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 Jewel of the Kalderash - Marie Rutkoski I was a bit nervous about this, as I always am about the conclusions of series I've enjoyed. What if they don't end well? What if someone I like dies? What if the right people don't end up together? It is very stressful. However, Marie Rutkoski is fabulous, and this is a great conclusion to a wonderful series. I liked Neel's bits especially--his tension between his personal desires and his responsibilities was great. (Dec 2011)
