This is another series that I’ve read so many times that the covers are falling off. Beginning with Alanna, it follows Alanna of Trebond, a young girl who disguises herself as her twin brother in order to become a knight. Full of friends and enemies, swordplay and sorcery, talking animals and adventures, this quartet is not only awesome in it’s own right, it launches a whole new world with other books and stories. For me, Alanna is the ultimate heroine.
Experience the magic and adventure of the complete Song of the Lioness quartet, now available in a collectible boxed set with new cover art and afterwords from acclaimed author of this beloved fantasy series, Tamora Pierce.
Fearless, bold, athletic, magical. Young Alanna of Trebond is all of these things, and more than anything else, she has always craved the adventure and daring allowed only to boys. So she and her twin brother, Thom, switch places: Thom heads for the convent to become a sorcerer, and Alanna—pretending to be a boy—is off to the castle of King Roald to begin her journey to knighthood.
Filled with swords and sorcery, exploits and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna’s quest for knighthood launches the epic adventures of Tortall’s heroes.
This paperbook boxed set of the beloved Song of the Lioness quartet includes original afterwords from Tamora Pierce for each book in the collection: Alanna, In the Hand of the Goddess, The Woman Who Rides Like a Man, and Lioness Rampant.
