    1. 7 10 If you are searching for a well written, engaging, completed epic fantasy series, you have come to the right place All three books of the Tamir trilogy are published a major factor in my decision to pick it up, since I don t like to wait years for each episode It s only three books, so the readers know beforehand they will not get saddled with ten never ending stories It is character driven, with an attention to detail that reminds me positively of Robin Hobb or J V Jones It has an interest [...]

    2. okay people i see what books y all add when i post em you re not fooling me and i know all your biases against fantasy but i gotta tell you, that lynn flewelling is pretty fucking giftede writes super detailed, complicated characters who have lots of internal and external strugglesese books focus on a girl who was turned into a boy for survival and how that survival happens and her gender dysphoria when she is turned back into a boy among other things.i couldn t stop readingm highly recommended [...]

    3. I loved this story I was swept away by the setting, the characters and the adventures of a young boy finding his way in a complex world and learning his true nature and purpose This is a beautifully written, dark and compelling fantasy that explores gender roles and identity.

    4. This plot hinges on a rather interesting idea What if a boy was really a girl, but didn t know it I don t mean didn t know it in the sense of the The Ill Made Mute, but truly didn t know it, and most people didn t know it.Flewelling starts to answer such questions in this book She also looks at how a land that once used women warriors slowly changes its view on them It s strange because there is not much action in the traditional sense of the word in the book It is about family, faith, cost, an [...]

    5. The Bone Doll s Twin is fantasy at it s finest It s creepy and thought provoking It handles gender issues in a way that isn t at all prurient My only complaint is that it ends quite abruptly It seems to me that the three volumes of this series should probably be one book Fortunately, I can download the second volume from Audible in about 20 minutes and won t have to wait to start it.The narration on this particular audiobook is excellent.

    6. The Bone Doll s TwinORThere Are Probably More Awkward Ways To Save a Kingdom But I Can t Think of Them NowThis is not a happy book, but for all the darkness, all the discomfort inherent in it, it s not a hard read It doesn t make the reader miserable, but rather intrigues and invites them further into this strange story.The book works for two reasons One, Flewelling has an excellent grip on how to write children and teens Tobin reacts to everything the way a child does He doesn t grasp how stran [...]

    7. Originally posted at FanLit fantasyliterature reviI finished listening to the audio version of The Bone Doll s Twin, the first in Lynn Flewelling s fantasy epic THE TAMIR TRIAD, around midnight a few days ago Instead of going to bed, like normal people might, I immediately downloaded book two, The Hidden Warrior, and listened for a couple hours That s how much I was involved in this story about a young girl who doesn t know she s magically hidden in the body of a boy.Tobin, who s really a girl, [...]

    8. This is set in the same world as Nightrunners, but five hundred years in the past It came about from a quick reference in Luck in the Shadows A Skalan sailer was explaining the tradition that, As long as a daughter of Thelatimos rules, Skala shall never be subjugated But of course there was a usurping uncle who isisted that the prophecy was misunderstood, that as long as the daughter of Thelatimos ruledd claimed the throne, then quietly killed all the girls in the royal family, except one, who w [...]

    9. This is a strangely difficult book for me to review The Good I love Ki and Tharin, and I think their characters are charming, likable, and whenever they are in a scene, I don t want the scene to end.I like the fact that the major horror in this book is done by the good people trying to save their country There s shades of gray that I find fascinating.Brother is intensely creepy.The author obviously put serious thought into the ramifications of the characters actions, both personally and with the [...]

    10. 3.5 stars A good start to what looks to be an above average fantasy trilogy I am a big fan of world building and the world that Ms Flewelling has created is well thought out, complex and believable Add to that an original twist to the standard coming of age warrior tale, quality writing and some good characterization and you have all the ingredients for a great story This one ends on somewhat of a cliff hanger so be ready to go right into the second installment Recommended

    11. Another really excellent, dignified fantasy series But other than the big 4 Martin, Hobb, Flewelling and de Lint , I haven t found great authors Well, yeah, Tolkien, but come on The movies are so much better kiss my ss, Tolkien die hards, I don t have time for the listing of every familly name of every Hobbit in the Shire

    12. Re read in audio I adored the story when it came out, a while ago, and wondered if I would still enjoy it as much a few years later I did.I didn t focus much on the gender theme the first time, and honestly, even if I got much of the various gender switch symbolisms this time the very obvious and the subtile ones it s not what caught my attention the most I was wrapped up in the powerful gothic ambiance ghosts, skeletons, guilt, sorrow, ambition and mysteries what s not to like as well as in t [...]

    13. I read Flewelling s other set of book but for one reason or another I found myself reluctant to read this trilogy I will admit that in a brief summary this book sounds cheesy, it is hard to imagine this done in a skillful way After getting pushed in to reading it with recommendations from than one person I found myself pulled into this unique story This is truly an original plot done in great taste and with definite skill The characters are believable and you find yourself being pulled into the [...]

    14. Okay, so I love fantasy when it is well done There s something so immensely satisfying about reading a well constructed world All that world is going to end and then a hero comes along see what I did thurr stuff is totally my thing, ya know So when the lovely Dominique I was stalking your book haul youtube clips said this was one of her favourite books, I pounced on it like a cat on string of yarn only not as graceful Anyway, so, this book, I had great expectations and I am pleased to announce t [...]

