Alanna has left her friends (and the people we have grown to like and are mad that she left them) and is venturing off on her own to "have some adventures." Ok, fine, but I think she would have had some idea of what she was going to do and oddly it was never mentioned. She just rides off and gets caught instantly and now she's stuck there. Sort of weird. We'll see.

I'm reading these books because my daughter liked them and after reading this series went on to read every other Tamora Pierce book ever written. Also, I read Bekka Cooper which is a character that is related by a few generations to this character but the story and writing was MUCH more sophisticated.... I can sorta tell this was an early work.

FINISHED: Nice story. A tiny bit cliff-hangerish.
