Comments Dreamer's Pool

  • Jessica ❁ ➳ Silverbow ➳ ❁ Rabid Reads

    2/7/18 - ON SALE for $2.99:amzn/2fArrPiReviewed by: Rabid ReadsI know I mentioned that I'm a longtime fan of Juliet Marillier in the not too distant past: how I kept reading Shadowfell despite it's lackluster beginning, and how Raven Flight renewed my faith in her abilities.There are many reasons for that faith, but the simplest way to explain it is that in fantasy there is a not-quite-stock character that I'm going to call the Storyteller. Original, I know. This character is often a grandparent [...]

    Let me put it bluntly, okay? Sometimes we must face the facts, as unpleasant as they are : Nothing in Dreamer's Pool brought me enjoyment. Nothing. That's why, no matter how skilled Juliet Marillier might be with her words, I cannot rate this book anything else than 1 star. Yet it all started so promisingly. Indeed the first two chapters (out of 41) awoke my interest : Blackthorn and Grim, prisoners and driven with vengeance, touched me with their hopelessness and I couldn't wait to know what th [...]

    I've been trying to write a review for Dreamer's Pool for a long time now, but it's so hard because I never know exactly how to express my love for JM's stories and characters. Let it be known that she's my favorite author of all time, and she can do no wrong.That said, Dreamer's Pool is one of those freakishly unputdownable books, you know, when you can only make yourself stop reading when you desperately need food, a bathroom break, or when, sadly, it's so late that your eyes just give out. Th [...]

    Writing = BFantasy = B-Action = CPlot = CAngst/Drama = FBlackthorn and Grim = A+Oran and Flindais = F! FFFFFFFFF-FAILWhen I started this book, I thought, "Wow, this is pretty good. A 'straight' fantasy I'm actually going to finish - and like!" Blackthorn and Grim were stuck unfairly in a rank and nasty prison where they were abused and severely neglected. Blackthorn is approached by one of the fey named Conmael, and given a proposition (I never was sure why she was chosen, but whatever, it's fan [...]

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2014/10/27/b“Spellbinding” is the only word to describe Dreamer’s Pool. Reading it was like walking into a gorgeous, living fairy tale. I just loved this book, it’s probably one of the best I’ve read all year…and I’ve read A LOT of books this year.This is the first in an adult series by Juliet Marillier, called Blackthorn and Grim. Blackthorn is a woman we meet at the beginning of the novel, imprisoned for speaking out against a wicke [...]

  • Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽

    Dreamer's Pool, the first in the Blackthorn & Grim series by talented author Juliet Marillier, is a solid medieval magical fantasy/mystery. It was also, truthfully, a little too slow-paced for me; I got bored and did a fair amount of skimming in the last half. In fact, I was bored enough that I wrote half of this review two years ago, set it aside and never finished it. But I'm trying to remedy that now.A woman who (a little later) calls herself Blackthorn has been in the local despotic lord [...]

    Her name is ‘Blackthorn’, a skilled magical healer falsely imprisoned and chained to a wall. Nearby in another dank filthy dungeon is Grim, who watches her intently fearing she may soon be taken away and hung. Having barely survived the year, Blackthorn is ready to give testimony to the counsel in the morning which she believes will finally set her free. As the evening falls, one of the guards appears and taunts her with his knowledge that she will never face the counsel, but only a quick bl [...]

  • Chantal(Every Word A Doorway)

    About a year ago I read Juliet Marillier’s debut novel Daughter of the Forest and fell in love. The beauty of her writing, the complexity of the characters, the slow-burn romance and the atmosphere created was incredible and I knew immediately that I wanted to read other books by her. There is something unique about Marillier’s style, she has a very distinctive storyteller voice and the way she uses fairy tales, myths and lore in her stories is wonderful to read. She makes you feel like you [...]

  • Bradley

    This was a gentle Fantasy with all the traditional, read archetypal, side-characters, but it's real strength is in being a great character-driven novel.I consider Orlan and Flidais to be side characters in this story, with Blackthorn and Grim being the true gift from the author. With Blackthorn and Grim, this shouldn't be much of a stretch to see, despite Orlan's PoV time, because that guy was just too idealistic and good-natured and romantic a prince to make it as anything other than the subjec [...]

  • Nathan

    Fantasy Review BarnOnce upon a time Juliet Marillier wrote a fairy tale and it was wonderful. She didn’t revamp an old classic with a new twist. She didn’t write something like a fairy tale that twists all the tropes around. She didn’t even write a fantasy book with a fairy tale feel to it. She wrote an honest to goodness fairy tale; slightly dark, slightly magical, and completely wonderful.It starts with a bargain. Blackthorn, who had another name in another time under different circumsta [...]

He's the new leading man in my life. Sorry Terrible . Grim has stolen my heart. LOVE HIM.This was a wonderful story. Yes, I knew where it was going 100 pages in.

    I really love this author, but this particular book just didn't work for me. The whole thing was tedious, the writing meandered in circles, and I didn't really like any of the characters (especially the super naive lovesick prince). The mysterious fae guy who offered the deal was intriguing and I did like the Irish-type setting but otherwise nothing much held my interest and I was more irritated than entertained. I definitely won't be reading the sequels because this was just boring at best.

    After being unfairly imprisoned by a cruel lord, the healer/wise woman Blackthorn is freed by an enigmatic fey and charged with his rule: for seven years she may not seek revenge for the wrongs done to her and hers; instead she must take up residence in the kingdom of Dalriada and must provide aid to anyone who asks her for help.Although reluctant, Blackthorn does as she is bid, and sets out for Dalriada, accompanied by her former fellow prisoner, Grim, a giant of a man whose feelings for Blackt [...]

