I picked up this first novel by Constable because of a cover blurb by Garth Nix. We'll see if I trust HIM again! ;-)
Seriously, maybe Constable will improve with time, but I didn't feel that this book was up to general publishing standards. It really felt like a first effort.
It started out OK, with us meeting the young, talented, but rebellious priestess in her home village... but once she absconds from said village (with an injured sorcerer on the run from his powerful nemesis) it becomes hopeless.
There's no attempt at character generation, and so much happens in so few pages that you could miss entire locations if you blinked... seriously - this page: we're at a college, next page pirates, two pages later, volcano, three pages later, dinosaurs, everything flying by without any time for the reader to FEEL - or even visualize - anything. A character might die - but we don't care, 'cause we never got to know him in the slightest, since he was only ALIVE for 5 pages! (etc.)
The plot is really stereotypical (There are 9 types of magical spellsong, and the bad guy wants to collect them all so he can take over the world) - and while I do feel that a 'classic' plot can be done well, Constable needs to learn to slow down and savor her writing - so that her readers can enjoy the action!

An interesting audio performance. This story is about a world where magic is performed by people who sing and chant. The audio version has haunting songs whenever magic is performed - a bit eerie, but it enhances the experience. I liked the story, but the ending fizzled a bit. Also, I didn't like the love ?? interest between 2 of the characters - especially since the girl was a teenager and the man was over 30 - creepy! ( )

The narration style seemed similar to Tamora Pierce: simplistic, yet not uninteresting. I wasn't a fan of the audio version, and found the world to be somewhat plain. ( )

At first I thought I would be a little bored with this middle-reader fantasy, but I ended up getting into it. It would have been nice to get to know the characters a little more. It's a trilogy, so I imagine that there's still a lot to learn. If I see the second in the series, I'll probably pick it up. The focus on chants as the source of magic was a fun to think about. The world and its magic are filling out nicely. ( )

Singer of All Songs is a short, captivating novel. This book took me from this world to a world full of magic and other wonders that you can only get through reading. Calwyn and her friends go on an epic adventure to stop the evil and ambitious, Samis, from trying to conquer all of Tremaris by becoming the 'singer of all songs'- possessing the ability to sing all the chantments.

Kate Constable created a world that is unlike any other. How amazing it would be to be able to create ice, wind, fire, etc... with song, or as in Halasaa's case, through dance and body movements.

This novel is definitely worth reading, as well as the other two books in the trilogy! ( )
