Katherine Roberts has created a fantastical world that I was sad to leave. I'm a big fan of any story that has a basis in singing. Anne McCaffrey's Crystal Singer books are some of my favorites, and I have yet to find another book combining singing and fantasy that I've enjoyed - that is, until Song Quest. I loved the different types of song - I thought they tied in so fantastically, especially to me and my friends, who thrive on music. (I have to say, that's part of our generation - we NEED our music to survive.) Seeing the different types and what they could do was amazing. The Half-Creatures were my favorite part of the story. I LOVE fantasy beasts, and these were beautifully well crafted. As for the actual humans in the story, I liked Rialle, though I felt as if she was too passive sometimes - though, in her situation, it was understandable. I LOVED watching Kherron's development throughout the story - he was definitley my favorite character. My only problem with the story were a few minor characters that didn't really get explained (hello? what is up with Chissar?) and the very abrupt and open ending. The thing with fantasies is that I like knowing what happens to the characters - don't just leave me hanging, wondering if they were eaten by quatzals.

This book has to be my favourite book of all time. I loved everything about it. The suspense in the plotline and the brilliant character of Kherron. It has been on my bookshelf for nearly 5 years and I still love reading it again and again.

You must read this book. Ms. Roberts wrote the most original story ever. I loved it so much it forced me to buy all of her books! Anyone who has not read the series must do so!

I ordered Song Quest in school, and though i didn't really understand it at first i read it again and i LOVED it. roberts really let go of her imagiation creating fabulous characters, my favorite being the rebellious Kherron.

I got Song Quest for Christmas and started reading it right away! I have to admit, Lord of the Rings, and Tamora Pierce books are excellent, but very much follow the same plot. Katherine Roberts has created a truly original story-line and ideas, and makes the book impossible to put down. I liked Rialle and how she was able to commune with the Merlee, and Frenn who was willing to risk his life to save her. It was all very wonderful. Kherron was a wonderful character too, and if you haven't read this book, I suggest you do!

This book was great! I didn't understand the beginning at first, but then I read it over again. It was really good; I reccomend this book to anyone. Originally, my friend showed me this and let me borrow her book. I can't wait until she lends me the sequel!

I'm really glad I gave into impulse and bought this. It gives an incredibly detailed account of an incredibly fascinating world, and you really get to know the characters. I also loved the ending, and can't wait to read the sequel.

This book is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I have enjoyed reading this book. I could not put this book down without wrapping my mind wondering what happened next. This book is one of 'book hall of fame' if there was one.-
