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.
A lovely and impressive debut. If I wanted to sum it up very quickly, I would say Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell for middle schoolers. That’s fairly accurate, although it’s actually set in a pseudo-Victorian world, but it stands solidly on its own.
