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.

Rook

Rook - Sharon Cameron

A post-apocalyptic book based on The Scarlet Pimpernel. I loooved it. I love The Scarlet Pimpernel anyway, and Cameron is doing some really fun things with the story–nice little touches of homage without tying herself to the plot when it doesn’t work for the story she’s telling. Plus, Sophia–this version of the Pimpernel–is a great character, and I found the romance pretty swoony. (secrets! trust issues! roof climbing!)
