The SingingThe climactic volume of the epic uartet follows the Bards of Edil Amarandh on a vital uest to merge their powers against a nameless evil In an increasingly battle ravaged land Maerad Cadvan and Hem desperately search for one another as they make their separate jou. After a significant detour in The Crow The Singing returns to Maerad and the story then switches back and forth between Hem and Maerad as they search for each other I enjoyed the return to Innail the battle with the Landrost and the warmer friendship between Maerad and Cadvan Hem's portions were interesting as well Saliman the traveling show the moving army of the Dark There is plenty of magic and plenty of dangerI enjoyed it but the first two are still my favorites I can't uite put my finger on why Mainly I think my hopes and expectations were too high but it may also have been the effect of switching back and forth between the two characters where the previous books were always focused on one One of the things hampering my 5 star level enjoyment was that the closer we got to the end the remote Maerad became to everyone around her This is just when I felt like she should be getting closer to others and coming to greater understanding of herself her magic and the world around her as she did in the Riddle but now it should be in a broader sense than before Instead view spoilershe is no longer capable of thought so overwhelmed by magic that she can't even open her eyes She struggles with herself and her visions a lot than interacting with Cadvan He just looks at her with concern a lot and she isn't even aware he's there The end of the book mostly just happens to her as magic takes control and Cadvan sits by hide spoiler

D legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together they have the power to defeat the Nameless One Can brother and sister find each other in time to fight this all powerful enemy and are they strong enough even reunited to defeat him before all is los. This book ends the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon I thought she did a good job at ending the series She creates a world that is believable and has you uestioning whether or not this world did exist here before our history started The bad guys are really really bad But the hero and heroine especially the heroine are characters who uestion and doubt their abilities in a believable way The outcome for a lot of it is predictable if you've read tons of fantasy and I have But the book still kept me on the edge of my seat while I was reading itShe's a very talented author and I hope to find books from her in the near future I will definitely recommend that my children read these books as long as they are interested in fantasy

One of the first series in a long time where I can say I was honestly profoundly sad to see it end These books are absolutely stellar the prose throughout them is consistently little short of exuisite the scope of the story is epic and immersive and the characters are certainly some of the most uniue and realistic I've met I was completely enthralled throughout the uartet and The Singing is possibly the best of them all I read it in three hours this afternoon completely unable to put it downAlthough I found the way the third book was narrated exclusively from Hem's viewpoint a little bit disappointing I felt that the alternation between Maerad and Hem worked very well in this installment and the tidbits from Cadvan and a few of the other characters added even depth The story was full of excitement and adventure love and loss discovery and rediscovery emotion and a host of smaller twists and details that enhanced the realism and helped draw the reader even deeper The entire series has been completely enthralling I was entranced by the way Maerad's entire journey was influenced by darkness nothing works out perfectly a lot of things go wrong she makes many bad choices and does harm sometimes irreparable to people she cares about but the story never grows too bleak The lack of ease with which Maerad comes into her powers unravels the Treesong finds her brother and defeats the Winterking and The Nameless One and grows from a girl into a woman weaves the reader's interest inseparably into the story The times of despair and difficulty make the reader empathize but hope is never lost They pull through in the end and have enough pure luck along the way to hold the reader's keen interest And the ever changing dimensions of Maerad and Cadvan's relationship is one the hinges of my attraction to the books I must say I really admire Cadvan's patience but also the way he's imperfect even when he grows so rightfully angry at Maerad he never lets it permanently stand in the way of their friendship These are astonishingly well developed fictional people Both Hem and Maerad acuit themselves very believably identifiably and endearinglyThe whole tale is epic a masterpiece of prose with some pretty decent poetry and interesting history thrown in and the Books of Pellinor are some of the best I've ever read I'm so disappointed there aren't any
