Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey

“No one is going. It’s too dangerous. We’ll find food another way!”
Meg hopped over the wattle fence with Poppy close behind. Tupkin slunk through the wheat. I was furious. “Think of Alice, Meg! What if something happens to you?”

Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey is one of those rare books that crawls under your skin and finds a home. And in my humble opinion, completely underrated, though obviously not by me.

From Goodreads:

“On Wilde Island, there is no peace between dragons, fairies, and humans.

Wilde Island is in an uproar over the recent death of its king. As the uneasy pact between dragons, fairies, and humans begins to fray, the royal witch hunter with a hidden agenda begins a vengeful quest to burn girls suspected of witchcraft before a new king is crowned.

Strong-willed Tess, a blacksmith’s daughter from a tiny hamlet, wants more for herself than a husband and a house to keep. But in times like these wanting more can be dangerous. Accused of witchery, Tess and her two friends are forced to flee the violent witch hunter. As their pursuer draws ever closer they find shelter with a huntsman in the outskirts of the forbidden Dragonswood sanctuary. But staying with the mysterious huntsman poses risks of its own: Tess does not know how to handle the attraction she feels for him—or resist the elusive call that draws her deeper onto the heart of Dragonswood”.
