In the Hand of the Goddess – Tamora Pierce

Song of the Lioness: Book 2

Disguised as a boy, Alanna of Trebond becomes a squire — to none other than the prince of the realm. But Prince Jonathan is much more to Alanna; he is her ally, her best friend, and one of the few who knows that she’s really a girl. Now it will take all of Alanna’s awesome skill, strength, and growing magical powers to protect him from the mysterious evil sorcerer who is bent on his destruction–and hers!

Here continues the story of Alanna, a young woman bound for glory who is willing to fight against enormous odds for what she believes in.

The characters in this book are all really well written.  Alanna is such a strong character!  I really like Jonathan and George and the other characters around Alanna, too, and Duke Roger is creepily evil in this book.  My favorite though, has to be her cat.  He’s definitely not just what he seems.   – Jessica, Teen Librarian
