Publisher's Summary

The "powerful and emotionally charged" fantasy series from the author of the Sevenwaters novels continues, as Blackthorn and Grim face haunting secrets and old adversaries.

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.

    "Everyone Should Have A Grim :-}"

    I admit, I approached this series with some caution, as I had tried to listen to two other series by this author, and just couldn't get into the stories. Looking at some of the reviews for Blackthorn and Grim, made me think that this one might be different. Many of those who loved the "Sevenwaters" series and the "Bridei" series didn't like the "Blackthorn and Grim", and I had to wonder why. As I said, I just couldn't get into the two mentioned series, as they are much more like Historical Fiction, than Fantasy, even though they do have some fantasy elements. This series though, is much more Fantasy, and I LOVE IT :-} As you might have guessed, my favorite character is Grim. He is the truest of fiends. Everyone should have a friend like Grim. I have a feeling that this is the final book in this amazing series, but I for one would be happy to read more about Blackthorn and Grim.

    "Brilliant "

    This series has been brilliant! I have really enjoyed it. The narration was excellent. If you enjoy tales of old Ireland and Celtic mythology this series is for you.

    "Third Time's The Charm"


    This is the third and hopefully not last novel in Marillier's Blackthorn and Grim fantasy series. It's as good, if not better, than the previous two. Den Of Wolves has a well executed plot and expertly developed characters.

    Strong females are consistently front-and-center in this dark fairy tale-like world. Although the reader experiences other-worldly creatures, the atmosphere is actually more comparable to magic realism.

    This series does not have a lot of the war and bloodshed as in many epic fantasy series, but don't be fooled...it can be equally as brutal. The focus is on character interaction, survival, and of course, the unique relationship between the haunting Blackthorn and the gentle giant, Grim.

    There is closure to the storyline in this novel, but the characters are so strong that the opportunity is there for the series to continue. I hope it does.

    "A Master Class in Fantasy Fiction Writing."


    Astonishing, glorious and engrossing, I hated to see this book end -- and I thought book 2 was amazing!

    With this series, and particularly Den of Wolves, Marillier provides a master class in fantasy fiction writing worthy of Lois McMaster Bujold's *World of the Five Gods* series -- a personal favorite.

    In this series, she has crafted an authentic world rich in human emotion, filled with simple everyday people and their stories. Every lush description, every story told, becomes a spell weaving an absorbing connection to her characters and their world. I'm truly blown away.

    With such an intricate plot, it would have been easy for a lesser writer to go off the forest path and lose their way, but Marillier writes with confidence, and keeps her footing right to the end as she brings Blackthorn and Grim's journey full circle. Her parting gift? A satisfying end to all the loose threads, while still leaving room for more to come. I couldn't be happier or more impressed.

    But right now, I'm missing Big Man and Lady so much that I'm wondering what I'll do with myself now that the last tale is over. I guess I'll be stalking Juliet Marillier's FB page, waiting for news about Blackthorn and Grim, hoping they're resting easy in their cottage for now, having a brew, while Ripple dreams on the hearth before the fire.

    I hope they're taking it easy. They'll need all their strength for the next adventure,

    Book 4 can't come soon enough.


    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -- The whole series! -- For everyone but young readers.

    "wounderfull story "

    If you have never read or listened to this author you are in for a treat. These stories are dark to start with so if that is not to your liking then do not get them. The author write with such depth that I wounder if there is a tragic event in the past that lens itself to the depth.

    "The best one so far!!!"

    According to Juliette, she was only contracted for 3 books but trying to talk whoever in to letting her do a 4th. I really really hope she succeeded in that!!!! Den of Wolves was by far the best one but I'd relisten to the others as well.

    "Most enjoyable - loved it!"

    I loved this book's main story, which was yet again filled with imagination. But this book also has a lovely way of rounding off Blackthorn and Grim's troublesome past.
    I didn't enjoy the idea that a story so rounded might mean the end of the series - please, no!
    I'm really hoping Blackthorn & Grim will simply enter a new phase of uncanny detections.
    I recommend Blackthorn & Grim to anyone that enjoys magical soothing and the romance of true enduring love that has a slow but steady build.
    I will hope and look for another in this series. Bravo!

    Story
    "I need more Blackthorn and Grim!"
    Would you listen to Den of Wolves again? Why?

    I am so sad that this is the last Blackthorn and Grim book - I need more! I've already listened to it twice - the same with the first two books too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Blackthorn and Grim both equally, and this time, there's a dog to love too!


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    They are all great. I've raved about the narrators in my reviews on the books 1 and 2 in the series and it's great that they're back for this last one. I couldn't stand it if they changed one of them!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My extreme reaction was when I finished the book, because it sunk in that there are no more books in the series! So I read all three again.


    Any additional comments?

    As other reviewers have mentioned, the relationship between Blackthorn and Grim is platonic, which is so refreshing to see. The bond between them is unbreakable, and they would do anything for each other. They are damaged people, connected through their shared trauma. They support and love each other through anything and everything, and that makes me feel good!!!