    15. An interesting premise and a compelling read I knew it would end with a cliffhanger, and it ended almost exactly the way I expected it to Normally that would be a sign of a predictable story, but that is not the case here Instead, Flewelling gives the reader an ending that both fulfills expectations and creates new ones I need to read a few other things before I can continue this series, but I will definitely read the rest of the trilogy.

    16. This was a pretty good book, but there were parts where I lost interest in the plot I definitely want to give Flewelling another chance because I liked her writing, and I think it was simply the plot of this book that did not keep me completely engaged.

    17. Although slow paced, this one is a beautifully written book It is also the best audiobook I ve listened to so far.

    18. Flewelling calls this book gothic fantasy and one can see where the genre applies A history to her wonderful Nightrunner series, I found The Bone Doll s Twin to be a bit creepy and somewhat disturbing at times It certainly is a darker turn from the main story of the Nightrunner series even her penchant for torturing physically and emotionally her favourite characters doesn t reach this level of skin crawling storytelling.The Bone Doll s Twin is a distinct piece of rising action There is no grand [...]

    19. The Tamir Trilogy is truly a proper trilogy that is, a single story, broken up into three volumes, as opposed to a series of self contained, interconnected books Book 1 The Bone Doll s Twin sets up the story and sends us on our way In an age of plague and war, a girl child is destined to take her place as the rightful Queen, to reunite the people, and to bring peace back to the land To thwart this prophecy and ensure his continued rule, the King carefully monitors all noble births and arranges t [...]

    20. When the writer George R R Martin and the actress Felicia Day are both recommending a fantasy series, it s not a bad idea to give it a try Actually, it s a wonderful idea The Bone Doll s Twin is a magnificent, captivating novel that will get you hooked from the first chapter The story moves smoothly, without being too slow or too rushed The characters feel very human, each of them has lots of potential, they all face different struggles, make different hard choices and it s just nice to be aroun [...]

    21. I promised a good review after every book I would read And up till now, It has remained a promise I don t know what s got into me lately, but my system seems to be deteriorating And I think the five star rating way is really coming in handy.You see, when a friend would ask about how was the book you hooked your nose into yesterday My answer would just be, oh it s a 3 or maybe nah that was a 2 See what I mean Now, I picked this book because of the blurb at the front cover by George RR Martin sayi [...]

    22. Its been over 5 years since I read this book and I m really surprised at how much of it stayed with me Although the MC Tobin is just a child throughout the book this isn t a YA book It is dark and sad at times A lot of books use the trope of disguising a girl as a boy but this book takes that theme and twists it cruelly With the killing of a newborn infant to save his twin sisters life it creates a very different dynamic to the book that I love.There are a lot of characters to love in this book [...]

    23. The Bone Doll s twin is a very good fantast with some very weird parts to it I enjoyed this book for its different plot points however the pace of the book is something that really never picks up during the first half of the book A very different book than most epic fantasies which deals with gender perception, The Bone Doll s Twin is a book that promises a very different read and fulfills that promise.

    24. Synopsis Sometimes the price of destiny is higher than anyone imagined.Dark Magic, Hidden DestinyFor three centuries a divine prophecy and a line of warrior queens protected Skala But the people grew complacent and Erius, a usurper king, claimed his young half sister s throne.Now plague and drought stalk the land, war with Skala s ancient rival Plenimar drains the country s lifeblood, and to be born female into the royal line has become a death sentence as the king fights to ensure the successio [...]

    25. I have enjoyed Lynn Flewelling s Nightrunner series, or at least those I ve read so far, and thought I d give her Tamir Triad series a shot Unless I m mistaken it appears to take place in the same world as Flewelling s Nightrunner series although it s been a while so I m not sure if it s the same place or time period It centers around a group of characters concerned with protecting an heir to a throne In this world there is a prophecy surrounding a particular kingdom that it will be protected so [...]

    26. I have a really hard time deciding the rating for this book.Not that I dislike it in any way, but for me it was quite uneven It started extremely captivating, haunting and was dark and a bit creepy in a way I prefer above anything else Tobin is a pretty odd main character but for me it only took a few chapters to completely love him I feel so protective about him that it s almost creepy And therefore I love Arkoniel, Iya, Lehl, Tharin and Ki with the same creepy feeling since they are as protect [...]

    27. I have to be honest When I first picked this book up I came close to putting it right back down It had a real rough start for me But because I had read really good reviews about it I decided to follow through and finish it I m glad that I did.The further I got into the book, the the story pulled me in There is so much of the story that I feel unfulfilled on but I think that is partly because there is books but I cannot help but feel that the end was very unsatisfactory for me There is much to [...]

    28. Although I don t agree with some of the precepts of these books, the stories are very good and well written They re traditional sword and sorcery with a fair portion of intrigue and mystery, and some feminism thrown in for good measure.A creepy beginning sets the stage for ghosts, hauntings and some creatively developed characters Flewelling s world scape is believeable and well crafted, with just enough originality to make the places and their people interesting in description, but not so much [...]
