"I will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no shelter but me."
If you get the opportunity to read The Darkling's prequel story- GRAB IT WITH BOTH HANDS. From novellas about how the 'evil' character came to be, the story usually ends with them planning something terrible about how they'll bring death and slaughter in revenge or spite. But The Demon in the Wood portrays The Darkling as the 'good' character and ends with The Darkling wanting to change the world- but for the better. It allows you to see why people followed him, how he got so powerful and you wonder what went SO wrong. You connect with him even more. I love that Leigh has you questioning your judgement of good and evil, you truly understand that no-one is born evil and nobody is truly evil.
