    One thought on “Singer in the Snow”

    1. Reviewed by Dena Landon for TeensReadTooIn this inventive and well-told fantasy, Marley creates a world bound by ice and snow, where the daily ritual of quirna is all that keeps its residents from death. Those who create the ritual are called Singers, their ability to channel their Gift - a psionic power - and create warmth carefully trained at the Conservatory before they are sent out into greater society to serve. Emle is training to be a Singer, but while her technical skills are perfect, she [...]

    2. The professional reviews I read about this series said that it shouldn't be classed as YA, as it's just generally wonderful. Those reviewers are insane.I really haven't been as frustrated with characters in a long while as I have with Marley's ice-world inhabitants. They're twits. They are brought up in a cross between a cloister and a snobby finishing school, and then are loosed on a world that's been trained to revere them. Now, this might be an interesting construct to take apart, but it's a [...]

    3. To be fair I didn't read any of the other books in the related series so maybe I'm missing some essential aspect. But as a stand alone book, it was a nice story but I found it to be trite, following the typical young adult blue print of young people being smarter and more capable than their seniors and struggling with the normal difficulties of love and discovering who they are; with nothing really original to set it apart save that it was set in the cold. Plus I couldn't stand the mother charac [...]

    4. Ugh, this was immensely unsatisfying. Let me start by saying that the author's prose is lovely. The characters are well-written and consistent. The world-building is intriguing. But the plot? The story? The character development?The only real tension in the story (view spoiler)[(the abuse) (hide spoiler)] is completely ignored. It's never resolved. The plot point that the author orchestrated to be the main conflict however, fell flat. Everything was tied up too neatly, too quickly, too easily. ( [...]

    5. A marvelously crafted world with real danger lurking ominously about! I love this sort of thing. The characters struggle with some heavy situations, particularly in regards to family and coming of age. It can be a bit difficult to read for the truly sensitive, and those who love happy endings might be the tiniest bit disappointed. The bittersweetness of it, though, is touching, and considering the darkness of Luke's storyline, it's appropriate. He's going to carry this with him forever, and so i [...]

    6. By giving this 3 stars, I don't mean to discredit it in any way. I would say it's good but is light enough not to warrant 4 stars. It's a "summer read" sort of book. I oriented to the world quickly, enjoyed the characters and the plot. The book reads quite quickly, which was enjoyable as well. I read it within a few days and I'm a slow reader. The situation with one character's family dynamic struck me as realistic through the first half or 2/3 of the book but in that last third I had to rely on [...]

    7. A really intriguing premise--on an ice world, Gifted musicians have psi, which warms and protects large, communal Houses from dying of the deep cold. She does a nice job of worldbuilding, using foreign-sounding words to indicate unique animals and cultural events (for instance, every night there is a hot bath with a special name; the mandatory nightly warming ceremony is called a "quirinha", IIRC), and has a couple of characters with interesting conflicts (like Mreen, a Gifted who cannot speak, [...]

    8. Louise Marley's writing reminds me of Tamora Pierce'sexcept her characters aren't as good. I could easily picture the events, because there just wasn't much happening. Apparently, the people of Nevya just hunt for food, care for their animals, and do a bit of cleaning and occasional traveling. Cantrixes/Singers practice their instruments, bath, eat, and occasionally accompany riders. It's not realistic on how empty these people's lives are. Someone has to make a fuss once in a while, someone has [...]

    9. I bought this for a dollar because I thought the introducing line of the summary, "On the ice planet of Nevya, music is a matter of life and death," was very interesting. However, I was afraid it would not be good because it had been marked down so many times.I don't get why it was marked down!! I loved it!! Sometimes, the foreign vocabulary threw me off a few times, but that was because I'd neglected to read the glossary. I loved the characters, and I thought the idea of channeling psi energy t [...]

    10. I loved this book. It's especially great to read on a cold winter's night sitting by the fire. The characters all had personal conflicts to battle and interesting pasts that wove the story together. The book was hard to put down. Louise Marley's writing style, characters and plot reminded me of Shannon Hale and her Bayern book series which I also loved. This is the first book I've read by Louise Marley and I look forward to reading more.

    11. The book was a pretty quick read, but learning the book's vocabulary was a bit tedious. It was hard to start due to not knowing the language, but as the book progresses it becomes easier to remember the vocabulary. The story-line was alright, but it could have been a little bit better and the reader could have learned more about the character's backgrounds. It wasn't that great.

    12. I read this book a couple of time from my local library and just love the story. I am a huge fan of fantasy and mythical times intertwined with magic. I gave it 5 stars because it was smooth from start to bottom.

    13. Thank heavens I have a little bit of music training or else I might have been lost with this one. It was a fun and simple story.

    14. It was an interesting read, although the constant use of those made-up words was sometimes annoying, but, on the whole, I quite enjoyed it.
