Review: Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier – The Speculative HeraldFrom Goodreads:. 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. Billed as a romance, the first two books focused more on the friendship between the two main characters. In this final instalment, the regard between Blackthorn and Grim turns towards the romantic. There is one overarching thread of story that has run across the whole trilogy, which is brought to a resolution.

Tales from prisoners and down-trodden women and ordinary working folk. Like a lot of threads, frayed and weak, they might be woven into something big and strong and beautiful. And powerful. Where the pain of her loss made her self-centered and blind to the needs of other people, she has learned to look beyond herself and to accept self-sacrifice for the good of those she cares about. Do it for all of us. My Rating:.
