  • Sadima lives in a world where magic has been banned, leaving poor villagers prey to fakes A magician stole her family s few valuables and left Sadima s mother to die But vestiges of magic are hidden in old rhymes and hearth tales and in people like Sadima, who conceals her silent communication with animals for fear of rejection.

    1. This is one of those books I read a while ago and kept promising myself I'd write the kind of review a book like this deserves. Well, here I am, trying my best.What can I say to make you take a chance on this under-read, under-appreciated book? Well, Skin Hunger gets a lot of comparisons with Harry Potter - both feature a school for young wizards, magic-abusing villains, etc. - but this series is set in a much darker world and tells a disturbing tale about the pains undergone for the sake of mag [...]

    2. Skin Hunger landed on my only-i-will-like shelf due to a number of reasons.First, there is an issue of two separate story lines that never come together in any significant way. They mingle and have common themes and characters, but they never merge. That, I assume, will happen at some future point in the trilogy.In an unidentified middle age-inspired fantasy land where magic is lost and those who call themselves magicians are fakers and charlatans, 17-year old farm girl Sadima joins a couple of [...]

    3. 3 1/2 starsThese days, the phrase “the study of magic” tends to evoke images of boarding schools, quirky teachers, magic potions, and cute mythical creatures more than anything else. However, when you take a look at our own anthropological record, “the study of magic” has more often been associated with a very different set of things: hours of meditation, fasting, ritualistic pain, brutal tests of endurance, isolation…and the list goes on. Kathleen Duey’s Skin Hunger seems to take in [...]

    4. Skin Hunger is like Harry Potter gone bad. Imagine Hogwarts instead of a gorgeous castle with moving stairs as an endless labyrinth of caves and tunnels in complete darkness. Add Voldemort as the headmaster and food being available only as a reward once the student has mastered the requested magic exercises. And if he fails, no one will help Kathleen Duey has created a very innovative work, with a fresh (and grim) take on the "magic academy" setting. I was quite impressed by how she deals with t [...]

    5. Reviewed by Natalie Tsang for TeensReadTooDespite what the cover may say, Kathleen Duey's SKIN HUNGER, first installment of her fantasy trilogy A RESURRECTION OF MAGIC, is not a novel. It's a third of a novel. Or maybe it's two novels. Maybe it's a sixth. But anyway you slice the cake, it's not enough. The book alternates chapters narrated by Sadima, a farm girl, and Hahp, a second born son of a cruel merchant. The catch is that they live several generations apart. One in a world that desperatel [...]

    6. There’s a line between horror novels and those that are dark, but it’s certainly a chalk line that can be blurred fairly easily, a line that Kathleen Duey dances upon in her A Resurrection of Magic series. I may never have picked this one up on my own, but thankfully my friend Catie had just finished reading it herself and offered it to me in the pile of books she’d brought for me to borrow. She handed it to me saying that it was kind of like Harry Potter…if at Hogwarts they tortured all [...]

    7. While the parallel stories are compelling, the world is fascinating, and the characters complex, I just didn't click with either of the main characters, and that took the story down a notch for me. Still, it's a strong book with a cliff-hanger of an ending and lots of unresolved bits and pieces that will definitely have me picking up the next installment. Although fantasy, the fantastic elements are almost beside the point, with the learning of magic centered more around almost-forgotten rhymes [...]

    8. I can't deny that this book has excellent, beautiful writing. Or suspense and cliffhangers at the end of each chapter that made me frantically think "must keep reading until the book is finished." However, I was distressed by all of the abuse.Abuse was a disturbing trend in this book. Within the first 5 pages there are three instances of abusive behavior. The rest of the novel doesn't get better. There are many instances of abusive behavior, most notably between Hahp's father and Hahp, between S [...]

    9. More like 3.5 starsI'm really conflicted about how to rate this book, and sat in front of the review space for at least 30 minutes thinking about how I wanted to write this. I can see what my friends were saying when they point out this wouldn't be a crowd pleaser, or an easy read, but it wasn't nearly as dark and depraved as I was expecting and hoping (and I don't care to think about what that means about my psyche, lol). It's actually two stories that barely connect, and I was equally intrigue [...]

