Topic: Everything has an end! Choose your favorite conclusion to a series.

The Shadowfell series by Juliet Marillier quickly became of one my favourite due to its brilliant mix of romance, magic, Medieval-like setting and adventure. In it, Neryn must find a way to defeat the king of Alban who has been brutally murdering his own subjects, especially those with magically abilities. The Caller was a perfect end to the trilogy because it nicely wrapped everything up. I didn’t have any lingering questions, everything came full circle. If you like fantasy or romance, I highly suggest reading some of Marillier’s work. She really knows how to write captivating stories with swoon worthy male characters 🙂

Original Book Cover + My Favourite Cover:

16056352

The book was originally released in Australia and New Zealand. It’s my favourite cover because it best represents the series – Neryn and Flint traveling on horseback to kind a way to defeat the evil King Keldec.

Cover From My Country: 

18744715

While I prefer the original Australian/New Zealand cover, this one is alright. I normally don’t like people on the covers, but at least the woman resembles how Neryn was described. Many books have characters on them that have nothing to do with the book and that drives me crazy.

Least Favourite Book Covers:

Kleurplaat De Stripdagen 2012

The colouring on this Dutch cover is not appealing whatsoever. The woman and her Darth Vader-like hand is pretty frightening. She also doesn’t resemble Neryn…why is her hair dark? Did the designer not read the book?
