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.

Peacemaker (Foreigner, #15) - C.J. Cherryh

15th book in the Bren Cameron saga. This one wraps up the Cajieri’s birthday party plot, with lots of machinations. I found it completely compelling and at the same time slightly frustrating–ie I wanted a little more resolution SOMEWHERE. Nonetheless, the Assassin’s Guild storyline was completely heart stopping. A great example of Cherryh’s ability to write political machinations.
