Alison Croggon's enthralling Books of Pellinor series nears its climax in The Crow, which follows on from The Riddle, as Maerad's younger brother is forced to confront the powers of the Dark.
The penultimate instalment in the Books of Pellinor series, The Crow focuses on Maerad's brother, Hem, as he wages his own battle against the forces of the Dark. This compelling novel will delight fans of Tolkien, Ursula le Guin and Tamora Pierce.
Whilst his sister, Maerad, pursues her dangerous destiny in the frozen North, Hem is sent south to Turbansk for his own safety. 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. He agrees to help fight the Nameless One by spying on the child armies of the Dark. Now Hem has a vision - he too has a part to play in Maerad's quest for the Treesong. But Zelika has been captured by the child army. Hem chooses to put his destiny on hold and try to rescue her from the Dark stronghold ... with perilous consequences.

Excellent. A bit of a shock to find you follow Hem/Cai in the book but it's as good as the previous 2, full of suspence with moments that make you laugh to lighten it up.
This book develops the character of Hem/Cai, although initilly thrown in at the deep end Hem battles through all his struggles until his home crumbles and his world is turne upside down, I was not as keen to follow... More
Great series, would recommend this to anybody, young and old.
