9780152018009: The Pearl of the Soul of the World: The Darkangel Trilogy, Volume III

All the world’s wisdom and magic resides within the iridescent depths of a small white pearl. “All my sorcery,” the Ancient Ravenna had said of the pearl. “It is left to you to save the world.” But is the pearl powerful enough to enable Aeriel to defeat the White Witch? Aeriel’s people have assembled an army--led by the redeemed darkangel Irrylath--and are soon to attack the Witch and her darkangel sons. But their cause is hopeless unless Aeriel can unlock the mysteries of the pearl . . . and of her own destiny.

About the Author:

Meredith Ann Pierce is the author of a number of acclaimed fantasy novels: The Dark Angel Trilogy, The Firebringer Trilogy, and The Woman Who Loved Reindeer. Her most recent novel is Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood.

She received both a B.A. and an M.A. from the University of Florida and an M.L.S. from Florida State University, and spends her days as a librarian. By night, she writes. Her hobbies include composing music and playing the harp. She lives in the woods south of Micanopy, Florida, in a house powered by solar energy. 

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up--Dazed, a young woman wan ders through a labyrinth of caves, un able to speak or remember her own name. A glowing pearl hangs around her neck, and in her pale hair gleams a tiny silver pin. With this arresting scene, Pierce opens the final volume of her acclaimed Darkangel Trilogy. Her heroine, Aeriel, is a victim of the world- destroying witch she has been trying to combat; the silver pin sunk deep into her head is responsible for her state. Rescued and restored by the Ancient Ravenna, Aeriel receives the dying Ra venna's powers within her pearl and must carry them to her successor. The subsequent destruction of the witch puts an end to the threats to the planet, but to Aeriel, newly reunited with her husband, Irrylath, it brings only sorrow and new burdens. Becoming Ravenna's successor, she must leave Irrylath for ever and set out with only her faithful companion, Erin, on her lonely destiny as world guardian. Readers will be im mediately and irresistibly drawn into Pierce's fantasy world, but the flash back necessitated by this beginning slows the pace of the story considera bly. Those who have read the earlier books will find this no hardship, how ever. Pierce always has the power to catch the imagination of her readers, and her creativity never falters.
