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.

A Confusion of Princes - Garth Nix Oh, the worldbuilding! It’s amazing! I loved the Princes, the implications, the way the different groups interacted. I liked our narrator, Khemri, a lot. And then he gets dumped in a human world and I felt like all of that magic and tension that had been building totally died in favor of a kind of boring love story. SIGH. It’s worth reading because the beginning is fantastic and also you may disagree with me.
