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.
A medieval murder mystery, focusing on Justin de Quincy, illegitimate son of the Bishop of Chester, who agrees to investigate a murder on behalf of Eleanor of Aquitaine. I like Penman’s work and this was a little lighter glimpse into the world of her other medieval books. [Oct. 2010]
