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 magical retelling of Alexander the Great, through the eyes of an Egyptian woman. I love Tarr’s writing and this was a really engrossing way to tell the story of Alexander’s Egyptian campaign. I was surprised by certain elements, especially the romance, but the delighted surprise of a pleased reader.
