Nice. I've both sets of works mentioned as winners in the pile. Athough I am just finishing up Rai-kirah, so perhaps I'll read Cashore. Thanks for these notices.

A YA novel won the Mythopoeic Award for Children's Literature?

Yes. Some might say it is to be expected ;-)

Never heard of the Carol Berg duology though.
