The climactic volume of the epic quartet follows the Bards of Edil-Amarandh on a vital quest to merge their powers against a nameless evil.

In an increasingly battle-ravaged land, Maerad, Cadvan, and Hem desperately search for one another as they make their separate journeys. The Black Army is advancing north, and even as Maerad faces a mighty confrontation with the Landrost to save Innail, all of the Seven Kingdoms are threatened with bitter and devastating defeat. Yet in Maerad and Hem lives the secret to the mysterious Singing, and legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together, they have the power to defeat the Nameless One. Can brother and sister find each other in time to fight this all-powerful enemy, and are they strong enough -- even reunited -- to defeat him before all is lost?

Well written and exciting conclusion to the Books of Pellinor.

This was a more complicated read, but not really adult level. More like "advanced teen reader" level. Kept me guessing right up to the end.

The Singing is a masterful conclusion to a wonderful series. It, and is series-mates, are absolute page turners. I would recommend these books for someone of any age, provided that they had a sufficient maturity to understand the book and not be terrified by the death in it.
