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 Iron Duke -  Meljean Brook The premise of this book was fascinating and I liked the main character. However, I couldn’t handle the sexual content. I know this is a personal thing, so if alternate history steampunk London with ships appeals to you at all, and you won’t be bothered by pretty frank romance stuff, then go for it. I’m not sure that I regret reading it, but I don’t think I’ll be reading any more. (I was somewhat bothered by the male main character and a tad troubled by the implications of the Horde.) [Jan. 2011]
