I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this introduction to the world of Silvery Earth. A world of magical races, immortals and ordinary humans. I loved the way that several stories were woven together into one as the characters came together. Each searching for their desitiny and place in the world. This world was wonderfully brought to life with good and evil and gray areas much like our own world. There was some mature content as we see sex used fo...more

I generally don't care for romantic fiction, but this was better than I'd expected. Stylistically, Ms. Tarn has a gentle but sweetly compelling voice. Her prose is clean and terse, with an air of bright, childlike optimism that rises up from the pages, creating scenes light, happy and open like a Maxfield Parrish painting.

But there are names. Lots and lot...more
Three and a half stars:

"The Books of the Immortals- Air" is the first in Tarn's Silvery Earth series and serves as a fairly stable introduction. The depth and breadth of the world is demonstrated, leaving the reader with any number of places to go and more stories to read. But "Air" still stands on its own as a complete tale. Despite a relatively large main cast of characters, Tarn manages not only to define each one, but to give everyone relatively equal screen-time. They each have a story of t...more
So, this was my first visit to the world of Silvery Earth, and I have to say, I enjoyed what I saw. In this world, magical creatures with mythical names (e.g. Sila, Fajrulo) live alongside the humans, and four Immortals – Earth, Air, Ether, Fire and Water champion the different races.

This book really wasn’t what I was expecting, but in a good way. I’m going to say here and now that there are certain points in the book where there are mature themes. There are points where characters within the b...more

A good fantasy book should have six things.
1) A diverse world with distinctly different cultures. Air has this. Silvery Earth has no only different magical races (each with their own customs and ideals(, but also distinct cultures of human occupants, as well. Like Tolkien and Middle Earth, Barbara Tarn has been working on Silvery Earth for many years through different stories and characters to create a world of great depth.
2) A large cast of diverse characters. Air also has this. From the dark,...more
I really enjoyed the book, but I had some trouble following the various threads at times. A character list would have helped. For anyone reading the series in order: this comes between the first and second Tales of Southern Kingdoms books.
