    Move out of the way Twilight

    I like Twilight and all, but that serious doesn't hold a candle to this one. I loved the first book, and was afraid that I wouldn't like the second as much, something that happens all to often because authors change writing style or the plot thins. This is not the case for Silksinger. If anything, I liked the second better! Mrs. Taylor has a way with words that makes the story just jump off the page, making you feel as though the characters are real people and that their struggles are real things. There is no second guessing what was happening, no predicting what is going to happen. Also, unlike most teen authors or authors in general, Mrs. Taylor doesn't beat around the bush on serious matters like death and prejudice, nor does she over emphasis them. JUST AN EPIC BOOK ALL AROUND!

    The second DREAMDARK book was fantastic! I truly love this series.

    Whisper, a fairy, isn't just an ordinary fairy but the last of her clan. Her clan, the Silksingers, can weave magic carpets out of silk using their voices. They were also the guardians of the Djinn, Azazel.

    Now, Whisper is the last of their clan and is being chased by devils. The devils want to destroy her and her kettle with the Djinn in it. Hirik is a member of a hated clan which years ago allowed the dragon, Fade, to be killed. He wants to clear his clan's name and find Azazel and be his champion.

    Since Magpie Windwitch wants to find all of the Djinn, she is looking for Whisper and by accident finds Hirik. The three of them, plus Prince Talon and the crows, have an adventure to last a lifetime.

    I had forgotten how wonderful the first book, BLACKBRINGER, was to read. This story is exciting and wonderfully told. It has bloody battles, courageous slaves, dastardly villains, a hint of romance, powerful friendships, and captivating writing. The characters are easy to love and I even shed some tears.

    Thank you, Laini Taylor, for such a superb fantasy series.

    Another great reading!

    Laini Taylor's Silksinger is the second book of the Dreamdark Series. It was another great read! The story of the Silksinger is absorbing and thrilling. It was like I was there with them, an invisible character, cheering them on.

    The second book touches on great friendships and great betrayals - on top of another great adventure. It also shows the touching and deep connections between the protagonist, Magpie, and her feathered brethren.

    Can't wait for the third one, Laini!
