This series is great for the whole family. I started reading them in Year 8 and I'm still reading them now in my second year at Durham university, and I still find them brilliant and I always find new bits to the story that I hadn't noticed before.
Enjoy the books...
It's set in the age when knights and things were around but it also has really cool things like magic and sorcerers. Each person who has the Gift (magic) has a different colour magic (completely irrelevant but hey). Alanna and Thom are twins, girl and boy, and when they are eleven Lord Alan, their father sends Alanna to a convent and Thom to a place where he can learn to become a knight. But Alanna doesn't want to go to the convent and Thom would rather learn magic. So they switch places, Alanna pretending to be a boy. You don't hear much about Thom really, it is all about Alanna posing as a boy at the palace. It sounds lame, but seriously, it isn't. :)
It is really well written, but with long chapters. :/ I just couldn't put it down!
At the age of ten,Alanna goes to the palace disguised as a boy whereas her brother goes off to convent to become a sorcerer.In the four books you follow Alanna as she goes through the distressing ordeal of puberty,the agonising torture of her lessons and the ever so romantic tales of herself,George the thief and Prince Jonathan [Personally I think Jon is the best for her! ;)].
An action packed quartet with ordinary womens' problems,butt-kicking and romance.I'd recommend this to older kids looking for a brilliant read full of fantasy and twists.
