If you love mythology, magic, or heists, you NEED to check out "The Drowned Woods" by Emily Lloyd-Jones.
This magical novel will take you on an action-packed journey through Wales, drawing on Welsh mythology as well as themes of teamwork and vengeance.
Mer is one of the last water diviners, but her power has been abused. Bound to the service of an evil prince — she was tricked into killing hundreds. Now she has escaped and hidden herself from him and his reign of terror. When an old acquaintance shows up with a proposition of vengeance and a plan to bring down the prince, Mer can’t resist. They plan a heist to steal an important artifact that will eliminate the Prince's power. To carry out this complicated plan they recruit a motley crew, each with special skills, including a fae, a thief, and a corgi. Together they must topple a kingdom and eliminate the prince, claiming peace for their land.
