Hooded figures begin to appear in the forest near the village, readying for an attack, but why are they targeting so many innocent lives? The creatures bring a multitude of shocking and gruesome memories for Richard, a Woodmyst villager, who begins to believe that the current attacks on his village are revenge for something horrific that took place a long time ago.

The Walls of Woodmyst by Robert E Kreig is an incredible blend of drama and fantasy that follows the lives and history of the people of Woodmyst village. The novel’s world-building is exceptional as the author describes the inhabitants’ lives in the lush, idyllic village of Woodmyst. It is a world that uproots the reader from the immediate environment and thrusts them into a stunningly imagined and excellently developed world shaken by the horrors of violent attacks. The setting itself feels like a character on its own right. The cast of characters is well-developed and the sterling writing mixes with the strong imagery and skilfully crafted dialogues to deliver the kind of entertainment readers seek in original, action-packed tales that are suspenseful.
