This story is based on Finnish mythology. Singers are essentially wizards that use song for healing and such. Vane is an old, powerful singer. He comes to town looking for a tool and is smitten with Aion but Aion is not about to be stuck with this old man when she has a young man of her own that loves her dearly and plans on marrying her the next year. Jouko, Aion’s brother, is a singer too but is young and hot headed. Jouko decides to duel Vane and quickly finds himself in trouble. To dodge the bullet he offers Aion’s hand in marriage. Of course Aion is going to do whatever it takes to avoid being married to Vane no matter what the consequences are. This was an interesting story. I would really like to see how it compares to the original myth. I liked Aion and how she was going to follow her heart no matter what. I would have loved to strangle Jouko but he did learn his lesson from the whole situation and ended up becoming a better person. This is an enjoyable story and one that I think most will like. This is my first book of Annette Lyon’s and I will be keeping my eye out for other books from her. I received Song Breaker from eBooks for Review for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

Took a bit to get into, but it grew on me and I was intrigued. It reads like a fable. Especially toward the end of the book. Wasn't predictable. Nice look into early Finnish culture. Love the cover. Vivid descriptions. I would have given it a 5, but there were tons of typos like words missing from sentences throughout the entire book. I was surprised that this was a final edit copy. Plus, the author didn't make me love the characters. I could have taken or left them. I wasn't, however, fond of her mother who was fickle or her father who needed to grow a backbone. And I felt conflicted toward the end because I felt a bit sorry for Vane and I hadn't cared for him through the whole book. Should I hate him or feel pity for him? All in all, entertaining read. It's clean and appropriate for any age. Teens who like the fantasy genre would especially like this one. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book intrigued me from the moment I read the blurb, and then it delivered. The book is based on a Nordic myth and full of moral lessons. There are so many times that you could say, “And the moral of the story is…” I don’t know anything about the myth it is based on, so the twists caught me completely by surprise. And there are some crazy twists. The characters are great and varied. I wasn’t sure about Jouko at first, but loved that he humbled himself and learned from his mistakes. Aino is great! She knows what she wants and is willing to fight for it. I couldn’t believe their mother, though. She is so selfish! One of my favorite characters ended up being Kari. After reading this book, I feel like I have really missed out on some great stories. Now I want to learn more about the Nordic myths and tales. I received a copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
