Publisher Comments:

"From now on I'm Alan of Trebond, the younger twin. I'll be a knight."

In a time when girls are forbidden to be warriors, Alanna of Trebond wants nothing more than to be knight of the realm of Tortall. So she finds a way to switch places with her brother, Thom. Disguised as a boy, Alanna begins her training as a page at the palace of King Roald. The road to knighthood, as she discovers, is not an easy one. Alanna must master weapons, combat, magic — and also polite behavior, her temper, and even her own heart. With stubbornness, skill, and daring, she wins the admiration of all around her, and the friendship of Prince Jonathan of Tortall himself. But she also makes an enemy of the prince's uncle, the powerful and charming Duke Roger....

Filled with swords and sorcery, adventure and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna's first adventure begins — one that will lead to the fulfillment of her dreams and the magical destiny that will make her a legend in her land.

Synopsis:

The first two books in her best-selling Song of the Lioness quartet are available again. For longtime fans and new converts, here is a chance to discover a land of enchantment, legend, and adventure. In "Alanna: The First Adventure, " Alanna of Trebond follows her dream of becoming a knight.

This book is the first in a series that grows with readers, from age ten into young adulthood. The issues faced are real ones - relationships, sex, growing up and fitting it, proving oneself - with enough of a fantasy twist that they keep the reader intrigued without seeming didactic or outdated. I first began reading Pierce's novels when I was ten years old, and now at nineteen, am as avid a fan as I was then.

The First Adventure in particular really makes a wonderful gift for budding readers. The books get more mature as they go along, and they really should be read in sequence for both content and storyline, but this first installment is a gem that can be enjoyed over and over again.
