Publisher's Summary

Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken there as a child when her family is destroyed in war. She is unaware that she possesses a powerful gift, a gift that marks her as a member of the School of Pellinor. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true heritage and extraordinary destiny unfolds. Now she and her teacher, Cadvan, must survive a punishing and uncertain journey through a time and place where the dark forces they battle with stem from the deepest recesses of other-worldly terror.

Where does The Gift rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Gift and all four of the Pellinor books are a must read or a must listen to. Alison Croggon writes these books as she writes poetry:her language sings with exquisite beauty. Eloise Oxer is a brilliant narrator and brings the stories to life perfectly. These are my favourite novels of all time. Enjoy!
