Alanna finally sets out in pursuit of adventure after earning her shield and stumbles into the hands of a tribe of the Bazhir who have very distinct ideas about the roles of women. Alanna must earn their trust and learn to trust herself with her magic if she is to be successful in this third adventure of Alanna of Trebond.

This book had many of the same old characters to love, but I really enjoyed the addition of the Bahir, as well. I'm now especially dubious of all Alanna's suitors but I suppose we'll see. I'm looking forward to finishing the series, but I'm at the mercy of John' library schedule as he is checking them out of Fairhope PL for me since MPL doesn't have them.
