In the lands of Juliet Marillier, every story is meant to lead you on a strangely familiar journey conjured from the past. Her worlds, though imbibed with magic, once existed in a time and place in our very real history. She brings to life the myths and fairy tales that our ancestors once believed, either through retelling tales like Beauty and the Beast and East of the Sun and West of the Moon, or by taking inspiration from them. She melds elements of history and fantasy seamlessly, making you wonder: how much of history is fantasy, and how much of fantasy is really history? —The Audible Editors
