I hope this review might encourage a few more readers. Highly recommended to all fans of fantasy, regardless of age.
So when Magpie hears about Whisper and her task, she and her friend Talon go off looking for Whisper and the Djinn. And she can’t tell anyone what kind of ddeamdark cargo she’s carrying.
At the start, Whisper might seem like such a timid person but she has a backbone of steel when it comes to doing her duty as a guardian of Azazel. Sequels tend to lack some of the wonder and originality that strikes a reader on a first novel, but Taylor’s second installment on the Dreamdark series is magnificent and exquisite and even better than the first one. Lists with This Book. Loved this sequel to Blackbringer!
Taylor makes it work as well as she does is to be commended, praised, puzzled over, and commended yet again. Silksinger is right now at the top of my list of best books I’ve ever read and, once you read it, I’m sure it will be on yours too.
Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. I like that each Dreamdark novel focuses on one of the djinn and the fairies that have special connections to them. Thomas rated it really liked it Shelves: You know a book is a good book when you can’t get it out of your head and you suddenly wish yourself submerged into that world.
In Jen’s review, she says: Along with Magpie, Talon and the crows, we’re also introduced to new characters Whisper, Hirik and Dusk, as well as sundry other minor characters. No messing around here. The characters, despite being tiny fairies, have incredible depth and feel more real than flesh and bone humans in many other series. It’s a great story with stellar writing that will provide them with a break from the angsty romance currently so popular in young adult fiction.
I think what makes a book good, or even great, is the author’s willingness to let characters we love It’s absolutely, stunningly magical. As he and Whisper travel on caravans towards the city where the Djinn is to be installed on his throne, Hirik finds that he has to defend himself and his strange companion from all kinds of threats, from fairies and devils alike.
While fans of the first book certainly won’t want to miss SilksingerI would also recommend the Dreamdark books to people who aren’t ordinarily fans of fantasy. I read it after reading the first Fairies of Dreamdark book, Blackbringer, and the two books are complete stories in and of themselves, but you can tell that they are intended to be part of a larger story.
One faerie, the last of her clan, must fight to complete her sacred duty Whisper Silksinger is the last of the secret guardians of the Azazel, one of the powerful Djinn who dreamed the world into being. There’s Maggie, of course. I’m 36, and I loved every minute of it. On the other hand, you get many more tastes of the nasty ones as well.
Oct 18, Luann rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found the action-packed adventure story engaging right from the start. I was so excited to finish up this series as while it was hard to get into, It was suiper enjoyable once I figured out the world. I’m actually glad I didn’t read this series when it first came out, as much as I would have loved it then – even longer to wait! Jul 15, Debbie Barr rated it it was amazing.
REVIEW Dreamdark: Silksinger by Laini Taylor | Cybils Awards
I truly love these books. Cybils Newsletter Signup I’m interested in I got lost in the story of Magpie and Whisper. Silksinger might look like a hefty read compared to many other young adults reads out there barely making it to pages, but the hours and the pages go by without you noticing because is impossible not to loose one self in this alternate reality and magical realm Taylor sets for us. Whisper Silksinged is the last of her clan, sworn to protect the djinn Silksingee.
Blackbringer now published merely as Dreamdark: Or maybe it’s also because I’m more familiar with the details so it wasn’t as difficult as experiencing Dreamdark for the first time. Two legendary clans with special magical gifts, the Mothmage and the Silksingers, both long-thought extinct, dreamdak as Magpie and her followers search for the djinn Azazel in Nazneen.
She needs to find and wake the Djinn so that they will be able to keep the world from falling apart at the seams. I loved Whisper as well. Aug 02, Rachel rated it it was amazing Shelves: Faeries of Dreamdark 2.
One faerie, the last of her clan, must fight to complete her sacred duty Whisper Silksinger is the last of the secret guardians of the Azazel, one of the powerful Djinn who dreamed the world into being.
So, it took a while before the book got going. I really hope the series finds a new publisher and that we’ll eventually see the rest of the books. It’s the second in a series but it could work. If I picked it up without rereading its predecessor, would I be able to follow the action in Silksinger or would lose me right at the start? The language and slang, the landscape, the culture. Another exquisite read from an author who has become one of my favourites. It’s definitely ends on more of a To Be Continued note.
