    1. Perhaps it s just me, but I find it rather disingenuous when the first book of a series is pretty much about a girl and a girl finding her strength and doing shit, and then the author is like, You know what I forgot A dude A dude having manpain That s what this book needs More dudes More manpain, as if Nico wasn t enough This doesn t happen often in literature for a lot of reasons shitty storytelling, conflict in marketing, who on earth wants the series to veer off like that in the second book b [...]



    2. There s something special about finding a book that s written for you For me It had to be seeing the Shamer Chronicles is written how I pen my books I m pretty sure the author wrote these books just for me But I ll be gracious You can read them too if you want From beginning to end, I was itching with delicious delight Everything, from the first person perspective, the mountain setting, the dialogue, even the vicious twists and turns of the plot, kept me hugging myself in delight I loved it And [...]


    3. This is the second book in the Shamer Chronicles series I read it as a child, but was amazed over how little I remembered I love how much Lene Kaaberb l not only told the story from Dinas point of viwe, but also from her brother Davids point of viwe This gave me the information on how it was for David to be the son of Melussina, and brother of Dina We also get to see how he handles it when his and his familiy s life gets turned up side down I also like that we get to follow him in his transforma [...]

    5. Now that Dina and her family no longer have a place to call home any, they ve settled down in a highlander clan, with people who are still loyal to the Raven s House Meanwhile Drakan and his dragonsoldiers are on the hunt for Shamer s and those he catches meet a fiery end.But although it s a dangerous time to make people feel ashamed, there is still a need for Shamer s in the world, and people come from afar to ask for Dina s mother, Melussina Tonerre s, services.Since Dina will one day have to [...]


    6. This is the second book in the series out of four It was translated from Danish by the author so the writing style is quite different than most of us are used to.Summary Dina, a young girl of 11, has a gift The shamer s gift allows her to look any human in the eyes and force them to remember all the things they are ashamed of Also she can use the shamer s voice which compels people to obey her for a short while About mid morning a call comes from a man who says his name is Ivain Lanclan He says [...]


    7. When I started on the first book of the quartet I had some trouble getting into the style as a friend of mine said, Northern Europe writing is difficult to swallow, not a spoon for every mouth That s why, though I had bought the second book, it took me an year to have a go at it But once I started, I couldn t stop I read through quickly and was even eager for The return appearance of known characters was great, as was the new and enthralling plot I m still missing the romance factor, as I like [...]


    8. I was about 12 or 13, when I started to read this series Until then I didn t like reading My opinian was that reading is boring and supid I was so damn naive about that But then I started first Shamer s book, mom bought to me first and second parts My life completely changed in one night because of those first two books I just couldn t get enought I almost ate this book and grab second one I rememeber, how angry was my mom that about 3 or 4am I was still reading and it was school night I mean, 1 [...]


    9. Don t Give Up On Dina Yet I absolutely loved book 1 in the series, The Shamer s Daughter , so I eagerly awaited the release of the second Unfortunately the book leaves much to be desired The addition of a new character, Rose, adds a bit of needed comic relief, but all in all, I felt that this book dragged on quite a bit When all is said and done, I feel that this is the weakest, and least memorable of the series, but it s still not a bad read Give it a try


    10. Note to self don t read the reviews comments before reading the book I went into this book with a negative attitude, but it was really quite a book Dina is such a brave little girl, you often forget that she is only 11 Her brother is a different story, but I still grew to like his parts too Although what happened to Dina was really sad, I really hope she hasn t lost her gift for good


    11. Summary Sequel to The Shamer s Daughter, this book continues the story of Dina, the daughter of the Shamer and who has inherited her mother s power as described in other reviews , but this time adds a second dimension This is not just Dina s story this time, it is now also the story of her brother Davin, who takes over the narrative regularly throughout the book The story focuses on Dina, who after a series of events is kidnapped and forced to use her Shamer powers for evil, while her friends an [...]


    12. The writing is definitely oriented toward a VERY young audience, with childlike sentence structure But this series has a solid plot, so far, and likeable characters that are very relatable You ll find no Mary Sues in the Shamer Chronicles If you re looking for a fairly simple but engaging children s fantasy series, this is the series for you




    13. An excellent follow up to the gripping first volume Dina goes through a rough trial, and is still a brilliant heroine.


    14. ne look into the Shamer s eyes and a person s darkest secrets are revealedDina has recently come into her uncomfortable powers as a Shamer, and now even her brother, Davin, no longer dares to meet her gaze.Yet in these dangerous times there are far worse things in store for the young Shamer, who is kidnapped and forced to use her gift as a weapon against innocent people Dina must get free Can her brother help her escape From what I have seen many seems to agree with me that this book was rather [...]


