Gods of the Wyrdwood is the newest book by RJ Barker. I knew I had to get my hands on it as soon as possible. I love the forest and the pitch for this series sounded super interesting, so I went in with high expectations. And it sort of met them? I’m conflicted about this one. Let’s get into it.

Review: Call of the Bone Ships (The Tide Child Trilogy #2)
The Call of the Bone Ships is part 2 in R.J.

That being said, I still found it to be a very enjoyable read.