    10. Skin Hunger is the first installment of a new magic-based trilogy called A Resurrection of Magic. The book alternates chapters between the stories of two separate protagonists- Sadima and Hahp. Sadima is a farm girl whose family is betrayed by a false magician during her birth. She grows up with a father who is completely broken inside and is unable to enjoy much even in her rural life. She has an unnatural connection with animals, and feels as though she can communicate with them through her th [...]

    11. Two tales are woven here. In the first, Sadima is raised in a time when magic is feared and distrusted, so she learns to hide her ability to speak with animals – but not before stories of her are heard in the city, and a young man (Franklin) travels the long distance to meet her. Several years later, after the death of her father, Sadima journeys to the city to find Franklin and is allowed to stay with him and his master, Somiss (a cruel, selfish, almost inhuman individual). They are just begi [...]

    12. Take any of those twee stories about wizarding school and then shove bleak, black despair down its throat. That's this book. It starts out sweet and cliched: a little farm girl can commune with animals, but her father hates magic; a little boy is about to enroll in wizard school. The chapters are short, without much to them. As the characters get older and the story grows more complex, the chapters cease being little cute snippets of their lives and become longer. With time, as more of each situ [...]

    13. This was an odd book.Skin Hunger is the story of two people, Sadima a young woman in search of love and acceptance for herself and the magical gift she holds secret, and Hahp, a teenage boy who has been sent to the wizard academy against his will. Interestingly, Sadima's story is told in third person and Hahp's story is told in first person, alternating by chapter. Furthermore, Sadima's story happens several generations before Hahp's.All of that I can live with. For me, the approach was unique a [...]

    14. 3.5 starsIt's a quality novel in terms of writing and plot (although the fantasy world seemed a little vague despite the middle age inspiration to it, but then again, it's not really a big issue.), but the lack of climax certainly dulled the pacing in the middle up to the last part, which is kinda disappointing after the fascinating beginning. I just feel that not much is achieved in terms of plot progression since the novel was so focused on the two protagonists' every day life. It was good for [...]

    15. This book got really good reviews which is why I decided to read it. But I am at a loss as to why since it really was not that good. It moves forward very slowly, if at all, and I didn't really develop a connection with any of the characters.The book starts by telling two separate stories that eventually merge (kind of). There is a common character to both stories but I don't think the two main characters ever meet (but I could be wrong since I zoned out a couple of times when I was listening to [...]

    16. I'm not going to rate this book because I just don't want to and I don't feel like rating anything. But this was awesome.I read this slowly. Or rather, erratically. Started this back in Feb, read a few chapters, left. Then picked it up after a few weeks, read it halfway through, abandoned. Read a few pages in the months in between and finally finished it today.Don't know what was going through my head when I felt it. But let's move on.The last hundred pages of this book are the most commendable, [...]

    17. Second read. I still haven't read the sequel even though I've owned it since 2009!But I'm not going to be fooled any longer: the third installment's been threatening to be out sincewhat? 2012? How could I have read the sequel when the third one is still in diapers, and has been for almost 4 years? IT'S 2016 AND IT STILL HAS SOME DUMMY DATE!They changed the release date about 10 times already; now it promises to be out by May this year.Gather around; hold hands, and hope they're not bullshitting [...]

    18. This book was dark and gritty, and parts of it were thoroughly frightening. This the type of book that appeals to both boys and girls because of the balance between romance (Sadima's story) and harsh survival (Hahp's story). I enjoyed Sadima's side of the story a little more, maybe because I don't have the stomach to visualize Hahp's experience in the wizard academy. I thought both Sadima and Hahp were compelling narrators, although their stories confused me a bit at first. Halfway through the b [...]

    19. This is a raw, harsh story and yet there was just enough hope for me to keep reading. I disliked the back-and-forth POV. I wish the author had chosen one or the other, though the shift between third- and first-person may be to underscore past and present. It wasn't too distracting once I got into the book. (view spoiler)[I also disliked the cliffhanger ending. I think a book should be able to stand on its own, but that's more of a personal preference. (hide spoiler)] What I liked about the book: [...]

    20. Liebes Skin Hunger,ich will ehrlich mit dir sein: nach den ersten paar Seiten dachte ich das wird nichts mit uns. Ich hatte nicht so richtig Lust und deine verquere Erzählweise hat mich verwirrt. Du hast mir abwechselnd zwei Handlungsstränge geschildert und ich habe einfach nicht verstanden, in welchem Zusammenhang die zueinander stehen. Ob sie zur gleichen Zeit spielen oder dieselben Protagonisten beinhalten. Außerdem haben die Namen mich verwirrt – Hahp, sollte das ein Junge oder ein Mäd [...]

