School Library Journal(April 1, 2004; 0-439-55478-0) Gr 6 Up-In Tremaris, a world with three moons, Chanters are sorcerers who can sing nine different types of magic. Calwyn, a soon-to-be priestess of "icecall" in the women-ruled Antaris, longs to travel beyond the wall that separates her country from the rest of the world.

Orphaned as an infant, her father unknown, Calwyn sings her chantments and tends bees; Antaris is the only world she has ever known.
