The Woman Who Rides Like a Man – Tamora Pierce

the woman who rides like a man

Song of the Lioness: Book 3

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.

What I like about this series is that not only does Alanna do one great and unexpected thing as a woman, becoming a knight, but she also just keeps on doing more and more amazing things!  She’s the ultimate in female role models!   – Jessica, Teen Librarian

    I love all of Tamora Pierce’s books. She’s such a fantastic author, and all of her books tie together very well.

    I wonder if you’d be willing to do a review on my noveling blog, Uninvoked. It just moved to its own domain and I’ve been working really hard to make it nice. No pressure of course. ^^ *hides her teen librarian cage*
