Book Review: Nightingale by David Farland

 My take:
 Dave Farland's Nightingale is so amazing. I love the way he creates his characters and brings them to life. Bron was so fascinating and it felt like you took the journey of discovery with him as he learned deep secrets about who he is and what he can do. I love Olivia and how she finally shows Bron what it means to be loved by a mother and that she takes him under her wing to help him be the very best he can be.
I love how Bron evolves as a character along the time line of the book and becomes even more crush worthy as the book progresses. There is a lot of adventure and unexpected twists that keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.
I really enjoyed Nightingale. I can't wait for the next books in the series to come out so I can see what happens next. Hurry and get your copy and lose your self inside the pages of this fantastic book. Keep reading to hear more about Nightingale and its award winning author.

Some people sing at night to drive back the darkness. Others sing to summon it. . . .

Bron Jones was abandoned at birth. Thrown into foster care, he was rejected by one family after another, until he met Olivia, a gifted and devoted high-school teacher who recognized him for what he really was--what her people call a "nightingale."

But Bron isn't ready to learn the truth. There are secrets that have been hidden from mankind for hundreds of thousands of years, secrets that should remain hidden. Some things are too dangerous to know. Bron's secret may be the most dangerous of all.

In his remarkable young adult fantasy debut, David Farland shows why critics have called his work "compelling," "engrossing," "powerful," "profound," and "ultimately life-changing."
