    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

    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

    Blackbringer is well done fantasy fiction with faeries The storyline is intricate and inventive I never thought I'd read a book that was able to combine faerie lore with djinn lore but it was done very successfully here I liked the characters including Magpie the lead heroine and her murder of crows who she trave

    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 t

Y 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 BlackbringerAt 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.. Well lassies I waffled between a two and three star The potential is there but the book falls short on plot and character development Magpie Windwitch is a roaming faerie who fights devils that humans are releasing from bottles that had been sealed by fairies long ago When she finds a devil that threatens to devour the world she seeks the help of the Djinn King that sealed it thousands of years before In the process she discovers how she came to have strange powers that help heal a world that is slowly unraveling She must use those powers to defeat the most threatening devil yet Blackbringer and save her friends from an inky fate of living in an empty vacuum unraveled but not deadThe book sets up Magpie s powers and how they came to be The pace in the beginning as this is revealed is at times confusing and slow While there is plenty of action there isn t enough sub characters that interact with the protagonist The crows are the main ones and they love her and fuss over her but they don t really do or say much to talk her out of dangerous adventures I needed character traits than an Irish accent to become vested in their actions Maniac doesn t mean anything to me so when something awful happens to him I didn t have the emotional oh no that I should have had at that part of the story Bored I started to skim ahead until page 150 when Magpie meets the Djinn King Shortly after that Talon enters the plot along with another villain and their interactions create enough tension to pull me into the story At the heart of this plot is a creation story with the Djinn King being one of the creators He is awakened by Magpie and finds hope again in her belief that things can change Magpie is not a flawed character who grows throughout the story She s impulsive and courageous but she mainly is trying to survive one adventure after the other She and Talon disagree but it isn t much She and Poppy are the best of friends who work side by side to defeat evil but their dialogue has little page time I kept waiting for emotion and internal struggles but it is mostly external struggles There are many creation stories and some really well written ones such as The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner Rick Riordan uses creation myths in his stories While I loved the creativity of this book combining faerie and djinn it comes up a wee bit short as the crows would say If ye be like me and loves a good monster the author does a nice job creating a creepy Djinn King and Blackbringer The snag or character of Batch Hangnail seemed to have been a missed opportunity of working in the theme of low creatures being prejudiced by others who considered themselves better It is touched upon but I kept waiting for the author to go into depth and instead got a uick wrap up at the end For the most part the story follows the formulaic uest of a hero saving the world with unusual powers She is interested in a prince but the two are too busy saving the world to think much about their feelings for each other All ends happily but I wanted of an explanation about ueen Vesper s history with Batch The world and time shifts were confusing and abrupt in spots I thought Magpie was dreaming in the castle but she was out fighting the Blackbringer in reality I wasn t sure why she didn t have reinforcements and got a bit confused Then the action picked up and with a shoulder shrug I plowed onward The world building was sketchy here and there and clear in others I do think this author shows promise but the pacing and evolving plot lines were not on target for me If you like faeries djinn and a strong heroine with little internal struggles then you ll enjoy this one

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 recapt. Blackbringer is well done fantasy fiction with faeries The storyline is intricate and inventive I never thought I d read a book that was able to combine faerie lore with djinn lore but it was done very successfully here I liked the characters including Magpie the lead heroine and her murder of crows who she travels with They love her dearly and their love is reciprocated in spades And there is also Talon a Prince of a faerie warrior clan of Dreamdark who was born with underdeveloped wings and who has always desired flight Not only are there faeries djinn and talking crows but there are also hedge imps mostly benevolent animal type creatures and devils not benevolent somewhere between mischevious and annoying to downright malevolent The narrator Davina Porter beautifully illustrates the vitality inherent in the various characters in this novel Ms Taylor has crafted her own creation myth in this story and it was uite interesting In this novel the world was created through the dreaming of the djinn which forms a tapestry which includes everything that exists in this world However the tapestry is unravelling through the dark methods of one who has the form of utter darkness the Blackbringer Fortunately Magpie has a special ability that has kept the world tapestry together and the potential to save it and everyone within the tapestry from the BlackbringerI enjoyed listening to this novel on audiobook The creativity impressed me and I thought Ms Porter s narration was spot on Although it seemed a bit long towards the end of course I had some long days in which I was pretty exhausted so I can t blame that on the book alone it was a worthwhile experience Although this was written as a young adult novel I think older fantasy readers would enjoy it I am an admitted fan of YA literature but I can fairly say that this story has elements that would appeal to older readers as easily as younger ones I would recommend it to faerie fiction lovers and fantasy fans in general

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
