BOOK REVIEW: The Shadowfell Trilogy by Juliet Marillier
Most trilogies I find the first book is good, but the magic starts to wane in the subsequent volumes, however these books just continued to grow.
Still, right now our perspective of events is very narrow. But you, reader, would do well to judge him by his actions, for actions speak way louder than words.
