Charwood by Josh Schlossberg
After joining the Tenders, a band of backwoods activists claiming to solve climate change by burning trees for energy, Orna Tannenbaum falls in with Rowan, their odd yet charming leader. But when she uncovers what the Tenders are really up to in the forest, she must apply the ancient wisdom of her culture to battle dark forces threatening to gain a foothold in our world.
An ecological Jewish folk horror novel 5,783 years in the making.
"Schlossberg delivers a blend of Jewish mysticism, the supernatural, and current day environmental challenges in this thought provoking tale that will leave you thinking about it long after you turn the last page." -Daniel Braum, author of The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales
"There is eco-horror. There is religious apocalypse. And then there is Charwood. I promise you will have never read anything like this powerful evocation of ancient Jewish mysticism and the Kabbalah, seamlessly coupled with topical headlines about deforestation and climate change." -Elana Gomel, author of Nightwood
"Charwood is a seamless fusion of Jewish mysticism and ecological horror, thrilling and terrifying in equal measure."
-Richard Dansky, author of Ghost of a Marriage
