Alanna the first adventure!!! 1000 stars
I was recently introduced to Tamora Pierce when a friend gave me Beka Cooper & ever since I've only read Tammys books, my only regret is that I didn't start reading these years ago!
This book is simply amazing. The narorrator, Trini, is great. Trini breathes life into this book. The plot is fresh with plenty of twists. The lovable characters make it so real. (And I can honestly say that this isn't the first tortallan rouge I've fallen in love with (;
Love Her Books
I think Tamora Pierce doesn't get enough publicity. She's the greatest writer ever in my opion if that counts for anything. I think if it's done right all her books could be great movies. If you read this and you like it spread the word.
Alanna: a true her, a true joy to read
Alanna is the perfect character.simply wonderful books a perfect mix of adventure and action. 5 stars!
