“"A good friend will help you up when you fall. A best friend will laugh and try to trip you again."”

Veralidaine Sarrasri – otherwise known as Daine – is a young girl full of memories she’d rather forget. Stubborn, wilful and ready to learn, she pushes her past behind her and gets a job with the horsemistress of the Queen’s Riders, Onua – in the hope that she’ll never have to deal with her past, or magic, again. But after an unexpected meeting with a master mage by the name of Numair Salmalin, Daine discovers that she possesses wild magic: a unique form of magic that allows her to commune with - and in some cases turn into – animals.

Trouble blooms as mages in Carthak awaken the Immortals - a group of mythical creatures from another realm - and plan to use them to wage war on Tortall. Daine must put all her doubts about herself and her abilities aside as she, along with Numair and Alanna the Lioness, use their gifts to defend Tortall from the greatest threat it has ever known.

Your opinion on any of the following:

1.) What do you think motivates Daine to leave the place, until certain events occurred, she saw as home? Do you think this was a hard decision for her to make?
2.) What is your first opinion of Numair?
3.) Onua Chamtong, the woman in charge of the horses for the "Queen's Riders," becomes fast 'friends' with Daine. Why do you think Daine trusts Onua almost immediately when she seems to push others away? Does it have anything to with Onua's gruff attitude?

4.) a.) In many summaries of this book it is stated that "After time, with the help of her only family left, Cloud, a pony, she gained her humanity and sanity. " It also states that is with the help of Numair's spell that she does not lose her mind again. Do you think this is the case? Or is it because of her own faith in herself, her confidence in her abilities and her determination and bravery that Daine managed to stay sane.
b.) Do you think it possible to gain/lose humanity?

5.) Who is your favourite character (besides Daine) and why?

Answer below!!:D
