    One thought on “The Crow

    1. Echo on said:

      I loved The Naming I loved The Riddle with a few notable exceptions with parts near the end But I might as well be honest I did not like The Crow It took me a long time to pick this one up and read it, and I ll be honest, it was because of the lack of Cadvan and Maerad I really got wrapped up in their story, and I was none too pleased to realize they weren t in The Crow at all, but I decided to give it a chance anyway, and I was disappointed In comparison to Cadvan and Maerad, the characters fel [...]

    2. Lauren on said:

      When I began this book I was disappointed that we d be following Hem rather than his sister Maerad But then I stopped being disappointed, both because Hem is at least as interesting as Maerad, and because his part of the story is just as important as hers in fact, it s fully half of the story Who knew It was pretty cut and dried in the first two books Maerad was the one in the prophecy, and Hem was secondary But no And watching Hem grow up in the course of the few months described in this novel [...]

    3. Allison on said:

      The Crow is very different from the first two books of the Pellinor series It switches completely to Hem s point of view, going back to follow him through his experiences adjusting to the School in Turbansk, coming to love the city, and realizing the impact of the advancing war with the Dark At first, I found it hard to switch from Maerad s perspective to Hem s My feeling at the end of The Riddle was an urgency to continue immediately to find out what was going to happen next only to discover I [...]

    4. Chris on said:

      All novels, and especially fantasy novels, provide the opportunity for authors to create their own worlds in which to place their characters, and in large measure what makes the story convincing is the plausibility of that secondary world Croggon s land of Edil Amarandh is given credible substance by its characters interaction with the geography, climate and changing seasons, and the success of The Crow and the other Pellinor books is enhanced by the impression that Maerad and Hem, Cadvan and Sa [...]

      Third book tears at your heartAt first I did not like Hem He was only a side character in the first two books Why was this whole third book his adventure But oh what an adventure it was Tour out my heart and stomped on it for good measure Now that is how to write a good adventure story.

    7. Cassy on said:

      The Crow is the third in the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon While it was an interesting book, and something that was certainly needed for the series, I didn t enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the previous two.I think a large reason that I didn t enjoy this one as much was that it was concentrating fully on Hem Hem is a fun and interesting character, but he is one I have care little about for the series Maerad was with him only briefly and while he is talked about, we don t learn much about him S [...]

      Today s post is on The Crow by Alison Croggon and it is the third book of Pellinor It is 511 pages long including maps, notes, and appendices It is published by Candlewick Press The cover has the three main characters on it with Hem, who has a white crow on his shoulder, facing the distance to the side of the reader, Zelika looking at Hem, and Saliman looking the Iron Tower The cover is very telling about the plot of the story The intended reader is all young adults, not just girls, but anyone w [...]

    9. Iris on said:

      I really wish I didn t have to read so many thick books of this to find out what happens to the characters.I really like the characters, but other than that, I really couldn t care less.The writing style is tedious, and I don t even know what s going on half the time Honestly that s probably because every now and then I zone out and don t pay attention, but I do that because it s written super tediously Also, sometimes its just confusing there s a couple scenes that I read over and over again, a [...]

    10. J.Elle on said:

      This is the third installment of four Why they refer to it above as a trilogy, I couldn t tell you, other than to say they are wrong I enjoyed the first two novels although I have found that the beginnings of each are slightly hard to get into Initially, I feel overwhelmed and slightly bored at the same time, until suddenly I am hooked It always sneaks up on me so I couldn t tell you exactly when it happens, only that it always does So, don t give up if it seems too hard or uninteresting at firs [...]

    11. Selena on said:

      I absolutley loved this book I was personelly getting pretty bored of Maerad, and switching to Hem s view was interesting I got really caught up in this book, and it only took me a couple of hours to read I didn t like how you started to love some of the characters, and they just die Like, how much of the book was devoted to Hem searching for Zelika I was really mad when Hem finally found her in Den Raven, and he was like, oh, her hair is shorter, it will grow backd then it turns out to be her b [...]

    12. Nicol on said:

      I knew that The Crow was going to follow Hem, so I was not so sure I would like it, I also feared that Hem would turn out to be evil I loved this book, to follow Hem growing up and in the midst of war, was enthralling I really enjoyed the way his character matured, which was very different from Maerad As much as I am interested in the relationship between Cadavan and Maerad, I have to say that I enjoyed Hem and Saliman Also, the snouts were incredibly interesting Irk and Hem s relationship was [...]

      Two small figures toil towards the Dark Tower, the center of the evil in the land, disguised as servants of the evil powersThe dark, oppressive mood of Tolkien s final book of the Lord of the Rings is also felt in this third installment of the Pellinor Trilogy Actually, it will have four parts, for the final episode, The Singing, is not yet published In the same way that Sam and Frodo compared their grim journey to a book with chapters that you did not want to read, there are some times that you [...]

