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.
This was kind of the opposite of Shades of Milk and Honey–the historical details were well done, while the fantasy part and the romance were both a bit eye-roll inducing. I think that Percy as a character needs to feel older than she does, which is partly because she is constantly–and I mean CONSTANTLY–giggling or squealing. [Oct. 2010]
