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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great cast continues as Blackthorn & Grimm"

    I’m addicted now.
    From the first book through this third of the series, the actors who play Blackthorn & Grimm change with their characters. First book, their voices were rough, angry, etc. Second book, they were more relaxed. This book, they are almost through working their bad experiences. The actors have changed and grown along with their characters.
    Story is great. I’ll be listening to the entire series.

    "Heading in the right direction"

    I found all 3 of these books slow to start and easy to finish. I was disappointed to read that there would not be anymore Blackthorn and Grim books published... even though I had a tough time with the first half of book 1 and had to listen to the first 2 chapters of this book 3 or 4 times before it caught my attention enough to stop my mind from wandering. I love the way the story was heading and was looking forward to seeing Blackthorn evolve as a character now that some weight has been lifted.

    "Best of the three"

    The further adventures of B&G. This one is the best in the series as the plot doesn't meander quite so much. First, Grim is offered an unusual job that takes him away from home which is difficult for him since he and Blackthorn rely heavily on each other. Blackthorn is also not taking their separation well and in addition to that has to deal with an unusual visitor. The loose ends are tied up in the event that the series ends, though the characters could certainly be revisited.

    "Wonderful"

    I really enjoyed the newest Blackthorn novel. This tale has the expected magical mystery. I enjoyed the character of Cars and thought that her growth and development was well done. I also enjoyed the development of Grim's character and the deepening relationship between blackthorn and Grim. This was done naturally and without cloying sentimentality. Another wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable tale

    "MORE PLEASE!"
    Would you listen to Den of Wolves again? Why?

    Yes! Great Story, Great narration!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! Adventure,Magic... The character development is logical given the challenges and solid foundation laid in previous books. Believable but not without surprises.


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

    Blackthorn, Grimm, Bry - hard to decide but probably Blackthorn most


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were quite a few of these, times I should have turned off the audio and got busy or went to sleep- and then I was forced to as the battery ran down!


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me this is not the end of Blackthorn and Grimm's journey - more from Prince Orin and his family, more of them All...except for one of them.....
