Editorial Reviews

Review

This is an astonishing book: an evocative re-imagination of Jane Eyre that concerns itself with beauty, love, and social upheaval. This lyrical and utterly marvelous debut is one of the standout books of the year. (RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick! on Ironskin)

Connolly has created a complex and well-drawn world here, and the story is indeed an original and imaginative take on the gothic-fiction tradition. An intriguing and ambitious fantasy tale. (Kirkus Reviews on Ironskin)

All the romance, mystery, and horror that a good gothic story needs. (Portland Monthly on Ironskin)

About the Author

TINA CONNOLLY lives with her family in Portland, Oregon, in a house that came with a dragon in the basement and blackberry vines in the attic. Her stories have appeared all over, including in Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. She is a frequent reader for Podcastle, and narrates the Parsec-winning flash fiction podcast Toasted Cake. In the summer she works as a face painter, which means a glitter-filled house is an occupational hazard.

Format: Kindle Edition
Silverblind is the third book in the Ironskin series. Since I received this book for review and haven't read the first two books, I still enjoyed it as a standalone. Through the book you're able to understand Dorie's history and her past which was very helpful.

Dorie is half human/half fey but she's been trying to put her fey side away for years. Now that she's trying to get a job at Queen's Lab for field work to study wyverns and basilisks. The only problem is that noone wants to hire a woman so it forces her to use her fey powers to change into a man, Dorian. While starting work for Queen's Lab, she discovers the horrible truth about why wyrens' eggs are so popular and why every single person wants them. Now that she has her cousin Tam on her side (who still doesn't know that she is his cousin), they will try to help ironskins, people who were the victims in Human vs. Fey battle that ended years ago.

A lot of reviews that I've read said that it is important that you read first two books. Well I didn't do that and think that I was still keeping up with the story. This is why I really liked it because you can still see how amazing Dorie is. She knows that because of her fey side, she has the stunning looks but she doesn't care about that. She doesn't want people to look at her and think she's only a subject. She wants to be out on the field to actually study and work. The book is a little on the slow pace but it is still entertaining. Plus, the author manages to create a perfect steampunk world with just elements of fey that do play a big role but also keep the reader in the reality.

Format: Hardcover
Another brilliant story by the amazingly talented and wonderfully creative Tina Connolly.

You may remember the protagonist, Dorie, as the stubborn young child we were first introduced to in the Ironskin debut. This story takes us forward 18 years and presents us with a more likable, mature version of the troublesome half-fey child we once knew.

I found Dorie to be an admirable heroine and I immediately felt a connection to her character. I adored her both because of her unique abilities (a result of her half-fey heritage) and her determination to help others, even when it meant placing herself at risk. She was selfless, strong-willed, and unwavering in her beliefs.

Dorie was also blessed with fey beauty, but instead of using this to her advantage when attempting to secure a job in a male-dominated career, she resents her perfect appearance. By disguising herself as a man she is able to get a job in the field collecting wyvern eggs and becomes privy to several of the Crown's secrets. But instead of being able to use her new position to do good as she had originally planned, she quickly realizes that those around her are only interested in money and power.

During her journey she finds herself teaming up with Tam, a cousin she betrayed many years ago. She's concerned about what his reaction may be to her so she maintains her Dorian disguise and he never realizes who the person really is that he is forming a friendship with.

I thought the development between Dorie and Tam's characters was interesting, but it really took a back seat to the rest of the story. There were just too many other things that held my attention so what happened between Dorie and Tam just didn't seem as important to me.

Format: Hardcover
Dorie Rochart is now twenty three years old, a new college graduate, looking for a job in a male dominated world. Dorie has her heart set on field work for the Queen's Lab, but the high ranking men, refuse to give her a second glance despite her exceptional resume. The only job Dorie can procure at the lab is to be eye candy. Frustrated, Dorie taps into her fey side. The side of herself that she hid away eight years ago. With her fey powers awake, Dorie decides to transform into a boy. As Dorian, she lands that job, but she soon finds that her dream job is not everything she hoped. Dorie is sent out to retrieve Wyvern eggs, a deadly task for almost anyone, but as part fey, it isn't so hard for Dorie. Once she has the eggs, Dorie must make a choice, does she turn the egg over to the lab, or does she do the right thing? Dorie finds herself grappling with some hefty choices, and her decisions could effect fey and mankind forever. Will she make the correct choice?

What I Liked:
*This is a series that I have enjoyed watching mature and grow. I can wholeheartedly say, that this is a trilogy that got better and better as it went along. I love that this trilogy is a blend of historical and fantasy. If you like books infused with fey with a historical setting, give this series a try. I have found that these books can be read out of order or as stand alones as each book is a complete story, but I urge you to read all three to get the full picture.
*Dorie,at twenty three, is far removed from the strange fairy girl we first met in Ironskin. Dorie is plucky, resourceful, intelligent and determined to do the right thing even if it means losing her rent money or endangering herself. I admired Dorie's courage and I liked that she made altruistic choices time and time again.
