Things I loved:
Characters – 5/5: They are so fresh and original. Amos, Ky, Birdie, Gundhrold, Sym, Inali, Migdon…there’s nothing 2D about them. And the way Gillian has made her characters so human is amazing. Even the minor characters aren’t completely bad or completely good, but are a perfect bend of complexity.
Setting – 5/5: The settings are so vivid and so…different. I absolutely love them!
Plot – 5/5: Exciting, gripping; even when the story switched between characters I hardly cared because both story lines were so interesting. It was very well paced.
Theme – 5/5: Very well done. Though powerful, the theme is also subtle.
Dialogue – 5/5: I had to include this simply so I could give examples of some of my favorite lines. Amos’s insults, for example, are the best I’ve ever read. Take his line about the griffin, Gundhrold. “Why did the sand-blasted catbird have to be so seaswoggling logical? It was downright infuriating.” And this confrontation between the two as they are forced to travel together. “Gundhrold’s head lowered until his massive beak was only inches away from Amos’s nose. “I am a son of the desert. This was once my home – the home of all my kind. I know every crag, every slope, every crick and hollow-” Amos rolled his eyes. “Every blatherin’ speck o’ sand?”
Everything else – 5/5: Seriously, I love this book. And I’m a picky reader with a habit of correcting things as I write. But this book is very well written. There are some dark scenes at the end, but they are well handled and very necessary to the story.
The one thing I don’t like:
The fact I’ll likely have to wait a year for the next book. I want find out what happens to my favorite characters (which happens to be all of them, but there is one in particular that needs immediate attention…)!
This book branched off in directions I didn't expect. From the awesome, lion-riding desert people to the silver-tongued dwarves in the mountains, this book takes the reader on quite the adventure.
And the ending! I was prepared for it because I'd seen a spoiler, but it still hurt! AHHHH!!!!!
I had a little trouble getting into the book at first, but I think some of that was I didn't take the time to re-read Orphan's Song before starting Songkeeper. I would've had an easier time connecting with the characters if I'd just finished Orphan's Song and was reading these back to back instead of spending most of the beginning trying to remember who all the characters were and how they related to each other.
Still loved the book and can't wait for the next one!

This book is even better than its predecessor, Orphan's Song (which I absolutely loved!). Make sure that you read Orphan's Song first, or this one won't make any sense...Read more
