Nov 14, Sauerkirsche rated it did not like it Shelves: Although 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 more depth.

The Singing is the fourth and last novel in Alison Croggon ‘s Pellinor series. These books are absolutely stellar – the prose throughout them is consistently little short of exquisite, the scope of the story is epic and immersive, and the characters are certainly some of the most unique and realistic I’ve met.
