Trickster's Choice (Aliane (Paperback))
Trickster's Choice (Aliane (Paperback))

5.0 out of 5 stars Pierce - still got it., 10 July 2006
First and foremost may I just write a small response to one of the above reviews (mentioning no names of course and in the nicest way possible) that this is a FANTASY novel. Yes, the heroine is attracted to a "crow-man" but then Aly is a completely different heroine to Pierce's former female protagonists.

Still, the most important thing to say here is that the books are fantastic! I was looking forward to them for so long (and at the age of 18 this it is one of the most embarrassing things - going into bookshops into the children's fantasy section) and I was NOT disappointed. Once again Pierce combines her extensive knowledge of medieval warfare, a witty writing style, subtle amounts of feminism and satisfying links back to her more 'famous' characters to provide us with another enjoyable perspective into the Tortallan world.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC FICTION, 3 Nov. 2005
I'm sorry, I know many of you out there probably think I'm an absolute nutter but hear me out. Thousands of Americans are loving Tamora Pierce and have done so for a good 10 years now. Why shouldn't the Brits get their say?! I first read The Woman Who Rides Like A Man (the third book in the series) at about the age of 9 or 10 and I fell in love with it. The expression, "nose stuck in a book", yep, that was me. With her breathtaking mix of gender issues, class issues, sexuality, romance, fighting, Pierce has woven a masterpiece that can only be congratulated. This quartet is a MUST for ANY person; man, woman, girl or boy, who wants to read more fantasy fiction. I just have one word - fanb****ytastic.
