I regret downloading this version. He reunites with Saliman and, broken-hearted, starts the perilous search for his sister.

Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken alixon as a child when her family is destroyed in war. Later, Hem goes to find the tree-man and asks him what the thing was, and the tree-man tells him it was part of the Treesong, and that he couldn’t touch it.

He goes from a fruit-stealing, trouble-making ragamuffin to a responsible young mage in just a few hundred pages, and in some ways he does it more gracefully than his sister. Luckily this book did not disappoint. Now that is how to write a good adventure story.

Storm Glass Harbinger, Book 1 By: I recommend “The Crow” to anyone who enjoys a great series of books that are not as technological as today. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Book two is alieon definite close second but I found some bits annoying in that book whereas this one was only enjoyable. The characters mostly stay in the city of Turbansk but are otherwise traveling throughout the country.


I didn’t think Maerad and Cadvan should end up Together.

The Crow is the third in the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon. I have rarely if ever given an audio book a bad review and to be fair I feel that this narrator is not so much bad at narration but was just not right for this story. I say this because this book is listed in the Junior section of my local library, which I’m not entirely sure is crogogn, I would suggest Young Adult would be more appropriate.

This book definitely took a turn for the darker, but I have to say I really allison it.

Everything about it just really worked for me. He says that Hem was part of the Treesong, and that he was the player.
