I've liked all of Tamora Pierce's books that I've read and this is one of the best. The main character is the daughter of Alanna, heroine of the Lioness Quartet. Aly is very different than her mother, but another awesome heroine. The characters are all interesting and I can't wait to read the next one to find out what happens.

Tamora Pierce rocks so hard! The main character in this one is the daughter of a spymaster who is thrown into the political turmoil of a foreign country when she is captured and sold as a slave.

This was the most innovative book I have had the chance to read in a long time.
Packed with mysteries, adventure and a very uncommon heroine.

Of course there are some political subjects in the story, yet it did not take are attention away from the characters. On the contrary, it makes us love and embrace their pain and struggles as the story unfolds itself. And if you thought that there wasn't a book that had good comebacks and sarcasm within the dialog, well then you were wrong!
I would strongly recommend this book for all those of you who would like to see the difference between a girl who can't do much, to the girl who was born to perform. This book will leave you on edge and begging for it's ending.
I hope you think so to, so enjoy!

Fantastic book! Another hidden gem I found in a random scan of another library's shelves. This book is part of the larger Tortall Books collection, which showcases a land rich in magic, spies, intrigue, splashes of romance and lots of action - with strong female characters. First of Ms. Pierce's works I've read, this has made me an instant fan.

Another great Tortall book from Tamora Pierce with her trademark strong female characters. A little to political for my taste, but good nontheless.
