Overview


Kate Constable's magnificent musical trilogy reaches its high note as Calwyn returns to Antaris and discovers the true Singer of All Songs.

At the beginning of THE SINGER OF ALL SONGS, Calwyn fled Antaris with Darrow to defeat the ambitious chanter Samis. In THE TENTH POWER, she comes back to the mountains in hopes of rejuvenating her lost powers of chantment. But Samis's magic left terrible scars on Antaris, so Calwyn finds only conflict rather than the peace she craved. Meanwhile, Darrow suffers from a sickness that has sapped his magic as well as his strength--and Samis has returned to continue his quest for the Singer of All Songs. All of Tremaris seems to be dying. How can Calwyn save the land, and finally save them all?

This book is awsome if you want adventure, mystery, fantacy, humor, and even romance. I found this book to be totally awsome. I think the book goes a little downhill though, when Calwyn kisses Samis. Ya, like that kind of hurts the story, but in the end its better than ever. Why did the series have to end??? Anyways, You should really get this book, becauce it totally rocks!

The Tenth Power.... The last book to the Chanters of Tremaris Trilogy. This novel is just as wonderful and magical as the previous two, but with a few twists and turns to add a little spice to the story. In the final installment of this trilogy, there is sacrifice, love, sorrow, anger, and so much more. What else could you expect from a story where the magic of the land is dying, along with those who possess the power of song.The characters have all grown so much in this book, their personalities have changed greatly. Responsibilities and hardships that they have suffered through has altered them in many ways- some for the better, and some for the worse. With the sickness and bitterness of the land, emotions run high and dangerous between the people of song and the people of dance. Emotions that could only lead to war and despair. The only hope of salvation comes from Calwyn and her friends, but will they be able to perform the magic to save everything they know and love?

I was completely dying to read this book, but since my TBR stack is huge, I had to wait several days, which honestly killed me. This book is the third book of The Chanters of Tremaris Trilogy. Calwyn was once on her path to become the singer of all songs. But suddenly, when she reaches far beyond what her magic can do and heals the dead lands, every single trace of magic in her is gone. Sadly enough for Calwyn, so is Darrow. Separated from each other, one in Antaris, another gone to find Samis. Calwnyn goes to Antaris,her homeland,in order to try to revive her magic powers. When she arrives there, horrible things happen, and the evil disease called snow-sickness spreads to Calwyn's beloved Hgh Priestess-Marna. Eventually Darrow catches the disease, and that is the only thing that seperates them. For Darrow cares deeply for Calwyn, and she him, but if a chantment singer touches a person with snow-sickness, it is death. Will they ever be together again? And will they defeat Samis in time to Save the whole world of Tremaris?As intriguing as this book was, there were some downsides to it. How Calwyn changed her mind so quickly and became temporarily evil doesn't make any sense-and kissing Samis doesn't make it any easier. Overall, this book was great, but Calwyn would look better as NOT fickle.

I almost didn't continue listening to this beyond disc one, but the world intrigued me enough to spend more time in it. By midway through the fourth disc, I'd had enough. The main character is self-absorbed, and her quest failed to hold my interest.

I began to read this series for the first time about 6 years ago and I loved it then. At the time, the third book had not yet been published and I anxiously awaited it. Now that I've bought them all and read them again, I am just as pleased with them as when I first read them. I would highly recommend this trilogy to any lover of fantasy. Honestly, this trilogy is one of my favorites. Kate Constable does not disappoint.

This is a really good book especially if you enjoy fantasy. It's not all just fantasy but the book does have a lot of magic in it so I would not recomend it to people who do not like quite a bit of fantasy. This book is the 3rd book of a series. There is friendship, betrayal, magic, love, and more in this book. Here Calwyn learns who she really is.

I loved this book! It was great, it ties up everything from the first two books! I definitely recommend this book! But make sure you read the first two before this one!

I walked into a Barnes and Noble one day searching for something to take the place of boredem. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw The Tenth Power. I literally ran to it, for I'd givin up hope on ever getting it, since it took so long. It took me right back to the old days when I lilved with my dad, and used to exchange emails with Kate Constable. In her emails, she gave hints on how good the book was, and she was right. I do thank her so much. This is one of my favorite series. Definitly a good read.

The last book in the 'Chanters Of Tremaris' is probably the best. Calwyn has to find a way to get her power of chanting back, save Darrow, and all of Tremaris. But Calwyn is in for a surprise when she returns to her homeland. Surprising twists will keep you up all night reading.

YAY!! This really was the perfect end to this trilogy! I couldn't have imagined it any other way. But I must say, I was shocked by some of the things that happened. I gasped when I found some of these things out! Anyway, this book was really good, much better than the other two. It was much more exciting and adventurous. But the ending was a little confusing. I think I missed and important part (a death...) and then when I figured it out, I got confused. But besides that, the book was fantastic. I will recommend this series to anyone who wants a good read!!
