Publisher's Summary

A magical, ethereal fantasy from IndieBound best-selling author Emily Lloyd-Jones.

Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict, and 18-year-old Mererid—“Mer”—is well-acquainted with both. She is the last living water diviner and has spent years running from the prince who bound her into his service. Under the prince’s orders, she located the wells of his enemies, and he poisoned them without her knowledge, causing hundreds of deaths. After discovering what he had done, Mer went to great lengths to disappear from his reach. Then Mer’s old handler returns with a proposition: Use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.

The best way to do that is to destroy the magical well that keeps the prince’s lands safe. With a motley crew of allies, including a fae-cursed young man, the lady of thieves, and a corgi that may or may not be a spy, Mer may finally be able to steal precious freedom and peace for herself. After all, a person with a knife is one thing…but a person with a cause can topple kingdoms.

The Drowned Woods—set in the same world as The Bone Houses but with a whole new, unforgettable cast of characters—is part heist novel, part dark fairy tale.

Slow start but what a finish!

Loved this book. it did take time for me to get in to the story (about a 1/3 to half way through) and finally reach a place where I felt invested in the story and characters. The beginning felt sluggish and lacked enough anchors for me personally. HOWEVER! Once storylines started to come together and as the story arch found some ground I was IN IT! The last 1/3 of the book had me invested and not wanting to stop. Great narration as well! Worth adding to your Wishlist.
Good for readers looking for a slow unraveling/pace book with great character growth and found family.
