Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the author of a cult-classic book of dark fairy tales, dies on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away --- by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began --- and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
