In a nutshell....amazing! Like all her books, this one blew me away as well. The more I read from Laini Taylor, the more I'm convinced of her brilliance and genius. Silksinger was a great follow up to Blackbringer. It also left an open end for another sequel which I am eagerly anticipating. Loved being back with Magpie and the crows, and Talon, of course ;) I also greatly enjoyed the new characters. Whisper and Hirik were great characters. The story was great. Everything was great!!! I never have enough good things to say about Laini Taylor's novels, I hope everyone reads them and appreciates the creativity and originality of these books.
