    First I am a completely unobjective super fan of both ND Wilson and this book I did marry the boy whose words I loved and he did dedicate the book to me so in a way he bought these five stars But he's not on goodreads so I can say whatever I want right? I enjoyed it immensely especially everything to do with the faeren I'm most curious how it will strike fans of 100Cs since I really am too close to the story to see it in its own rightI just finished my first gripped laughing crying read of the ARC though I heard it read chapter by chapter as it was written and I'm reading it a second time to our son It makes a good read aloud since he writes to the earI couldn't settle on a favorite uote but a poem I can doBacon bacon's all I'm takin'Tap the ale pour out the wineYou bring ten hens what all are layin'And I my love will slice the swine Eli Fitzfaeren

    I read this in its various permutations in manuscript but this was my first post publication read through This is simply an outstanding book As the author's father I can be allowed my little biases But also as the author's father I must be recognized as being in possession of front row seats When it comes to his gift for writing Nate is going to make a big dent I can hardly wait to tell you what is happening with Notes from the Tilt a Whirl

    I almost never post reviews of subseuent titles in a series but this one was so much worse than the 1st I have to post my review In the second installment of 100 Cupboards Henry discovers that he is a 7th son with magical abilities which forms a dandelion mark on his hand Henry’s cousin Henrietta decides to adventure through the cupboards and her family follows her A battle of good verses evil ensues Though the idea of cupboards with hidden worlds is appealing as is the cute flying creature raggant sent to mysteriously find Henry there are many faults with this book First the writing is extremely choppy and confusing actions jump so much it is difficult to understand what is going on Second characters are uickly introduced and almost all end up being related with little motivation for their benevolent or malevolent actions Henry and Henrietta are annoying and unsympathetic main characters Other faults include a bizarre violenceindifference towards animals and a strange attitude of slavery Purchase where the first was extremely popular though this is a good example of the poor execution of an interesting idea

    The second in this trilogy was even better than the first That's a rare feat Usually book two in a trilogy id the weakest but this was excellent Wilson's imagination and sorry telling are at his peak I especially love how he writes villains They are hateable precisely because he writes evil as evil and not as something to be desired The villains make the heroes that much likable In all a wonderful story

    Oops I ought to have read this ten years ago Now I don't at all recall the first bookMaybe I'll try Wilson's other series instead

    ugh Brandon why did you take so long to read this?Regardless it's amazing I hadn't been reading much that I really liked when I started it and it just reminded me what it felt like to read a really fabulous book The descriptions bring not just the storyworld but also our real world to life in vibrant convulsing color Henry grows up into a little man but still has that big heart and I just love it Even Henrietta learns to shut up and think things through every once in a while There's just so much hope in this story So much light and innocence to fight against the evils of the storyworld and our real world tooI'll take the fire of the dandelion every time

    so i loved the first book 100 Cupboards because the concept of there being hidden cupboard doors in an attic behind which different worlds existed was completely fascinating and a great hook in the seuel the author splits the main family up into three different lines two characters each go into a world and everyone else tries to follow them and they all end up in different places and i was left feeling VERY confused with no clear sense of which world I was in from chapter to chapter WAY too many auxillary characters to keep straight or to care about when they got killed and WAYYYYY too much abstract magic going on in the character's head type of writing Very disappointing seuel Luckily there's no cliff hanger so maybe there won't be a third?

    So very good The first book lead into and set up this one and it went so far I loved it and couldn't believe the crazy imagination Wilson had in order to come up with this I can't wait to read the next one

    In all honesty I feel bad giving Dandelion Fire one star only because it's one of those books that I've wanted to read for years I was debating whether to give it two because even when I usually don't like a book I'll give it an extra star for one good thing that I liked but I just can't with this one It might just be me but reading this felt like dragging myself through gravel it was kind of a gross experience and I just wanted it to stop Though the characters were not all the same every single one was one dimensional dry and some sort of copy of another character Henry and Henrietta; Frank and Fat Frank; I was like is it that hard to come up with names? They in no way had the ability to push the story along and therefore made me indifferent to anything that happened to them The idea of this story is creative but I won't acknowledge it solely because it was not executed in a way that I liked It had elements that are worthy of a fantasy novel faeries new worlds wizards and magic but all of these things seemed like they were shoved into the book rather than written with as much precision as possible It was like this author was trying too hard to make a classic middle grade fantasy that would blow up on the New York Times Bestselling list like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson I haven't read Harry Potter but I know that a couple of characters in this book were almost direct copies of those from the series Henry for example had a burn mark that was a symbol of his heritage ahem Harry ahem and there was also some random faerie named Ron The main villain in this book reminded me of Snape but I wouldn't know enough to compare them Even though I'm running low on books that I own and I'm unable to go to the library #uarantined I'm sure I would find joy out of re reads than I would finishing this series
