Born in 14th-century England, Crispin has embarked on one adventure after another since learning that he, once known only as "Asta's son," has a much grander destiny than he ever could have imagined. But his fate has taken a dark turn. The sweet and kindly Bear, his friend and protector, is dead. Crispin is thereby left to protect Troth, she of the staring eyes and broken face. Having attempted a sea voyage to France-and having their ship and most of their hopes dashed to bits in the process-Crispin and Troth are plagued by hunger and left to fend for themselves. All in all, they have much to fear . and scant prospects on which to pin their hopes. Newbery Medal-winning author Avi completes the Crispin saga with this third installment of the riveting trilogy. Voiced by widely acclaimed narrator Ron Keith, Crispin: The End of Time takes listeners on the journey of a lifetime.
