Praise for Whisper of the Woods
"Iurov’s visual vocabulary, full of knowing glances, violent confrontations, and horrifying visions of a mind answering the call of evil, is a horror lover’s dream. [...] A chilling treat for the ravenous reader."
— Emilia Packard
"The author delivers an exciting work. Iurov’s page-turner effectively familiarizes readers with a Romanian legend as well as some Romanian language, sometimes translated (such as sub casa?, which means basement), which makes the book even more immersive and engrossing. The full-color illustrations are an intriguing contrast to the haunting nature of the story it tells, featuring bright colors and scenes during the daytime, which precede the darkness of the Hoia Baciu forest and other, more off-putting imagery. A well-illustrated and very satisfying horror tale."
