Synopsis of The Riddle (Pellinor Series #2)

Maerad is a girl with a tragic and bitter past, but her powers grow stronger by the day. Now she and her mentor, Cadvan, hunted by both the Light and the Dark, must unravel the Riddle of the Treesong before their fractured kingdom erupts in chaos. The quest leads Maerad over terrifying seas and vast stretches of glacial wilderness, ever closer to the seductive Winterking - ally of her most powerful enemy, the Nameless One. Trapped in the Winterking's icy realm, Maerad must confront what she has suspected all along: that she is the greatest riddle of all. A sequel to The Naming, this second audiobook in a captivating quartet about the ancient world of Edil-Amarandh is a sweeping epic, listeners won't soon forget.

A young woman embraces her power - and her destiny - as the thrilling quest begun in The Naming continues!

Children's Literature

Alison Croggon writes fantasy novels that keep you on the edge of your chair. Throughout the book, Maerad, the protagonist, is on a quest to find the answer to the Riddle of the Treesong. Although the description of the terrain and various characters gets tedious at times, it helps the reader visualize unusual surrounding areas and minor characters. Maerad, only sixteen, has suffered many more hardships than most people twice her age. Her mentor, teacher, and friend, Cadvan helps Maerad learn magical tricks that will help save her life, as well as help her assume her rightful place in various situations. Once she saved her life and others by singing a lullaby to a ferocious stormdog. She saves her own life from the Winterking by changing her body into a wolf. Many exciting and dangerous experiences follow Maerad's quest to find the answer to the Riddle of the Treesong. Maerad appears almost too good to be true, until during a confrontation she kills another Bard, which is against the society's rules. Cadvin, teacher and mentor, does not approve of the killing and lets Maerad know the depth of his feelings. On one trip a landslide covers Cadvan and his horse, leaving Maerad to believe they are dead. After many long and harrowing experiences, Maerad finds Cadvan and all is well between them. This book is the second in Croggon's three-book fantasy series.
