Allegra is a young opera singer who ends up traveling in disguise as a minstrel as she seeks to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of music throughout the land. Her quest takes her far from home, traveling through lands populated by sirens and other strange beings. She meets an array of interesting characters. They are well drawn and enjoyable.
The world and the musical performances are described superbly and made me wonder if this talented writer is a talented musician as well. The story has a lively pace, yet still manages to convey interesting details of the rustic way of life. It made me reexamine how just how important a role music plays in our lives and our culture. It made me want to pick up a tambourine and learn to sing!
Allegra the main character has been plagued by a curse like many others that steals music because of a wrong done to Gerritt who can be seen as the villain in this work. The story line is very original sorta like a mystery as we follow Allegra through her journey of getting this curse lifted.
I wasn't overly ecstatic about this read. But I can say Earl is a disciplined and well written Author. He writes eloquently, his style is fresh and could very well be developed into amazing.
While I did not overly love this story, I was able to follow and finish it with ease.
