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.

Dangerous to Know - Tasha Alexander I loved the first few books in this series but haven't quite managed to get into the last few. I felt like this one was plagued by random chunks of exposition (I have found a body! I will think about my own problems in an effort to catch readers up!) and anachronistic attitudes. It was all the more pointed because I started it just after I finished A Spy in the House. [Feb. 2011]
