The Gift is in my honest opinion, an amazing book. I am an avid fantasy reader and i have to admit, this book, and the rest of the books of pellinor are some of my favourites.
Alison Croggon's poetic skills shine through this novel from the lays and songs she writes to the rest of the book. I could not put it down. The world of Pellinor (called Annar and the seven kingdoms) is beautifully described and the use of magic through song and people like The Bard of Pellinor is very original (in my opinion). The characters are wonderfully written and portayed, theres some youll love and some youll loathe. A classic book from an amazing author.
