The only thing Alini wasn’t always keen on was the omniscient point of view. Since then, the fairies have declined from once-great tahlor of magic and knowledge to smaller, more insular tribes. I knew Betsy Bird of Fuse 8 fame had loved it, and I nearly didn’t read this book because I was horribly afraid that it would be too much like my own small-winged-faery-hunter-with-knife-and-crows book can you blame me?! The main character, Magp I was enchanted by Faeries of Dreamdark: Is this book intended for kids?
And oh, what a world it is.
I grew up with Disney versions of the famous Grimm collection of fairytales. Since the latter is getting a lot of attention from bloggers and readers alike, I thought it would be a good idea to feature her lesser-known Dreamdark novel during Retro Friday.
I never thought I’d read a book that was able to combine faerie lore with djinn lore, but it was done very successfully here. I was blown away all over again. But Magpie is different, she gets her restless energy from her parents and her grandfather, the West Wind. All make for a reading experience that it just that – an experience.

Faeries of Dreamdark Series by Laini Taylor
It is written just as wonderfully as the Smoke and Bone series. She’s young for her race, about a hundred years old, but she’s determined to do something for their dying world.

They love her dearly and their love is reciprocated in spades. Other faeries are content to live in their own world, enclosed by protective spells that keep away both humans and devils.

Blackbringer itself is whimsical, funny, and if nothing else, a book that tayloor make you believe in the sort of happiness you can find at the bottom of your garden. She has discovered a new kind of evil however in the most recent devil she found.
His name is Blackbringer. As well as various short stories and novellas. I have to say I was worried about rereading this book.
I think I only made it to the tayor one before but I think now I’ll devour any and all of the rest of the series like the blackbringer ; Illustrations by the author’s husband, Jim di Bartolo, also appear in various sections of the book.
But when a devil escapes from a bottle sealed by the ancient Djinn King himself, the creator of the world, she may be in over her head. We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book.
