I am so glad there was a happy ending. This was perfectly written for a short story. One of the best I have ever read. I never wished for more details, or that the story was longer. I love that!! Rlt

Absolutely beautiful :) i really like this book because it leaves u thinking about it afterwards and even though its only 28 pages, it really does affect you. This is a wonderfully written book about cruel people, but also hope, and it has a beautiful ending. I highly reccomend this. And its free! You have nothing to loose :)

I enjoy this author. It was a sad story but had alot of meaning behind it. It's short and makes you think so yes I would recommend it.

I am not one for short stories, but this one caught my eye. I enjoyed all 28 pages, felt it was well written and flowed nicely. Doesn't hurt that it was also free.

This is a really entertaining little story about a man who is a "music mage" (makes magic with his song). He's been imprisoned for a really long time, and doesn't sing for fear of his guards killing him (a not unfounded fear). It took a couple pages to really get into the story, to figure out what was going on, but once that happened I became truly and deeply invested in his fate, and the fate of a companion that he acquires early on. The writing is awesome, and the ending is stunning. If you can spare thirty minutes or so to read it, do!

 What a surprising delight!  I'm going to have to stop being surprised at enjoying Rae Carson's writing. Lol. She keeps catching me off guard, though. This time I assumed that a short story written from an elderly male prisoner's point of view would be... *shrug* I don't know, simple? Straightforward?  Nope. There's so much more to singing. Without saying what or why, the story slowly reveals everything without such boring things as explanations. It's beautiful, like the patch of light in Errik's cell. It's unpredictable. Unsuspectingly glorious. It's cold, hard, gritty, bleak and glorious all at once. I don't know how to rate a short story, really. I feel like it must be a 5 - but then, pretty much anything Rae writes will be a 5 for me from here on out. Lol. It's unfair, really, but some writing works its way inside my innards like that. Either I'm right - it's really good - or I'm prejudiced to always think so.  :-)

It takes real talent to bring tears to my eyes. It can be done by bringing to life a character. It takes a great deal of talent to bring a character to life in a few short pages. But when a writer manages to do that I can only say Bravo!