    14. Tracy on said:

      I really wasn t sure I was going to like this book at all After all, the first two books were primarily about Maerad, and although there were some parts about the writing of that I found a bit odd, I was still interested enough But now, to change to a book all about her brother, who we briefly met, barely got to know in the other book, well, needless to say, I was a bit worried Intriguingly, I think this was my favorite of the three so far There were points I thought it dragged, just certain sce [...]

    15. Laura on said:

      Although not as enjoyable as the first two books inthe series this was a good book I found it a bit repetative and I just kept waiting for the poor boy to get something accomplished I have to say, though, that my love of the series is helped tremendously by Cadvan, who is not in this book at all its like The Lord of the Rings without Legolas, Aragorn and or Gandalf I cannot say that Alison Crogon is as great a writer or scholar as Tolkien but she makes a briliant effort, and I hope the the fourt [...]

    16. Jenne on said:

      Having read the reviews, I was prepared for this book to follow Hem s story instead of following his sister our heroine, Maerad, from the first two books Hem does a lot of growing up very fast It will be interesting to see how his transformation from child to adult affects his sister and her quest I would have liked to have read of his troubles with the other students at the beginning, though, rather than the fights being alluded to I think that would have rounded out his character a little an [...]

    17. Kerry on said:

      Great third book in the Pellinor series In this one Hem is the focus of the story and his journey to help his sister Maerad on her quest to help save the light Although I missed Maerad and Cadvan in this one, I thoroughly enjoyed the story Hem s journey is difficult, thrilling and fraught with danger He battles on with support from his friends and his crow, becoming the hero of his own story.

    18. Jennifer on said:

      Good book so far Is different from the first two in the series I felt it was a little harder to get into at first because the first two books of the series revolved around Maraed and this one focuses on Hem So it takes a little getting used to walking side by side with a whole new character.

    19. Suzan on said:

      Loved it I was wishing my son was reading this series as I plowed through this Login Hem s story, what a great character Anxiously leaping into book four Loving this series Thanks Jenn and Erin

    20. Tammie on said:

      Loved it It was from Hem s point of view instead of Maerad s which was different from all the others in the series.

    21. Joey Woolfardis on said:

      Short and quick review before I re read and re review at a later date Even from the blurb I can t remember much Book as a whole probably not great too long But the series good.

    22. Noor (heretherebebooks) on said:

      This is my favourite book in the series so far Everything about it just really worked for me First of all, I really liked the setting of Turbansk It was nice to have an entire book in which the setting and characters and culture were not eurocentric for the most part.The worldbuilding in general throughout the series is phenomenal and creates such a strong sense of verisimilitude, especially with the songs and epics at the beginning of each part that establish an intricate history that fringes t [...]

      Croggon, Alison The Crow, 483 pages Candlewick Press Language G, Sexual Content G, Violence PG 13 The Crow is the third installment in the series the Books of Pellinor It tells the next segment of the tale from the point of view of Hem, a young man who has been an orphan and friendless until meeting his sister Maerad, the protagonist of the series, in a past installment But while Maerad traveled north, Hem went south with his mentor to learn how to use his gift to its full potential But war is a [...]

    24. Devilish on said:

      This book, the third in the series, is particularly dark, with the feeling of threat and unease woven throughout the second half of the book Some of the imagery is particularly unsettling, especially that regarding children, with sections that reminded me of Nazi concentration camps I say this because this book is listed in the Junior section of my local library, which I m not entirely sure is suitable, I would suggest Young Adult would be appropriate.With all of that said, I still enjoyed the [...]

    25. Emma Rose Ribbons on said:

      Extremely gloomy, even than the second book, and I won t be rereading this for sure The hero witnesses war first hand and it s absolutely horrible I m going to finish the series, I love the characters and the story s great but, gosh, what a journey It s taking all my willpower to get through this.

    26. Bri Anderson on said:

      This took me awhile to get through It wasn t quite as good as the first two This is all about secondary characters from the first and I sadly did not care as much about them nor was I interested in their adventure I will definitely stick it out and finish the series because it primes to return some of the other, favored characters Still a good series, just a lull in the fun.

    27. Glorianne on said:

      I absolutely loved the first two books in this series, but this one was so dark and so full of evil It was really hard to get through the extensive chapters about the child armies and I felt like the book as a whole was slow because everything that happened was so depressing, without the humor and spunk that the first two had to lighten it.

    28. Kaila on said:

      The third book did not disappoint me, and I rather enjoyed seeing Hem develop as a character He really grew on me and I wasn t quite sure if I would really care for him Looking forward to the next book.

    29. Anna G. on said:

      rate 4.5 ally enjoyed this bookt predictable in my opinion and its a well written solid story that is multifaceted ry good character development and growth just really like the story all around
