The Immortals: Book 1
Young Daine’s knack with horses gets her a job helping the royal horsemistress drive a herd of ponies to Tortall. Soon it becomes clear that Daine’s talent, as much as she struggles to hide it, is downright magical. Horses and other animals not only obey, but listen to her words.
Daine, though, will have to learn to trust humans before she can come to terms with her powers, her past, and herself.
I was really excited when Pierce chose to write a new series following the Song of the Lionness quartet. Daine is another girl who, though she has seen some horrible things, is still a strong character. Her ability to talk to animals is really interesting and I can’t wait to see where she ends up at the end of the series. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
