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.
A young boy, Randal, is won in a chess game and given to a knight who raises him with his own grandson. Set against the backdrop of the struggle after William the Conqueror’s death, Knight’s Fee is an evocative, bitter-sweet, and ultimately rewarding story.
