TAMORA PIERCE

Tamora is a fantasy author who writes fantasy books for young adults. Many of them take place in the same world and you come across characters from the other books. The absolute best thing she does is write more than one book about the same characters so that you can see their growth. I highly recommend them. The best recomendation that I can give for her is that I just love every book she has written.

The Song Of The Lioness Quartet tells the story of Alanna of Trebond, noble-born girl who wants to be a knight and trades places with her twin brother Thom in order to achieve her goal. Thom takes her place at the convent in order to become a sorceror, but you don't hear much about him.
ALANNA: THE FIRST ADVENTURE,
IN THE HAND OF THE GODDESS
THE WOMAN WHO RIDES LIKE A MAN
LIONESS RAMPANT

The Immortals Quartet is about Daine, a young orphan girl who has wild magic that gives her a connectonwith animals and doesn't know it at first.

WILD MAGIC
WOLF-SPEAKER
THE EMPEROR MAGE
THE REALMS OF THE GODS


The Protector Of The Small Quartet follow the story of Keladry of Mindelan. She is the first girl to desire knighthood since Alanna. This time it's legal though because the law has been changed to allow girls. That doesn't save her from her share of trials though.

The Circle Of Magic Quartet is about four kids, Sandry, Briar, Tris and Daja, who all find out that they have magic and form a bod that makes them not only become friends, but family as well. They each learn about their magic and each book is written from the perspective of one of them As they learn about their magic and each other we learn about them.

The Circle Opens Quartet is also about Sandry, Briar, Tris and Daja as they seperate and travel with their seperate magic instructors as they learn more about their individual magics and also, having been declared full mages at this point, discovering new mages and becoming teachers themselves.

The Circle Reforged is the first book reuniting, as the name suggests, Sandry, Briar, Tris and Daja after journeys that have changed them all in unexpected ways.
THE WILL OF THE EMPRESS

Daughter Of The Lioness Series is about Alianne of Pirate's Swoop aka Aly. She is the daughter of Alanna (see The Lioness Quartet) and her adventures when she is captured by pirates and sold into slavery in another country. Add in a trickster god and just use your imagination.

The Provost's Dog Trilogy is the first of a new trilogy about Beka who is a trainee member of the watch in Corus, a city in the same land of the Lioness and Trickster series.

My first Blog

This is going to be a blog to post books that I have read and liked but mostly to post authors and titles of books that people tell me I should read. Everyone always tells me that I should read certain books and I write them down and then I lose the paper and forget what they were until they ask me if I read them yet. So now, I have place to post them that I can't lose, unless of course, I forget my password.
