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.
This is one of those books that makes a really good case for small press/independent/self-publishing. The pacing is quiet and slow, which is right for the story it’s telling. I love the worldbuilding and the characters; this wasn’t a super emotional read, but it was a very satisfying one. The conflict at the end seems a bit rushed, but I like Antuniet a lot & resonate with her journey. And I really liked that we still get Margerit and Barbara’s points-of-view
