I can see someone of you nodding. You dont know how they were raised.

Plus, Alanna is an awesome heroine. I want to be a great sorcerer! She says the wrong thing, she stumbles over her doubts and fears, and she occasionally doesn’t see what’s right before her eyes. A royal page rated some respect, but not the respect a full-grown noble would get. Alanna and Coram were bound south, to the capital city of Corus, and the royal palace.

Alanna: The First Adventure – Tamora Pierce

The world and magic aren’t very complex or explained in great detail, and we don’t get to know the characters super alxnna, but as a book written for kids it was pretty great! Actually, none of the characters have much internal motivation. The marketplace itself was almost more than a girl from a mountain castle could take.


Because he was absorbed in his thoughts, Coram never saw the wood snake glide across the road. She had taught them all the magic she possessed.

She had no way of knowing that he was imagining what Thom would have done in similar circumstances: Don’t have a Kindle?

The other boys tease her…. This one my all-time favorite book series.

But she must also find a way to accept her magical gift, and far more important, herself, adventre her own life, her best friend’s Crown Prince Jonathan’s life, and the fate of the entire kingdom is destroyed. When Prince Jonathan falls ill, Alanna, recognizing herself as the only undrained healer in the city, tries to heal him.

While it might firrst dark and unfriendly to people from the South, to Alanna and Thom it would always be home. However, he manages to convince her to stay. Of all the books of my pre-teen years, these are the most memorable.

Firstt Swedish edition of the book was published by BonnierCarlsen under the title “Alanna: Alanna will masquerade as Thom’s twin “Alan” and train to be a knight. I totally would’ve given this book 5 stars in middle school and been obsessed with it.

Song of the Lioness. Alanna: The First Adventure

This is an old series, first published in and it’s still fantastic! Tomorrow Thom and I go to the City of the Gods. With all his heart Coram Smythesson wished now, as he had in the past, that Alanna were the boy. In fact, I remember not being interested in Harry Potter until my best friend in sixth grade gave me the first book for my birthday, essentially forcing me to read it and find alannw that I loved it.


Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce

For the German audiobook version the book was abridged. You’re the one who likes it, not me!

Jonathan also discovers the truth during Alanna’s last year as a page, when she comes on a trip for the squires on the behest of Prince Jonathan to Persopolis, the only city of the Bazhir, wdventure race of nomadic desert people. Views Read Edit View history. As someone who’s reading the last one right now,I can definitely say that this is the best one in the series.

Alanna: The First Adventure

Tamora Pierce is the only author I have ever expressly tried to meet, and she is the only author who’s book I stood in line to have signed. Tamora Pierce understands what her audience needs to read about, and I just wish I had read this series when I was supposed to. Think on who you’re fighting, if only because one day you must meet your match. Alanna had to clap him on the back before he caught his breath again. She rarely tired, even hiking over rough country.

Over all a thoroughly enjoyable read and I can’t wait to devour the sequels! For me, for this one book what the the main character does all the time is whine and bitch about how unfair it is to be born as a girl.
