Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones. I’ve read The Bone Houses a few years back, still need to read The Hearts We Sold, and I found it enjoyable. Emily does a great job at creating atmosphere – I always loved her locations. So I was very excited to find out about The Drowned Woods, which just sounds right up my alley – retelling, magic, oh and set in the same world as The Bone Houses!
I wont be getting to this until next month at the earliest, so to find out what other’s think you can scroll to the bottom for the Tour Schedule with links to other content creator’s pages.

A magical, ethereal fantasy from IndieBound bestselling author Emily Lloyd-Jones.
Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict, and eighteen-year-old Mererid “Mer” is well-acquainted with both. She is the last living water diviner and has spent years running from the prince who bound her into his service. Under the prince’s orders, she located the wells of his enemies, and he poisoned them without her knowledge, causing hundreds of deaths. After discovering what he had done, Mer went to great lengths to disappear from his reach. Then Mer’s old handler returns with a proposition: use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.
The best way to do that is to destroy the magical well that keeps the prince’s lands safe. With a motley crew of allies, including a fae-cursed young man, the lady of thieves, and a corgi that may or may not be a spy, Mer may finally be able to steal precious freedom and peace for herself. After all, a person with a knife is one thing…but a person with a cause can topple kingdoms.
The Drowned Woods—set in the same world as The Bone Houses but with a whole new, unforgettable cast of characters—is part heist novel, part dark fairy ta
