Review in Realms of Fantasy Magazine
INTO THE WILD received its very first print review! And it's good! Snoopy Dance of Joy!
It's in the June issue of Realms of Fantasy Magazine. Here's what it says:
"Julie Marchen doesn't lead a normal life. Her mother is Rapunzel, her adopted brother is Puss in Boots, her grandmother is a witch, and the enigmatic force known as the Wild, which was the dominating force behind the fairy tales of old, lives under her bed, just waiting for a chance to break free. But as long as the Wild remains quiescent, its former victims are free of the tales they once inhabited. And then someone makes a wish, and the Wild is free to devour the world. Now Julie is the only one capable of traveling into the Wild to once again defeat it. In the process she'll finally understand what happened to her father, the fateful decisions her mother made, and why she's uniquely qualified to undertake this quest. Into the Wild is an entertaining, introspective, clever remixing of traditional fairy tales with a Labyrinth edge and a self-aware sensibility, and it signals a strong debut from Sarah Beth Durst." -- Michael Jones, Realms of Fantasy Magazine
