Publisher Comments:

The beloved Song of the Lioness series has enthralled fans for decades, and now an even larger audience can revel in these adventure-filled fantasies, which are in trade paperback for the first time and feature newly designed covers.

In Alanna, Alanna of Trebond disguises herself as a boy and makes her way to the castle of King Roald to being training as a page. As she masters the skills necessary for battle, Alanna must also learn to control her heart. This challenge is even greater in In the Hand of the Goddess, where Alanna becomes a squire to Prince Jonathan, who knows the secret of her identity. But when a mysterious sorcerer threatens the prince’s life, it will take all of Alanna’s skill, strength, and magical power to protect him. Her efforts result in knighthood, and in The Woman Who Rides Like a Man, Alanna seeks adventure in a vast desert of Tortall, where, after a life-threatening duel, she becomes the first female shaman to an ancient tribe. Her warrior wisdom is put to the test in Lioness Rampant, because Tortall is in grave danger that only Alanna can prevent. As she takes on her archenemy, Alanna discovers she has a future worthy of her mythic past—both as a warrior and a woman.

The Song of the Lioness quarter was my favorite discovery of 2012. I'd grown up reading Tamora Pierce, and don't know how I missed this series. Alanna is one of the best role models girls of any age could ask for. She's brave, follows her heart, fiercely independent, and smart. Love, love, love these books!
