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.
I liked this one less than the first two in the trilogy. It was long–I thought unnecessarily–and I was annoyed by the one-dimensional portrayal of traditionally feminine women. But more than that, the emotional beats didn’t quite work. I should have cared a lot more about what was happening to Beka than I did.
