Synopsis
Neryn thought she had lost everything and could trust no one, not even her mysterious companion, Flint.

But when she finds refuge at the rebel base of Shadowfell and discovers her canny gift as a Caller, she feels the first stirrings of hope.

Now she faces a perilous journey with the rebel Tali and the Good Folk, who shadow her steps. She must find the three Guardians who can teach her how to use her unwieldy gift – one that it is rumoured could amass a powerful army.

Can Neryn master her magical power to save Alban from King Keldec's stranglehold?

Or will she be too late? (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
Shadowfell was my first Juliet Marillier read ever, and I fell in love with her writing from the first page. It was fantasy done right, and I cannot wait for the sequel!

I just wish the covers for Marillier's books were more appealing. I was disappointed with the cover for Daughter of the Forest, and many of her other books deserve beautiful covers but unfortunately, the opposite happens. Shadowfell's cover was stunning, but the cover for Raven Flight is disappointing. I'm a bigger fan of the Australian cover, but that's just me being picky.


Let me know what you're waiting for this week! Leave a link to your WoW post in the comments below!

  5. You like the blueish cover better? I respectfully disagree. The other is haunting. Draws me in.

    1. Yeah, it's actually starting to grow on me. I guess I've always liked colorful covers?

  6. I need to start reading this series! I've loved all of Marillier's books I've read so far, but I'm a bit wary of this being marketed to a YA audience. I'm sure I'll still love it, though. And yes - I agree that the AU edition is much prettier. Oh well. It's the book's contents that matter, right?

    1. This is true! Though I always love a pretty cover! Though I know I should never judge a book by its cover, I can't help doing so....
