Waiting on Wednesday: Vol. 40

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:

Den of Wolves by Juliet MarillierDen of Wolves by Juliet Marillier (Blackthorn & Grim #3)

Genre: Fantasy

Publisher: Roc

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.

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!

  1. Eep, I can’t wait! I really hope she writes more, because I agree, I could read about Blackthorn and Grim forever.

    What do you think of the cover? I love the colors, but I sort of think the woman’s face makes her look like a Barbie doll. XD

    1. Same! Although I do worry about them. Marillier is a fantastic author but she’s not always kind to her characters…and poor B & G have been through so much already. I have a silly hope that they’ll be allowed to have some happiness should the series progress past the third book, but i know it’s unlikely, haha.

      Wow…until you mentioned that, I was in love with this cover. You’re right, her face is a bit unfortunate! Haha. Oh well, I still think it’s pretty. And most importantly, it’s going to look good next to the other two on my shelves. 😉

      1. I think her characters get happy endings for the most part? They just suffer a lot before they get there. xD

        Oh no, I’m sorry! /o I do think it looks pretty, too. I mean, those colors. *__* This whole series has the best covers!

    1. YES! I’m really happy that she’s getting good cover art. Juliet Marillier should just write always, and never let her poor characters be happy, haha. But seriously though, I would read 10 B & G books easily.

    1. WoW twins! I feel like this happens a lot – we must have the same Google alerts set up for big cover reveals! 😀

      I’m holding out for five. Five is a good, strong number, and not so high that the series will get unwieldy. Fingers crossed!

  2. I’m always interested in the books you feature in these posts and it’s just making me realise I really need to read some Juliet Marillier books. I think this every time I see any posts featuring her books and then proceed to not buy them. They look so interesting and knowing this is one wraps up one story arc is a perfect excuse to binge read it. Even if this is just the ending to one trilogy, that’s a perfect time to start reading right?

    1. YES! NOBODY PANIC! Becky’s going to read some Marillier, people!!! Hahaha. <— I am excited about this.

      Honestly, I don't know if I ever would have heard of Juliet Marillier without getting into blogging. Her books are so painful and heart-wrenching yet still beautiful and hopeful somehow. I hope that I (and all the other bloggers who love her) haven't hyped her up too much, and that you end up loving her books! Dreamer's Pool, the first Blackthorn & Grim book, is a great place to start with her work.

      1. I know, right? Everyone needs to chill, it’s a completely normal situation. I’m just a girl going to read another book.

        I am exactly the same, I had never heard of her and then there was a whole new world of books opened to me when I started blogging. It’s good, but my shelves and my bank balance are not completely grateful. And this is good, it’s great to know the best place to start. I will avoid all hype and just get reading. I haven’t heard too much about her books, or no more than most books I’ve bought before, anyway. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  3. I am cringing as I write this, but I have not yet started this series…but this beautiful cover is getting me fired up to start it soon!
