snaring any trees we pass in clumsy loops and awkward knots. When we finish, it looks the spider web of some giant creature, something the woods might cough up. The thought doesn’t even make me shiver. Nothing that might break through the tree line could be worse than the Woodsmen.

I used Random.org and it selected page 157.
I nod, soaked to the bone and shivering now. I’ve had enough for one day. I just want to get out of these clothes and sink into a hot, bubbly bath. I don’t even wait for Ryder to leave with the dogs – I start stripping down to my underwear right then, and there and race down the hall to my parents’ room.
I’m still in the big Jacuzzi tub when the power flickers -once, twice- and then goes out, leaving me in total darkness, chin deep in lukewarm water. I don’t know why, but it all hits me then -Nan’s surgery tomorrow, shooting that mocassin, this stupid never-ending storm. I start to cry, deep, gulping sobs. I know it seems childish, but I want my daddy. What if things get worse? What if the house starts to flood? Or the roof blows off? As much as I hate to admit it, I’m scared. Really scared.

Gibson, Fantasy, LGBT, Romance, Young Adult, Retelling, Plants, Roses, Girls, Running, Bird, Witches, Queens“She was even more beautiful like this, when she didn’t veil her emotions behind formality. Helvig would never have guessed that a girl who seemed carved from ice would melt over something as silly as a common deer.”
