The Singers of Nevya

”In the wintry world of Nevya, music is literally the only thing that keeps the population alive. Gifted Singers call up safe circles of light and heat; they use their music to heal the sick and broken. But their Gift also forces them to make great sacrifices, as they’re thrust into political battles and required to give up almost all human contact. Some are strong enough to survive the perils . . . and some are not. Louise Marley vivdly portrays a world of ice and snow and occasional summer, of dangers that lurk both outside, in the cold, and inside, among flawed and difficult people. She details the cost that accompany her great Gift, but she also conveys such joy in music that the reader's own world glows with warmth and illumination every time a Singer performs.“ -Sharon Shinn
