Half Wild still has all the glorious ingredients that made Half Bad such an enjoyable book but it felt much too brief – looking forward to reading the end of the trilogy

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical short story from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone universe, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this beautiful short story Laini Taylor's signature magic is used to recreate the epic treasure hunt hinted at in DOBAS.

I don't want to disclose any spoilers but beware to be transported back into the gothic glory of Prague for an evening full of unlikely events, including cakes and puppets!

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, hypnotic and extremely beautiful, 4 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fearsome Dreamer (Kindle Edition)
Fearsome Dreamer is a fresh and truly original novel, which defies simplistic genre labels (in the best possible way). Bringing to life an alternate world where England (Angle Tar) succumbed to the onslaught of the French Empire only to break off and become an isolated bastion against the technological super state, World.

The narrative focuses on two very different protagonists Vela Rue (from Angle Tar) and White (formerly of World). Despite the obvious chemistry between these two characters when they finally meet, their backgrounds, personalities and prejudices clash violently. Can they reconcile their differences and work together for the sake Angel Tar? You'll have to read it to find out.

What neither of them appreciate is that their shared mentor Frith, an enigmatic spy (my favourite character who is two parts ninja to one part Dumbledore) is concealing his true motive - there is a much greater threat to life than Rue and White know and its name is the Castle. And the Castle has teeth.

Think Philip Pullman meets Laini Taylor meets Stephen King and you're somewhere near Laure Eve and Fearsome Dreamer.

I can't wait to read the rest of this brilliant trilogy.
