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.
One of my favorite Sutcliff books. The story of Jestyn the Englishman, who seemed destined to be a cowherd all his life, but who winds up in the first Varangian guard of the Byzantine Emperor’s. It’s also a story about friendship and loyalty.
