This Week I’m Waiting On…..


22567184Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier

Publication: November 1st 2016

Publisher: Roc

Series: Blackthorn & Grim #3

Genres: Adult Fiction, Historical Fantasy, Magic, Folklore, Retelling

The “powerful and emotionally-charged” fantasy series from the author of the Sevenwaters novels continues, as Blackthorn and Grim face haunting secrets and old adversaries…

Feather bright and feather fine, None shall harm this child of mine…

Healer Blackthorn knows all too well the rules of her bond to the fey: seek no vengeance, help any who ask, do only good. But after the recent ordeal she and her companion, Grim, have suffered, she knows she cannot let go of her quest to bring justice to the man who ruined her life.

Despite her personal struggles, Blackthorn agrees to help the princess of Dalriada in taking care of a troubled young girl who has recently been brought to court, while Grim is sent to the girl’s home at Wolf Glen to aid her wealthy father with a strange task—repairing a broken-down house deep in the woods. It doesn’t take Grim long to realize that everything in Wolf Glen is not as it seems—the place is full of perilous secrets and deadly lies…

Back at Winterfalls, the evil touch of Blackthorn’s sworn enemy reopens old wounds and fuels her long-simmering passion for justice. With danger on two fronts, Blackthorn and Grim are faced with a heartbreaking choice—to stand once again by each other’s side or to fight their battles alone…

Why Am I Waiting?

I adore this series! I just finished reading book 2, Tower of Thorns, last week (review coming soon) and it was a solid sequel to Dreamer’s Pool. I love how Marillier takes a little folklore and adds her own spin to the story. Cannot wait for more Blackthorn and Grim. If you love magic, fae, folklore, and historical fantasy, then this series is worth a try. What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I’m more concerned with books I own at the moment rather than getting more, so nothing in particular that I am currently waiting on. Hope you can get to this one soon because it’s a sequel to some books you’ve liked so far.


    • The whole story may not be just one reimagining. She just adds certain details, and if you don’t automatically recognize it, you won’t even know that it’s part of an old fairy tale or folklore. She writes it all so beautifully.


    • I just started this series at the end of last year, but I really love it. I had her Shadowfell trilogy in paperback, that I purchased on a whim years ago, but I ended up donating it to the library. Now I wish I’d kept them.


I love comments, and try to reply as often as I can. Know that I read each and every one.