    15. It has been long enough for me to forget all the details of the first book, but there were gentle reminders in this, the second book of the series I eventually remembered who everyone was by name and was drawn back into the world where the phrase, Shame on you, actually had power In the first book, we learn how hard it would be if no one in the town could look you in the eye if you were a Shamer s daughter.In the second book, we see what it would be like to be the son of a Shamer with none of he [...]


    16. To be honest, I really did enjoy the book Dina was just as amazing and strong as she was in the first novel, and it was fun seeing her powers grow even if she was against it However, the story isn t just from her perspective it s also told from the perspective of her older brother, Davin, and he was the reason why I had to bump the book down to three stars To put it simply, I found him insanely annoying For a sixteen year old, he was whiny, impulsive, and pigheaded in all of the wrong ways Dina [...]


    17. The Shamer s Signet the exciting sequel to The Shamer s Daughter.I love the Shamer Chronicles and yes, I m 21 and yes, the books are targeted tweens age 10 13 But I love the series.The book takes off where The Shamer s Daughter left us, but Kaaberb l introduces us to something new the story is told both from Dina s point of view like The Shamer s Daughter , but also from her big brother, Davin s, point of view This gives the story a very interesting twist since Davin has his own problems and obs [...]


    18. Told in the perspectives of Dina and her brother Davin After escaping Drakan, Dina is continuing her apprenticeship with her mother as a Shamer When Dina and her mother are lured away from their new home in the Highlands by a man impersonating someone from a different clan, they learn that Drakan is trying to make the Highland clans turn on each other Meanwhile, Davin wants to learn how to fight so he can protect his family, which leads him to make rash stupid decisions that cost him and his fam [...]


    19. Dina has a secret nobody knows but her her secret is that she can look in peoples eyes and read their minds and see if they are telling the truth or if they are lying then she stays home by her self and she gets kidnapped and he takes her to his house and never feeds her or gives her nothing to drink Then one day her dad goes and looks for her at the police station and her calls her cell phone and it started to ring and the guy answered it and her dad was acting like one of the kidnappers friend [...]


    20. I disliked the first book, but I gave the second book a chance Maybe this book is so horribly written because it s been translated to English I am not sure The characters are wooden, with no real purpose, the girl gets kidnaped didn t we just have this plot point in the first book bad guys are bad, and their is the classic back stabber beautiful girl that the boy absolutely trusts just because she s pretty Ugh I won t be reading the third book The writing is not illuminating at all, and I don t [...]



    21. This was an ok book It didn t really WOW me but it was still decent Sometimes though I was grimacing at the stupidity of some of the characters especially Dina s brother When he went to go and challenge the person who attacked Dina and her mother I could barely keep reading But once I got past that part, it was a pretty alright book the rest of the way I actually loved the ending though it was somewhat of a cliffhanger It s the kind of ending that you can live with for a few months if you need t [...]


    22. Another exciting yet thoughtful entry in this excellent series, which I would like to see get attention I was pleased that the whole series just got a paperback reprint This installment picks up shortly after the last one left off Instead of being told entirely in Dina s voice, the narrative switches back and forth between her and her older brother Davin For the plot of this particular one, I thought that technique worked well, and both voices are compelling and well realized It s not particula [...]


    23. The Shamer s family has settled in the Highlands, but things are not peaceful for long They know that Drakan is pushing his rule into all the coastal city, in the most brutal ways possible.When Dina and Messulina are almost kidnapped, the Highland clans are set at each other Then Dina and a small boy fall into the hands of someone as bad in his own way as Drakan is in his And Dina learns, to her sorrow, that she cannot protect herself, and in the wrong hands, she can be used as a weapon.


    24. I chose the book because of the summary i read about it A shamer is a person who who can see a person s darkest secrets by looking into their eyes and Dina inherited this gift from her mother and is kidnapped by their lord and he is forcing her to use it against innocent people Dina s brother eventually finds her and they escape along with a few others I couldn t really find any good quotes i liked The author s writing style had a lot of imagery i really liked I would recommend this book to peop [...]


    25. i think i waited too long to start this book, but that i just didn t remember anything and so when i went back to the first book, i see that i hadn t even written a review for it and so i haven t an idea of what to expect i tried rereading the first book and it was hell i just, i thought i liked i don t understand maybe someday i ll come back to this, i actually want to i find myself thinking about it a lot but idk if that will be anytime soon i m nit desperate enough at the moment to find a goo [...]


    26. Even though I don t really like this series I need to know what happens so of course I had to read on Dina and her family are now living in the highlands and are safeor are they Dina gets involved in the horrible king s plot to destroy the world Instead of disgusting dragons this book has lots of child abuse and slave labor Not a fun tale in the slightest but it works for those who prefer darker fantasy stories.
