Don't turn away because this is a kids book. What an awesome story! I absolutely loved it and read it straight through.
Davina Porter is a MASTER at the narration. This is a perfect book to read with your kids AND for those into fantasy. And fans of D. Porter will most definitely not be disappointed.
What a wonderful surprise! And with Davina Porter's wonderful vocal character added - it is a joy.
I have read both Blackbringer and Silksinger and loved them so much that I bought the audiobooks. Davina Porter captures the spirit of Magpie Windwitch and the crows perfectly. Not only is this a wonderful story it is also superbly narrated.
The story was very original, but what made this listen sing was the narration by Davina Porter. Maybe I am just in love with Scottish accents, but she was able to give each character a personality and emotion. I can't say enough about this book. Loved it.
I've never read anything similar.
Brave, fierce and loving.
I loved the relationship between Magpie and her Crow Brothers and I thought the dialog was excellent.
She was perfect as every character. I loved her when she was playing one of the Crows.
Yes, but it took two.
This was my favorite fantasy world since I stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia.
Definitely. The story is meant for a younger audience but it was wonderful to listen to.
The characters and their personalities. They all had their quirks and the narrator did a wonderful job at bringing that out.
I am writing this review having read the second book in the series already so I can look back with that perspective in mind. I enjoyed this book, although I've already read Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and this was not as good. It did set up an interesting world of fairies, though, and the second book builds on that. So if you enjoyed this book, go ahead and get the next one, it's even better. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
I'm very particular in what captivates my attention in an audiobook. This telling of this story did it for me... Enrolling my attention so that I am lost in the story... I enjoyed the story so much and loved the narration especially. Davina Porter rates a ten for the creation of each character vocally.
Great book!! Saw some reviews that did not like it. Sorry, I disagree. I've been listening to recorded books for 15 years. This ranks toward the top. Can't wait to listen to the next one.
This tale beautifully describes a fantasy world of fairies and imps, good and evil.... and even some happily ever after. It even includes the late arrival of humanity and our blindness to the fantastic world. As usual, Davina Porter gives a great performance with pitch perfect accents and voices.
