Beginning Woods by McNeill Malcolm
A MYSTERY NO ONE CAN SOLVE The Vanishings started without warning. People disappearing into thin air - just piles of clothes left behind. Each day thousands gone without a trace. A BABY NO ONE WANTED Max was abandoned in a bookshop and grows up haunted by memories of his parents. Only he can solve the mystery of the Vanishings. A SECRET THAT COULD SAVE THE FUTURE To find the answers Max must leave this world and enter the Beginning Woods. A realm of magic and terror life and death. But can he bear the truth - or will it destroy him? A STORY THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO ANOTHER WORLD Greater than your dreams. Darker than your fears. Full of more wonder than you could ever desire. Welcome to the ineffable Beginning Woods...
