    EBOOK å EPUB Song for the Basilisk ¶ Paperback FREE ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP Song for the Basilisk910 I've just finished Song for the Basilisk by Patricia McKillip and I would rate it very high even compared with other books by the same favorite author of mine It shows better control of plot inspired from the Grand Opera style of the 19th Century beautiful and evocative language strong characters and a spectacular finaleI have found some similarities in this story with Guy Gavriel Kay's Tigana but each books stands on its own merits While I rate Kay very high in my preferences between Tigana and Basilisk I am inclined to prefer the second Both are very emotional books but

    EBOOK å EPUB Song for the Basilisk ¶ Paperback FREE ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP Song for the BasiliskI guess I'm in the minority here but I did not like this book It's super boring It takes nearly half the book before anything even starts to happen with the plot The writing style just drags and there's way too many descriptions of things written like the author is trying to be poetic For me the book reads like some boring high literature book that you might have been forced to read in college

    EBOOK å EPUB Song for the Basilisk ¶ Paperback FREE ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP Song for the BasiliskI’ve mentioned before that I had a somewhat difficult time getting into Patricia McKillip’s books and Song for the Basilisk is definitely one of the difficult ones in my opinion I wouldn’t suggest starting with it It contains many characteristics that the other books share — Ombria in Shadow the tyrant ruling the city; The Bards of Bone Plain the bards of Luly; the lyrical reflective p

    EBOOK å EPUB Song for the Basilisk ¶ Paperback FREE ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP Song for the BasiliskDecades ago Prince Pellior came bloodily to power in the ashes of slaughtered Tormalyne House Far to the North on the island of Luly a man without a name or a past trains at a school which teaches music and to those who listen well enough magic The prince’s birthday opera is approaching and as the story weaves the lost and bastard sons of Tormalyne House with the teachers at the city’s music school with the daughter the prince has molded in his own terrifying image music and magic begin to tell the story of the past and the futureHuh Okay so either McKillip has gotten a lot less abstruse since the last book of hers I read The Tower at Stony Wood or I’ve become a inductive reader A bit of both I think In any case I enjoyed her usual imagistic style where the entire book is wrapped in layer after layer of metaphor and the magic is as puzzling and inexplicable at the end as at the beginning The thing about McKillip is that her universe is governed

    EBOOK å EPUB Song for the Basilisk ¶ Paperback FREE ´ CITYBREAKSCHEAP Song for the BasiliskA fairy tale for adultsand no I don't mean sexIn 2009 Song for the Basilisk was nominated for the Tähtifantasia Award and in 1999 it was nominated for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult LiteratureMy TakeA typical McKillip with its lilting poetic jewel like phrases richly packed with tension and description My one issue with this story is that McKillip keeps skipping chunks I spent time than I wanted trying to figure out what was happening in various parts of the storyI was also irritated with how stupid Hexel was in his final opera He already hates the prince and he knows the story Um but it's just dawned on me that I had insider knowledgeoops So actually it was perfectly reasonable for Hexel to create a story that so perfectly parallels Caladrius' adventuresThere were a number of elements within Song for the Basili
