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.

Maddigan's Fantasia - Margaret Mahy Started and completed today

I really enjoyed this one which was much more in the Magicians of Hoad vein than the Changeover vein. The Fantasia reminded me a bit of Cart and Cwidder, but the story and Garland are all their own. There were a few points where I really noticed that Mahy is a N.Z. author--not that it felt forced or anything. As a bonus, there's a bit of time-travel and some magic woven in.
