2012 book 138

Juliet Marillier's Shadowfell
I've never read any of Marillier's work before, but this start to a new YA fantasy trilogy makes me want to! It's not too far from the YA fantasy norm--a girl with special gifts in a land with a tyrant king who will want to either kill her or use her horribly, a mysterious and helpful man, lovable magic folk, etc. But Marillier weaves it all into something really riveting. I loved the protagonist and her journey and her friends and can't wait for the sequel. A/A-.

A e-galley was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in September.
