    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...

    Put aside the training and the trials that tend to hold these stories back, take the mute POV of the least-likable protagonist with a grain of salt, and forgive the inclusion of a precocious child on whom so much comes to rest. What matters here is the setting, the supporting cast of c...

    I'm even more excited about this one after seeing this from Juliet Marillier in answer to a question about whether she'll write more Blackthorn & Grim stories: The publishers didn't want a continuation of the series, but my new series, Warrior Bards, features the same setting an...

    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, ...
