By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Jaran - Kate Elliott

Why didn’t I read this earlier? It’s a delightful example of character-based science fiction, with wonderful worldbuilding and characters. The plot is plotty enough to not distract from the real heart of the story, which is Tess and her journey. That’s a lot more coherent than I felt when I finished this one; there was a lot of fangirl flailing going on. I will absolutely be reading the next book.
