    " Book 2 of a series. Gorgeous evocation of a world where acknowledgment of sacredness is woven into every part of life. Can't wait for book 3! "

    " I liked this one a lot better than the first in the series. A standalone if necessary, but it definitely gave it more depth to have read Gifts first. "

    " There's a lot that's predictable about the Annals of the Western Shore series, but the coming to terms of each character with their particular gift resonates well. This particular volume, Voices, is an interesting blend of a realistic depiction of an occupation by an enemy and a religious struggle between a so-called "pagan" religion being oppressed and attacked by the invading monotheists. There's also a strong commentary on the desire of invaders to supress existing culture, as all books are banned and decimated by the invaders while a dedicated few of the original settlement try to sustain the literature and stories of their age. "

    " a city under occupation must learn to live without books and becomes increasingly illiterate until special circumstances arise. I loved the portrayal of how learning to read empowers individuals and how the preservation of the written word can help a culuture survive oppression. "
