Hey all, needing help finding a fantasy trilogy
its been 10+ years since i have read or even SEEN the books (typical lending/trading to friends and no longer seeing them again). My memories are a bit sketchy on the exact content but the basis was that each main character had a familiar (one had a seagull, another books was a cat i believe). I remember there being a magical tree who played an integral role to the story but i dont recall how. I believe that hte ones with the familiars were the only ones that were able to use magic and I also think that it was genetic.
Sorry for the vague description.. I hope someone can help.
fwiw, each bookcover was a different color (red,blue and green i believe)
