It's a pretty easy read, and Alanna(for me) is an enjoyable character. I really love everything about this book. But, WHY does EVERY good book has to be ruined by so many sex scenes? So, if you don't mind that, or you don't mind skipping over it- I'd say, read it, it'll be worth your while.

I think you should read this book, before you let your child read it. i read this book once, when i was youger. You see there's a little romantic relationship, between two of the characters. After a little bit of kissing, and such. One of the characters runs off, then changes her mind. It does not go in to it, but it does plant the idea in your childs head. It does this in all of the books after this. This is just my opinion. But I know, I would not let my childern read this book. They would at least have to be 16.

My 8 year old daughter started with the Protector of the Small series and loved it. I too was quite impressed: It was good fantasy writing that presented a young woman facing and overcoming both internal and external obstacles and growing in the process. My daughter then began (and has now finished) the Lioness Quartet. It too (particularly Book One) is generally well-written and exciting. However, by Book Two (In the Hand of the Goddess), the series degenerates somewhat into a combination martial arts and romance novel with less character development and some unnecessary bed hopping. Alanna is, in some respects, quite intelligent in her choice of romantic partners, but she seems extremely quick to progress from first hug to bedding down. Parents should decide whether they believe their children are ready for this aspect of the series and whether they are ready to discuss it with their children. My daughter and I were comfortable with the books, but I would be hesitant to recommend the Lioness Series without discussing it with the parents first.
