The Singer of all Songs is a pleasant story about a young ice priestess, Calwyn, who has been sheltered for almost all of her life within the cloisters of her religion. All countries within her world have a singing power which their natives may learn, and enable them to control a certain element or power, such as ice, fire, beasts. Calwyn is learning to sing for ice, meanwhile getting herself into trouble, and tending to the bees.
When a young man, Darrow, is found on her side of the wall, she takes care of him. Poorly injured, he fears someone who he claims will come after him. Sure enough, this person does, and Calwyn and Darrow flee. They travel to different countries in an attempt to keep from their pursuer, Samis. In going to the different countries they begin to learn their different songs and make new friends.
This story was good and pleasant, but I don't think it was worth paying $17 for the hardback edition. It is much better to buy as a paperback, for it will probably become a fairly good series. However, I thought it was too short and a bit simple. But it was full of fantasy and had a likeable heroine, as well as a likeable hero, and the premise is fairly original.
