5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 27 Dec 2007
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
I have read many books about fairies this year but this was the best of the lot. Okay, while I was reading the others I thought the same thing, but this book was a stand out!

Magpie is a fairy who is a devil catcher. Humans have been letting them out to plague the world. She is the only one who has the ability to make the glyphs to rid the world of these foul beings. She finds that a new devil, one who is different and scarier than the rest, has been let out, as well.

She tracks him down in Dreamdark, the home of the fairies. His name is Blackbringer. He is going to destroy the whole world by unraveling the tapestry and swallowing the world into darkness and shadow. Through many adventures, Mags and her crows and a few other fairies wake up a Djinn, fight many frightful devils, and find out the true history of Dreamdark and the birth of Magpie.

I was fascinated with the mythology that has been invented for this book. The world was dreamed by the powerful Djinns and there used to be many creatures in this world that have been hunted out of existence by humans. BLACKBRINGER was a delightful read full of roller-coaster adventures and surprises. I sure hope Laini Taylor writes more about Magpie, the crows, Poppy, Talon, and the Magruwen.

In the interest of full disclosure, let me start out by saying that I know the author of this book, so I expected to like it. I did have reservations going in, however, being that the only fantasy books I own have the words Harry and Potter in them. I am a Jane Austen, , occasional chick lit, sometimes heavy english literature kind of girl.

That said, she had me at Hello. Or in this case 'So much depended on this tiny faerie whom dreams had at last made real'.This book is extraordinary. I was pulled into the world of Dreamdark from the beginning and could do nothing except finish reading it.

Magical is a good way to describe this book, both in content and execution. The world of Dreamdark that Laini has created is as rich and full as the language she uses to describe it. The story is a lavishly woven tapestry of color, characters, mythology, history, dreams and magic. The sense of brotherhood and of purpose of some, and the lack of it in others is what makes this story one worth finishing as quickly as possible, simply to find out what Magpie and her crows do and how she handles it.

If you are looking for a book that fires your imagination, then I highley recommend it. This book is for anyone of any age who is looking for an adventurous ride thorugh a new land with a female hero of the age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrumptious in every way! 27 Sep 2007
One of the reviewers on the US site says "If you read only one fantasy book this year, read this one". She's right. It's a treat - a thoroughly captivating, well-written, character-rich story that just draws you in and keeps you there right until the very last word. So few books satisfy in this way.

Don't be put off by the 9-12 age group that it's recommended for - it's a book for all age groups, from 9 to 99, and Laini Taylor deserves a huge audience.

I can't wait for Silksinger to be published!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Exciting New Find 8 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read Laini Taylor's 'Daughter of Smoke and Bone', which I enjoyed. Her sequel, 'Days of Blood and Starlight' got a little grim for me, but 'Blackbringer' brought all the imagination I loved in her work with strong emotional commitment and not too much overwhelming darkness. I would love stories more with these characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackbringer 7 Nov 2012
Magpie Windwitch is an adventurous fairy, who hunts, captures and imprisons devils in their ancient bottles. However, when an old evil named Blackbringer wants to unmake the world it is up to Magpie and her friends to save Dreamdark. This is a well written fantasy which is very descriptive and in-depth, Magpie is a strong and independent Fairy, and this book has lovely drawings so you can picture all the different characters. This book should be more well-known than it is and I recommend it to everyone who likes fantasy with a brilliant story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairies with oomph! 17 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fairy tale for grown-ups! (although I'm sure it's probably aimed at older kids). A great rip-roaring adventure tale that I couldn't put down. Laini Taylor creates such great, well-drawn characters that I find myself at the age of 43 wanting to believe in fairies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackbringer (Dreamdark) 9 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a good Fairy or Faerie book for ages having read Laini Taylor's books- Daughter of smoke and bone and days of blood and startlight. I then saw this book.

I was gripped the whole way thorough if you Wikipedia fairys they are meant to chase devils which is exactly what happens in this story. I love it from start to finish!!

The only reason I haven't read the second one is because it is a book and not available on kindle which I don't quite understand so I need to rent it from the library and haven't got round to it- I'm hoping they make a kindle version.
