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.

Vessel - Sarah Beth Durst I’ve read one or two of Durst’s books before and liked them without really loving them. So I was interested in Vessel–it had an interesting premise and a gorgeous cover–without necessarily getting super excited about it. But I should have been excited, because Vessel is excellent! Character driven fantasy in a historical setting, oh yes! And Liyana is a great main character. I even liked where the romance went. So, YAY.
