Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:
Anticipated Release Date: November 2016
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…
I believe this situation calls for a “YAAAASSS” of epic proportions. In less than a year, Juliet Marillier has become one of my favourite authors and her books are always an automatic purchase for me, but the Blackthorn & Grim series has a special place in my heart. And after the emotional turmoil of the last book, I anticipate that DEN OF WOLVES will break my heart and then put it back together again.
According to this blog post, Juliet Marillier has been contracted for three novels in the series but hopes to carry on after that. So DEN OF WOLVES has to act as both a conclusion and a jumping-off point for more adventures. Fingers crossed that her contract gets extended, because I could read about Blackthorn & Grim forever!
