In the third installment of Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness quartet, The Woman Who Rides Like a Man , we meet up with Alanna as she heads out on her adventuring now that she's won her knighthood. Alanna meets up with the Bazhir in the desert and spends a good deal of time developing her magical abilities, teaching apprentices, and dealing with an evil sword.

Alanna really develops in her confidence and sense of self in this novel. Personally, I thought that Jonathan was a complete jerk in this novel. Thank goodness for George. The ending of the novel leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so I'm glad I have book 4 all cued up on my iPod.
