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.
Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn: Interesting concept and a nice weaving together of backstory and current events. The narrator (Kay) actually has friends and does things with them. On the other hand, I never found myself completely invested in the story or the characters.
