About the Author: Tamora Pierce

Hey, folks I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single star ratings except I haven t How do I know I haven t Because I haven t read those books at all So before you go getting all hacked off at me for trashing your favorites, know that I ve written GoodReads to find out what s going on.I return to my regularly scheduled profile Though I would love to join groups, I m going to turn them all down I just don t have the time to take part, so please don t be offended if I don t join your group or accept an invitation I m not snooty I m just up to my eyeballs in work and appearances Also, don t be alarmed by the number of books I ve read When I get bored, I go through the different lists and rediscover books I ve read in the past It s a very evil way to use up time when I should be doing other things Obviously, I ve read a lot of books in 54 years I was born in South Connellsville, PA My mother wanted to name me Tamara but the nurse who filled out my birth certificate misspelled it as Tamora When I was 8 my family moved to California, where we lived for 6 years on both sides of the San Francisco peninsula.I started writing stories in 6th grade My interest in fantasy and science fiction began when I was introduced to The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien and so I started to write the kind of books that I was reading After my parents divorced, my mother took my sisters and me back to Pennsylvania in 1969 There I went to Albert Gallatin Senior High for 2 years and Uniontown Area Senior High School for my senior year.After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I wrote the book that became The Song of the Lioness fantasy quartet I sold some articles and 2 short stories and wrote reviews for a martial arts movie magazine At last the first book of the quartet, Alanna The First Adventure was published by Atheneum Books in 1983.Tim Liebe, who became my Spouse Creature, and I lived in New York City with assorted cats and two parakeets from 1982 2006 In 2006 we moved to Syracuse, New York, where we live now with assorted cats, a number of squirrels, birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and woodchucks visiting our very small yard As of 2011, I have 27 novels in print, one short story collection, one comic book arc White Tiger A Hero s Compulsion co written with Tim, and a short story anthology co editing credit There sto come, including a companion book to the Tortall verse So stay tuned

    As one of my childhood favourites, how could I not rate this 5 stars

  2. says:

    In retrospect, this is not a perfect novel, or series of novels, but when I think of who I wanted to be when I was ten years old, my answer was always Alanna And I still have a crush on George.

    After reading three paranormal urban fantasy romances in a row, you can only imagine how happy I was to read, not only something different, but something GOOD Good is the best description I can give of Alanna I wouldn t say it was great It gets pretty close to it, though Some parts of it seem unrealistic to me Alanna being so readily accepted by the boys etc Bu

    3.5 starsFinally read this gasp for our classics discussion Friday, 11 27 Our special guest will be the wonderful author Andrea K H st, and I ll post a link when it s live.I enjoyed this very much, but it felt like a first book, with rough transitions and rather unnuanced characterization But I do like Alanna and I love George , so I m looking forward to reading the re

    A great classic that mostly holds up today.Alanna s journey is a lot of fun She s brave, thoughtful, and eager to learn She works really hard, studies, and earns her way into the knighthood, all of which I found really refreshing.There were some uneven parts that all felt to me like the book had to be cut down from a longer version The beginning felt rushed, with a lack of des

    3.5 5 This was a super fun read, however it definitely reads like it was written for children which it was I probably would have ADORED this if I had read it as a kid, but as an adult it just wasn t quite up to my expectations The world and magic aren t very complex or explained in great detail, and we don t get to know the characters super well, but as a book written for kids it was pretty g

    Not really a review,a memory I can pinpoint the origin of these books with the most clarity I remember being handed the first one by a librarian, and begging my parents to buy it for me when I had to turn it back in I remember then begging the librarian to tell me the date the next one was expected to release that was the only way to find out, in those days I remember the look and location of each ne

    This is the first book in a series written for the younger end of the young adult readership, but which is still of interest to readers of any age.Alanna The First Adventure is a fantasy set in a place where magic is common and knights are trained in the ways of chivalry Alanna is fighting against the constraints of being female in such a society and having dressed herself as a boy she sets off to be trained
