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...

I sped through Witchshadow, despite my best attempts to savour the experience of reading it. I love this story-world and its characters, and happily devoured the fourth instalment of the Witchlands series.

Sightwitch by Susan Dennard

Sightwitch by Susan Dennard

June 4, 2020 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Sightwitch is a clever prequel told from Ryber Fortiza’s point of view that sheds light into the events of Truthwitch and Windwitch. Although it’s a prequel, I think readers are best placed to read it after the first two full-length novels.

The third instalment in this series begins almost immediately where The Mime Order left off – with Paige coming to grips with the deception that had been revealed to her. But her tenuous grip on the Mime Order and uneasy alliance with there Rephaim leave her with very little time to recover, especially when a new threat is revealed.
