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 described this to a co-worker as a multicultural environmental fantasy set in the Bahamas. Which is a fairly accurate description, but doesn’t capture the wonderful oddness of this. Cooper is familiar with the Bahamas which helps to ground the story and to keep it from feeling exploitative.
