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 Talisman Ring - Georgette Heyer The Talisman Ring

A Georgian mystery. After the death of his great-uncle, Sir Tristram Shield attempts to uncover the truth of Sir Matthew Plunkett's murder, a murder which led to the exile of his cousin Ludovic. He is either helped or hindered by a large cast of characters, including Ludovic, their half-French cousin Eustacie, an inn-keeper/smuggler named Joseph Nye, and Miss Sarah Thane, a lady travelling with her brother. A great deal of fun and hijinks ensue. Despite the seriousness of Ludovic's accused crime, this is a light-hearted book, full of funny moments and misunderstandings.
