Publisher's Summary

In an increasingly battle-ravaged land, Maerad, Cadvan, and Hem desperately search for one another as they make their separate journeys. The Black Army is advancing north, and even as Maerad faces a mighty confrontation with the Landrost to save Innail, all of the Seven Kingdoms are threatened with bitter and devastating defeat.

Yet in Maerad and Hem lives the secret to the mysterious Singing, and legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together, they have the power to defeat the Nameless One. Can brother and sister find each other in time to fight this all-powerful enemy, and are they strong enough - even reunited - to defeat him before all is lost?

The climactic volume of the epic quartet follows the Bards of Edil-Amarandh on a vital quest to merge their powers against a nameless evil.

    "The Singing: Glorious Finally To The Pellinor Tale"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Singing to be better than the print version?

    I love a good story wether listening or reading. I will say this though, Eloise Oxer makes this a book I'd rather listen to than read. She is truly talented and has a real gift for story telling and has an uncanny ability to enrapture an audience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I could never choose one favorite character! I love Maerad for her strength and willingness to adapt, Cadvan for his mystery, Hem for his tenacity and ingenuity, Saliman for his charisma and beauty, and I just simply love all of the characters that came along even the ones that only had a short "cameo" appearance! Alison Croggon has a gift of character and world building that is simply amazing!


    Which character – as performed by Eloise Oxer – was your favorite?

    Saliman, I don't know why except she made him sound beautiful, between Alison Croggon's descriptive ability and Eloise Oxer's bringing him to life, he just is one of my favorites, Maerad is next as she simply sounded like she did in my head the first time I read these stories.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are several moments in this story that had me sniffling, This is such a well written story and it is so well told that it is easy to get caught up in the telling!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the final story of the Pellinor series and I have to say it is one of my favorite stories to read or listen to. So folks treat yourself to a good tale, I think you will definitely find it worth it!

    Story
    "A Masterful Conclusion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Singing to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio version gives the story a little more depth. However I have never actually read the print version, so I honestly couldn't say whether the audio was better than the print.


    What other book might you compare The Singing to and why?

    The Singing seems to be comparable to many different books. The other three books in the series I could say right off the bat which book to compare it to. Like The Crow, I'd say that was comparable to Watership Down. But the Singing combined all of the previous stories and put it together into one fantastical conclusion. But perhaps I might be so bold as to compare it to The Lord of the Rings. The tales of adventure and magerie all combine into a such a beautiful tale of friendship, love, and courage.


    Have you listened to any of Eloise Oxer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The only performances I've heard of her's are the first two books in this series. I would say this was on the same level as those. When I first starting to listen to the book, I regretfully had the thought, "Hm...I think they could have picked someone else better for the story." However within about 15 - 30 minutes, I realized no one could have given the performance and that depth quite so well. I think Eloise Oxer was perfect for the role.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh this book made me laugh, it made me want to go on an adventure. After finishing it, I wanted to go out into the wilderness, discover my inner bardness, and go start fighting evil. Unfortunately I could not do this, but I really wanted to. It was amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a brilliant read. The literature is of some of the highest quality. The performance was right up along there, too. Altogether, I would listen to it again.
