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.

Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake In general, I very much liked this one. It had a fresh feel to it, while at the same time it wasn't too clever for its own good. I liked Casseus and his voice and the story. I did find myself a bit annoyed with Anna's backstory which felt rather predictable and flat compared to the rest. Not that it wasn't awful, but it didn't quite explain the differentness of her versus the other ghosts. Anyway, I did like it a lot and am looking forward to the sequel. (Dec 2011)
