ALANNA OF TREBOND, THE SOLE WOMAN KNIGHT IN the realm of Tortall, splashed happily in the waters of an oasis, enjoying her first bath in three days. Hard to believe that it’s winter in the North, she reflected. In the Southern Desert the temperatures were just right, although she objected to so much sand. Best hurry up, Coram told her.

It's not the best book in the series, but overall The Woman Who Rides Like a Man is another great Alanna adventure, full of excitement and magic and swordfights and sex with cute boys and fantastic conversations like this, which all little girls need to study and remember: "'You are a terrifying creature,' the Voice told solemnly. You do not take your place in your father's tent, letting men make your decisions.

It was a nice, easy and quick escape from my world of waiting for Law School decisions and Law and Finance midterms. It even sparked a dream that I had about the characters in the book I’m writing, but that, as they say, is for another time.

The Song of the Lioness is the first quartet of fantasy books by Tamora Pierce. The Song of the Lioness tells the story of young Alanna of Trebond, a girl of noble birth, who doesn't want to lead a noble girl's life.

The third book in the popular "Song of the Lioness" series about Alanna, the knight errant.

Gold Crown
The "Song of the Lioness" quartet is a rare example of a story with blatant messages and political leanings that nonetheless manages retain a natural storytelling feel and, as a result, natural entertainment value. It is at heart a children's book, and while the "Protector of the Small" quartet is superior (and more interesting) in several aspects, I would still recommend reading this series before that one, as it tells the stories of several characters who re-appear in "Protector," including the protagonist Alanna herself, who plays a small but important part in Keladry's adventures in the latter series, and Prince Jonathan, who is King Jonathan by the time "Protector" rolls around.

This is by my understanding the first series of stories written in Tamora Pierce's "Tortall" fantasy setting, even if it is not the first story in chronological sequence, and so works just fine as an entry point. Readers who enjoy the kind of quality children's-story and/or young-adult story as the likes of Harry Potter will probably find the way the Tortall books are written engaging, even if the subject matter is very different. Overall, I strongly recommend this series, as well as the extended Tortall library.
This is an excellent series centered on Alanna of Trebond. The series starts with Alanna convincing her twin brother to switch places. He doesn’t want to become a knight – he wants to be a great sorcerer. Alanna doesn’t want to learn to sew and dance, becoming a Lady - she wants to become a great knight. At 8 years old, Alanna decides to take the fate of herself and her brother, who doesn't take too much convincing, into her own hands.
How were they going to pull this off? How were they even going to convince the servants who care for them? I was intrigued from the very first page. Being female she is smaller than her fellow pages and so must work harder, be better at all the weapons and games, and still manage to hide her true nature. She faces all the challenges of growing up - new places, new people, new situations, who to trust, how to stand up for herself but be true to her nature, how to succeed against stiff odds and more. Alanna wants nothing more than adventure in her life but must make tough choices to fulfill that desire.
Tamora Pierce, the author, writes from the perspective of the child and explores this character’s life in an entertaining, realistic and engrossing manner. The first book was published in 1983, when my own daughter was only 6 years old, and it was a series that we enjoyed together.
I've just finished re-reading the series and it was just as good the second read. If you want to give your child a worthy, good role model I highly recommend Alanna. My Granddaughter Winter is only 3 months old and I look forward to sharing it with her.
I would give this five stars but the last book is missing pages 151 through 180 and considering i spent 25 dollars on the set i would expect it to have all of the pages in all of the books
This book chronicles Alanna’s introduction to the desert people and her adoption into one of the tribes. She brings many changes and much upheaval to the tribe. I didn’t like this one quite as much as the previous book, but I did enjoy reading it. My only complaint is that the end of the book was more of a setup for the next book rather a true ending to this story.
Tamora Pierce gives us book three in her series Song of the Lioness. It continues with fresh material and an exciting plot that keeps the pages turning. If you haven't read the other two books that come before it, you will miss out on the rich history, but the book can be read as a stand-alone novel.
In this installment, Alanna, who became the first lady knight by keeping her gender a secret, has escaped to the desert after having her identity revealed during a sword fight to protect the Queen. She meets a new challenge with the desert people, the Bahzir. Here she must learn to become part of their society, but she turns it upside down at the same time.
If you like adventure, sword fighting and light romance set in an ancient society where knights protected the land, then I recommend this book to you. Ms. Pierce paints a memorable picture that will hook you to read more.
This edition is gorgeous. I purchased it because I'd read some of the books decades ago and wanted to own them to reread then loan out. This set is a fabulous example of middle grade fantasy with an intricate plot and relatable characters.
This was my least favorite of the Alanna books, but that's like saying Ringo was my least favorite Beatle. Each book or series by Tamora Pierce is a treasure: I inhaled them in fifth grade, sixth grade, seventh grade...through high school, and then after as the book kept coming out. I give this writer a lot of credit for unconsciously instilling feminist values in me at a young age, while growing up in a highly patriarchal Midwestern town. Tamora, if that was your aim, kudos. I owe you so much.
I love this book and it was always one of my favorites growing up. My mother read the series then passed it on to me, and to this day at 25 years old I love to re-read this captivating series about the empowered woman who does what it takes to accomplish her dreams. My daughter is only 2, but when she gets older I will pass these books to her and in the mean time I will recommend them to anyone else who enjoys fantasy and excellent writing.
They may be "young reader," but Tamora Pierce writes in a way that draws you into her story and really lets you relate with her characters. This world of magic and knights is reminiscent of the middle ages of King Arthur and Merlin, but with a new world twist that makes the concept new and exciting. Join Alanna on her daring journey to finding out who she is and making her own place in the world that doesn't want to accept her. A truly inspiring series about being yourself and finding your path when the odds are against you.
