Award-winning author Juliet Marillier's lavishly detailed * Blackthorn & Grim series continues as a mysterious creature holds an enchanted and imperiled ancient Ireland in thrall. Disillusioned healer Blackthorn and her companion, Grim, have settled in Dalriada to wait out the seven years of Blackthorn's bond to her fey mentor, hoping to avoid any dire challenges. But trouble has a way of seeking out Blackthorn and Grim. Lady Geileis, a noblewoman from the northern border, has asked for the prince of Dalriada's help in expelling a howling creature from an old tower on her land--one surrounded by an impenetrable hedge of thorns. Casting a blight over the entire district, and impossible to drive out by ordinary means, it threatens both the safety and the sanity of all who live nearby. With no ready solutions to offer, the prince consults Blackthorn and Grim. As Blackthorn and Grim begin to put the pieces of this puzzle together, it's apparent that a powerful adversary is working behind the scenes. Their quest is about to become a life and death struggle--a conflict in which even the closest of friends can find themselves on opposite sides. * Publishers Weekly

Having struck a bargain with a powerful fey nobleman, embittered healer Blackthorn and her ex-convict companion Grim must traverse the kingdom of Dalriada, aiding those in need. In Tower of Thorns, Lady Geiléis of Bann enlists them to lift a curse on her land, but the duo soon discovers that there's more to their assignment than their employer is letting on. Fans of lyrical, atmospheric fantasy based on Irish mythology will enjoy this the 2nd installment of the Blackthorn & Grim novels, after Dreamer's Pool.
