2014 book 210

Juliet Marillier's The Caller
The final book in the Shadowfell trilogy is a solid conclusion to the series, as Neryn works to complete her training in time for the rebellion to take place. Marillier does a good job showing growing civil unrest in a subtle way, and showing how hard it is not to just rush in (spoiling larger plans in motion). Really strong characterization and plot; the writing is a bit overwrought, especially at the end, but that kind of works in an epic fantasy setting? Definitely a good final chapter. A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released on September 9th.
