Orphan’s Song, Book One of The Songkeeper Chronicles by Gillian Bronte Adams is a wonderful tale of adventure, mystery, and self-discovery. It follows the story of two children. Firstly, Birdie who is an orphan girl living under the care of an inn keeper. She hears things normal people don't. Some call it a gift, others a curse, but whatever it may be, this ability is about to throw Birdie into an adventure that will lead her to heights of happiness, but also into depths of despair. Ultimately, the adventure will reveal to her things about herself that will only compel deeper questions and much more mystery. The second character is Ky, a young orphan boy living on the streets. He steals for a living and is a part of a deeper underground organization of orphans. He is content, though not happy with life, but when the leader of the underground brings him into a plot that puts the underground along with the lives of the orphans at risk, Ky will be forced to make a decision between what he believes to be right and what he is told is right. The choices made by both orphans will place them on a collision course. Together they must fight the evil in the world as well as the darkness within themselves.

This is a fabulous story filled with intriguing and lovable characters. Whether it be a talking cat, a mysterious peddler, two bumbling dwarves, or rough and tough orphans, the reader is bound to fall in love with them all. I enjoyed this book tremendously and am looking forward to reading more from Gillian Bronte Adams. She is one of my new favorite authors and I am excited to be one of the first to watch her potential career as a great author take shape. If you are a fantasy fan, this is the book for you.
