After escaping her wrongful imprisonment, magical healer Blackthorn, living on the fringe of a mysterious forest with a former prison mate named Grim, is duty bound to assist anyone who asks for her help."In exchange for help escaping her long and wrongful imprisonment, embittered magical healer Blackthorn has vowed to set aside her bid for vengeance against the man who destroyed all that she once held dear. Followed by a former prison mate, a silent hulk of a man named Grim, she travels north to Dalriada. There she'll live on the fringe of a mysterious forest, duty bound for seven years to assist anyone who asks for her help. Oran, crown prince of Dalriada, has waited anxiously for the arrival of his future bride, Lady Flidais. He knows her only from a portrait and sweetly poetic correspondence that have convinced him Flidais is his destined true love. But Oran discovers letters can lie. For although his intended exactly resembles her portrait, her brutality upon arrival proves she is nothing like the sensitive woman of the letters. With the strategic marriage imminent, Oran sees no way out of his dilemma. Word has spread that Blackthorn possesses a remarkable gift for solving knotty problems, so the prince asks her for help. To save Oran from his treacherous nuptials, Blackthorn and Grim will need all their resources: courage, ingenuity, leaps of deduction, and more than a little magic" --… (mais)

I love Juliet Marillier's writing, so perhaps that's why I feel so uncertain about this book. It was a decent enough read, but it felt so lackluster in comparison to most of her other books. It's hard to get through a book when you already know how it's going to turn out, especially when the characters seem totally blind to it. (You all believe in the fey, but none of you are going to pay attention to the dog or the umpteen other clues? Come on now.) I could go on, but I dislike feeling this way when I had so anticipated this book. It had/has potential though, so I will still read the next book in the series when it comes out and hope for better results there. ( )

When a fae breaks her out of prison, bitter Blackthorn must delay revenge on the man who imprisoned her & use her healing skills to anyone who asks for help. Along with Grim, her former prison mate & protector, they must aid Prince Oren in this fantasy/mystery.

Didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. Blackthorn is a woman, a healer, who has come to the attention the lord of her region because he is a man who takes any woman he fancies and then casts them off (or worse, one fears) when he is done. Furious with her and anyone associated with her, he casts her in a foetid prison. There, her only ally is a fellow she thinks of as "Grim" (everyone else calls him bonehead) a huge man who can't sleep and exercises constantly.
Through a series of circumstances the two of them, aided by the fey, escape the prison, but a geas is laid on Blackthorn that she must assist everyone she meets who asks for help (or even obviously needs help) for seven years and that she must travel north to Dalriada, and take up residence in the cottage of the previous healer. She doesn't want anyone with her, but Grim shadows her, she is his lifeline. And remembering her geas she takes him on. One of the best parts of the book is watching the two of them begin to like and respect one another. The other story is about a young prince and the woman he is to marry -- to say anything about that story is to spoil, but it's nicely done. This is fantasy with almost no magic and that too is well done. There is some repetitiousness that becomes tedious, but other than that (and which I expect she was encouraged to do by the editor/agent/publishers, the writing is very good. **** ( )

Not crazy about one of the twists at the end, but otherwise I really enjoyed this. I've always had a hard time getting into JM's books, but not this trilogy. I went out of my way to read the next one RIGHT AWAY. ( )
