really liked it
Read in April, 2012

I went into this book not knowing what to expect and found myself pleasantly surprised; though I did draw comparisons to a favorite book of mine, The Name of the Wind, though Songs was not as detailed as NotW.

I really like the main character Gair. Why did I like him? Hhmmm...first I guess because he was smart enough to know that his magic would get him in trouble so tried to keep it hidden but he still used it. Second, when confronted with a situation that made him uncomfortable or put him in peril, he may have tried to avoid it or reason his way out of it but in the end he would try to do the right thing. I liked the way the powers of people were explained and manifested as well. I'm looking forward to seeing how Cooper continues the story.
