Song of the Lioness: Book 4
At last, Alanna of Trebond has become the first female knight errant in Tortall. She sets out on an impossible quest to find the Dominion Jewel, a legendary gem that, in the right hands, has limitless power for good. But while she searches for the one thing that can save her war-torn country, her nemesis returns from the dead and begins to wreak havoc.
Only Alanna has the power to prevent Tortall’s utter destruction… In this final verse of the Song of the Lioness quartet, Alanna grows from heroine into legend.
This was a very satisfying book. Alanna gets into the worst predicament she’s been in yet. She becomes a legend, she has amazing adventures, and she finally ends up with the love of her life. You couldn’t ask for more. Recommended, but start with Alanna: The First Adventure. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
