Colin Meloy is a member of The Decemberests one of my favorite bands. When I found out that he was writing books I had to read them. The first book Wildwood was not a disappointment. I loved the idea of it and that I have been to the places that he writes about.
Under Wildwood is the second in the trilogy. This time it takes place under the park, it is a bit darker and has a few more new characters that I happed to like. I know publishing companies are pushing for trilogies and in some cases that is a bad thing and in other a good one. In the case of Under Wildwood it is neutral. This is a set up book for the third installment and that is ok. The third book is out and next year I will read it.
