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.
Lovely McKillip. One of those slightly dream-like stories that she’s able to weave so well. Also has a GORGEOUS cover painting. I envy her the cover artist. [Dec. 2008]
Another Tam Lin retelling. Perilous Gard and Fire and Hemlock are still my favorites, with Pamela Dean’s version and this one a close tie behind them. This is a looser retelling, but the structure is very much there.[Oct. 2010]
