The Harrowed Half-Breed: A Tarnished Lands Story (2018) by P.A. Wikoff is the first in the Fantasy series the Forgotten Woods by the author.

In the book, Wikoff perfectly sets up the scene of the world in which Barne lives and gives a great background and overview to the events in the novella. Barne is half feather folk/half human and these two groups of people are at war with each other. This book has a lovely balance of dealing with important issues and having moments of humour in parts too. The book deals with power issues and felt like it referenced many issues going on in our world today.

The fact that Barne is caught in the middle can be easily understood by anyone who finds themselves caught in the middle in terms of things such as race, gender and sexual or romantic orientation. It also deals with the idea of people coming in and taking over how people should act or feel and the fear involved with prejudice. This book is written with a lot of heart and I loved how the author placed the emphasis on Barne and his search to find a place to belong when he is made feel often like he doesn’t fully belong anywhere.

A very strong write which is did directly and bravely. I love books which challenge issues upologetically and make you be in peoples’ shoes for a bit. A really gorgeous job.
