Home Tamora Pierce The Realms of the Gods. She knew that lesser gods entered the mortal realms only on the equinoxes and solstices and her mother had said it was good they met the Skinners on Midsummer Day. There were degrees of strength among gods, then. If this was so, then perhaps lesser gods weren’t all-anything, and Sarra could now be a divine being.

Oct 01, 2008 Kogiopsis rated it it was amazing. This is the book in which Tamora Pierce proves that romance is better when it's drawn out slowly over an entire quartet, because by the time you get here every tense moment between the two of them sends shivers down your spine and it's far, far, far more electric than any one-book instamance.

The Immortals by Tamora Pierce is a good quick series to read (4 books). The Realms of the Gods The barrier, which previously imprisoned the immortals in the Divine Realm, is in tatters, and all kinds of immortals have descended on the land. Tortall's armies are hard put to defend all sides of the country, and neighboring countries are taking advantage of that and are trying to invade.

A magical barrier had separated the realms of the gods from the mortal realms for over four hundred years. While it stood, mortals were safe from the legendary creatures known as immortals, so named because, unless they were slain, they lived forever. Giants, Stormwings, griffins, basilisks, tauroses, Coldfangs, ogres, centaurs, winged horses, unicorns: In time, all became the stuff of children’s tales, or the concern of scholars who explored the records of times long gone.

Realms of the Gods" is the final book in Tamora Pierce's "Immortals" quartet, and probably the best. As one can possibly guess, it's nearly impossible for someone to begin reading this series at this book - you at least have to read Book Three: "The Emperor Mage", though ideally you should have all three previous books under your belt: "Wild Magic" and "Wolf-Speaker" just to have the complete picture of what's going on here.

Probably my favorite book in the Immortals series by Tamora Pierce. Daine is an amazing heroine; in this book she learns about her origins (and finally meets the father her mother always hinted at but never revealed), she masters her ability to shape-shift into animal form, and she discovers the true feelings of the master mage, her mentor and friend Numair Salmalin (another favorite character of mine). She experiences the loss that comes with war, the high price that fighting for what you believe in can demand, and she emerges as a strong, intelligent, and always-believable heroine who is very human and relateable-- making hard choices with wisdom and care-- and admitting it when she makes mistakes, striving to right them instead of angsting or relying on others. Way better than most "young adult" novels written in recent years, with frankness and honesty that adults can easily appreciate. Get this series-- it's absolutely wonderful, books to read over and over again.
I had issues with this book. I think that a romantic relationship between a teenage girl and a much older man, who is supposed to be her teacher and mentor is highly inappropriate! Since the audience for Ms Pierce’s books is teenagers, I find it even more inappropriate. That relationship ruined what was otherwise a fun story for me and soured me somewhat on the entire series.
In this, the fourth book in the Immortals series, Daine and Numair journey into the realm of the immortals and the gods, seeking a way to keep the goddess of chaos from destroying their land. Diane, possessor of a wild magic that allows her to converse with and change into animals, once more embarks on a quest that seems impossible, but which is the only way to save those she loves and serves. Numair, her magic teacher and friend, accompanies her, using his Gift to help her find her unknown father and then the Dragons who have removed themselves from any interactions with humans.
In this intense conclusion to the series, we see Daine continuing to mature--as a user of Wild Magic, as a human, and as a woman. One of the qualities that I love in Pierce's books is the way that she doesn't let her characters fall into easy, dichotomous views of good and evil; while there are certainly evil villains populating these books, Daine discovers that she cannot just judge beings by their form or appearance. Beings can and do change, and good and wise folks must always look carefully.
Caveat: this book can be read on its own, but the patient reader who will go back to the first novel and work her way through the series will experience a much deeper appreciation of this world. (And get to read four marvelous books, instead of just one!)
While this is not my favorite book in the series, I still give it 5 stars because it is a satisfying end to a great series. I think there are too many settings and pieces and it makes this novel drag in places, but overall it works. I enjoy the progression of Daine and Numairs relationship. If you enjoy Tamara Pierce, or just like strong women being the heroes of their own stories, read the Immortals Quartet and anything set in Tortall.
Silver Globol
As with the rest of this series, the characters are fascinating. A young, strong female lead is also a bonus and watching her grow up through the series adds a great dimension. Dain's ability to shape change and speak with animals made me view the world we live in and share with other creatures in a new light.
...and as I wrote regarding the Trickster series that is just fine. Plot twists are clearly telegraphed, bad guys are quite bad. Good guys are very good. There is one exception to this trend in this series that I thought was a nice touch. The Immortals series gets off to a rocky start. The first volume has a bit of excessive exposition aimed at younger readers and when handled well that is fine, but in this case it is a bit ham-fisted in places.

As other readers have noted the country bumpkin routine gets somewhat tiresome in the first volume, but things pick up and accelerate through the series. This seems to be par for the course for Ms. Pierce. Usually books in a series tend to go downhill as they progress, but that is not the case here.

For adult readers these are bite sized morsels. I was able to plow through the third volume in an evening. For younger readers I suspect these are paced about right.

I do wish these "quartets" came in one or two volumes.
This one has a different feel than the others as it's in the realm of gods instead of mortals. It's interesting to get the backstory. I could have done without the romantic twist, though; I'm all for a good romance, but it was just a little at odds with the rest of the series.
Daine and her mentor Numair travel to the divine realm by accident, and must find their way out. Danger looms everywhere in the richly imagined divine realm, and Daine must use all her resources to survive. It's a thrilling journey and the author's flair for the fantastic must be appreciated, however...

The main characters' relationship develop in a way that you may or may not find agreeable (I didn't). The message seems to be that it's okay as long as they love each other. But the merit of 'true love' is in doubt when the relationship is unequal, as is the case here. No matter how I look at it, Numair is taking advantage of his authority as Daine's mentor. The author handles the situation with class, but I still find it unacceptable.
