One thought on “Nocturne

  1. Katelyn

    I m always impressed when an author can jump into a familiar genre, in this case paranormal fantasy and despite the vast number of stories already out there within the genre, still manages to create their own unique spin L.D Harkrader did just that with Nocturne Harkrader gave readers magic, mystery, vampires and suspense all rolled up into one It was a great combination and while I will admit to not being sure quite what to expect with this book, I ended up really enjoying myself.Flannery Lane [...]

    Well, I don t have a whole lot to say about this book I wasn t crazy about it, and I didn t hate it, it was just kind of weird and forgettable It s certainly written for a younger crowd, but I feel like it will be too boring to hold the interest of a middle grader Flannery was a a sweet girl, who I rooted for, but she seemed kind of slow on the uptake The storyline was pretty obvious from the beginning, but she couldn t seem to figure anything out without it being spelled out for her in black an [...]

    Our heroine Flannery Lane has a mysterious past, she was left at the doorstep of the Wicker Street s most powerful wizard when she was a baby For the longest time her life was just in that box A lace dress worn when she was a baby and a letter that says she is better off with her own kind Anatole the wizard , immediately noticed that Flan is with magic I had the greatest hopes that Anatole can teach her how to be great like him when she grew older but Anatole has been restricting her of using it [...]

    In Nocturne, a young girl named Flannery Lane searches for information on her birth parents and the powerful magic she possesses.I liked the tone that Nocturne is written in It is not a traditional fantasy novel, but instead reads like a Grimms fairy tale or similar story This may not appeal to some, but as a lover of fairy tales, especially those with a dark side to them, I felt it made the story refreshing and gave a different view to the predictable vampire tale I also liked the character of [...]

    Flannery Lane is a 15 year old girl who possesses the power of great magic, not that her over protective Uncle Anatole will allow her to use it, though he is a powerful wizard himself That is, until her uncle is suddenly incapacitated by a curse Now Flan finds that she is the only one who can perform the magic necessary to ward off the vampire suspected of break ins and the disappearances of young girls in Wicker Street After all, what else could be responsible, given that a gorgeous new to town [...]

    This is a fantasy book that is full of a fabulous old world charm that I just loved Everyone in this world has small magic, but for larger protective magic they all come to Anatole s Charms and Book Shop, which is run by Flan our Heroine and Anatole her uncle.There was some really intriguing characters As a baby Flan was left on the doorstep of Anatole s She was named Flannery Lane after the printing on the back of the letter that was left with her The mystery of Flan s parentage and why she was [...]

    It took me a while to get to this book, but I am so glad I did There are many modernized versions of Vampire novels with magical elements mixed in them but I like that this one takes it back to a time when those things were true elements of people s lives They believed in them and feared them all the same Harkrader s novel was very well written and kept me interested from the start There were clues about upcoming events and as I read and kept notes in my reading journal I started to put things t [...]

    Here I was wishing for just a regular old vampire story and up turns Nocturne Nocturne leans towards high fantasy than vampire though Mostly it is about a world where magic is common and everyday and all the magic creatures of legend exist, werewolves, brownies, vampires and the like The vampires just are, they are not the point so that was refreshing for a change It was also refreshing to have a head strong, capable heroine who doesn t immediately fall in love and get all stupid Flannery is ve [...]

    This book seemed to drag by I don t like slow books so it was a challenge for me to get through this one I love the idea behind the book just wish there was going on.Flannery Lane was dropped off on Anatole s doorstep when she was just a baby Her mother thought it would be better if she raised by a wizard since she is one Things starting happening and people start disappearing and Flan has to rely on her magic to save the town This novel is than just wizards though it also has vampires and vam [...]

    This book has the two different themes mixed in together that I have not seen attempted before One of them as you can see from the synopsis, is magic This book is set in a late 1800s period When reading, I imagined cobble stone streets and men wearing top hats This world also has a town wizard, who helps the town people with things like protection spells and amulets Late one night a baby is left on his door step He takes her in and raises her as his niece Some years later a butcher comes to the [...]

    I did not, in the end love it but that s mostly, I feel due to meI was expecting, something which I feel as though I did not get s fairy tale rather than real life does that make sense Probably not.It was not for me but lots of people love this oneI especially thing, anyone looking for a lighter story, that boarders on the fairy tale aspect of vampirest will love it It s really well written, with a hint of that old world charm

    I was SO afraid this book was going to suck And then it didn t It was quite enjoyable I loved the feel of the magic and the world The characters at times seemed a wee bit too modern, but I can forgive that And if the plotline was thoroughly predictable, well, the familiar can be comfortable, and I enjoyed spending time with the characters and in the world.The last few pages seemed to hint at a sequel or that this was part of a series I can t find any reference to a follow up, though.

    As an adult reader this book was a bit hard to get into Great starter book for children though The story wasn t too memorable but I really believe that a reader of 10 would love to read it.
