Alanna of Trebond is no ordinary girl: her dream is to become a knight. So she disguises herself as a boy and begins training at the palace of King Roald. Alanna quickly finds out that the road to knighthood is not an easy one, but her skills and stubbornness help her become friends with Prince Jonathan and his followers. At the same time, Alanna makes an enemy of the prince's uncle, the overly charming Duke Roger. Here begins Alanna's first adventure, one that will lead not only to fulfillment of her dreams but to a magical destiny that will make her a legend.



"A lively, fascinating tale." ( Booklist)
"Pairing [Trini] Alvarado's vocal talents with [Tamora] Pierce's well written and engaging story makes this a quality audiobook worthy of inclusion in any audio collection." ( School Library Journal)

Amazing beginning of an even more amazing story

This book is the first of a four part story. I love Tamora Pierce's books and considering that this one is the first she ever wrote, it's really great. I've read the books at least five times (in english as well as in german) and was thrilled when I realised that they are also available as audio books. I was even more thrilled about the fact that the audio books are unabridged.
My expectations for this audio book haven't been disappointed. Trini Alvarado reads wonderful and has the ability the give each person its own, specific voice. She understands it also to read the story in a passionate way, so it doesn't seem exaggerated but contains feelings.
Therefore even someone who loves the books as I do will certainly not be disappointed by this audio book - as unfortunately too often happens - and listen to it enthusiastically, as will all who don't know the story yet.
It's most certainly worth listening to.

One of my favorite children's books...

Read well and with love. Alanna was my role model when growing up, and I am still impressed by this rare example of a female character that breaks so many trite conventions.
