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.

Cryoburn - Lois McMaster Bujold I don’t have a lot to say about this one. I mean, yay Miles, as always. My Barrayaran prejudice continues; I enjoyed the story, but felt that the heart of it came at the end. Speaking of which WAAAAH. I even knew it was coming, thanks to an accidental spoiler in Wikipedia, but I still bawled quarts. Especially at Gregor’s bit. (Have I mentioned that my massive literary crush on Miles tops my massive literary crush on Gregor by only a little bit?) So obviously, I’m hoping for a Barrayaran book as the next one. Speaking of which, I do feel that the end of this book could really rival the beginning of Memory in terms of changing the tenor of the series.
