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.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one, but it was pretty neat. Although I’m often bothered when things are needlessly compared to The Hunger Games, there was kind of a steampunky Hunger Games vibe to this one. But Jonathan’s voice–detached but caring, decidedly snarky–is really what made this one work for me.
