    1. I have loved this series from the very beginning. It has a rather fun and original take on the fae with a slight steampunk Victorian feel that just makes it hard to resist. This is one of the few series that even though this is the last book, I wasn't nervous in the least to read it. I just knew I was going to be in for a grand adventure and that is exactly what Connolly delivered with. In fact, I think this is by far my favorite book of the trilogy.I loved Dorie. She isn't necessarily a fierce [...]


    2. Four stars: A fantastic, historical fantasy read with fey and other mythical creaturesDorie Rochart is now twenty three years old, a new college graduate, looking for a job in a male dominated world. Dorie has her heart set on field work for the Queen's Lab, but the high ranking men, refuse to give her a second glance despite her exceptional resume. The only job Dorie can procure at the lab is to be eye candy. Frustrated, Dorie taps into her fey side. The side of herself that she hid away eight [...]


    3. Silverblind is the third book in the Ironskin series. Since I received this book for review and haven't read the first two books, I still enjoyed it as a standalone. Through the book you're able to understand Dorie's history and her past which was very helpful. Dorie is half human/half fey but she's been trying to put her fey side away for years. Now that she's trying to get a job at Queen's Lab for field work to study wyverns and basilisks. The only problem is that noone wants to hire a woman s [...]


    4. Another brilliant story by the amazingly talented and wonderfully creative Tina Connolly. You may remember the protagonist, Dorie, as the stubborn young child we were first introduced to in the Ironskin debut. This story takes us forward 18 years and presents us with a more likable, mature version of the troublesome half-fey child we once knew.I found Dorie to be an admirable heroine and I immediately felt a connection to her character. I adored her both because of her unique abilities (a result [...]


    5. *Genre* Steampunk, Fantasy*Rating* 4*My Thoughts*Silverblind is the final installment in the Ironskin series. The story features Adora ‘Dorie’ Rochart who readers met as a 5 year old child in the book Ironskin. 18 years later, Dorie has graduated from college and is in search of her first job. Dorie wants to work as a field researcher for Queen’s Lab but because she is a woman and her fey beauty, she is shoved aside for her male compatriots.*Full Review Posted @ Gizmos Reviews* gizmosrevie [...]


    6. My love for these books knows no bounds. Dora is wonderful, she is a scientist studying wyverns and basilisks, how much better does it get? Connolly has created an amazing world and uses it to make moving points about the women's equality movement and racism. The romance is heart wrenching and the plot twists are subtle but mind blowing. Just read this book okay?


    7. 4 1/2 StarsDisclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.Silverblind is the third and final installment in the Ironskin series following heroine Adora ‘Dorie’ Rochart who readers met as a child in the first book Ironskin. Fast-forward 18 years, readers finds Dorie who just graduated from college in search of her first job. Dorie has her heart set on The Queen’s Lab as a field researcher, one of the most prestigious government jobs around and the po [...]


    8. **I read an ARC of Silverblind, expected publication is October 2014This third book in the series picks up more than a decade after the end of Copperhead with the adopted children of the heroines of the first two books.Dorie is the half-fey daughter/step-daughter of Edward and Jane Rochart from the first book Ironskin. She grew up with Tam Grimmsby, the orphaned child of the big bad in Copperhead who was raised by Helen and Rook (the heroes of Copperhead.)Only they're actually not speaking to ea [...]


    9. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewI had a good time with the previous volume, without reading the first one I confess. The author has created a truly rich and interesting world combining human and fantastic creatures. But while the two worlds are colliding, nothing is the same and many consequences are arriving from each side. Yet peace with the fey is finally installed, but that’s not counting the arrogance and the desire of growing power from men.Dorie is now a young woman. Mid-fey, she [...]


    10. More than a decade after the events of COPPERHEAD (EBR review), Jane and Edward's daughter Dorie has graduated from school and is ready to strike out on her own and find work. She figures her experience studying mythical beasts in the field coupled with her college degree will make her the perfect candidate to work for the Queen's Lab.Unfortunately, all her interviewers see is a beautiful young woman.Dorie lives in a place and era where women are protected from difficult and dangerous things lik [...]


    11. Thank you Tor for providing me with an ARC and then Finished copy of Silverblind for an honest review. I enjoyed every moment of getting to read Silverblind.Silverblind is my my absolute favorite in the Ironskin series. This book can be read as a standalone. I knew there would be fairies of course but there were dragons too. I loved every minute of this book. Dorie is a strong willed feisty girl living a a male dominant world. Dorie finds it frustrating that just because she is female she can no [...]


    12. I've enjoyed the other two books so I was thrilled to get the last book in the trilogy. In this book we are moved in time ahead to 18 years later and we follow Dorie the child we left in the other two books. She is full grown and trying to find her own way in this world. Wanting to become an explorer she finds herself in the midst of misogynist attitudes. She decides to use her fae powers to become a boy in order to get the job she seeks. While exploring she finds out more about the world and th [...]


    13. Giveaway win!This book can easily be read as a standalone. I loved this book so much! I haven't been reading a lot of fantasy lately and this was the perfect book to kickstart my entry back into the genre. It was fun and action packed, the plot was always moving forward with no boring moments whatsoever. The worldbuilding in this book was fantastic and I loved the author's take on the fey (as blue smoke). It was very interesting and really well done and thought out. We are only given the amount [...]


    14. I started to give Silverblind 4 stars. Then, I remembered I am so tired because I was reading until 4 am, hoping to find a 'happy' place to stop. Silverblind gets 5 stars; the writing is stellar (arh arh), the characters matter, and you cry when something happens to them. And I am warning you, bad things happen. I delayed reading Silverblind because this world seemed fated for an unhappy end. The characters seem more 'whole' than in Ironskin and Copperhead. Dorie, Jack, Stella, Tam, and the supp [...]


