This was the first book I read of Tamora Pierce's world and even though it makes frequent mentions of other characters featured in her other series', I didn't feel lost at all. This story is well-paced, the world building is complete and presented in a sensible and easy to grasp way, and Aly's inventiveness brings the story a sense of fun and adventure that all ages identify with.

The second and last volume of this series is Trickster's Queen. In this novel Tamora Pierce tells the story of Alianne of Pirate's Swoop, the daughter of Pierce's first heroine, Alanna of Pirate's Swoop and Olau, the famed Lioness. Aly doesn't want to follow in her mothers footsteps and is enlisted to help the trickster god Kyprioth instead.

  • All Alianne (Aly) wants to do is be a spy like her father, however her parents don’t agree. So, frustrated at them she sails down the coast only to be captured by pirates. She's sold as a slave to the Balitang family as a general worker, and makes a deal with the Trickster God, Kyprioth, if she keeps the Balitang children alive until autumn, he will convince her father to allow her be a spy, however this deal may be harder than it seems. I'd have to say that I have read most of Tamora Pierce’s books and have loved them all and Trickster's choice is defiantly a hit. Aly is an interesting strong female lead who is both feisty yet likeable. This is a really fascinating story with action, humor and romance. I would recommend Trickster’s Choice to anyone who likes good YA fantasy.
    Certainly Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite writers in this genre.

  • I absolutely love this book! Tamora Pierce's writing is engaging, creative and full of nuances that make these books fun for both teenagers and adults. Aly's voice is fresh, inventive and though she's young, she's not another annoying YA heroine. She learns from her mistakes and she's SMART. She stands up for what she thinks and she doesn't follow the herd. She's a heroine worth admiring.

    This was the first book I read of Tamora Pierce's world and even though it makes frequent mentions of other characters featured in her other series', I didn't feel lost at all. This story is well-paced, the world building is complete and presented in a sensible and easy to grasp way, and Aly's inventiveness brings the story a sense of fun and adventure that all ages identify with.

    Alianne (Aly) of Pirate's Swoop is the daughter of Alanna, the renowned first lady knight of Tortall. However, Aly isn't interested in following in her mother's footsteps. Instead, she hungers for a different kind of adventure - the work of a spy, following in the footsteps of her father. When Aly is kidnapped by slavers while traveling off the coast of Tortall, she finds herself entering into a wager with a god, an unwitting piece in a larger picture of life in the Copper Isles, her unplanned new home. As she starts to ferret out more secrets, she realizes that the plot around her is many times larger than she imagined, and she forges unexpected alliances with soldiers, cooks, high-born ladies, servants, crows and even a god.

    Aly's wager is for just for the summer... but the more she sees of life in the Copper Isles, the more she realizes she might be in it for the long game...

  • In this Tortall tale, part 2 of the Daughter of the Lioness series, we get to see the conclusion to the story of Aly who was kidnapped and sold as a slave into the Copper Isles. The story is full of action, and is a great story of a strong central female character who is smart, independent, and a good leader. Without giving away the plot, I'll say that Aly finishes what she set out to do in the first book, and does it in a masterfully entertaining way.

    I was introduced to the works of Tamora Pierce with the Song of the Lioness books earlier this summer. Currently there are four series of books that occur in the world of Tortall, and I actually recommend that you read them in order. First, read the Song of the Lioness series, because that will introduce you to Tortall and the first woman to try for knighthood in over a century. Second, read the Immortals War series. The immortal creatures that "invade" Tortall remain around for the last two series, and this series introduces you to all the immortals. Future series take for granted, to some degree, that you already know about the different immortal species. Third, I recommend the Protector of the Small series. This is a different story of a girl who wants to become a knight, and occurs between 13-21 years after Alana's stories. Finally, I recommend you read the Daughter of the Lioness series. This is Aly's series, which Trickster's Queen is the second book of two in that series.

    It's true, you can read them out of order, and you will be able to understand the important parts of the story, but I read them out of order (Song of the Lioness, then Daughter of the Lioness, then Protector of the Small, then finally the Immortals. There were several parts that made much more sense after reading all the books that I missed the first go-through. But I liked these books enough that I look forward to reading them again in the proper order this time.

    A lot of people say these are great stories (for girls, specifically) because of their strong feminine heroines. I agree with that, and look forward to reading them with and/or discussing them with my children. They have more sexual content than most YA series that I've read. Most of the girls in the series become sexually active in their late teens. While these books are NOT explicit in any way (in my opinion) there are certainly discussions about the ramifications of pregnancy, and the societal expectation that noble women remain virgins until they marry. The girls use a form of birth control to prevent pregnancy, showing that they take this issue seriously. I point this out not because I was offended; I wasn't. I do want to warn parents, however, that if this type of discussion is uncomfortable for you, you may want to read the books before you give them to your kids to read. This would not prevent me from letting my kids (early teen and later, probably) read the books, but it would make me want to talk to them about what they read and see what they understood and how they felt about it, giving us an opportunity to have dialog about the topic, and giving me as a parent, an opportunity to help share my own beliefs and expectations on the subject with my kids.

    My only wish for this book was that there was a third (and a fourth, and....) book coming in the series. I think Aly is my favorite of all the Tortall heroines, and I would love to see more of her adventures.
