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.

The Horn of Roland

The Horn Of Roland - Ellis Peters In general I really enjoyed this. It had a nice atmosphere and Una is very likeable. But I simply wasn’t clear enough on the relationship between Crista and Lucas. Are they in love? Is it a father-daughter thing? (In context this is not as creepy as it sounds.) I needed some more basis for judgement. [Feb. 2011]
