  1. After my ever-so-slightly-disappointed encounter with Son of the Shadows, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from Wolfskin. It can be a painful process to read the work of a beloved author with the knowledge that the novel in your hands is good, but it isn’t the outstanding masterpiece you were expecting, and I did my best to avoid another Marillier novel because of my fear of that very feeling. Even more disturbing, though, is the fact that virtually none of my friends have read Wolfskin and

Yes I KNOW he’s a psychopath but he was just so snarky and clever and cranky and he DID display glimmers of secret and heartfelt feelings at the end. I especially liked that trial scene where they were all just standi
