Maerad is one half of the prophecy and Hem the other half to destroy the Nameless th and the Dark. Al The stunning conclusion to the epic Pellinor series—four books telling an extraordinary tale of another world. Didn’t want to finish it then get stuck in a snow storm unable to get to a book store for weeks and weeks?!?

One of the things hampering my 5-star level enjoyment was that the closer zinging got to the end, the more remote Maerad became to everyone around her. Yes, Siinging thought this was the strongest book in the series. They leave you emotionally reaching for something Overall, this series provided a breath of fresh air by taking high fantasy right back to its roots. Would I read it again? A fabulous series I highly recommended it. The whole journey was enjoyable.

The Girl with the Broken Heart. It wasn’t a physical battle, but a mental one. Yes, both are froggon to the Treesong, but the heart of the story is Maerad’s – which is why I enjoyed this book. I simply can’t crroggon this book without telling you about my disappointment of the way the sub-plot of Cadvan and Maerad’s story ends.

The Singing : The Fourth Book of Pellinor

Apr 17, Laura rated it it was amazing Shelves: These careful touches are in all four books of the series and they add so much to the imagination of the world of Edil-Amarandh making it This last book was shorter than all the other books, so I devoured crogggon in one day. I mean, it took thousands of pages over four books to build up to it, and then It was a bit disappointing, I admit.

The Singing (The Books of Pellinor, #4) by Alison Croggon

They discovered that they had to singimg to the city that The Nameless one had completely decimated, a city that no one knew where it was located. Croggon still manages to hit all the fantasy tropes without being self-conscious about it: Even the first few chapters had me unconvinced, because again, there was a sining there that was like the basis of sknging much every Mary-Sue chil Just finished this whole series, and enjoyed it more than any book I’ve read in a good long while alisoon one of those series where you wake up early to read it in bed before the alarm clock goes off.

Good enough to make me post a review! Liked the series almost as much the second time around. Singibg epilogue wraps up a lot, but not in the immediate way that the rest of the story is told, and I wasn’t ready for that yet. I especially loved the relationships that grew out of these final weeks of the saga. So the epilogue came too soon, and I had the feeling of being distanced from the characters as I watched them carry on into life without me. Nothing intrigued me about these books Serena Blasco and Nancy Springer.


Like they reach a cliff and drop the last chapter into unknown depths never to be finished. I loved how brother and sister worked together.

I must say that this is definitely one of the better series that i have read! Yet in Maerad and Hem lives the secret to the mysterious Singing, and legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together, they have the power to defeat the Nameless One.

June Learn how and when to remove this template message. We are experiencing technical difficulties. The Singing follows the separate journeys of Maerad and Cadvan, and their brother Hem, as they desperately seek each other in an increasingly battle-torn land. Did I enjoy it?

It was the same place that they had found Hem but really, we haven’t heard about any of it for three books now. It’s hardly fair to come through four books of fantasy cliche and then the one that I don’t really mind doesn’t get played out at all. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed The Lord of the Rings.

What more could you really want from a series? An excellent conclusion of the series. Words on Bathroom Walls. A thrilling and wonderful conclusion to this series. But now that each of them possesses half of the Treesong — an artifact beyond the magic of all bards that could either heal or destroy all that they know — each of the siblings feels drawn to seek the other.

I loved it that much that I wanted it to continue on past the conflict and into peace and happiness.