    From prison to wise woman…with a little help from Grim.I read Dreamer’s Pool in book form…as in paper. I haven’t read a book with paper in years and I admit, I tapped a few times before I remembered to turn the page. I also kept looking to the top of the page to check the time. Who’d have thought that the act of turning pages in a book would become unfamiliar? By halfway I’d stopped tapping luckily and was fully engrossed in this wonderful tale full of adventure, mystery, magic and r [...]

  • Sofia Teixeira

    Não há ninguém, mas mesmo ninguém, neste mundo como Juliet Marillier. Caindo no perigo de me tornar repetitiva a cada opinião que faço sobre esta escritora, não será exagerado afirmar que nunca li obras tão bem tecidas, com uma tão grande mestria e magia enquanto contadora de estórias. Existem momentos alegres, momentos de profunda tristeza, gargalhadas e lágrimas, um amor imenso que tem sempre um desespero em igual medida a acompanhar. O equilíbrio é a palavra-chave em todas estas [...]

    *** 4.25 ***A buddy read with my friends at MacHalo group, where fantasy is our life!Dreamer's Pool is a fairy-tale fantasy of the kind that seems familiar, but is new, and haunting, and beautifully written It draws you in, cocoons you with comfort and mystery, and keeps you there with the debt of characters and promises of a feast at the end of the road. This is the first Juliet Marillier book I have ever read and am here to declare that it is not going to be the last!!! She writes in a quiet, [...]

  • Magirosa

    Overall:Sigh. Big Sigh. I am disappointed in this book for the strangely harsh treatment of female sexuality. However, I must also say, that I love the Blackthorn and Grim characters and would love to read more of their emergence into this strange new life to which they have committed themselves. I also have such a longstanding respect for Ms. Marillier that I will chalk this one up to an unfortunate derailment.Elements I like: Friendship as a central theme: I love how Ms. Marillier introduces t [...]

  • Milda Page Runner

    Morrigan’s britches! This is quite a tale. And I’m still not sure how to classify it. Dark, dreamy and magical story that is part fairytale part mystery solving/investigation. Two unlikely partners pushed to work together by ever-meddling fey to unravel mysteries that seemed to have stepped straight from the myths. There is a prince looking for one true love, strange personality changes, a misbehaving dog, an ancient wood and a pool of dark magic, disappeared village girl and mysterious deat [...]

    November 3-5, 2015So I was just going to read the first part of this book to remember the characters and such, but the story just drew me in and I found myself reading it again and enjoying it very much!November 4-8, 2014I am so glad I splurged and bought this book the day it was released. It was truly a great book, and it ranks right up there with my two other favorite Marilliers - Heart's Blood and Daughter of the Forest. Blackthorn and Grim are some of the most flawed yet perfect characters I [...]

  • Angela

    The first Juliet Marillier book I read was Shadowfell, and I adored it. I adored that whole series. I've been anxious, ever since, to pick up another book/series by her for a long time.Finally, I was able to squeeze this start to a new fantasy series in. Dreamer's Pool is the first book in the Blackthorn and Grim series. And the two title characters, I absolutely adore.We first meet them both in a prison. Blackthorn thinks tomorrow is to be her "day in court," so to speak. Unfortunately, the pow [...]

  • Susana

    (review in English below)Até meio do livro estava a navegar neste lago sem grande entusiasmo. Mas a segunda metade acabou por compensar a primeira, fazendo-me querer continuar a ler até ao fim, embora eu já tivesse adivinhado a história toda.Esta história é contada por três pessoas diferentes: os protagonistas, Blackthorn e Grim, e o príncipe Oran, o principal responsável pela minha desilusão com este livro. Acho que teria preferido que a autora tivesse mantido a estrutura habitual, se [...]

  • Emma

    4.5 stars. My first Juliet Marillier and I picked a good one! I liked our world weary and flawed main characters Blackthorn and Grim. Loved the dreamy fairy tale quality to the story, it seemed timeless and magical. I will definitely read the next in this series. I am still not sure if the rest of Juliet Marillier's books will be for me, despite how much I loved this one. I often see the word 'romantic' used to describe her work and I'm quite picky about what romance I can tolerate! So if anyone [...]

  • Cathryn

    DNF at 40%. I fell asleep trying to read this. At 9:45. When I usually stay up until 11 or 12. I'm indifferent to this book. I don't care what happens next. Moving on.

  • Katie Michaels

    It seems I am a little late to the party on this introduction to the Blackthorn and Grim series… and I’m even further behind when you consider that this is my first book by Juliet Marillier. For the most part, I enjoyed it. I think that has a lot to do with the three empathetic characters who lead the story.Let’s start with Blackthorn. As the book begins, she has been in prison for a year –and not just the kind of prison where you miss good food and freedom. This is a pit, where she is a [...]

  • Nikki

    I should’ve got round to this ages ago, I know. I usually enjoy Juliet Marillier’s work, though I don’t always love it (I think Wolfskin and Foxmask didn’t work so well for me), and I read some very enthusiastic reviews about this one. There were one or two aspects that made me pause (a minor character is a victim of pretty serious abuse and rape) and a few people did note that there’s a fair amount of ‘slut-shaming’ in the story, i.e. shaming a female character for being at all in [...]
