    Juliet Marillier has been writing historical fantasy for long enough that she is clearly comfortable in that world, working in all the little details that delight readers who want to sink into a world. I believe this is the beginning of a new series, and if I'm right, that would exp...

    I have been a long-time fan of Juliet Marillier's writing and the worlds she has created, but this effort felt a little flat to me. There was still action and adventure and spying, in the human world and among the fae, but we didn't spend enough time with the three main characters or t...

    All I knew was that it's a new book by Juliet Marillier. I. Must. Read. It. I didn't really bother finding out what the book was about so you can just imagine my pleasure to find out when I started reading that it's set in the same universe as that of Blackthorn & Grimm's because I...

    I've been a fan of Juliet Marillier ever since I first started reading her Blackthorn and Grim series a few years ago so I was absolutely thrilled to find out that she was returning to this world with The Harp of Kings. Although the new Warrior Bards series can easily be read without r...

    This begins terribly. It?s stilted. It?s almost - rusty, in a way - painstakingly put together, but it still squeaks. Despite the deliberate quality to the writing, the pacing is uneven, and the backstory is dispensed with awkward stinginess. The point of view jumps feel unnecessar...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/12/05/... I?ll always and forever be a big fan of Juliet Marillier, but I also have to be honest, and the truth is I wasn?t too crazy about this one. Bear in mind though, I?ve probably been spoiled so hard by h...

    This is not a perfect book. The plot is thin and I don't find this story super memorable. That being said, I adored the writing and the characters, and reading it just made me feel so happy and absorbed in the story. I love Juliet's writing so much. I just wanted to take my time and re...

    CW: Sexual assault, physical abuse. Until this, I had never picked up a Juliet Marillier book. Now, I think I'm going to have to binge read more from her. Long story short, this book was ADDICTIVE. This story follows Liobhan and Brocc, who are brother and sister and in training o...

    I really loved this one! I haven't read Marillier in years, and I'm so happy that she's just as amazing as I remembered her. I thought the story was interesting, and it kept my attention throughout. I love the Celtic and fantasy elements, and I'm really excited that this is a series wi...

    Liobhan and her brother Brocc are training on a warrior island. They are sent along with Dau on a mission to recover the Harp of Kings in time for the new king to be crowned. Of course, being a story from Marillier, supernatural things abound. It's full of Marillier's classic writing, ...

    There is something about Juliet Marillier?s writing. She grips you from the start with a mixture of magical Celtic atmosphere, gripping storyline, slow-burning romance and humour. As soon as I heard that she was releasing another series, I WAS IN! I have enjoyed every single book of ...

    Review from Tenacious Reader: http://www.tenaciousreader.com/2019/0... After reading the Blackthorn and Grim series by Marillier, I just knew I had to read more of her work. While I?ve not yet made time for backlist books, this start to a new series was irresistible. It also had a...

    4.5 harps. A terrific beginning to a new series by Juliet Marillier. The character work was great, as usual, with complicated motivations and emotions at work amongst the three PoV warrior-trainees. I haven?t read this author?s Blackthorn and Grim series yet, and thankfully it?s...

    A Marillier almost put me into a book slump. A Marillier. What even is life. This was one of my top top anticipated reads of the year and yet.. I don't know what happened? Maybe this was a me thing, I don't know, but this just wasn't working me until the last 20%. I fully finished t...

    4.5 stars Exactly what I was expecting from Juliet Marillier in terms of quality. I loved the story, and getting some idea of how things went for Blackthorn and Grim after their story came to a close was an extra bonus. Since it is Marillier, of course there were some emotional a...

    This was a little slower than I'd have liked but I did eventually get through it. It's a pretty light on fantasy about music, nature and Fair Folk with a mild dose of court behaviour. Slightly too bland for my tastes, if I'm honest. The plot: On Swan Island, brother Brocc and sister...

    Prior to winning this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, I had not heard of Juliet Marillier. Apparently, her most popular books came out when I was still a little too young to read them, but after skimming some of her info on Goodreads, I realized she has quite a devoted fanbase. Now, havi...
