|Plot Summary of Darksong Rising - Spellsong Cycle 3|
|"Lady Anna, song-sorceress and Regent of Defalk, continues her campaign to secure her lands from invasion and foster equal rights for women. An interesting exercise in managing and manipulating medieval-style politics, though the central conflict of the book is strangely underwhelming. Lady Anna is an outstandingly detailed, realistic character."
