The Caller by Juliet Marillier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Description: Neryn has made a long journey to perfect her skills as a Caller. She has learned the wisdom of water and of earth; she has journeyed to the remote isles of the west and the forbidding mountains of the north. Now, Neryn must travel in Alban's freezing winter to seek the mysterious White Lady, Guardian of Air. For only when Neryn has been trained by all four Guardians will she be ready to play her role in toppling the tyrannical King Keldec.
But the White Lady is not what she seems. Trapped with Whisper, her fey protector, Neryn is unable to send word to her beloved Flint, who is in danger of being exposed as a double agent. When a new threat looms and the rebellion is in jeopardy, Neryn must enter Keldec's court, where one false move could see her culled. She must stand up against forces more powerful than any she has confronted before, and face losses that could break her heart.
The Caller is the thrilling conclusion to the Shadowfell trilogy.
My thoughts: This book is a wonderful end to a great series!
The Shadowfell series has captured my interest and imagination from the first book. I have looked forward to each and every installment of the trilogy. The Caller lived up to my expectations.
Neryn's quest to train from the guardians takes on new urgency as the mid-summer celebration/rebellion comes closer. She knows her training is not complete and wants to make sure that she is responsible and compassionate as she calls the fey beings to the aid of the rebellion.
I loved the word building and descriptions. Juliet Marillier has written an epic fantasy trilogy. The story is one that will remain with me for a long time and will be one of my favorites.
