Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirteen-year-old DaIne has always had a knack with animals, but it's not until she's forced to leave home that she realizes it's more than a knack — it's magic. With this wild magic, not only can Daine speak to animals, but also she can make them obey her. Daine takes a job handling horses for the Queen's Riders, where she meets the master mage Numair and becomes his student.

Under Numair's guidance, Daine explores the scope of her magic. But she begins to sense other beings too: immortals. These bloodthirsty monsters have been imprisoned in the Divine Realms for the past four hundred years, but now someone has broken the barrier. It's up to Daine and her friends to defend their world from an immortal attack.

mariah.jackson, January 3, 2010 (view all comments by mariah.jackson)
Tamora Pierce is one of my favourite authors, and The Immortals is my favourite quartet. Wild Magic introduces us to a new set of characters living in Tortall and brings back the characters from her previous quartet, Song of the Lioness. The writing is spectacular, as always, and the plot is fast-paced, and enthralling. After reading Wild Magic I couldn't wait to read the rest of the quartet, and see what else happens to Daine, the teenager who can communicate with animals. This is one book I couldn't set down until it was over.

Wild Magic introduces us to Daine, who has a special talent for communicating with animals that has landed her in deep, deep trouble on more than one occasion. Fortunately, she falls in with the warriors of Tortall, and begins to learn to control her gift with the help of Numair, a charming and powerful wizard. Daine's sense of awkwardness and her gradual realization that her gifts can be appreciated rather than feared are well-written, and this is another warm and exciting adventure from Tamora Pierce.
