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.

Cut to the Quick (Julian Kestrel Mysteries, #1) - Kate Ross When dandy Julian Kestrel accepts a near-stranger’s invitation to be his best man, he has no idea that he’s taking himself into a strained situation where nothing is as it seems. Murder follows and, in an effort to clear himself and his friends, Kestrel becomes a detective. First in a series. I really enjoyed it, although I wasn’t entirely convinced by the 1820’s setting. Sadly, Ross died very young, and only wrote four books.
