James plays the bagpipes, and he's extremely good at it. So good, in fact, that the special conservatory where he attends high school doesn't have an instructor good enough to teach him. But he didn't choose the Thornking-Ash School of Music to help his playing; he's there because of a girl. Because of course he is. And the two of them are mixed up with the Them, who chase teens with exceptional musical abilities. But James becomes more involved with the Fey than even he would have guessed at this new school, and becomes torn between his oldest friend/object of his unrequited interest, and his new and also very interesting friend, who happens to be a leanan sidhe. They're all in danger when they discover that the queen of Faerie is planning something big with the horned king of the dead, and James will have to make some tough decisions before it's all over.
I enjoyed this one a good deal, and it's a great follow-up to Lament. Stiefvater has fast become one of my favorites because she has that fabulous talent of blending the supernatural into the real world so effortlessly, and her love of myth and folklore shows, and I love her for that. ( )

I was very disappointed with this "sequel". I really enjoyed its predecessor "Lament" and was hoping for a similarly enchanting continuation of the story. However, what I got were unlikable characters, a plot that seemed to take ages to develop properly and, thus, a lot of boredom. This is a real pity as I truly think that the first book was very good (even though it occasionally bordered on the cheesy boyfriend-worship that we know from the "Twilight" books ;)). I'm sorry, Maggie, but this sequel just didn't cut it for me. ( )

The lead male character was pretty good. The dynamics between him and the lead female were good as well. The ending seemed very forced with all the revelations and the female character, who was the lead character in the first book of the series, was horrible. She was a ball of tears and bad decisions. It really sucks that nothing is shown of what happened with her at all. There could have been so much more story here. ( )

So, i would have had this read and reviewed a good... umm... three weeks earlier if my mom hadn't snatched it and read it herself.... ^_^
[She's reading Lament next, then Shiver:]
Anyway, i was excepting nothing less than awesomeness in this sequel to Lament, and nothing less than awesomeness is what i got!!
I am obviously a huge fan of all the Maggie Stiefvater has written thus far [and i enjoy spelling her last name. it gives me pleasure. Stievfater. Stiefvater. it's fun:] and i was excited when i realised that this book was about characters in the previous book [James & Deirdre:]
Now, i have this lovehate relationship with when authors write sequels in a new point of view but include the past main character. Love because i always find it awesome to get a different take on the character. Hate because... there's a different take on the character.
See, because you're seeing Deirdre from James' point of view, you're seeing a girl that's rather different than the one you got in your head from Lament.
Not that that's bad. I quite liked that in this context because it enhanced the story.
So, with that said, this one was in James & Nuala's point of view [Nuala being a faerie muse who imparts her inspiration on her chosen... and then proceeds to steal years of their lives away to keep herself alive. and yes. that is totally awesome.:]
What progresses is a story full of faerie brutality, music, ingenuity, wit, sarcasm, and over all, well, awesomeness. In the words of my mom, "These fairy's are me-e-a-an."
lol.
There was not a single thing i can find that was wrong with this. [y-a-a-a-a-y ^_^:] It was fresh, dark, romantic, poetic and all the things i've come to expect, look forward to, and overall enjoy in Maggie Stiefvater's books.
Wait.. no.... i miss Luke *sad face* I was kind of hoping he'd make a small appearance *sigh* that was the one little thing that depressed me.
At first i wasn't a huge fan of James. He irritated me at first [though... i think he was kind of supposed to...:] but after a few chapters he grew on me and i loved him more. I really liked all the chapters in Nuala's point of view [absolutely AMAZING name ^_^:] I don't think i've read many books where there are chapters in the fey's point of view. Though, her slight humanity made her less wild and unruly, but dangerous none the less.
The duel chapters & text messages from Dee scattered throughout the book really made this one spectacular. Truly it was. The way music is incorporated and used is phenomenal as well. I love it.
I now greatly look forward to Linger. ^_^ *greatly* look forward. ( )
