Description

What happens when a foreigner doesn't listen to the local's warnings and dives head-first into a haunted forest?

In search of his missing friend, Adam travels to the heart of Romania's most supernatural forest, Hoia Baciu. Disregarding the local's warnings of iele hunting the men in the vicinity, and the witch's premonition of his impending death, he remains steadfast in his decision to find his friend. Though with every passing night, it becomes impossible to ignore the happenings around him...

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."
