The Naming by Alison Croggon

The Naming is the first book in the Pellinor series by Alison Croggon. I found this story to be really enjoyable. I really liked the main characters, Maerad and Cadvan, and I like how they are written as having a relationship of teacher/student and being friends rather than a romantic couple. It's very refreshing when,… Continue reading The Naming by Alison Croggon
