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.

Lirael - Garth Nix I loved Sabriel, so I was excited for the sequel. I did like it, though it does one of those abrupt time jumps that I often find disconcerting. Lirael is a new character and I found her journey a little less interesting and convincing than Sabriel’s. In general, the world-building that I had liked in Sabriel was present, but Lirael didn’t feel as tight as the first book.
