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.

Black Ships - Jo Graham A re-telling of the Aeneid, from the point of view of Aeneas’s oracle. It made an interesting counter-point to Ursula LeGuin’s Lavinia, which I loooooooved. Graham’s retelling is very solid, with a sense of the world changing around the characters, which generally speaking I really enjoy. And Gull is a lovely narrator.
