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.

The Privilege of the Sword - Ellen Kushner I think I actually liked Swordspoint better, but I’m struggling to come up with a reason. It’s not that Kushner’s writing is bad in either case, or that I disliked the characters. I was actually very fond of Katherine and Marcus. Having read them in order, the Duke is more tragic than anything else. But I think Swordspoint will be the one I revisit more often.
