Flashback November 2007

I’m flashing back to reviews from years past. Here is what I was reviewing in November 2007.

I can’t believe this, but . . . I reviewed exactly one book that month. I KNOW. How times have changed.

Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer by Laini Taylor. Illustrations by Jim Di Bartolo. 2007. From my review: “Magpie Windwitch is a faerie who likes adventure. She travels the world with her clan of crows, hunting for lost magics, trapping escaped devils. It’s a lot more rough and tumble than the lives of most faeries, but she is the granddaughter of the West Wind, after all. It’s adventure, and it’s exciting; and she thinks she is hunting just another devil. Except this one was trapped by one of the great Djinns, something unheard of. This devil is darkness and shadow; it dates back to before the legendary fighter Bellatrix, before the world began. Magpie is in over her head. Or is she?”

    The Faeries of Dreamdark books are still my most favorite of anything Laini has written! I hope someday she continues the series.

    Charlotte, there was only two, right? Maybe after she’s done her current series she’ll return to it!
