The Caller (Shadowfell, #3) by Juliet Marillier
This is an excellent final book in a fabulous young adult fantasy trilogy. Unlike some trilogies that start out with a bang and end with a whimper, this trilogy is consistently excellent all the way through. Neryn has only a little time to complete her training before the planned rebellion and so she goes to see the White Lady, the third Guardian, to learn the magic of the air with only Whisper, the owl-like Good Folk as her companion. The story alternates between Neryn and Flint as they both struggle to keep the plan of the rebellion moving forward so that they can end the cruel, tyrannical reign of King Keldec and his evil wife, Varda. Neryn is loyal, good and brave and always puts the kingdom first. Action, adventure, romance, magic and intriguing plot twists abound in this satisfying last book of the trilogy. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
