Blackbringer

May be in over her head How can a single faerie even with the help of her friends hope to defeat the impenetrable darkness of the Blackbringer?At a time when fantasy readers have an embarrassment of riches in choosing new worlds to fall in love with this first novel by a fresh original voice is sure to stand out Originally posted hereLaini Taylor is one of my favorite discoveries this year I fell in love with both Lips Touch and Daughter of Smoke and Bone when I got to read them Since the latter is getting a lot of attention from bloggers and readers alike I thought it would be a good idea to feature her lesser known Dreamdark novel during Retro FridayBlackbringer is the first book in the Dreamdark series Laini Taylor mentions in her website that she initially wanted to write five Dreamdark books but the publisher has decided not to continue with the series When I found out about that I rushed to the bookstore to get my own copies of both Blackbringer and Silksinger because I was afraid I would have a hard time looking for copies later on I had a difficult time getting into Blackbringer at first because it's different from the other Laini Taylor books that I've read but after a couple of chapters I was hooked and enjoyed reading the whole thing until the end It's written for younger audiences middle grade instead of young adult and is epic fantasy rather than urban fantasy Other faeries are content to live in their own world enclosed by protective spells that keep away both humans and devils But Magpie is different she gets her restless energy from her parents and her grandfather the West Wind She travels with her band of crows to fight against devils just like the champions in the golden days of Dreamdark Devils are evil creatures who devour and destroy everything they can get their hands on Magpie is one feisty character and I didn't have trouble liking her She's young for her race about a hundred years old but she's determined to do something for their dying world Even though I didn't think the writing in Blackbringer is as beautiful and lyrical as her YA novels I still think she created an enchanting world in her first Dreamdark novel and I look forward to seeing how she builds upon that Some things that I liked about her faeries they belong in different clans and have their own special skills eg one clan tends to plants and trees while another warrior clan is in charge of protecting Dreamdark and their wings vary too Some faeries have butterfly or moth wings while Magpie has dragonfly wings Another thing that I liked is how significant dreams are in this story dreams play important roles in the events that unfold in this novel Illustrations by the author's husband Jim di Bartolo also appear in various sections of the book Here are samples I love books with illustrations in them and I think these are beautiful While the book didn't end on a cliffhanger it's set up in such a way that the reader knows that there's to this world I'm excited for the seuel Silksinger especially since I've heard that it's even better than this one Recommended for those who enjoyed reading RJ Anderson's Knife or for fans of faerie books I'm hoping that because Daughter of Smoke and Bone is getting a lot of attention readers will pick up Laini Taylor's backlist

Characters Blackbringer

When the ancient evil of the Blackbringer rises to unmake the world only one determined faerie stands in its way However Magpie Windwitch granddaughter of the West Wind is not like other faeries While her kind live in seclusion deep in the forests of Dreamdark she's devoted her life to tracking down and recaptur I nearly didn't read this book because I was horribly afraid that it would be too much like my own small winged faery hunter with knife and crows book can you blame me? and I dreaded the possibility that Laini Taylor might have told the same story I had and betterHowever when my son broke his arm and had to spend the night in hospital last October I was dying for SOMETHING to read and when I walked into Chapters there it was my nemesis I knew Betsy Bird of Fuse #8 fame had loved it and the cover was certainly intriguing did I dare?Reader I dared And I spent the next half a day with my nose buried in Magpie's story and when it was over I was sorry but also very gladThis is NOT the same as my book glory hallelujah; it is a totally different story though I like to think that Magpie and Knife might be friends if they met though they'd have extremely different opinions about the trustworthiness of crows and humans It's a wholly different world that Laini Taylor's created and in it she's set a wonderful inventive story full of rich language engaging characters and high stakes action I can't wait for the seuel
