The Wicker King is a fascinating novel filled with friendship, worry, and madness. The story revolves around Jack and August - two friends who are the textbook definition of opposites attract. When Jack starts to get hallucinations August helps by believing in him and what he sees as what a friend should. Then Jack and August went on an expedition to fulfill a dark prophecy while struggling not to lose their own sanity.
The author K. Ancrum did an exceptional job of describing the characters physically and mentally. The author description of the setting was poor so he could have described it with a bit more detail. The storyline moved fairly quickly and did not drag on. It had many unsuspecting twists and turns making readers want to find out what happens next. Something unique about this book is the illustrations on the page and the pages itself, like the police forms and the posters they see around the school. The Wicker King by K. Ancrum is a truly astonishing novel. - Savina
