This third book in the Song of the Lioness quartet continues Alanna's saga as she strikes out alone and discovers herself anew. A knight at last, Alanna of Trebond heads out to seek adventure in the desert of Tortall. Captured by desert tribesmen, she is forced to prove herself in a magical duel to the death. But her real challenge doesn't come until after she wins. As the first female shaman, Alanna must fight to change the ancient traditions of the stubborn desert tribes, for their own sake and for the sake of all Tortall.



"Actress Trini Alvarado gives a performance consistent with her previous narrations in this series. She projects a youthful, but strong character for Alanna; this is her outstanding strength." ( School Library Journal)

different but certainly not bad

The third part of Tamora Pierce's Alanna-series.
Alanna finally is a knight. Thus the story takes a totally new turn as she leaves the palace and rides alone with her man-at-arms Coram, until they encounter one of the desert tribes and get mingled up with their affaires.
As Alanna - the first female Bazhir Shaman ever - tries to convince 'her' tribe to get accustomed to quite a lot changes, she discovers another side of herself, too.
This book is certainly different from the first two parts, but this doesn't mean that it is less interessting to read. I really enjoyed reading about the grown-up Alanna, who still hasn't found herself yet.
Another book which isn't without tension, but has quite a lot funny moments in it, too. Romance plays its part, too.
