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.
I think I liked this even better than the first book! I loved the backstory and the complexity that it gave Zhong Ye. I liked the fact that Ai Ling chose to do things for bad reasons. She’s far from a perfect heroine, but I enjoyed her character and her story. [Sept. 2011]
