Neryn has made a long journey to perfect her skills as a Caller. She has learned the wisdom of water and of earth; she has journeyed to the remote isles of the west and the forbidding mountains of the north. Now, Neryn must travel in Alban’s freezing winter to seek the mysterious White Lady, Guardian of Air. For only when Neryn has been trained by all four Guardians will she be ready to play her role in toppling the tyrannical King Keldec.

But the White Lady is not what she seems. Trapped with Whisper, her fey protector, Neryn is unable to send word to her beloved Flint, who is in danger of being exposed as a double agent. When a new threat looms and the rebellion is in jeopardy, Neryn must enter Keldec’s court, where one false move could see her culled. She must stand up against forces more powerful than any she has confronted before, and face losses that could break her heart.

The Caller is the thrilling conclusion to the Shadowfell trilogy.

I have so enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy, and Marillier is so great at crafting a fully realized fantasy story.  The second book left thing in such a cliff-hanger-y way, with a huge punch to my emotional gut that it took a little while to recover. Accordingly, I’m both thrilled and nervous to read what will happen in the final installment. This is an author who is not afraid to leave us readers shouting, “Whhhhyyyyyyyy!” on our knees, shaking our fists to the sky. But I still can’t wait get my hands on it, even if she leaves me crying in the end!

    1. Most of it is not quite so emotionally jarring, but there were a couple surprises throughout the first two books that really shocked me, so they were that much more impactful. lol Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Like others have said, I have not read this series, but I certainly hope that you get your hands on it really soon! 🙂
