Falls in love, something that he believed that was impossible and unnessessary, and have a second chance to make peace with all the shadows of his past. A good fantasy may certainly have a bit of romance in it but that isn’t where the story ends – the story ends with the adventure over, with the obstacles overcome, with peace on the horizon.

The Well of Shades (Bridei Chronicles, book 3) by Juliet Marillier

This is the ninth book by Juliet Marillier and, with the exception of the Sevenwaters Trilogy, it snades my favorite. For her, the hardest challenge of all will be learning to trust. At Bridei’s court in White Hill, disturbing news from the neighbouring kingdom of Circinn prompts the king to call his chieftains to council.


Meanwhile Bridei has his own problems – personal and public – to deal with at home as Derelei’s otherworldly skills grow and he seeks to replace the Light Isles royal captive with an uneasy truce with the Nameless God looming. Oh, I loved it.

For this delicate mission, Bridei once again turns to his trusted friend thw spymaster Faolan yay! They were beautiful to read, as all of Marillier’s novels are, and the history on which they are based is very interesting and the reason I kept reading thembut I didn’t find myself falling in love with the characters as I had in the Sevenwaters Trilogy.

Faolan returns back to the land of Gaels to not only confront his own past, but to honor a promise to The Well of Shades was a wonderful and strong finish to The Bridei Chronicles. I am honestly glad this series is over. That is, until Faolan was developed more in Book 2.
