The Naming (Pellinor #1) by Alison Croggo
Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken there as a child after her family is destroyed in war. She is unaware that she possesses a powerful gift, one that marks her as a member of the School of Pellinor. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true heritage and extraordinary destiny unfold. Now she and her new teacher must survive a journey through a time and place where the forces they battle stem from the deepest recesses of otherworldly terror.
Alison Croggon’s epic fantasy, the first in the Books of Pellinor quartet, is a glittering saga steeped in the rich and complex landscape of Annar, a legendary world ripe for discovery.
The readalong will happen on May 22, when we will post our joint review of the book and open the floor for discussion and linkage to your posts/reviews.
The book seems to be readily available through the major retailers (Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes and Noble – both in print and electronic formats) if you wish to/can purchase it or hopefully – fingers crossed – you can also borrow it from your libraries. Please let us know if you want to take part on the readalong but are having difficulties finding a copy and we will try our best to offer alternatives.
Hope you will join us then!
And don’t forget! Our first readalong (Terrier by Tamora Pierce) happens next Wednesday, April 24. See you then!
