The Butcher of The Forest

At the northern edge of a land ruled by a merciless, foreign tyrant lies a wild, forbidden forest ruled by powerful magic.
“Written with the deft hands of a master, this is a tale for anyone who loves an ancient cursed forest (including us, Team Premee), a take-no-shit protagonist (also us), and exciting, inventive magic (you guessed it—we love that shit).”

– Reactor Magazine

“Heart-breaking and fear-striking, this book will catch you up in its claws and wring you out, all in the best possible way!”
