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.

Assassin's Apprentice - Robin Hobb I’d been meaning to read this series for a looong time and finally got around to starting it. Overall, I enjoyed it and since I’ve heard that the books keep getting better over the course of the series, I’ll keep reading. Things I liked: the Fool (please tell me there’s more of this character!), the everyday details which so often get lost in high fantasy. The prose was a bit stilted sometimes, but my interest in the characters kept me reading. [Apri. 2010]
