I love the character of Alanna and I love the idea of following her daughters adventures. I even liked Aly! This book began with a short faux-history chapter, which shows just how detailed Pierce’s world-building is. (It even has fake footnotes, a la David Foster Wallace! On second thought, comparing ANY footnotes to David Foster Wallace’s might be a bit of a stretch…) She transports us from Tortall to the Copper Isles, which gives her a chance to really stretch those world-creating muscles. If Tortall is perhaps Medieval England, the Copper Isles appeared to be culturally analogous to India, which was interesting. More to the point, in the Copper Isles, there is long-standing tension between slaves (the raka) and the oppressors (the luarin): obviously Aly needs to set things to rights now that she is there! She can’t be the daughter of the Lioness and George Cooper for nothing!
