Darkborn by Matthew J Costello
If they thought it was dead, why are they still afraid? To believe in it is to sacrifice yourself to it. It could be anywhere And those who unleashed it years ago may pay for it with their lives and their souls for eternity. Product Details. Average Review. Write a Review. Related Searches.

An unlikely alliance blossoms View Product. We are introduced to a new character that plays a huge role in the lives of Telmaine and Floria, Magister Tammorn. Tam is an outcast even among his own kind; the mages. Telmaine is forced to protect Lord Vladimir after she exposed her abilities while trying to save his life. See Darkborn Tam is also friends with the new prince of the Lightborn, which in the end, helps save his life and that of his brother. Sinclair takes the reader on a wild ride as we watch two very strong women come under constant attack, and fight for what they believe in; family, friends, and loyalty to their ruler.
The characters are like pieces on a chess board; always moving.
Recommendation: Yes — Even though, at times, this book moves slowly, the action is consistent towards moving all the characters into conflict and resolution. The ending is exactly what it should be. An open dialogue to what I hope is an exciting conclusion to the storyline and a return of Balthasar and Ishmael who play absolutely no role in this installment.

The first book introduced us to the world of Darkborn and Lightborn, with almost all of the action and intrigue occurring on the Dark side. This second book introduces us to the major Lightborn--the rulers, the court and, most importantly, the mages. The Lightborn court is rocked by the assassination, by magic, of the ruler. His eldest son, Fejelis, takes the reigns of power, but is not secure, at all.
The Temple mages can't figure The action really ramps up in this 2nd vol of Sinclair's trilogy. The Temple mages can't figure out how his father was killed the lights failed, but why?? The rogue mages detect the taint of Shadowborn magic. But the Temple mages insist that Shadowborn are a myth. On the Darkborn side of the city, there are also intrigues afoot and Telmaine Hearne our heroine from the first book is caught up in them.
The book starts slow, as we are introduced to the Lightborn court and brought up to date with happenings of the Darkborn court. But the pace accelerates as the city falls into chaos. By the end of the book most of the main players from both books are all headed for the Borderlands, where the Shadowborn appear to be invading. I can't believe I'll have to wait another year to find out how it all ends. Jul 11, Shawn rated it liked it Shelves: at-library. Hoping to get some of my questions answered in book 2 of the regency-like fantasy trilogy based on people separated by the sunrise or sunset I forced myself to finish Lightborn.
Did I get my answers? No, not really. I may understand a little more about how much light or darkness can kill each race but that is about it. More characters were introduced in this volume of the series, while two major characters were completely absent!

The new characters include a Lightborn mage of considerable power and the Lightborn court. Floria played a part, but her character was not developed as I thought it would be considering she was on the cover of the book. There was a lot of Telmaine and Vladimer on the Darkborn side. The story felt disjointed, it kept flipping back and forth from Light to Dark and from one POV to the next. There were tons of plot holes. The sad part is I am still going to read book three because some part of me still likes this story despite how much it frustrates me.
And I keep hoping everything will come together in book three. Oct 14, E. Continues where "Darkborn" left off. The attacks on the Hearne family have ensnared them into a struggle that may destroy both the Lightborn and Darkborn society. Lady Telmaine has been reluctantly conscripted by Lord Vladimer Plantageter to aid him in his investigations while her husband and Ishmael travel to the Borders to look into the idea that the Shadowborn are uprising.

Still untrained in the powers that she has hidden all of her life, Telmaine becomes a wild card who could play a pivotal role as the leadership of both opposing factions changes in character but her powers may cause more damage than not.
Floria White Hand's life is also spiraling out of control as she becomes a pawn in the power struggle for rulership of the Lightborn. A great read but no resolution at the end and little or no mention of Telmaine's husband Balthasar or of her mentor and more, Ishmael. Jan 29, Nicole rated it it was amazing. It's so nice to read a fantasy that I just can't put down, and then for the sequel to be just as enjoyable as the first book of the series. Feb 21, Dion Cassidy rated it it was amazing.

This was a cannot-put-it-down type book. Jun 19, Deborah rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites , fantasy , series. Enjoyed this as much as the last book, though I did notice some typos. Overall my only issues with these books are formatting and editing issues.
Fiction Book Review: Darkborn by Alison Sinclair, Author . Roc $15 (p) ISBN
The story and pacing are tight and engaging. Jan 21, Marc rated it did not like it. It took me far too long to read Lightborn. I had to plod through it and I was really tempted to put it down several times. Now I enjoyed Darkborn. I liked the premise, the world, and Balthasar.
Online Darkborn (Darkborn Trilogy)
Now while the first two are the same, in Lightborn, we primarily follow Telmaine. At the end of Darkborn, we learned that she had powers. Following a character like that who was untrained and wanted to keep them secret, should have been an interesting journey. However, that's not what we got. What we got wa It took me far too long to read Lightborn. What we got was a lot of talking. Telmaine talked to the Master Spy as I like to call him, he talked to her, Telmaine spied on people who were talking, people talked about Telmaine, the Lightborn prince talked to his people, mages talked to each other, Floria talked to mages, and so on.
