Read full description of the books:
In this four volume omnibus edition from the Science Fiction Book Club, we are treated to the story of young Daine, the wild magic that helps her communicate with all animals, and the adventures she has while learning about herself and the life she is to lead.
This was not quite as compelling as Song of the Lioness, but of course the idea of being able to talk easily with any animal, to really understand them and know what they were feeling is the major appeal here. Daine had just as much to prove to and about herself as Alanna had in the other series, she simply proved it in a different way.
The first book (Wild Magic) was my favorite, since it dealt more with Daine herself and the efforts she made to become who she was supposed to be. In the other three, while Daine is still exploring her new life, she is drawn into the politics and diplomacies of the Tortall kingdom. The fourth book (The Realms Of The Gods) was actually my least favorite. At least the darkings helped bring a few touches of lightness and humor to an otherwise fairly gruesome story.
This was my second time reading this book, but unlike other reviewers I had not read Tamora Pierce when it was age-appropriate for me to do so. Mainly because the author is only about three years older than I am. I discovered her through the SFBC, and I am glad I did because I enjoy her world and her messages very much.
I am about to start the final omnibus I have of her work, Protector of the Small. I've read that once before also, but I have just a few vague memories of the story. Time to back away from the keyboard and return to Tortall to See What Happens Next!

Read information about the authorHey, folks! I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single-star ratings--except I haven't. How do I know I haven't? Because I haven't read those books at all. So before you go getting all hacked off at me for trashing your favorites, know that I've written GoodReads to find out what's going on.
I return to my regularly scheduled profile:
Though I would love to join groups, I'm going to turn them all down. I just don't have the time to take part, so please don't be offended if I don't join your group or accept an invitation. I'm not snooty--I'm just up to my eyeballs in work and appearances!
Also, don't be alarmed by the number of books I've read. When I get bored, I go through the different lists and rediscover books I've read in the past. It's a very evil way to use up time when I should be doing other things. Obviously, I've read a lot of books in 54 years!
I was born in South Connellsville, PA. My mother wanted to name me "Tamara" but the nurse who filled out my birth certificate misspelled it as "Tamora". When I was 8 my family moved to California, where we lived for 6 years on both sides of the San Francisco peninsula.
I started writing stories in 6th grade. My interest in fantasy and science fiction began when I was introduced to ‘The Lord of the Rings’ by J. R. R. Tolkien and so I started to write the kind of books that I was reading. After my parents divorced, my mother took my sisters and me back to Pennsylvania in 1969. There I went to Albert Gallatin Senior High for 2 years and Uniontown Area Senior High School for my senior year.
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I wrote the book that became The Song of the Lioness fantasy quartet. I sold some articles and 2 short stories and wrote reviews for a martial arts movie magazine. At last the first book of the quartet, Alanna: The First Adventure was published by Atheneum Books in 1983.
Tim Liebe, who became my Spouse-Creature, and I lived in New York City with assorted cats and two parakeets from 1982 - 2006. In 2006 we moved to Syracuse, New York, where we live now with assorted cats, a number of squirrels, birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and woodchucks visiting our very small yard. As of 2011, I have 27 novels in print, one short story collection, one comic book arc ("White Tiger: A Hero's Compulsion") co-written with Tim, and a short story anthology co-editing credit. There's more to come, including a companion book to the Tortall `verse. So stay tuned!
