A History of Wild Places

A History of Wild Places

Thank you, Atria Books, for gifting me a copy of A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw.

Genre: Mystery/Fantasy

Pub Date: 12.7.21

Star Rating: ☆☆☆☆

“There is no history in a place until we make it until you live a life worth remembering.” 

Shea Ernshaw stole my heart in Wicked Deep last year (if you haven’t read it, you absolutely must), and when I saw she was releasing a new book, I knew I had to have it. 

I don’t usually judge a book by the opening sentence, but A History of Wild Places has an opening sentence that is 💯. The first chapter of the book is roughly 40 pages, and then the story transitions into shorter chapters that focus on three unique characters with their own stories to tell. 

I had no idea the direction Ernshaw was taking me as I read each chapter, and I was blown away by the ending – it was genuinely fascinating and had me thinking long after I finished the last page about how unique the entire book was. 

📖 Short Chapters

🤍 Strong, relatable characters (Theo, Calla & Bee)

🌳 Commune setting

🕵🏽‍♀️ Slow burn mystery

I recommend you read A History of Wild places if you’re a fan of The Wicked Deep or Where the Forest Meets the Stars
