I started reading this book with no expectations, and was very surprised. The story line is well thought out, and the characters are well developed. The ideas are original, and I found myself laughing out loud at the Character Nawat more than once. My only complaint is that the names were a little hard to keep track of, however, Pierce supplies a handy list of phrase and character descriptions in the back of the book. Good idea.

After reading Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce, I have come to the conclusion that this book isn't necessarily a disaster, but it isn't good, either. Something that is good about this book is that it has a strong heroine that isn't weak and helpless, like the female characters that you can come across in some fantasy books. Also the places and customs in the book are really believable. Lastly, the plot of the book is, over all, well developed and mostly interesting. However, there are a number of things in this book that keep me from recommending it. First of all, the book is polytheistic. There are multiple gods and talk of 'immortals' which may be a little offensive to some people's faith. Next, there is a LOT of political turmoil that can get boring at times. Also, there are so many characters introduced in the book that it got confusing. Last of all, between the politics, the extensive geography that the book was set in and the many characters, I had to flip back to get my bearings often. So all in all, there were just to many bad things about this book than good for me to recommend it.

    sorry

    ok, um, this book was NOT the best in tamora pierce's tortall series.For one thing,it was like Aly's ''masters'' were so good and perfect, but,um slavery is NOT good, and it was not about Tortall at all, which I find makes some of these books great.Sorry miss pierce, but I think the lioness series were WAYYY better than these books.And why does Aly's mom seem like some old hermit who hates children? Plus, George is like some big daddy hero who loves Aly more than her mom . sorry miss pierce! and also there were WAY too many characters!!
