The Bone Queen
Pellinor: Cadvan’s Story

author: Alison Croggon

series name:
The Books of Pellinor
Several months ago, the promising Bard Cadvan of Lirigon, seduced into sorcery by an agent of the Dark, unleashed the terrible Bone Queen. Now, a young Bard named Selmana is plagued by an ominous presence and an unsettling new ability to step between worlds. With darkness gathering in Annar, a guilt-ridden Cadvan must once again earn the Bards’ trust, and Selmana must gain control of her newfound powers if they are to bring peace to the living and the dead. Fans of the Books of Pellinor will savor this glimpse into Cadvan’s past, and readers new to Alison Croggon’s intricately built world will relish The Bone Queen as a stand-alone epic of light, dark, magic, and redemption.
“Croggon returns to this world with all of the intelligence, unflinching darkness, lyrical prose, and impeccable pacing the Pellinor quartet offered. . . . The book is a treat.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
