The Naming

by Alison Croggon

I highly recomend The Naming. If you like fantasy and drama, this is a book for you! You should only read this book when you are older- it has some, uh, dramatic things in it. It's very long and very interesting. If you read this book and loved it, don't worry! The series has 4 books in it. The second book is called The Riddle.

The book reviews on the book say it is somewhat like J.R.R. Tolkien's books The Hobit and his series The Lord of the Rings. So, if you liked J.R.R. Tolkien's books, you'll like this!

The main character is Maered, a former slave girl. The story takes place in some time like the Medieval Times, but in a different world. You've got to read this fantastic book!

Love this book. Like LotR with a female protag. (Which was one of his greatest faults: most of the female charries didn't do anything besides stand around and look pretty and occasionally sing something.) But what in Merlin's name do you mean by "uh, dramatic"? I didn't see anything inappropriate.
