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.

A Poisoned Season - Tasha Alexander The second Lady Emily mystery. I enjoyed it again, especially the way Alexander addresses the fact that not all of Emily’s friends are going to share in her new-found radical beliefs. I did notice some clunky constructions (I know not, for instance) which I think were meant to make it sound more old-fashioned. Unfortunately, they weren’t actually authentic and ended up just being jarring. [Oct. 2009]
