With all genre series, but in the YA set in particular, it is so utterly rare to uncover one that truly builds as it goes. But Juliet Marillier’s Shadowfell.

Juliet Marillier

Eager to hide her own canny skill—a uniquely powerful ability to communicate with the fairy-like Good Folk—Neryn sets out for the legendary Shadowfell, a home and training ground for a secret rebel group determined to overthrow the evil Shadwofell Keldec. I knew exactly how everything would unfold, so I could not appreciate her character growth. And Jyliet just adored Flint and couldn’t get enough of him! Her lifelong interest in history, folklore and mythology has had a major influence on her writing.

On a normal day, I’m the kind of reader who shamelessly marullier over sexy Alpha type of men with cocky attitudes, who like to make a habit of falling in desire for their women at the very first glance. But the world is what will keep me coming back for more. It’s a difficult genre to pin down, really.

Neryn meets many different types of people and good folk during her travels and Marillier really brought them and the land they call home to life for me. Her inner monologue and thoughts are very readable and easily engrossing, but I do think that a more skeptical eye, a more discerning look at what she sees and hears, would clear up a lot of unnecessary conflicts that pop up more than once with Flint.

Overall, Shadowfell is a great start to a new series. Shadowfell, despite being a novel that I simply loved, mostly because of its genre, was one in which the heroine unfortunately fell flat.

Flint is a character of contradictions as well. View all 6 comments.


Hardcoverpages. I have no juliwt that if it comes down to it, she’ll make the hard choice. Lastly, the dialogue was sometime awkward and unnecessarily pompous. Juliet’s novels and short stories have won many awards.

I can’t say without doubt that you won’t be dying from boredom, but I sure didn’t, not for a second, and it was a page-turner for me trust me, I’m astonished.
