By Singing Light

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.

The Mermaid's Mirror - L.K. Madigan Oh, I really wanted to like this one, but in the end, I couldn’t quite manage it. I think the main problem was that the balance was off. We needed to spend more time in the underwater world and really understand the relationships there. As it was, I was completely blindsided by the conclusion of the romance. In general, I’m so far removed from that culture that I didn’t feel particularly connected to it, or to the characters. [March 2011]
