Goodreads synopsis

“Ellerie Downing lives in the quiet town of Amity Falls in the Blackspire Mountain range–five narrow peaks stretching into the sky like a grasping hand, bordered by a nearly impenetrable forest from which the early townsfolk fought off the devils in the woods. To this day, visitors are few and rare. But when a supply party goes missing, some worry that the monsters that once stalked the region have returned. As fall turns to winter, more strange activities plague the town. They point to a tribe of devilish and mystical creatures who promise to fulfill the residents’ deepest desires, however grand and impossible, for just a small favor. But their true intentions are much more sinister, and Ellerie finds herself in a race against time before all of Amity Falls, her family, and the boy she loves go up in flames.”

Book Review:

Thank you to NetGalley and Delacorte Press for giving me an e-arc for review.

This is Erin A. Craig’s second book, and I had a great time reading it. I enjoyed her first book a little better, but this was still a great book that kept me on the edge of my seat. I gave it 4 stars.

Small Favors is a book is about the mysteries of a forest and what those mysteries hold. A lot of strange things happen to the small town over a course of a year. Friendly neighbors are no longer being friendly, and begin turning against one another. What is what happening to this town? It seems that the pass is coming back to haunt them. This story had me guessing about who or what was causing all the havoc.

Craig’s last book was based off the fairy tale 12 dancing princesses, and Small Favors has a small base story of Rumpelstiltskin. I find her fairytale based stories to be enjoyable reads.
