Description

As long as I could keep myself out of bondage, I would be true to Bear's teaching. And so it was that beyond all else, I was determined to keep my freedom. After the death of their beloved mentor, Bear, Crispin and Troth are more desperate than ever, wandering the desolate French countryside, where they don't speak the language and know no one. The only hope they cling to is that somehow they can reach Iceland, where Bear had said there were no kings or lords, and where they can live in freedom. Crispin is determined to fulfill this dream, both for himself and to honor Bear's memory. But the road to liberty is filled with danger, betrayal, and loss. Crispin must decide for himself what freedom really means--and how high a price he is willing to pay for it.show more

Our customer reviews

Crispin is on the final leg of his journey to reach freedom. He's heading for Iceland because according to his father figure, Bear, who just died, that is the last place for freedom. But the road isn't easy. Crispin must figure out how he and Troth - his friend and companion on the road to freedom - will reach Iceland. With no money, food, or protection, the two must find a way to reach this mysterious land safely. But when Troth decides to stay with some nuns who can provide her shelter and safety, Crispin must go on to Iceland himself. He meets up with a band of musicians and thinks he has finally found sanctuary, only to find out that this misfit family are thieves and murderers. Can Crispin free himself from this band? Will he ever make it to Iceland? Avi writes a fantastic end to the CRISPIN trilogy in THE END OF TIME. Full of twists and turns, the reader is never left bored. Avi creates a beloved character that the reader roots for from beginning to end. However, be forewarned: the ending will leave you wanting more. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
