'A thicket of roots, thorns, and leaves. Giant trees, and saplings stretching towards what scant light trickled through the thick canopy. Swarms of will-o'-the-wisps above putrid ponds, and clearings where toadstools drew their poisonous circles. Jacob had last been in the Hungry Forest four months earlier, to find a Man-Swan wearing a shirt of nettles over his feathers. But after three days he'd abandoned the search, for he had not been able to breathe under the dark trees.'
