Inevitable Comparisons

Similarities to TTW:
A foreknowledge and dread burrow into the prose and grow throughout the tale.
Supernatural elements are incorporated in a believable, enjoyable way.
Setting is essential to plot.
Love, both bitter and sweet, abides.

Differences from TTW:
The plot is left rather unresolved.
The characters of HFS border on charicature, and are not as endearing.
Darkness eclipses purity.
Linear, omniscient narrative with imposed complexities.

Also, check out The Secret Year for a great YA book idea, if imperfectly executed.
