I liked how it happened, Hem and Maerad came together and the Tree Song started but it didn’t work like it should.
Alison Croggon is the award winning author of the acclaimed fantasy series The Books of Pellinor. Saliman is a Bard who helped Hem through his adventures. Was surprised how attached i became to the characters!
