True Fantasy

by Lindsay, TheBookVlogger on Jun 27, 2008

I read these books at a very young age and it was the beginning of my love for fantasy. It was these books that inspired me to write my own. These book will always hold a very special place in my heart. They are the true meaning of fantasy. I remember spending hours in my room unable to walk away from the story created by Pierce. If these books seem interesting for you I would recommend reading the stories of Alanna in the Song of the Lioness series first. However, I read The Immortals series first and still loved all the books equally. You will be captivated, of that I can garantee.


Tortall opens up

by Ellyb on May 15, 2008

Tamora Pierce wrote "Wild Magic" as the first installment of her second set of books in the Tortall universe. It offers a perspective on Alanna's world from the other side, that of an illegitimate foreign peasant, who has a completely different magic about her which does not follow the formal rules of the "Gift" of Alanna and her type. Where Alanna was stubborn and brash, Daine is shy and...also stubborn, but with her own quiet way about it. The book also opens up the world of Tortall and its neighbors into a much more lush, diverse landscape. Whereas the Tortall of "Song of the Lioness" served as sort of a medieval stand-in (with magic), in "The Immortals" series, Pierce broadened her scope to other countries, while introducing truly original magical what-nots. By what-nots I refer to the cascade of immortal creatures flooding into the human world due to some sort of rip in the division between their world and that of the gods and chaos. This book is a marvelous follow up to her first quartet of books in that it firmly establishes Tortall as a complex, fascinating fantasy setting that can indeed evolve and show many different colors, with plenty of room to encompass all different kinds of characters and stories.
