The Lark And The Wren - Mercedes Lackey This book is inserting, you follow a young girl as she try to get free and to become a great bard. Facing challenges along the way and fighting to earn her place in the world.

The first time I read this book I loved it, this time it was just good. You quickly bond to Rune and want the best for her. But this book does something odd later on, it randomly switches to Talaysen and Robins POV for short segments, it isn't done well and was irritating at parts.

Also this felt like it should have been two books, Rune and Talaysen story and Rune, Talaysen, Robin, and Sional story. The second just ends too quickly and cleanly, and doesn't feel real. So over all it was a good book but not the best.
