From the New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows comes a mesmerizing and chilling fairy-talesque novel about Ellerie Downing, a young woman in a small town with monsters lurking in the trees and dark desires hidden in the shadows—in Amity Falls, nothing is more dangerous than a wish come true.

"Unique, enchanting, and haunting."—Brigid Kemmerer, New York Times bestselling author of the Cursebreaker series

“Full of beasts, bargains, and blood, Small Favors is a folk horror tale that feels like a classic but is utterly fresh. Sweet, dark, and complex as wildflower honey.”—Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf

"A deliciously dark fairy tale filled with bone-chilling horror and breathtaking romance that will keep you turning the pages long into the night."—Kara Thomas, author of The Cheerleaders and That Weekend

“As dark and romantic as it haunting, Small Favors is an eerie fairytale that I couldn’t put down.”—Alexis Henderson, author of The Year of the Witching

Ellerie Downing is waiting for something to happen. Life in isolated Amity Falls, surrounded by an impenetrable forest, has a predictable sameness. Her days are filled with tending to her family's beehives, chasing after her sisters, and dreaming of bigger things while her twin, Samuel, is free to roam as he wishes.

Early town settlers fought off monstrous creatures in the woods, and whispers that the creatures still exist keep the Downings and their neighbors from venturing too far. When some townsfolk go missing on a trip to fetch supplies, a heavy unease settles over the Falls.

Strange activities begin to plague the town, and as the seasons change, it's clear that something is terribly wrong. The creatures are real, and they're offering to fulfill the residents' deepest desires, however grand, for just a small favor. These seemingly trifling demands, however, hide sinister intentions. Soon Ellerie finds herself in a race against time to stop Amity Falls, her family, and the boy she loves from going up in flames.

艾萊麗·唐寧正在等待事情發生。生活在與世隔絕的安麥提瀑布小鎮,周圍環繞著如一般認知難以穿越的森林。她的日子就是照料家人的蜂箱、和姐妹玩耍、及好多的夢想,而她的雙胞胎哥哥山繆爾則可以隨心所欲地遨遊。
 
早期的小鎮居民擊退了樹林中可怕的生物,但這些生物仍然存在時有耳聞,這讓唐寧一家和他們的鄰居不敢冒險走得太遠。當一些鎮民在取物資的途中失踪時,小鎮上瀰漫著強烈的不安情緒。
 
奇怪的活動開始困擾這個小鎮,隨著季節的變化,很明顯有些事情不對勁了。這些生物是真實的,牠們願意滿足居民最深切且無論多麼宏大的願望,只要幫牠們小小的忙。然而,這些看似微不足道的要求卻隱藏著險惡的意圖。很快,艾萊麗發現自己正在與時間賽跑,以阻止安麥提瀑布小鎮、她的家人和她所愛的男孩被毀滅。
