Ressenyes

This is the story of a man (Easton) and some companions who journey to a prior family estate. While there they learn of a folkloric creature called a moroi who takes takes your breathe away which can be fatal. But, it is real and not a myth. The tension builds to a final encounter between Easton and the beast. .I have read both of Kingfisher's books and my chief complaint is that they are too short. (the author's choice) but don't seep the series out in dribs and drabs.

Another fantastic book from T. Kingfisher! A House With Good Bones is a compelling page-turner, a horror story filled with roses and vultures and a family secret. The narrator, the protagonist, is funny and smart and wonderfully memorable. The writing is wry and well-crafted. I am absolutely devouring anything by Kingfisher that I can get my hands on.

Of the few I've read so far, Nettle & Bone is my favorite T. Kingfisher novel, a sort of feminist fairytale filled with magic. There's a goblin market, a dog of bone, a cloak of nettles, a witch and her chicken, a godmother and her chicken, all sorts of wonderfully inventive incidents, places, events, and characters.

Nettle & Bone is the story of Marra, the youngest daughter of a royal family. Her sister is married to a not-very-nice prince and Marra decides to do something about it. On the way to fulfilling her quest to save her sister, Marra travels to fascinating locales and acquires a small group of curious characters as co-conspirators.

Nettle & Bone is a fantastic novel and T. Kingfisher, recently discovered, has become a favorite writer.

Do you know what goes into hot dogs?

This is the second book in the Dragonbreath series that I've read and I absolutely love it. I'm really enjoying these imaginative, funny tales, part text, part picture book, part graphic novel. Danny the dragon and Wendell the iguana are unique protagonists, really fun characters. Dragonbreath: Curse Of The Were-Wiener is a very entertaining read. The book is aimed at young readers, so it was quickly devoured. Nonetheless, it is very well written and engaging. I intend to read all of these stories that I can get my hands on. Then read them again.… (més)
