    Before I even had the privilege of reading this book, I was expecting big things I had been reading her blog for a while, and the short stories and writing articles were excellent I had no doubt that Orphan s Song would hold my interest And Gillian didn t let me down This book was absolutely thrilling It most definitely held my interest, and on the way captured a few hours of sleep yawns That s what good books do to you Orphan s Song had balance It balanced two different plot lines t Before I even had the privilege of reading this book, I was expecting big things I had been reading her blog for a while, and the short stories and writing articles were excellent I had no doubt that Orphan s Song would hold my interest And Gillian didn t let me down This book was absolutely thrilling It most definitely held my interest, and on the way captured a few hours of sleep yawns That s what good books do to you Orphan s Song had balance It balanced two different plot lines to change the story up It had enough light hearted moments to make you laugh, but the seriousness of the situation was still there Two sides of the scale were being measured, and Gillian evened them out When I first started the book, I didn t even realize that there were two different plot lines I was quite surprised when the perspective changed to this new character, Ky But I was surprised in a good way His story I won t say much in worry of spoilers might have been my favorite part of the book He seemed like such a sweet boy trying to act as a man You can t help but root for him.And then there s the other main character, Birdie One of my favorite parts of her was the talent of the Song she had been given, but yet that was one of the most confusing parts for me It felt like it was an allegory, but if it was, the point did not come across clear enough for me to understand This was the biggest disappointment for me, but it was easy enough to overlook so I could enjoy the rest of the book There were a few deaths in the book that were quite unexpected to me, but Gillian didn t go into much detail Violence wise, it wasn t bad at all I will be buying this in paperback form as soon as I can so I can add it to my lovely shelf of books I have such trouble finding good, clean books to read, so it was awesome to come across Gillian s work I look forward to her upcoming books, and will most definitely read them as soon as I get a chance

    My biggest complaint about this book the fact that it ended.Other than that which, sadly, most books suffer from , Orphan s Song was excellent I loved the characters, particularly Amos His accent, his history secrets oh, the secrets , his insults and other turns of phrase I need to add boggswoggle to my vocabulary , his determination to protect Birdie even if he sometimes goes about it the wrong wayhe s just awesome Can he be real Please The idea of the Song and the Songkee My biggest complaint about this book the fact that it ended.Other than that which, sadly, most books suffer from , Orphan s Song was excellent I loved the characters, particularly Amos His accent, his history secrets oh, the secrets , his insults and other turns of phrase I need to add boggswoggle to my vocabulary , his determination to protect Birdie even if he sometimes goes about it the wrong wayhe s just awesome Can he be real Please The idea of the Song and the Songkeeper was also fascinatingat least the little I found out about it in this book I would ve liked a fewanswers in that area, but as it s the first book in the series, I shan t complain Also, there s a griffin A griffin This makes me enormously happy because fiction needsgriffins and this one whose name, by the way, is Gundhrold is epic Plotwise, Orphan s Song was very good The first switch from Birdie s plotline to Ky s caught me a little off guard, but that s mostly because of what happened in Birdie s plotline right before the switch My only real issue with the plot is the endingwhich is a cliffhanger Not the most evil cliffhanger I ve ever read, but it s a cliffhanger nonetheless, and I need book two now Please.Overall, Orphan s Song is an excellent book which I would recommend to lovers of fantasy both young and old

    Not a bad little fantasy book I didn t find it particularly amazing, but it was a fun ride I think the biggest issue I had with it was that I was expecting the characters to be a little older it did feel a lotmiddle grade, honestly , although that s not really anyone s fault but my own P I never really fell in love with the characters and found the world rather confusing, although I did love all the talking animals and enjoyed the prose the descriptions of the Song swoons I m givi Not a bad little fantasy book I didn t find it particularly amazing, but it was a fun ride I think the biggest issue I had with it was that I was expecting the characters to be a little older it did feel a lotmiddle grade, honestly , although that s not really anyone s fault but my own P I never really fell in love with the characters and found the world rather confusing, although I did love all the talking animals and enjoyed the prose the descriptions of the Song swoons I m giving it 3 stars, but not because there was anything wrong with it.just not my favorite

    A well written, adventuresome novel of a girl who has the Song within her heart a Songkeeper It is an allegory of trust, faith, hope in the one true God, and a fantasy in an evil torn world I did so love this book, and look forward to reading the continuing story in the next book SONGKEEPER.

    I don t give 5 stars often I try to save them for the best books It s even less likely that I give 5 stars to a debut author, as there is always room for improvement with them.But this debut by Gillian Bronte Adams breaks through with exceptional writing Birdie is an orphan who lives with a mean innkeeper and is used for cheap labor She longs to escape but has nowhere to run And she hears a strange but beautiful melody that no one else can hear When an evil Khelari soldier discovers her id I don t give 5 stars often I try to save them for the best books It s even less likely that I give 5 stars to a debut author, as there is always room for improvement with them.But this debut by Gillian Bronte Adams breaks through with exceptional writing Birdie is an orphan who lives with a mean innkeeper and is used for cheap labor She longs to escape but has nowhere to run And she hears a strange but beautiful melody that no one else can hear When an evil Khelari soldier discovers her identity and captures her, it s up to a traveling peddler with his own secrets to rescue her But there isthan anyone knows at stake, and it encompasses villages, pirates, street children, and a mysterious creature with his own agenda.Orphan s Song is a fantasy novel that has an interesting premise It is not unique, but Gillian writes enough twists and turns that the plot can t be predicted Her characters stand out and have distinct voices, and they are easy to cheer for.What sets this book into the 5 star range is the beauty of the writing Some books try to be fancy with words and descriptions and it becomes distracting Gillian has a wonderful touch of giving evocative description and showing that flows along with everything in the book The pictures she creates with her words elevates this from any standard fantasy.I knew from Gillian s blog that she cared deeply about her craft and story, and the proof is in Orphan s Song It has vaulted into the best book I ve read this year The only problem is that I have to wait to find out what happens Great job, Gillian

    This book has been sitting on my shelf since I got it for Christmas, waiting to strike my fancy in a moment I was searching for a new read Fancy struck on Thursday, but my day was so busy I carried it around all day and only read the first chapter However, on Friday my work got canceled because of snow, so I ended up plowing through almost the entire book in one day.The first few chapters had me worried The story had it s unique points, but seemed to fall into the tired pattern of many fantas This book has been sitting on my shelf since I got it for Christmas, waiting to strike my fancy in a moment I was searching for a new read Fancy struck on Thursday, but my day was so busy I carried it around all day and only read the first chapter However, on Friday my work got canceled because of snow, so I ended up plowing through almost the entire book in one day.The first few chapters had me worried The story had it s unique points, but seemed to fall into the tired pattern of many fantasy stories You know the ones I m talking about Poor orphan with mysterious beginnings Crotchety, abusive guardian And a randomly talking animal.Thankfully, uniqueness spun out of the mundane beginnings The biggest strength of this story was the mystery Gillian masterfully steered clear of explaining too much too soon The mystery of The Song and the Songkeeper unravel slowly and require continued reading to discover what s going on The roots of pain that hold Amos to his past and cause him to fight destiny are slow reveal themselves The reader must keep on reading to learn what the prize the dark soldiers and the children of the Underground are fighting over is, and why it s important And the talking cat Well, he s a mystery too At the end of the tale, I can t say I was overly amazed by the innovation of this book Instead it settled itself comfortably in a comfortable, tried and proven path, and followed that path well That s not a bad thing in my book There was enough different to keep me intrigued and enough sameness to allow me a comfortable, relaxes read I ll definitely be in the market for the sequel
