Didn't love it, didn't hate it; definitely needs a stroke more originality. Also, I hate it when non-linguists try to make up a language. Give it up, people!! Just because Tolkein did it, doesn't mean you can. Oh, yeah, that's right: Tolkein was a linguist. That aside, I was interested enough to read the 2nd book. ( )

Let me tell you: I have read A LOT of Lord of the Rings-inspired teen fantasy, and this series truly stands out. ( )

The few things in this book I couldn't compare directly to Tolkien could be compared directly to Paolini (who has, himself, borrowed a lot), Lewis, Rowling, and even Star Wars. Nonetheless, it was a fun read. Once I got over the distraction of the parallels, I enjoyed it - I actually made a game of making sure I could make all of the proper connections. :P I recommend this if you've no problem with a little lack of originality - it's like hearing all the great fantasy stories reborn and combined, with subtle differences.

This is the first book in The Books of Pellinor series, which is a four book series. I absolutely loved this book. It is such a great epic fantasy adventure with a very classic feel to it. I loved the world with the Bards and the classic light vs dark themes here. I definitely plan on continuing with this series!

Maerad is a slave living in an unforgiving settlement who has been taught to sing and play and is very talented at these musical arts. Then one day she discovers Cadvan in the stable and he offers to help her escape slavery. However, as a result Maerad learns her true identity and ends up embroiled in the politics and dangers associated with the great Bards of Lirigon.

I listened to this on audiobook and it was well done. I didn’t like Maerad’s speaking voice, it sounded pinched...but we don’t actually hear Maerad talk a ton since most of the narration is in her head. Aside from that I enjoyed listening to this on audiobook.

This book had such a wonderful classic adventure fantasy feel to it. I enjoyed the complex characters, they are all well done (even the side characters). I also really enjoyed the adventure and all the battles and danger our characters have to fight through. The world-building is amazing and I loved the history of the Bards and the light vs dark theme to the story.

Overall this was an amazing adventure fantasy and I look forward to continuing the series. I would recommend to those who enjoy epic adventure fantasy and detailed world-building. ( )

This world makes you want to be a heroine on hard cold days. It such an odd treasure. Maerad is helpless and not so much, there's more to her than meets the eye but she still finds so much comfort in a good meal and a hot bath after all the miserable in her life. ( )
