In this four volume omnibus edition from the Science Fiction Book Club, we are treated to the story of young Daine, the wild magic that helps her communicate with all animals, and the adventures she has while learning about herself and the life she is to lead.

This was not quite as compelling as Song of the Lioness, but of course the idea of being able to talk easily with any animal, to really understand them and know what they were feeling is the major appeal here. Daine had just as much to pro

So yes, as you can see I’ve been doing a little rereading. I finished the Lioness quartet and was still feeling a bit nostalgic so I thought what the hell I’ll just keep going! When I was younger this was my favourite of all the Tortall books, I wanted to be Daine and speak to animals and heal them, she was my hero. Again, reading this as an adult is different to preteen me reading it (thank god). For one thing I was so invested in Daine and Numair’s relationship, from the get go I was like they ...more

Am I supposed to summarize the story here? I feel like I should but I don't want to so I won't. Sorry.

Anyhoo, this book is good. Would I recommend it? Yeah, sure. Did I enjoy reading it? Yes. Would I reread it? It's likely (but that doesn't say much because I reread a lot.) Tamora Pierce is a great author. I really like her books. After a while, though, I have become used to them, in a good way. I am somewhat in tune with her style and I don't mind. I would have given this three stars but a twis

This is my favorite series of all time. I love Tamora Pierce's writing, but this series tops it all. The characters are exquisite and the basic concept is fantastic. When I first read this series, I was younger and I thought it would be amazing to talk to animals. I still would love to do that even now and I am amazed that no matter how many times I read this series, I still love it. I think anyone who reads these books will enjoy them, but a specific audience would be young adults or teenagers. ...more

Reread this after a number of years, and got through it in a blink. Still amazing, still everything I wanted it to be. It was fun to go back and reread the introduction of Numair after reading Tempests and Slaughter, and waiting impatiently for the next installment of that series.

A little old for young adults. There is sex in the Immortals series also. Not as good as her other books.

This was f****** Brilliant! I read this quartet when I was 11, fell in love! Just genius! The plot was brilliant, story, characters, everything!
Kiana R Pfingsten
The Immortals by Tamora Pierce is a good quick series to read (4 books). It is only one branch on the Tortall Quartet series tree, but a very good one: not in the least because it has dragons!

Follow the journey of Daine and her fanciful animals friends! Sounds pretty cutesy, right? Well, it's not. Daine is a practical teenager who defies mortal logic, superstitious fears, and gods' wishes. She loves fiercely, intensely, and makes peace that she cannot always protect her loved ones.

I really, really enjoyed reading the series. I love Daine, and Kitten, and Cloud, and the wolves, and everyone! I've always had a soft spot for animals, so that could be part of it. I think I liked Kel's series slightly better maybe, bu

This is an omnibus, containing all 4 of the Daine books. I highly recommend them. They're a bit different from the Alanna and Keladry books, since Daine has wild magic, rather than the mage Gift; and she is not trying to become a knight. Note: the descriptions below may contain minor spoilers, since it is nearly impossible to describe the story otherwise. But they should not affect your enjoyment of the books! If you hate spoilers of any kind, read no further.

I saw Wild Magic on the shelf in my hometown library when I was in high school and have read everything Tamora Pierce has written (and I re-read them once every few years). All her stories are about young girls who take their lives into their own hands and live (and love) by their own rules. Fantastic for young girls and teenage readers.

I read these books a number of years ago, but I didn’t remember much. Daine is a delightful character, and I love that she gets to be strong without having to be seen as acting like a man, which so many authors think they have to do. I had forgotten that it included so many Alanna characters as supporting characters, which I really loved, as those are some of my favorite books in the world.

I have read these before, but always worth another perusal. Since I had read the new book about Numair, I wanted to refresh my memory about the events after he came to Tortall. Tamora Pierce is one of my family's favorite authors. ...more

This is honestly my favorite series by Tamora Pierce. While I very fervently love her other series, this one strikes a chord with me the most. It's got magic, adventure, romance, gods, geopolitical war, you name it. ...more

I read this series after my brother bought me the first book. I was about 11 or 12. I loved it, I imagine any young girl who loves animals would love this book! I finished the series a few years after reading the first one when I found them in my school library.

Despite reading this as an adult - and therefore well outside the target audience - it retains its charm. For a young girl who is animal crazy, this is sure to be a winner.

Daine is great and I liked her books a lot, except that I can't get behind the Daine/Numair romance at all (I wish Pierce were less into the older man/girl he met as a child trope overall). ...more

I really enjoyed this world, and the creatures, the magic and the relationships between characters.
Definitely worth a read, I flew through this quartet.

Hey, folks! I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single-star ratings--except I haven't. How do I know I haven't? Because I haven't read those books at all. So before you go getting all hacked off at me for trashing your favorites, know that I've written GoodReads to find out what's going on.
