Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier

Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier

September 26, 2021 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Den of Wolves is the final instalment in the Blackthorn and Grim trilogy, chronicling a new adventure for the duo while tying up their stories admirably. This time, they're enmeshed in a mystery at Wolf Glen, where Grim is contracted to build a mystical structure while Blackthorn takes the daughter of the house under her wing.

Given the way Tower of Thorns ended, I was expecting more significant developments in the dynamic between Blackthorn and Grim. In keeping with the personalities of the characters, however, the resolution was slow and subtle. The characters remained nuanced and likable right to the...

The Caller is a hard book to review. When I turned the last page of this book, I couldn’t help but be sad. I’ve grown to love the characters in the Shadowfell series and the world they live in, and I’ve found it hard to say goodbye.

Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier

Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier

January 27, 2014 Reviews 6 ★★★★

A great example of everything that is good and wonderful about YA fantasy, Shadowfell is bound to enthrall its readers. It has certainly captivated me! Marillier has long been acknowledged as a great storyteller, and it embarrasses me greatly to admit this is the first time I have read her…