    15. This one seems to be a loose retelling of the Tam Lin story, and I'm so angry with myself for taking so long to figure it out. Dorie is a little hard to warm up to as a protagonist, she tends to be a little self righteous. The side characters are a joy, and I have a crazy love for Tam but it took me a while to love Dorie too but I got there. This book ramps up the senseless violence, a lot of what happens doesn't seem to be necessary to the plot and a character gets fridged. One thing I learned [...]


    16. Multiple worlds theory in an alternate world 1920s era Britain. The main character is a spitfire young woman who has chosen to dress like a man in order to do the work she loves, and she has some interesting side effects of a magical upbringing to contend with as well.



    17. At first I had a hard time with the jump in time, but overall I liked it. I truly liked the characters Dori and Tam.


    18. I picked up this book because the premise of a girl disguised as a boy is a favourite trope of mine. I'm tempted to go back and read the first two books in the loosely linked series, but I'm afraid that I won't like them as much as Silverblind. Dorie's struggles of facing discrimination in job interviews and worries about rent will resonate with contemporary readers, while the atmosphere of early industrial fantasy- England and the thrilling field work adventures of science in the old times are [...]


    19. I was a little worried, going in, that this series had already explored its world and would be retreading the same ground. In hindsight, that was stupid. Dorie makes a perfect protagonist, taking the series into new territory and examining new themes in an already delightfully detailed world.Highly recommended, both for fans of the Ironskin series and readers new to it, as the book stands perfectly well on its own. Loved it!



    20. Silverblind is the third book in what I believe is a trilogy. The first one, Ironskin, was a steampunky Jane Eyre-based novel which introduced us to the Fey. Book two, Copperhead, was based on Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and felt like it brought the narrative to a kind of close, so I wasn't sure what to expect from Silverblind. Would it perhaps be based on Wuthering Heights?First of all, no, I don't think it's based on anything - unless it's based on some classical work of which I [...]


    21. I absolutely have loved this series from the beginning, so when this showed up for review, I was thrilled! I couldn’t wait to get into it. And I was extra excited at the thought of reading about Dorie — pretty close to all grown up and ready to face the world on her own.I remember not liking Dorie much in Ironskin, at least not initially. But I loved the series, and was eager to see what a mature Dorie was going to be like. And I have to say that I thought she was fantastic! She had made the [...]


    22. Terrific book, although a little different in tone than the previous two in the trilogy. I liked Dorie - I vaguely remember her from Ironskin - but was left indifferent or cold to Stella and Jane, not to mention Tam. Honestly, I felt most strongly for the wyverns. (view spoiler)[ Much attention seemed to be paid to the genocide of the fey in the interests of clean energy, but was no one going to call a halt to the genocide of the wyverns for their eggs? The wyvern slaughter about 2/3 of way thro [...]


    23. (Description nicked from B&N.)“Dorie Rochart has been hiding her fey side for a long time. Now, finished with University, she plans to study magical creatures and plants in the wild, bringing long-forgotten cures to those in need. But when no one will hire a girl to fight basilisks, she releases her shape-changing fey powers—to disguise herself as a boy.While hunting for wyvern eggs, she saves a young scientist who’s about to get steamed by a silvertail—and finds her childhood friend [...]


    24. I thought this was another great book & a great end to the trilogy.This book is the tale of Dorie, now a grown woman, as she embarks into a career as a scientist. She finds the field not willing to hire a woman, so, calling on her fey side, she disguises herself as a boy to get a job. In this secret disguise, she ends up working with her beloved Tam, who she hasn't seen in the several years since she traded him to the fey. Together they look for wyverns and basilisks in the woods and try to [...]


    25. Tina Connolly gives us a third book in the world of Ironskin, and continues to follow the women of the Rochart family with Dorie, Jane Rochart’s stepdaughter. In Silverblind, Dorie follows in the tradition of her stepmother Jane and her aunt Helen, fighting for the underdog, struggling to determine the right course of action when circumstance seem to pit humans against the incorporeal fey. In this book, we get a few more magical critters, too, including wyverns and a basilisk.Adora Rochart, wh [...]


    26. Third in the series, featuring Dorie, the half-fey, half-human daughter of Mr. Rochart and Jane (protagonists of Ironskin. This book neatly wraps up the series, resolving the human/fey conflict that had driven the previous two books, and delivers a nicely understated romance between Dorie and her childhood friend Tam. So far, so good. But why, why, WHY, do editors not catch anachronisms anymore? If I'm reading the context of these novels correctly (the clothes; the references to trains, motorcar [...]


    27. I absolutely LOVED this book. I got it when I as sick and was unable to start reading it, but once I started reading it I put it down MAYBE 4 times, total. I won it in a giveaway, and I was so excited because it was the first one I won. It actually reminded me of a show my mom watches about the fey called Lost Girl, which made it interesting. I feel bad for Dorie because she had to pretend to be a boy to get a job, but I also found it funny when Tam didn't know who she was and she was all offend [...]


    28. I really enjoyed this series and Silverblind didn't disappoint. Actually this book was definitely my favorite of the Ironskin trilogy. Silverblind tells the story of Dorie and Tam when they are grown. I loved that we got to explore more of the very unique word that Tina Connolly created. I especially enjoyed learning more about the different magical creatures that inhabit the world. I love Woglet who is a baby wyvern who imprints on Dorie when she hatches him out. Loved the wyverns and basilisks [...]
