Reviewed by Rabid ReadsLast year in DREAMER S POOL we met Blackthorn and Grim who uickly became two of my new favorite characters They are both wonderfully horribly broken but that mutual brokenness is what made them so compatible As friends as cohorts as travel companions Blackthorn fueled by her implacable hatred of the man who took everything from her uickly stole the spotlight not only is she a healer a position regarded with respect she is the forthright of the two She may be surly and taciturn but if something needs to be said Blackthorn is the one to say itGrim was the strong back for lifting heavy objects He took odd jobs performing manual labor for various townspeople and when he spoke he used as few words as possible Obviously there was to him than that but he was inarguably the Robin to Blackthorn s Batman And he s perfectly happy there Or as happy as a man like him is capable of being happyThis time around Grim still silent still steady burrowed so deeply into my heart that he s still there months after I first read this bookI can t think of him without a corresponding ache Marillier so brilliantly captured his patience his selflessness his calm acceptance of his perceived lack of any real usefulness and his belief that one day it s only a matter of time Blackthorn will get tired of him and send him on his way worthless sod that he isIt hurts Ye gods it hurts But it hurts the way it hurts to look at Chihuly glass in the sunlight or heathered fields in Virginia It hurts bc it s so damn beautifulIn TOWER OF THORNS Blackthorn and Grim are once thrust into the strangeness that goes hand in hand with fey creatures and magic A woman has come to court begging Prince Oran for assistance Her land and her people are plagued by a creature in a tower It howls in agony from sunup to sundown every single day The tower is surrounded by a hedge of impenetrable thorns and all attempts to get through them result in injury and deathMarillier spins her story so deftly that you wonder if you ve heard it before But no it s not possible you have no idea what s going to happen and yet it feels so familiar Bc it is the uintessential fairytale There are secrets and selfishness harsh truths and conseuences But there is also peace and forgiveness and a path out of the shadows onto a sunlit road You only have to step out of the darknessTOWER OF THORNS by Juliet Mariller is bloody fantastic As much as I loved DREAMER S POOL and I did love it this second installment of BLACKTHORN AND GRIM has taken up residence inside me it s now part of me and I will make a nuisance of myself pushing it on everyone bc you NEED to experience it for yourself Tied with Uprooted by Naomi Novik for my favorite book of 2015Pre ReviewYou know this has been a ridiculously good book year Even with the myriad disappointments the good ones have been so bloody good that the others just sort of fade away I honestly can t tell you whether I like this one or Uprooted bestSame kind of dark fairy tale Same kind of anachronistic main character pairing Same overwhelming beauty but two completely different tales GAH Just trust me and make sure you read Dreamer s Pool before this one is released in NovemberFull review closer to release dateMy other reviews for this series Dreamer s Pool Blackthorn Grim 1 by Juliet Marillier Den of Wolves Blackthorn Grim 3 by Juliet Marillier
