From the Isle of Echoes the forces of good and evil are held in harmony by those who hear and sing. When a mainlander's ship is wreeked and the Merlee half creatures are heard crying across the waves the lives of three novice Singers are changed forever. Rialle, the heroine, who hears the cry of the Merlee, is sent to calm them with Challa, her voice as sweet as sunlight. Frenn, her friend and protector, follows as a stowaway while Kherron, the rebel, allows his desire for freedom to take him into danger and a headlong clash with the enemy and their mysterious powers. All are caught up in a dangerous and sinister web, battling against the powers of darkness that threaten to destroy their world. From Amazon UKHere are some of what the other blogger's thought of Song Quest:
Sammee of I Want to Read That said, "This is one of those books I really wish I had read when I was younger. As an adult it’s a book I really enjoyed but as a child I would have absolutely treasured it."
Chloe of The Book Bug said, "Its one of the most original that I have read in a very long time... Its extremely well-written, the plot complicated and elaborate with well developed characters."
Ah Yuan of GAL Novelty said, "I reread this book so many times as a kid that you can see how worn the cover is around the edges, the creases. I always considered Song Quest one of my formative childhood books and first few fantasy loves."
Song Quest was the winner of the Branford Boase Award, and was also longlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
You can buy Song Quest from Amazon UK and from Amazon US.