    21. Sadima lives in a world where magic has been banned, leaving poor villagers prey to fakes and charlatans. A "magician" stole her family's few valuables and left Sadima's mother to die on the day Sadima was born. But vestiges of magic are hidden in old rhymes and hearth tales and in people like Sadima, who conceals her silent communication with animals for fear of rejection and ridicule. When rumors of her gift reach Somiss, a young nobleman obsessed with restoring magic, he sends Franklin, his l [...]

    22. I've got to admit, when I first picked up this book, it was because I got interested in the idea that one part of it was about a girl who could understand and communicate with animals. In a way, it was part of my thoughts about researching shapeshifters for my own benefit, but when I began reading, I realized the book wasn't focused on this otherwise tiny aspect; it was only the smallest detail that led to this great, huge concoction of the horrible and yet intriguing stories that melded almost [...]

    23. DO NOT READ THIS BOOKT.For those of you who don't know, I have a rule that I neither buy, check out, borrow or otherwise read books whose sequels have not been published. I just get too darn impatient for the continuation of the series.Well, I did not realize that Skin Hunger is a trilogy. Yes, it says so right on the book. Yes, I really can read. But I didn't. Big mistake.Skin Hunger tells two stories, alternating chapter to chapter between the two. The first is the 3rd-person narrative of Sadi [...]

    24. Original post at The Little Bookworm refers to audioSadima lives in a world where magic is outlawed and the country is ruled by a king. But she has a magic all her own, she can hear animals talk. One day she meets Franklin who works for a young nobleman and who invites her to the city. After the death of her father, she goes and finds that they are working on finding the lost magic.Centuries later, Hahp lives in a world where magicians are revered. He has no particular magic skill but as the sec [...]

    25. Interesting book with two alternating stories that at first appear unrelated, but then start to be connected to each other. One story is about a girl, Sadima, whose mother dies when she is born. She is raised by her father and older brother on a farm, very poor and isolated from the world. Eventually she moves out to the city, to find a helpful young man she met only once, and try to make a living working as a maid for him and his master. Meanwhile, you read about a young boy, Hahp, who is being [...]

    26. Umople (besides me) seem to really love this one, but I must say I don't really understand why. It felt really, really slow to me, and the way Duey alternates story lines made it hard for me to get engrossed in either one. I found myself marginally more interested in Sadima's parts than in Hahp's, but I never quite connected with either of them. People also talk about how horrific these kids' circumstances are, butmehow I never really FELT the horror of it. The emotional response was just not th [...]

    27. Skin Hunger is dark young adult fantasy, with the most bloodcurdling school for wizards imaginable. Two separate storylines are told in alternating chapters, one following Sadima, a farm girl who can hear the thoughts of animals, and the other following Hahp, a boy who has been sold to the wizard school. The stories never meet up, but slowly some connections between characters are vaguely established. This book ends on a cliffhanger, and immediately picks up in Sacred Scars, the sequel. The alte [...]

    28. I've been thinking about this book a lot recently, and I have to say this book was great like really great. Skin hunger is about two kids, a boy and a girl who are learning the ways of magic. One is from a time period where it's illegal to practice magic, and the other is learning in a period of time where only the rich can learn magic, and how there lives are linked together. What I loved most about the book is the story. I felt as if I was there and experiencing what these kids are going throu [...]

    29. Agh - lost a half-finished review by clicking another link and 'new tab' not working - not that I'd said anything deep and meaningful, but still. The blurb on tells the basic plot, so I'll just add that it's bleak, often moving, and the split-time narration is pretty effective. Occasionally *annoying*, when you're just sucked in to one story and have to hop to another, but still effective. I also found the fact that the book is totally the first part of a trilogy rather than an even somewhat co [...]

    30. I really wish the second book in this series was already out. I hate having to wait!! The book follows two different characters, Sadima and Hahp, who live in different time periods but whose stories are intertwined. Sadima's world is one almost devoid of magic; the kings banished and killed the magicians long ago. In Hahp's world, magic has been restored and is used for everything by those who have the means. Hahp is chosen to go to a special Academy along with 9 other boys. One of them will gra [...]
