    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 a [...]

    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 rec [...]

    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 more about family, fait [...]

    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 s [...]

    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 more 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 [...]

    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, [...]

    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 [...]

    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 more 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 more of the various gender switch symbolisms this time (the very obvious and the more 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 [...]

    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 more 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 pulle [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    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 a [...]

    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 [...]

    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 R [...]

    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 b [...]

    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 su [...]

    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 [...]

    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 prot [...]

    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 more 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 more books but I cannot help but feel that the end was very unsatisfactory for me. The [...]

    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 muc [...]
