Shadowfell, the first in a new trilogy from Juliet Marillier, was a fascinating & satisfying read. Set in the medieval fantasy land of Alban, this dystopia follows Neryn as she tries to evade the king’s guards, called Enforcers. She’s especially dangerous to know/help, even more so than other fugitives, because she can see and converse with the fey (Red Cap, pookie, brollachan, urisk, naiad, etc.), a crime punishable by torture and death.
