"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Ms. Hamill is an extremely skilled storyteller and has a way of penning descriptions and characters that elicit strong reactions in her readers. I found myself shivering when Kendric told Mithrais about the cairn path in the North Wood and laughing at pretty much everything Emrys said. He is by far one of my favorite characters so far. Mithrais and Telyn complement each other perfectly while continuing to be strong as individuals. I’ve been rooting for them since the very beginning and the progression of their relationship has been quite satisfying. The introduction of other important players was also done well, in that they aren’t all thrown at the reader at once, like some authors tend to do. That made it much easier to keep track of who was who and why they were important.
I did come across the occasional typo, but nothing major, distracting, or pervasive. I’ve heard the author is really good about making corrections, so this note may not be relevant to anyone reading this review months after I’ve written it. But you guys know how I am about typos and that’s why I’ve given “Truthsong” 4.5 stars instead of 5.
For a bit, I was disappointed because I thought the climax came halfway through the book and what followed was mostly tying up loose ends. Don’t get me wrong, they were interesting ends but I got the feeling the ‘action’ was over until the next book. Oh, was I so, so wrong! It took a few chapters before I found myself under the creeping suspicion that what was coming would blow what happened with the royal delegation out of the water. It did, and it was so much crazier, scarier, and more amazing than I could ever have hoped for.
Bottom line: “Truthsong” is a beautifully fitting follow-up to “Song Magick”. I would highly recommend this for those who love a good fantasy spiced with intrigue and a dash of romance. I’m very much looking forward to the next installment in this series!
Life for this young bard and her lifemate has taking on new lines of battel. Stay in the wood. Stay together. Stay in court. Stay. Stay. Stay. The life of a bard was to travel, see the world, make music, spread the lyrics. Telyn has so many decisions to make and not much time to make them. Mithrais has his own set of problems to sort through. The time has come for them to make their choices. Choices that has an effect on more than just themselves.
Beautifully written. Well crafted, molded, and solidified. This was high fantasy at its finest. There magic, mystery, fantasy, mythical aspects and more. I highly recommend reading book one first then book two. You will get so much more out of the two of them together. Book two brings together what you find in book one so magically.
I received a copy of TRUTHSONG by Elisabeth Hamill in exchange for an honest review. It is the second book in the “Songmaker” series. I read book one prior, and was excited to dive back into the adventure. Definitely read SONG MAGICK first, otherwise you won’t enjoy it to the full extent.
This is fantasy at its best. TRUTHSONG reminded me of all the fantasy novels I swallowed up as in high school. I couldn’t get enough of the good versus evil, the love in the background, the magic that fills the air.
I love Telyn as a character. She is complex, and her magic speaks for itself. A great role model for teens.
Highly recommended for fantasy fans like me.
