Stolen Songbird

Stolen Songbird - Danielle L. Jensen

The tension was so incredible in this book, I had to wait a day for my nerves to settle down before writing my thoughts.  The synopsis on Goodreads compares this book to Seraphina and Graceling.  While I haven't read Graceling (yet), I can see the similarites with Seraphina.  The comparison that I kept calling to mind, however, was A Game of Thrones.  Roland is the first character I've hated as much as Joffrey.  Moreover, there were strong political themes, conspiracies for power, and forbidden love.  What I liked most about this book is that it kept me guessing until the very end.  Also, the writing was very good with mostly likable characters.  I would have liked more resolution on some plot points and a more satisfying ending but I guess I will just have to wait patiently for the sequel.  Overall, it was very entertaining and I really enjoyed it.  I would highly recommend to fans of epic fantasy.
