I can't remember if I've ever said anything about _Song for the basilisk_ or
not! Anyway, I really loved it. I enjoyed her other recent ones too, _Winter
Rose_ and _The Song of atrix Wolfe_, but _Song for the Basilisk_ "grabbed"
me more. If felt more emotionallly powerful than the others to me, though
_Winter Rose_comes a close second.
