The Singing by Alison Croggon

Posted: January 12, 2010 in Adventure, Fantasy, good and evil

This final novel of the Book of Pellinor quartet sums up the high fantasy of the brother/sister team of Hem and Maerad, with an emphasis on Maerad’s adventures with Cadvan to find the treesong. She saves the fortress city of Innail from the impressingly evil Landrost at great peril. The erotic power of an even greater evil is always on her mind. She continues her transformation from slave to savior. I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure, comic relief, battles and freshly drawn fantasy with its own history and poetry and tales. Alison is a great storyteller and poet and linguist. Fantasy readers are going to be so happy with this quartet of books!
Books of the Quartet: The Naming, The Riddle, The Crow, The Singing.

    I haven't. But this one was quite good, and I liked her attempt at a fine high fantasy with unique characteristics in their world. Joan
