    Vampires are the newest big thing these days thanks to Twilight It is a horrible literary tragedy that Twilight could overshadow the Darkangel Trilogy Nowhere in this world can Twilight begin to compare I'll say here what I say to everyone who gets teary eyed over Twilight the Darkangel Trilogy will astound you It blows Twilight away While not about a traditional vampire the story centers around a very similar but far engaging creature The world that Pierce has created is breathtaking as creative and vivid as Tolkien's Middle Earth You haven’t met Mr “tall dark and handsome” until you meet Irrylath or the perfect believable epitome of a heroine until you witness Ariel’s transformation throughout the trilogy Fantasy fans everywhere you can find no better read Yes it was written in the ‘80s but this masterpiece should rightfully be on today’s pedestal that Twilight has acuired Dig it out of the archives in your library or the forgotten shelves of your used book stores buy it online it’s a gem well worth the search

    I read these book many many years ago as a pre teen and bits of it stayed with me all these years enough I was able to find the book through google I have to say that the very thing about the end of the final book that everyone here hates so much was actually what I loved about it Reminds me of the end of one of my absolute favorite books The Last Unicorn as well Some times we don't get exactly what we want That's what it means to have power responsibility and purpose If the first book turned you off because the end seemed too fairytale or co dependent I would stick with the next two books to see the full evolution of the tale This is not your Twilight love story but an actual hero story with a uniue bittersweet end

    I soooo enjoyed the strong female characters in this trilogy Strong but not invincible Not perfect But also not weak in a damsel in distress kind of way They are beset by human weakness for example the desire to love and to be loved but we see how this informs their choices and actions rather than wallowing in the weakness itself They learn They grow They make bad choices There are conseuencesA samplingAeriel Our Sacrificial Heroine She displays heroic virtue in many moments throughout the three books but we also get to see what this growth in virtue costs her At the end of the first book the image of her self sacrificing love is one that has stayed with me over many years And while the end left me somewhat dissatisfied as a teen I had a new appreciation for her choices this time around Kudos to the author for being willing to go thereEoduin and the wraiths How love transforms Aeriel is pressed into serving the wraiths the so called brides of the Darkangel in the first book when her companion Eoduin is kidnapped to be a bride There is absolutely nothing attractive about them but Aeriel learns how to love them and in so doing brings out their humanity And they never forget this kindnessErin The Faithful Friend A slave from a young age Aeriel's intervention to save her from one of the Darkangels earns her loyalty and friendship It's the absolute trust that they have in one another even when unable to explain fully that enables good to triumphMaruha Courage Maruha plays a relatively small part in the last book but in the face of others who would abandon Aeriel in her time of need she goes out of her way to help her despite not knowing who she is and what her intentions areRavenna Redeeming Mercy This Ancient One who helped create this world is the last one left at the time the story takes place She alone stayed behind unwillingly to leave until she knew that the world would not be destroyed She is willing to risk everything in order to reach out a hand in mercy to her estranged daughter And reaches out once when the plan must changeOriencor The Anti Hero Here we see what happens to the human heart when bitterness and resentment take over She could have been a great lady but she was unwilling for it to happen on anyone's terms but her own There are so many endings that could occur but her choices make the path clearThis is the first time I picked this trilogy up since I was a teenager and I started with the vague impression that I really liked it and a couple vivid memories of certain scenes After reading the it again I now know why I liked it so much then I would totally recommend these books to any person who loves a good fantasy read

    Above all this is a high fantasy adventure In all three books the heroine Aerial is traveling across an extremely fantastical landscape collecting magical objects that will help her accomplish her goal The bulk of the books is spent on world building and describing the landscape and strange creatures and characters Aerial comes across It is extremely descriptive and spends a lot of time using old fashioned English that is hard to understand Call me spoiled but I much prefer the way YA books are written today spending a large portion of the book in internal monologue exploring characters and their motives and expanding the story But if you love the strange new worlds of high fantasy this definitely has that in abundance I didnt feel that I really knew Aerial or Irrylath or what was really going on in the story And I did not find the relationship between them believable view spoilerAt the end of the first book after Aerial released Irrylath from the curse he was a completely different person He didnt even look the same I have trouble seeing how Aerial could love him before and after One or the other version of him but not both And I also had a problem with the fact that they were first cousins I know back in the day people used to marry their cousins and still do today in some countries I believe the heroine from Austen's Mansfield Park even married her cousin and that was only 200 years ago Also this series is set in a completely different world where that may be acceptable But the book was only written 30 years ago in America Why try to force us to accept something that she knows would be completely foreign and uncomfortable compared to our way of life? The fact that they were cousins served no purpose And not only was Aerial Irrylath's cousin so was the other woman who was in love with him his first cousins from the other side of his family The ending totally sucked It didnt have an HEA If I had known that ahead of time I probably wouldnt have read it But as I said I wasnt really attached to the characters too much so I'll get over it hide spoiler

    A favorite from junior high and high school but haven't read in a while Aeriel is in some ways a wonderful heroine because she doesn't set out to be one but rather grows into it As a personality though she is extremely morose and flat But luckily she is the only one All the other characters are uite vivid I especially like the heronI always remember the bird on a stick crack One of few silly moments in a fantasy that takes itself too seriously The alternate spellings also gets a little old But those are about the only knocks I have The story is engaging and uniue the world it takes place in is vivid and tangible I like the science fiction twist that develops throughout the trilogy Pierce seems to have an interest in socialogy because her books contain a variety of cultures uniue unto themselves and uite rich in customs hierarchy tradition etc It really makes the world she created tangible as we can all relate to a world of multiple uniue cultures Like most people I was disappointed with the ending but not enough so that the journey isn't worth revisiting

    It was 1992 when I read this and I was 12 This was the first non folklore vampire book I had gotten to read other than Bram Stoker's books Even so many years later I often find this book popping up into my thoughtsOf all the covers of the editions I've seen this edition is my favoriteI need to get a copy of this for my daughter as the main character is female and strong I have to say that this trilogy had a large impact on why I tend to write female characters as main charactersThe Pearl of the Soul of the World and the spinning stick with me most I love these motifs Vampires magic living on the moon and being set in a future time make it even amazing to me It opened many avenues of imagination to me

    Until I read Mieville this book topped my list of odd intricate full of random otherworldly details dark and disturbing in a lovely way favorite books Though Zelazny's Jack of Shadows gave it a good run for its money It remains one my favorite trilogieseven though the ending INFURIATED me Not kidding I HATED the ending So they must be some pretty darn good books if I can spend DAYS ranting with my sister on how unFAIR the ending wasand still count it in my list of favorite books


  9. Laura Laura says:

    I liked this trilogy I think because it reminded me less of vampires and of Beauty and the Beast or the Greco Roman myth of Cupid and Psyche especially the part where Cupid visits her every night to sleep with her but demands that she never light any lamps since he does not want her to know who he is until the time is rightAll reminders aside the whole series is creative with some interesting lands and enemies The whole series is a uick read This might be one of those series that I would like less as an adult than as a kid but I'm not sure


  10. Elijah Meeks Elijah Meeks says:

    It's good but it's not a vampire story so don't let the newly remarketed edition fool you It's a sci fifantasy hybrid set on the moon The trilogy like most trilogies gets a bit too arcane by the end but it's got a few good moments and some interesting concepts The lead character grows progressively less able to notice glaringly obvious mysteries by the end and the latest edition has far too many typos for a commercial release but it's fun
