    The Dark Crystal was my favorite childhood movie is still one of my favorite movies I'm so glad there has been a resurgence of interest Shadows is the first of JM Lee's preuels that welcomes you back to the world of ThraAt this time there were thousands of Gelflings across Thra divided into seven clans of separate cultures histories beliefs traditions and magics They are beautiful matriarchal societies in complete harm

    this was amazing it didn't need to be complex it didn't need to tell us something new it needed to tell the other half of the story to be said I'm just speechless and stunned on how perfect this wasEDITAre you still in mourning after reading that mess that was Return to Labyrinth? Looking to read something that actually

    Delightful preuel to the preuel of THE DARK CRYSTAL I do wonder at the fact that they didn't just use this for one of the episodes of the series which I haven't started yet This could easily have been a fine script It was well written and interesting and gave information about the different types of Gelfling and other creatures without feeling like an info dump

    I really enjoyed returning to the world of Thra I grew up watching 'The Dark Crystal' movie countless times and a few months ago watched first season of 'The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance' So whenever the author described a place or living thing I was able to very easily call to mind very clear images There were 2 or 3 times where the logic didn't fully flow Like the Gelflings not knowing what a Mystic was until suddenly they used the wo

The first series of original novels ever set in the world of  Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal   Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal Shadows of. See this review and like it on wwwbookbastionnet When single shines the triple sunWhat was sundered and undoneShall be whole the two made oneBy Gelfling hand or else by noneThe Dark Crystal has been a staple in my life since my early childhood I remember watching the original movie and Labyrinth with David Bowie and Jennifer Connolly over and over again on VHS with my siblings It got to the point where we can still uite lines from the movies to each other by heart So you can imagine how excited I ve been by the resurgence of this universe into popular culture over the last few yearsShadows of the Dark Crystal clearly lays a lot of the groundwork and foundation that we saw in the Netflix revival series Age of Resistance with a few critical differences While Rian was the star of the Netflix series and he also exists within this series and follows a similar storyline to the show this novel shifts the perspective to center around another set of characters on their own adventure within the world of ThraI thought I would miss Rian s perspective as the central figure in this story but I really came to love Naia as the main character Sister to Gurjin both ancillary characters that fans of the Netflix show might recall Naia is next in line to become Maudra of the Drenchen clan and as such bears a mantle of responsibility to her family and her people that sometimes threatens to overpower her When her brother Gurjin goes missing Naia is tasked with leaving her home for the first time in search of what happened to him She is driven to protect the people she cares about and I loved how she grows into her own strength over the course of the storyMissing entirely from this story is Deet who is another central figure in the Netflix show It s clear that the writers of the scripts for the show borrowed heavily from the character of Naia when they were writing Deet and while I did miss the Grotton fan favorite I also am a little bit bummed out that Naia didn t get her chance to properly shine in the show like she does hereIt s clear that JM Lee was a huge fan of the movie You can feel the love and respect for the original lore and story here but I also so appreciate all the creativity that Lee s voice brought to the Dark Crystal mythos as well Whereas the original film relies on atmosphere character and set design to convey much of the cultures of the Gelfling Skeksis and Mystics Lee expands on all that by adding new levels of complexity to the cultures and behaviors of the creatures of ThraThe writing is snappy and fast paced This is a book that one can easily breeze through in a weekend but that uick pace doesn t keep the prose from being wonderfully engaging Lee showcases the beauty of Thra as well as its dangers with his outstanding ability to describe the world its characters and their place within itThe Skeksis are also at their most formidable in this book With the introduction of possibly the coolest Skeksis character of all time SkekMal the Hunter Lee infuses the story with suspense and danger that definitely places this into the pageturner categoryAs for when the story is set like the Netflix series it s not entirely clear As fans of the movie know in the film Jen is the last of his kind In this series the Gelfling society is yet untouched by the Skeksis and their corruption of the crystal It s definitely a little depressing to consider what may happen to the characters over the course of the series which might make this book a bit of a challenge for some readers That being said I think the original Dark Crystal and this novel both shine because they are unafraid to peer upon darkness from time to time It raises the stakes and the story is all the memorable for it Follow me on Instagram bookbastion for shots of my books

The Dark Crystal is set years before the events of the classic film and follows the journey of a young Gelfling woman who leaves her se. I was recommended this book by my librarian due to the upcoming Netflix adaptation of the Dark Crystal Going into this short little fantasy book I knew practically nothing about it as I have not seen the original Dark Crystal film though I did know that this worked as a sort of preuel to the original It is certainly much of a middle grade series for sure due to the length of the novel and the sort of juvenile story telling style as well as having a fairly simplistic worldOne of the main things that I was fairly surprised about was that it read like traditional old school fantasyLoTR Earthsea etc rather than modern fantasyHarry Potter Cosmere etc I will say that the book is very description heavy with a seeming lack of much dialogue unless it was needed to propel the story forward and there was even a song of which I admit I skipped as I did not care about it all I do like traditional fantasy but I think that considering the fact that it is one aimed towards younger children and two that it was published very recently that due to its slow pace may throw off some younger readers I liked the writing style well enough and found it to be nice though I was not as engaged with the story or the characters as I would have liked toTo be honest I did not find myself liking any of the characters to the point where I was thoroughly engaged and rooting for them and was rather a bit indifferent to them finding them a bit shallow Not that they were badly written but rather just not having enough depth to them Another thing I will say is that the entire book almost acts like a really long prologue of exposition rather than being the first book in the series with the climax of this book doing nothing but setting for book two without the main issue of the world discovered until the very endA positive is actually how creative the world building is and it is always great to see some delightful to see some original world building set in an interesting world with fascinating creatures and races of different kinds That said I think that there may be some inconsistencies in the amount of time it takes to get from point a to b but that is nitpicking on my side nowI will be continuing with the rest of the series and for the most part I enjoyed this book but refrained from loving it hence the three star rating 610
