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.
Third in the Chalion series. Ingrey is an extremely compelling character. Wencel was an interesting comparison--I had a hard time figuring out if he was going to be the villain or a supporting hero. I do love Bujold, although in this case I kept hoping for just a mention of the characters from the earlier books and not getting it. [Feb. 2011]
