My Swordhand Is Singing - Marcus Sedgewick
This particular author is quite a prolific writer of YA stories in a variety of genres, but it was the mid-European horror story setting that drew me to this particular book.

Peter and his father, who drinks too much, have found themselves something of a home as woodcutters for a village, though they choose to live on its outskirts and associate with the villagers as little as possible. The village then sees two deaths, which are blamed on wolves even though it appears unlikely to say the least. Peter's friend Agnes becomes involved in the second death and in his quest to do the right thing by her, he discovers that his own history is much less straightforward than he had thought.

It's an enjoyable enough book, with Sedgwick working hard to create and maintain a suitably menacing atmosphere, though I felt a little let down by the tone of the ending, which didn't really work for me. I'll certainly keep an eye out for other books by this author, based on my experiences with this one.
