In Tamora Pierce's continuing saga, we find just how rich and elaborate the fantasy genre can get as Aly herself, now free, does everything in her power to keep the queen safe, spying for the underground rebels. Pierce is a true weaver of magic, mayhem, and mystical realities you can't put down.

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

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

Aly is busy keeping the potential teenage queen and her younger siblings safe, while also keeping her in the dark about her future.

I kept putting off reading Trickster's Queen, because I loved Trickster's Choice so much and was afraid the sequel wouldn't live up to it. I needn't have worried -- this delivers on all the promise of the first book and brings things to a highly satisfying conclusion. Certain plot "twists" seemed heavily broadcasted to me, but other portions were genuinely surprising, and the whole thing is nicely suspenseful. Aly remains possibly my favorite Pierce heroine.
