Like so many (far too many) self-published works, this one has an uncomfortably high degree of mechanical errors; this being one of the reasons I am giving it less than five stars. That being said, Sonant is a wonderful novel and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Sparrow has a curious knack for dragging out a story without allowing it to slow down or grow stale--and yes, that is a rather loaded comment on my part. As I was reading the book I repeatedly found myself asking when are we going to get ...more

What a quirky read. I love a book that can just lose itself in the details. In Sonant, music plays a huge part in the plot, and it was fun to just read through lines dwelling on the harmony and melody of sound. For a music lover, it's the ultimate geekfest. I was riveted.

Religion also seems to be a focus of this novel in both it's positive and negative aspects. The over zealous are humane but flawed as are the ones without faith. It's not preachy in the least. It's quirky.

An amazing story that stayed with me long after I finished reading it. I was glued to it from the beginning. A girl names Aerie plays string bass extremely well. She is hired to play in a band that plays weird music that strengthens strange whirlwinds that turn carbon into diamonds. The neighbor woman is concerned and call in church groups to end the music. The neighbor's husband is curious and wants to discover what exactly is going on. Thought provoking!

Great to find something a little out of the ordinary. Gritty characters, may take a tiny bit to get into this one but is worthwhile. Plot thickens nicely, the characters continue to grow, and it remains nicely wierd and offbeat. Really an original idea and that's a hard thing to come up with these days.

I got this book either as free download or on sale from B&N.

Interesting but odd story, I wish it had gone into more of the metaphysical beings and less of the religious crazies. Music that caused the beings to grow and react (plus produce diamonds)but was seen as "devil-made" by the crazies.

Too many asides and not very necessary backstories.

If you can get past the awful editing then it's a good book - interesting characters, ideas and storyline. The same goes for the author's other books - Lethe, Xenolith and Peregrin.
