Dangerous Voices by Rae Carson - Paul's Review
Smashwords | Goodreads
Title: Dangerous Voices
Author: Rae Carson
Year Published: 2012
Synopsis: Errik has been a prisoner--and alone--for a long, long time. He lives for the moment each day when the window of his dungeon cell shines a bit of light onto his bearded face.
But everything changes when he gets a new neighbor--a young girl with a voice as beautiful as the springrise.
They both know the rules: No singing. No speaking. Voices are dangerous. But they can't help themselves. And soon enough, Errik begins to remember himself, why he's here in this dark place, and why his captors will stop at nothing to ensure his silence.
Review: This was way too short. I want more Rae Carson! I'm very excited that I'll be reading The Bitter Kingdom soon!
Like with her trilogy, this novella creates such an interesting world. There are music mages and muses. And they are in prison. I want to know so much more about this world!
Rae Carson writes beautifully. She did an excellent job describing sounds in this novella.
I give this novella a 4/5 and recommend it to any Rae Carson fan like me looking to devour anything by her.
