She told me She liked the cover?!? The book ends with Maerad contemplating what to do next with her life, with Cadvan offering to take her to Lirigon and with the usual of Alison’s historical appendices.

The stunning conclusion to the epic Pellinor series—four books telling an extraordinary tale of another world. Adventure, songs, magic, war, and hidden Love Her character got rushed because of the inclusion of Hem’s The final book in the Pellinor series was almost perfect.


The characters were enjoyable as was the world and the storytelling. I even flipped over the last page as I read it making sure that I hadn’t missed something or that there crobgon been some sort of misprint.


Regret, first of all, because there was a sense of closure on the whole series: The last one u can get at the library or something i think u will want to finish them! The characters almost always avoid the cities for fear of being discovered. Allison has a very poetic, lyrical language, and is master of bringing her thoughts to life.

Who would I recommend it to? Overall this series was mostly harmless, and a decent YA fantasy series that hits all of the usual tropes but in an engaging way. I especially loved the relationships that grew out of these final weeks of the saga. None of the occupants are able to leave because of an unnatural snowstorm that brings extreme and fatal cold.

I wanted to know why Cadvan loved Maerad, and when he started to love her, and why he hadn’t said anything before. Til Amon prepares to defend themselves against the Black Army, which they believe will arrive shortly. Maerad believes it is imperative that she find her brother soon, as she senses he has a part to play in the Treesong as well.

I would think ages and up would be fine to read these books. Also, Lirigon was alerted and saved well in time, thanks to Irc and Hem is invited upon by Nelac Cadvan and Saliman’s teacher to learn the art of Healing from him.

I watched the evolution of their relationship and waited breathlessly for them to admit their love for each other. We are experiencing technical difficulties. The books starts with Hem and Mearad looking for each other. I simply can’t review this book without telling you about my disappointment of the way the sub-plot of Cadvan and Maerad’s story ends.

As always though this is no easy feat and they must face danger, darkness and fight to save themselves and those they love. Mostly because Maerad was just the same thoughts simging insecurities over and over and over cgoggon until the end battle.

But satisfaction, too, was there: It’s definitely worth the time.
