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 recaptu. Really excellent fish and chips with wonderfully battered and melt in your mouth Atlantic cod malted vinegar and crisped chips That s my food analogy for Laini Taylor s Blackbringer Dreamdark 1 Ah nothing like excellent fish and chips As Abby told me at lunch today a book review is only successful when you get to the end and you re hungrier than when you started She might have been joking but I m pretending otherwise Taylor s faerie world and the language she uses to inhabit it transported me to a faraway place which reminded me of the British Isles I always enjoy Taylor s language and the story about a faerie who protects the world from devils is inventive I enjoyed this book however if you haven t read Laini Taylor s work before I d start with The Daughter of Bone and Smoke Series The language and inventiveness is present in this series and I feel the characters are developed than in Taylor s debut novel Blackbringer does establish a distinct world from that in Daughter of Smoke and Bone one in which you can sit back and enjoy your fish and chips Rating 375 bumped to 4

review Blackbringer

Ring devils escaped from their ancient bottles just as her hero the legendary Bellatrix did 25000 years ago With her faithful gang of crows she travels the world fighting where others would choose to flee But when a devil escapes from a bottle sealed by the ancient Djinn King himself the creator of the world sh. Dreamdark Blackbringer by Laini Taylor As a Youth Services staff member I have been whittling down the list of must reads recommended by both book review periodicals and fellow Juvenile and YA readers I have been mired in teen angst hurled through recycled adventures and generally worn out by stories that just don t wow This book Dreamdark was recommended to me by a staff member It sounded like another rehashing of fairy tale ingredients but because it had earned such praise I forged aheadA world was crafted through the unlikely perspective of a clan of crows and their adopted faery named Magpie Never have I read a book so freshly inspired with language so beautifully wrought including the author s own cleverly invented words Her use of a story s flow kept me reading not able to put it downTaylor s vision of her world is whole and three dimensional with colors and textures easily imagined The story is unexpected dark thrilling Characters are fully realized believable relatable and amusing including odd little creatures that endear or repulse and some truly frightening antagonists I would never limit this to a juvenile read Any book lover who enjoys a gorgeously articulated story will savor this oneThis book can be described in one word deliciousCaroline Poppendeck LibrarianHead of Youth ServicesSteele Memorial Library

    I was enchanted by Faeries of Dreamdark Blackbringer Laini Taylor's writing pulled me in and the characters and story wouldn't let me go The first bit of dialogue hooked me; I loved how the characters don't use some exalted High Language but instead speak in a wonderful rough and ready dialect Dialect is tough to pull off and one that's largely invented even so But Taylor does it brilliantly; enough to add ric
