Songstone by Lena Goldfinch (summary and giveaway)

My bloggy friend Amber from Seasons of Humility lined up some of us to highlight an exciting new YA novel by Lena Goldfinch. Today I’m sharing a summary of the book and a link to a special giveaway. It’s open to all so please be sure to enter!

I haven’t read this story, but here’s the summary Amber shared with me: Kita can meld song into stone. In a world with no written word, storytelling—the ability to meld (or magically impress) song into stone—is greatly honored. The village honors her master as their medicine man, but Kita knows he’s secretly a sorcerer who practices black magic. She fears he’ll use her beautiful gift for a killing spell, so she conceals it from him. Each day, his magic tightens around her neck like a rope. His spells blind the villagers, so they can’t see him for what he really is.

Not that anyone would want to help her. She was found in the forest as a baby and would have died if a village girl hadn’t brought her home. But the villagers saw Kita’s unusual coloring and decided she belonged to the mysterious tribe who lives in the forests of the volcano, a people feared for their mystical powers. So they fear her too. Now seventeen, she can barely admit her deepest longing: to know who she really is and where she belongs.

Then Pono, a young journeyman, arrives from the other side of the island. He’s come to fulfill a pact between their villages: to escort a storyteller back to his village—a storyteller who’ll be chosen at the great assembly. Finally, in Pono, Kita sees her one slim chance at freedom and she’ll risk her life to take it.
