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.

Daughter of the Flames - Zoë Marriott For some reason, it took me a very long time to get through this book, even though I enjoyed it. It's one of those where the worldbuilding is on display and the politics of the world are as important as the characters. I liked the multi-cultural aspects of the story, and the way that the two groups were portrayed. In fact, I can't think of a single thing about it I disliked. At the same time, it didn't grab me as much as I had hoped. (Dec 2011)
