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.
McKillip’s latest. In Sealey Head a bell rings every evening at the last moment of sunset. Most people pay no attention to it, but some always listen. This is a story of interlocking worlds, of love and loss. It’s a story where no one is quite as they seem. I thought it was excellent, a bit of a return to form for McKillip after Solstice Wood.
