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.

The Bards of Bone Plain - Patricia A. McKillip I like the setting, which is an unusual one for McKillip. It seems more 19th century without--and this is excellent--getting all steampunky (not that there’s anything wrong with steampunk, just that I don’t think it would mix well with McKillip). The characters were also quite delightful.
