Trickster's Queenby Tamora Pierce
Alianne of Pirate's Swoop, plotting the end of the Rittevon line of oppressors to place a young queen on the throne in their stead, is in the middle of a world of intrigue, spies, rebels, and unexpected foreign dignitaries. As the raka rebellion's spy master and Chosen to the Trickster God, Kipryoth, Aly has plenty of tasks to execute and gods' tender feelings to juggle; not to mention her own!
Synopses & Reviews
Aly's adventure continues.... No longer a slave, Alanna's daughter is now spying as part of an underground rebellion against the colonial rulers of the Copper Isles. The people in the rebellion believe that a prophecy in which a new queen will rise up to take the throne is about to be realized. Aly is busy keeping the potential teenage queen and her younger siblings safe, while also keeping her in the dark about her future. But Aly, who is usually adept at anticipating danger and changes, is in for a few nasty surprises.
"The plot sweeps readers along in a whirlwind of court intrigue, deception, murder, and romance. The humor is wicked, and the plot twists will keep the pages turning to the supremely satisfying end." School Library Journal
"Too rushed for satisfying depth (another volume would have helped develop the fascinating but shallow web of secondary characters), but Aly is easily among the most interesting of Pierce's heroines. Thrilling fun, despite its flaws." Kirkus Reviews
"[A] thoroughly engrossing novel, sure to please." Booklist
"[A] complex and rewarding tale..." KLIATT
"Infused with spirited action and intrigue, this fantasy moves with lightening speed....Boys and girls alike will enjoy this fantasy — the boys for its nonstop adventure and the girls for its strong female characters." VOYA
"Once again Tamora Pierce has stretched her medieval fantasy world into a place of high intrigue, adventure, and battle." Children's Literature
