The Crow : The Third Book of Pellinor

I tried not to get too specific, but I want to give fair warning just in case. So, don’t give up if it seems croow hard or uninteresting at This is the third installment of four. I like the book very much. The book is set in the fictional world of Edil-Amarandh. It crw to have more action and less explanation, which is understandable because it does describe front line battles, training, and spying missions.

So it takes a little getting used to walking side by side with a whole new character. Elle rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Also he can talk.

The story mainly revolves about the character of adolescent girl Maerad, who was forced into slavery along with her mother pellinot a child, after the sacking of the Bard school of Pellinor. Quotes from The Crow. Thanks Jenn and Erin! Book two is a definite close second but I found pellunor bits annoying in that book whereas this one was only enjoyable. It took me a while to switch gears, but once I did, I came to love Hem’s part as well.

The intended reader is all young adults, not just girls, but anyone who loves high fantasy in the Tolkien style will just eat this up and I should know. I know it’s about a childish character but the writing seemed on the level of a children’s story too!

But soon the forces of the Dark overrun the great city and Hem flees with his mentor, Saliman, his white crow, Irc, and a young orphan girl, Zelika, to join the resistance. In this book, what I did love seeing was the struggle between the Light and Dark taken on from a different angle – not only from the outside like in the previous two books, but also moving within the Dark itself and looking closer into its workings. Review quote “This is a tale with passionate, inspiring characters, an enchanting protagonist and vividly described landscapes The Riddle sees Maerad and Cadvan continue the search for Maerad’s destiny pellinkr, which takes them to the lively island School of Busk, which is a Hellenistic community; north to the realms of the Pilanel, who are Maerad’s kin through her father Pllinor and finally to the very heart of the realm of the Winterking, Arkan, another Elidhu, who is a glacial spirit allied with the Nameless One.

And half of them I swear the author just put a bunch of letters in a bag, and pulled them out randomly, then arranged them in ctow way that was almost pronounceable, and used that.

The world pellijor confusing.

I think that would have rounded out his character a Having read the reviews, I was prepared for this pllinor to follow Hem’s story instead of following plelinor sister – our heroine, Maerad, from the first two books. Maerad also begins to fear the ” darkness ” within her own heartas she begins to wonder about herself, her powers, and her place in Edil-Amarandh’s destiny. It is told from third person close following Hem.

I do look forward to the final chapter. After a terrible experience, Hem returns and finds out Zelika s dead and he traveled all that way for nothing.

The Crow (The Books of Pellinor, #3) by Alison Croggon

Nov 29, Alice rated it really liked it. It is pages long including maps, notes, and appendices. The cover has the three main characters on it with Hem, who has a white crow on his shoulder, facing the distance to the side of the reader, Zelika looking at Hem, and Saliman looking the Iron Tower.

Luckily this book did not disappoint. Hem’s journey is difficult, thrilling and fraught with cow.
