Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

The very spooky woods
Well-written and exciting fantasy book for teens.  Tyger, Tyger taps into the wealth of material in Irish myth stories.  Our romantic couple is fighting goblins to rescue the girl’s father from Fear Dorich – a fallen angel otherwise known as a devil.  The book is filled with literary references to other works and is intended for sophisticated readers.  Probably better suited to a high school library rather than a K-8.
