"""A true story of the woods, of the fae, and of the heart. Deep and green and wonderful.""-Naomi Novik

He had forgotten the size of the man.

Even the Wild Man of Greenhollow can't ignore a summons from his mother, when that mother is the indomitable Adela Silver, practical folklorist. Henry Silver does not relish what he'll find in the grimy seaside town of Rothport, where once the ancient wood extended before it was drowned beneath the sea-a missing girl, a monster on the loose, or, worst of all, Tobias Finch, who loves him.

In this stunning sequel to Silver in the Wood and the conclusion to The Greenhollow Duology, Emily Tesh once again invites readers to lose themselves in the story of Henry and Tobias, and the magic of a myth they've always known."

EMILY TESH grew up in London and studied Classics at Trinity College, Cambridge, followed by a Master's degree in Humanities at the University of Chicago. She now lives in Hertfordshire, where she passes her time teaching Latin and Ancient Greek to schoolchildren who have done nothing to deserve it. She has a husband and a cat. Neither of them knows any Latin yet, but it is not for lack of trying. Tesh is the author of The Greenhollow Duology, which begins with Silver in the Wood and concludes with Drowned Country.

Reviews for Drowned Country (#2 Greenhollow Duology)

From Astounding Award Winner and Crawford Award Finalist Emily Tesh A Buzzfeed Summer 2020 Must-Read A Book Riot Must-Read Fantasy of 2020 The tender, frustrated romance between the dramatic Henry and taciturn Tobias shines. Tesh's second outing is elegant, evocative, and irresistible.--Publishers Weekly, starred review Complex, dreamy. . . . A beautiful tale full of quiet courage, magic rooted in the soil or the curling branches of trees, and a strong, determined queer love.--Booklist, starred review If you're looking for a strong ensemble of characters, high stakes, and a delicious tension-filled lovers quarrel, it doesn't get any better than this.--Book Riot Drowned Country really is a beautiful book, the sort that makes you happy to live in a world where you can read it. It abounds in humour, adventure, tenderness, magic, and a sort of poetry. The story is peopled with characters I care about, and above all, it is haunted by a Wood that I both dream of and fear to be lost in.--Smart Bitches, Trashy Books The love story between Henry and Tobias is a charming addition to the plot as they rekindle their former relationship during their journey. . . . Following Silver in the Wood, this latest installment is just as magical.--Library Journal Drowned Country is even more of a triumph than its stellar predecessor. . . . It's great to read queer romances, and it's even better to read complex queer romances.--Geekly, Inc. Praise for Silver in the Wood A wildly evocative and enchanting story of old forests, forgotten gods, and new love. Just magnificent.--Jenn Lyons Alive with old magic, Silver in the Wood made my hair stand on end even as it beckoned me to go deeper, and in the end I couldn't resist.--C. L. Polk Exquisitely crafted. . . . This fresh, evocative short novel heralds a welcome new voice in fantasy.--Publishers Weekly A gorgeous novella that feels somewhere between fairy tale and myth, only it's the kind of myth that is probably true.--Smart Bitches, Trashy Books Find a quiet place in a nearby wood, listen to the trees whisper, and thank the old gods and new for this beautiful little book, of which I intend to get lost in again and again.--Book Riot It is easy to praise flash and sparkle, but the beauty of the simple and lighter-than-air is more difficult to capture. Silver in the Wood's sparkle is that of clear water; its flash the snap of a crackling fire, and Tesh's prose reads like returning to a dream long-forgotten or a song half-remembered. It is, needless to say, excellent.--Alexandra Rowland Tesh lured me into her rich fairytale narrative with the warmth and strangeness, then hooked me on her intricate characters. Silver in the Wood is a novella of quiet yearning and old secrets, gentle woodsmen and fierce dryads and mothers you really shouldn't mess with. --Kerstin Hall
