it was amazing
Recommended for: teens, adults

I'm just going to review this first book, but my review stands for the whole quartet. Lovely prose, fascinating characters. Tamora Pierce's Tortall books are easily some of my favorite books I've read in a very long time. Some adult themes---Allanna eventually takes a lover and fights some real evil. But these are treated with realism rather than romantic fantasy (no lurid descriptions). Again, I loved 'em all!
