Not bad, but disappointing for a Marillier novel. I want invested in the plot or the characters

I‘m always on the lookout for heroines that‘s remind me of Brienne of Tarth and Liobhan fits the bill. She‘s a warrior and a bard and wants nothing more than to join the warriors of Swan Island. While a trainee she gets chosen for a mission along with her brother and the aloof Dau. It was an awesome start to a series!

Chrissyreadit I had to look this up when I saw it in your best of list- and then I HAD to stack it😘 14mo
CoffeeK8 @Chrissyreadit you will not be disappointed! 💕 14mo

Here's my #bookspin options for April! Since there are mostly books I've been meaning to get to for ages, and now I have no library access, I'm hoping to manage a #doublespin and maybe even #triplespin
@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo! Great list!! 2y

THE HARP OF KINGS by one of my new favorite authors Juliet Marrilier
It is *chef's kiss* epic fantasy. Magical, fey, mysterious, dangerous fantasy.

I thought there would never be another author to equal Douglas Nicholas' Something Red series, but I found it in this haunting and lovely tale by Juliet Marillier. There's a little bit of everything here but mostly a quest featuring a feisty young female warrior, a prickly male counterpart, an otherworldly bard, an island of warriors, a pain-in-the-ass king-to-be, lots of faery folk, and druids. It's out in Sept - make your first Fall read!
