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 tore through this one. Very exciting! Alternate realities with living warships and walking machines! I would have loved it around age fifteen or so–which isn’t to suggest that I don’t like it now. I did feel that prose-wise it wasn’t super exciting, and I’m not sure I always believed in Deryn/Dylan. I lent it to my brother today and I’m waiting to see what he thinks. [May 2010]
