Promises to Keep Read & Download ñ 4 review Promises to Keep 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. 45 stars actuallyOriginal review posted at Layers of Thought An accessible and life affirming novella which takes the reader on a trip from the dark stages of addiction and abuse to a kind of whole ness set in a realistic and magical settingAbout Young Jilly Coppercorn our story s narrator has not had an easy life The victim of abuse of various kinds much of it at the hands of family members it has been a struggle to stay alive let alone clean and drug free Now off the drugs she is turning her life around Then a good friend one of her best turns up and invites her to a concert of sorts She is a bit worried as this friend is from her old life her addicted lifeAs she steps over doorway into the party she has an unsettling feeling akin to an elevator ride unbeknownst to her she enters a netherworld It is very much like our world but in many ways not as Jilly soon discovers There she must make a choice to stay in this other realm or to go back to her real life It s a decision that may help her find and reconcile the darker aspects of herself the parts she has no desire in acceptingThoughts This is a story set in and around Newford it is also a realistic fantasy series The 13th in the set it is a standalone which features Jilly one of the Newford series readers favorite characters I can understand why Jilly is wonderful She is strong and struggling and imperfect She isn t tall beautiful and waifish but artistic small and messy I like that a lot Promises to Keep is dark at times violent at others it examines many of the issues experienced by young people adults too when trying to get and remain clean as well as dealing with all sorts of toxic childhood experiences It is also light and life affirming with a believable perspective from the point of view of a female character which is impressive I liked that our main character was concerned with doing positive things like volunteering at a soup kitchen and a nursing home rather than fixing her hair or boyfriend dramaThis is my second Charles De Lint novel My first was Yarrow written in 1986 and read some time in the 90 s which I count as one of my all time favorites It was read at a time when I could not digest any fiction at all which tells you something In Promises to Keep I had damp eyes at times laughed too and said I just loved this book out loud than once Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a change from some of the kick bottom urban fantasy out there It is perfect for those looking for lots of realism in their fantasy but with a than a touch of the magical Perfect for artists musicians healers and most of all those healing themselves I give this story a 45 stars Perfect for someone like myself who has not read any of the Newford novels an excellent introduction I d say

When I first discovered Charles de Lint I read a TON of his books all at once and then when I signed up for Goodreads I went through and marked what I thought I had read and what I hadn t I put on my TBR pileSomewhere along the way I marked this one as read but left The Onion Girl and Widdershins on my TBR Since then I ve discovered that I HAD in fact read the two novels about Jilly And when I was going through my library to try to get a trade PB copy of all of de Lint s books I realized I probably hadn t read this book after allSo I bought a copy and and while reading it I d hit one passage or chapter that made me certain I d read it then I d hit another that made me eually certain I hadn tI think part of the problem is that de Lint isn t writing anything really new he s just fleshing out a part of Jilly s backstory that had already been heavily hinted at in previous works So even though it s a new to me book most of the content it contains isn t new to meSo 3 stars not because it isn t good but mostly because it s the same story we ve already been told multiple timesWhen I first heard that de Lint wasn t going to write any Newford books I was really disappointed because I haven t been as much of a fan of his newer ones set in the desert But now that I ve been returning to the series after a bit of time away from it I can see that perhaps he was in somewhat of a rut with his Newford books and I can respect him wanting a change of scene

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
