Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A knight at last, Alanna of Trebond heads out to seek adventure in the desert of Tortall. Captured by desert tribesmen, she is forced to prove herself in a magical duel to the death. But her real challenge doesn't come until after she wins. As the first female shaman, Alanna must fight to change the ancient traditions of the stubborn desert tribes — for their own sake and for the sake of all Tortall.

This third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet continues Alanna's saga as she strikes out alone and discovers herself anew.

This is the third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet. While travelling in the desert, Alanna (now a full-fledged knight) encounters and is eventually adopted by a tribe of Bazhir, the nomadic desert-dwellers. I really enjoyed this novel, and I like how Alanna is developing as a character -- the choices that she faces in balancing her personal ambitions with her love for Prince Jon (and George Cooper) are particularly well done. This does have a rather anticlimatic ending, though -- it feels kind of like half a book, and is definitely gearing up for the final book in the quartet.
