The faerie Magpie Windwitch, granddaughter of the West Wind, flies over the ocean with her small flock of crows. Ill-advised sailors all too often open bottles floating near their ships, and Magpie has vowed to recapture the devils released upon the world from their sea-borne containers. But there is one bottle in which a great menace was trapped by the ancient Djinn King, and when this bottle is opened, the evil of the Blackbringer threatens to engulf the world. Magpie has never faced anything even remotely as dangerous, and her quest to save the land soon involves dragons, a tattooed princeling, and Magpie's hero, the legendary Bellatrix.

    " I tried. I just couldn't do it. I love Laini Taylor's beautiful worlds but this one was just too dank, language too colloquial and I just couldn't get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yara | 2/14/2014

    " Though I wasn't thrilled that this book was about fairies, I gave it a try because Shannon Hale recommended it so highly. I liked the writing and the story and look forward to a sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia L | 2/13/2014

    " This book is for those who enjoy reading stories about faeries, magic, and talking birds. It has quite a few pages, which I like because it keeps me busy. There is mystery and a little bit of love in these pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erica | 2/13/2014

    " good story, not great writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Hiatt | 1/30/2014

    " This book is a really fun read and I can't wait for the sequel. Laini Taylor has created a world that we can very well imagine is right under our feet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy K | 1/28/2014

    " A delightful wonderful exciting read. The characters are unique and I loved getting to know them. Ms. Taylor has an excellent writing style and the story moves along with excitement and character development. I would recommend the book for both young and older. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 1/17/2014

    " I love fairies. It was difficult to find the sequel. I had to order it through Amazon. I guess that will be the end of the Fairies of Dreamdark! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 12/25/2013

    " Enjoyable, well-written, intense, but in the long run meaningless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 11/26/2013

    " Very fun fairy series for the major fantasy reader. Magpie is a loveable character who was easy to get behind. Grades 5+ "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hannah | 11/19/2013

    " Probably the weirdest book I've ever read but it was a good book! Magpie Windwhitch is a fairy who wants to catch devils. and rides on crows for transportation...just a little strange right?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 6/30/2013

    " It was amazing though confusing at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carina | 3/4/2013

    " This is one of those books I'll be reading to my kids. Great adventure story, lovable characters, and lots of moments of just silly good humor. Made me laugh a few times. Also dark and dangerous, very much like Harry Potter. Would recommend to anyone who loved those books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/25/2012

    " I liked this one as much as I liked the second one in the series. A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/28/2012

    " Utterly charming world of fairies at what could be the end of their times. Utter darkness has been released upon the world, and our plucky heroine and her madcap batch of crows guide us through a wonderful tale of courage, love conquering all, and the fantastic world of Dreamdark and realms beyond. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Williams | 7/21/2012

    " I really loved the old sort of fairy-tale quality to the writing in this book. The characters are interesting and distinct personalities. Davina Porter does a lovely job on the audiobook version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 6/4/2012

    " This is a fun ya fantasy series. The only thing I don't like is that the spoken language of this world seems a bit off. I don't know that it matches the setting, but after a while I became used to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh Ammon | 3/2/2012

    " I enjoyed this story. I wasn't sure what it would be like, but I really enjoyed this world with djinns and devils and faeries. I especially enjoyed Magpie's magic and her relationships with Talon, the crows, and the history of her people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/7/2011

    " I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!! I absolutely think that anyone will love this book. The mixture of the different kind of magics all "weaved" (pun) into this book. I feel that this book should be on everybody's bookshelf. It is that awesome. I will say no more, less I ruin about this. ? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bernt | 3/5/2011

    " I really, really, tried to finish this book....but I couldn't. Very juvenile and....soooo boring. I can maybe see a 6th grader enjoying it. "

    " I loved this book! Laini Taylor is an amazing writer! The whole badass faerie thing was an amazing idea to begin with and add in that they're irish just made this a fantastic book.
