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.

Whispers Under Ground - Ben Aaronovitch The Peter Grant series remains one of my best recent discoveries. The magical system is well thought out, the details of policing are believable (though I have no idea how accurate they are). And Peter himself is just a great narrator, alternately learned, funny and entirely geeky. I love it and hope it keeps going on for years to come.
