The Caller by Juliet Marillier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It has only been a year, but Neryn has changed so much. She knew she had a canny skill, yet she had been taught as a child to hide it. After traveling to the secret rebel base, Shadowfell, she began training to be their secret weapon. Two of the fey Guardians had imparted their wisdom to hone her skill as a Caller, yet as winter approaches she is running out of time. The rebels are planning their battle for summer and Neryn still has to find the last two Guardians. Will she be able to complete these last two training sessions in time? Will she be able to save Alban from the overbearing King Keldec?
The Caller is the third and final book in the Shadowfell series. Readers who have been following Neryn’s training and maturation will be looking forward to the outcome of these last few tasks. The stakes are high and the pace of the book represents the actions the characters are required to perform. Marillier provides just enough review throughout the text for the readers who have been reading these stories as they are released, yet not too much that a reader that consumes all three quickly will be annoyed. This is the conclusion of this journey, but readers will have to reach the end to discover if Neryn and the rebels are successful or not.
