A Joy to Read,
This review is from: The Gift (Pellinor Trilogy) (Paperback)
I remember reading this book when I was thirteen, and adored it. Now I am nearly twenty and this first book of Pellinor still sticks in my mind, with the strong female protagonist and her aide. I will admit that I did not enjoy the others as much, for this one was the best in the series. I have re-read the book twice since and I can still remember it clearly. It was difficult for a teenage fantasy fan to find a fantasy story not set in the modern day with a link to another world and made it quite refreshing.
As an aspiring writer myself, I took a lot from this book, and Croggon's poetic language is a joy to read along with her vivid descriptions of the land and the people.
