characters Ö PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Charles de Lint Promises to Keep Download Þ 0 Jilly Coppercorn of Newford is back With the help of a mentor and an anonymous benefactor the talented young artist has overcome her troubled past and is enrolled in art school The future is full of bright. This is a Jilly Coppercorn novel set earlier than her Newford stories that had previously appeared an origin story if you will The main plot point concerns choices that she must make and since we already know what she was up to in her later years it s a testament to de Lint s literary skill that he maintains a high level of interest and suspense in showing how she arrived at her decisions His work is almost always of the highest caliber and he s an unarguable cornerstone of modern fantasy

Another installment in the life of Jilly Coppercorn inhabitant of the wonderful imaginary city of Newford created by the author Charles de Lint Previous stories have clued us into Jilly s early life and generally how Jilly s life worked itself out at the end but this novella fills in a bit of the gap in the middle This tale originally was supposed to be a short story but went overlongI was a little less enchanted with this Newford story than I have been with the others simply because there seemed to be less of that whisper of magic that brings Newford alive and fills me with joy The only magic part of the story that seemed truly magical involved a character called Julianabut even that character was stripped down with all the explanatories to seem less magical that she was Now being a Charles de Lint story of course we have interesting characters and interactions but they seemed a bit rusheda little odd in a short story that stretched into a novella I am thinking that it really would have taken a novel length work to truly do justice to the subject but that perhaps the author did not desire to stretch it uite that far

Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyConfession time This is my first ever Charles de Lint book And yes I m suitably embarrassed that I run a blog called All Things Urban Fantasy and haven t read the Father of Urban Fantasy In my defense I discovered the genre through Buffy and it was uite a while before I even heard about Charles de Lint My ignorance excuse ran out a long time ago but I still shied away because once I understood exactly who de Lint was and what he means to this genre I was terribly afraid I wouldn t like his books and that would mean my UF love was really a sham My fear was 100% unfoundedAs I said PROMISES TO KEEP was my first visit to Newford but I never once felt like I d missed something Jilly Coppercorn the heart and soul of Newford according to her creator has been working hard at keeping her life together and putting a past that included physical and sexual abuse drugs and prostitution behind her De Lint weaves episodes from Jilly s past throughout the narrative at the exact moments I began to wonder He gave me every piece of the puzzle I needed precisely when I needed it to understand Jill and the journey that brought her to where she was Jilly is the perfect example of a character who you root for One of the most damaged characters I ve ever encountered yet I was completely engaged in her storyGlancing over de Lint s website I learned just how numerous and varied the creatures who populate Newford are but in PROMISES TO KEEP there really aren t any As one reviewer on Goodreads put it there seemed to be less of that whisper of magic that brings Newford alive and fills me with joy Instead it s the place that is the fantasy and I m not even talking about Newford which comes off as nearly completely mundane Mireya is the magical city in this book but in a very subtle way In fact I would describe it as lucky than magical For my first foray into Newford I found PROMISES TO KEEP to be a strong character driven tale with the barest hint of magic but with an easy going narrative style that forced the pages to fly and made me long for my next visit If you have yet to try a Charles de Lint book now s the time He s the father of urban fantasy for a reason Sexual ContentReferences to child molestation and prostitution

    Promises to Keep [E–pub/E–book] Charles de Lint ☆ 0 characters review Promises to Keep I still maintain that Charles de Lint is one of my favorite authors though I've been somewhat disappointed by his work in the past couple of years What has happened honestly is that I've grown to recognize some of the weaknesses in his writing a heavy handedness with exposition a certain kind of preachyness but his stories are still good stories at the core The issue here with Promises to Keep is that most of this stuff is already known if
