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.
There are lots of things about this that are great, from the setting to the characters. And yet somehow I was left with the same sort of unsettled, bothered feeling that I got from Time of the Ghost. I’m sure it doesn’t help that I read them in fairly close succession. But I do pay attention to what state a book leaves me in, and in this case it was a strange, scared one. [Sept. 2011]
