Publisher Comments:

Random House Fantasy brings you the first three titles of Tamara Pierce's The Immortals series. Set in the world Pierce introduced in her Song of the Lioness quartet, The Immortals chronicles a time when Tortall is invaded by immortal creatures and a girl is born with a magical gift that could save the balance of nature". Daine is a super new heroine who makes this action-packed fantasy a joy to read", says the Voice of Youth Advocates.

Young Daine's knack with horses gets her a job helping the royal horsemistress drive a herd of ponies to Tortall. Soon it becomes clear that Daine's talent, as much as she struggles to hide it, is downright magical. Horses and other animals not only obey the mysterious girl but also come to her and seem to listen to her words. Daine, though, will have to learn to trust humans before she can come to terms with her powers, her past, and herself.

Diane has a way with animals. When she gets a job herding horses her employer realizes that it is a rare form of magic and starts to try and convince Diane to trust people as much as she trust animals. But Diane has been so scarred and hurt by people it seems she may never be able to really trust any human.

This is the first book in The Immortals series and IMO the second best. The Immortals is one of my favorite series ever. It is a series full of magic, horses, dragons, and magical beings as well as some of my favorite fictional characters.
