Luminaries - Susan Dennard
Ever since her father was exposed as a witch and a traitor, Winnie and her family have been shunned. But on her sixteenth birthday, she can take the deadly Luminary hunter trials and prove herself true and loyal--and restore her family's good name. Or die trying.
Winnie Wednesday wants nothing more than to join the Luminaries, the ancient order that protects Winnie's town--and the rest of humanity--from the monsters and nightmares that rise in the forest of Hemlock Falls every night.
Not all monsters can be slain, and not all nightmares are confined to the dark.
But in order to survive, Winnie enlists the help of the one person who can help her train: Jay Friday, resident bad boy and Winnie's ex-best friend. While Jay might be the most promising new hunter in Hemlock Falls, he also seems to know more about the nightmares of the forest than he should. Together, he and Winnie will discover a danger lurking in the forest no one in Hemlock Falls is prepared for.
