Editorial Reviews


 "Nightingale has got superb worldbuilding, strong characters, and Dave's characteristic excellent prose.  It was a quick read, fast moving, very fun!"
--Brandon Sanderson, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of the Wheel of Time series, the Way of Kings series, and the Mistborn series
"Nightingale is thrilling ride of a novel with plenty of twists, action, and amazing characters.  I burned through it. Highly recommended!"
-- James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner series.
 "]The awesome ending was a huge payoff, and this series is just getting started. I blasted through Nightingale in two days, and whenever I wasn't reading it, I wanted to be reading it. I can't wait for the next book, Dream Assassin.  Highly recommended for teens and fans of Twilight and The Hunger Games!"
-- Paul Genesse, Author of the Bestselling Iron Dragon Series
 "The digital pages of Nightingale promise adventure, sacrifice, and an unexplored world. David Farland does not disappoint. . . .  An exciting new urban fantasy with vivid settings and a unique twist on the paranormal, Nightingale is unlike anything you've ever read/heard/seen.  Don't miss it."
-- The Islander News
David Farland provides a suspense-twisting young adult fantasy. (Five stars)-Harriet Klausner, SF-Revu

From the Author

I've written young adult fantasy for Star Wars and The Mummy, and I loved doing that, but this is my first dip into creating my own world for a young adult fantasy.  This is the first of four books in this series, and the response from readers so far has been overwhelming!  Thank you!

I can already tell this is the start of something great. Based on what he has written on the last page it appears he has three more books in mind for this series. I can't wait for more!

In this book we get to meet the hero, Bron Smith. David Farland fulfills this beautifully as I think this is one of the best introductions I've read to a character in a long time. Bron Smith is a troubled child due to his unfortunate luck in foster care, which makes him a hard and sometimes unloving character. Yet, we see many scenes of Bron acting unselfishly towards others and caring for those around him; you just can't help but care and root for him.

At the beginning Bron is sent to a new foster home in a new town, St. George, UT. Olivia, his new foster mom, seems to know more about who Bron really is more than he can imagine. Throughout the book is a discovery to find out who exactly Bron is and what he is capable of, as he appears to be far from ordinary and possessed of a rare power of possible good or destruction. Will he be able to control himself? Can he come to grips with who he really is?

The majority of this book takes place in the City I live in (something I didn't know when I picked this book up). This really fascinated me because David Farland nails the geography perfect, such as the driving directions from nearby cities to the Tuacahn High School and Amphitheater and how our Best Buy lies in proportion to the freeway. It was exciting to see everything be spot on. The only thing that drove me nuts was his description of the St. George Police Department primarily because I work there. I'll have to give him a pass for not knowing the layout of the inside or some of the procedures that occur there. I'm sure I'll be one of the few bothered by this.

My First Impressions: I was approached by a publicist from the new publishing company East India Press, and I was asked to take a look at this new book, Nightingale. It's an enhanced ebook edition that can be used on the Web or on iPad. I had NO idea what any of that meant until I spoke more with the publicist and started to read the novel. As all of my readers know, it's usually my husband's job to do the reviews for ebooks. I typically don't enjoy ebooks as much as I do print. It's just a matter of preference. I like the feeling of a book in my hands. But, this idea of an enhanced ebook novel sounded really clever, so I agreed to check it out.

My Review: Right from the start, there is immediate action and suspense. I was hooked right from the start. Sommer is a strong female character, which it one of the many reasons why I adored this novel. She knows how to defend herself and she doesn't need to be saved. Sommer has a great mystery to unravel in the very beginning, with the loss of her memory of a very important event that she cannot recall. She has a missing child, her child, who for some reason seems to be very important. Adel Todestall is the head of a man that had kept Sommer captive for many years, Lucius, a wicked being. In order for Sommer to save her sisters lives, she has to find the child. But for what reason? Well, that's the mystery.

Fast Forward quite a few years and we meet Bron, a young boy who is in foster care with Melvina. He's been bounced from home to home and doesn't quite know his place in the world. Pretty much anywhere would be better than living with Melvina, who uses Bron much like a slave and only keeps him around for the payments she receives.

I was fortunate to get an advanced copy of the hardcover of Nightingale, written by New York Times bestselling author David Farland. I was very impressed Farland's first YA fantasy novel, and it has a great opening chapter, and definitely hooked me right way. After the prologue--which features a young woman named Sommer--the story centers around a 16-year-old outcast boy, Bron Jones. He has never fit in, and is stuck living in a terrible foster home with grotesquely fat woman who uses him as slave labor to take care of her house and her brood of children.

Bron seems to have nothing going for him, except he is an incredibly handsome young man, but he can't make friends because of his ragged clothing and the stigma of being a "foster kid." He's quite cold and distant, which seems to be from the treatment he received in the foster care system, which moved him around a lot and never let anyone really bond with him. The truth is more complex, and is buried very deeply and Bron is fascinating character.

Everything changes when Bron ends up with a new foster mother, a music teacher named Olivia Hernandez, and we find out that Bron is not who he thought he was. This is the main issue in the book: "who," or more precisely, "what" is Bron? We find out that his birth mother, Sommer, who is featured in the prologue, gave him up when he was an infant, and he is not like everyone else . . . (minor spoiler) because he is not human. He is one of the masaak, a species similar to humans, but more evolved. Bron has strange and terrible powers that are discovered by his new foster mother, who is like him, one of the masaak, but has far different abilities than he does.
