    1. This was a good book in some ways, but messed up enough that I probably won't look for more in this series. The writing style was fine - easy to read, nothing detracting from the story, etc. The plot was interesting and moved at a good pace (even if it was clearly part of a series and didn't really conclude, there was a nice ending). The world, while not overwhelmingly original, managed to stay far enough out of generic fantasy kingdom to be interesting (I really liked the crows).Unfortunately, [...]

    2. $1.99 Kindle sale, Nov. 19-30, 2017, for both this book and its sequel, Trickster's Queen. amazon/Tricksters-Cho. If you like YA fantasy, I highly recommend these! These two books are my very favorites of everything Tamora Pierce has written and I've read most of her books. These ones, though, are the only ones I've read multiple times.This duology follows 16 year old Alianne, the daughter of Alanna, who was the heroine of the SONG OF THE LIONESS series and is now a famous knight in the kingdom [...]

    3. Buddy read with Castle!And my first reread O.O the last time I read this was like 5 or so years ago. High school/college. Damn.----------Coming back into this book after 5+ years away, I had only a vague recollection of it. I remembered Aly, and the Balitang sisters, and the fact that Aly wanted to be a spy, but not much else. I think I spent half the book asking myself how in the hell Aly had been my least favorite MC up to this point, because she kicks ass. Also, Dove and Sarai. For noble-born [...]

    4. So I didn't think I would like this-- yeah, yeah, Tamora Pierce trying to make Alanna more interesting now that she's in middle age, suprise here's her kid who's just as whacky and awesome, OMGs. But seriously. She's teh awesome. And nothing like the Lioness books, which make them even better. While Alanna was all about her proving herself to be stronger and better than people originally assumed she was, the Trickster series is about a spy, born and bred; she lets people think she's dumb as rock [...]

    5. There's so much to like about this book, but there's a couple of glaring problems with it that I have to cover first. 1. This is the first time Tamora Pierce has given us a series that takes place almost exclusively outside of Tortall, but it still has a white protagonist. Don't get me wrong, I like Aly. I also understand that the Tortall books are essentially a sort of family drama. However, introducing a white protagonist whose goal is the liberation of a nation of people of color who have bee [...]

    6. 04 February 2009The Trickster's Choice AlianneKypriothNawatAlianne (Aly) Cooper is the daughter of George Cooper, His Majesty’s Spy-master, and Alanna (Lioness) Cooper, King’s Champion. She has as her god-parents a King and Queen and as her adopted uncle and aunt the most powerful Mage in the realm and a half-goddess enchantress. But what will happen when sixteen year old Aly sneaks away from her over-protective and powerful family? The adventure beginsCaptured by slave-traders (and with it [...]

    7. This book, and its sequel "Trickster's Queen," were given to me for my birthday by my dear friend Corey. I had recently been longing for some escapist media -- the world has felt a little too real recently, and I wanted a break. The books came highly recommended from Corey, who loved them for the ways that they are explicit tales of anti-colonial uprising, with cross-species romance and Gods-touched descriptions of obligations and duty. Needless to say, I ate this book up with a silver spoon. Re [...]

    8. My initial reaction: what happened to all the good, easy to pronounce names like Jon and George? I seriously dislike a majority of the names in this book. I know Tamora was probably going for something exotic with the whole Raka thing but it was just weird I had a hard time remembering who was who.As a girl power book, I didn't like it as much as Alanna. Aly seemed to get thing more dropped into her lap than actually fighting for what she wanted, which bothered me. Also, I know she wants to spy [...]

    9. Okay, I did like this. But, the fact that it took me over a month to read it knocked off a star in my overall review.I've heard so much about Tamora Pierce on this site, that I figured this would be a no brainer maybe it's me. Yeah, it's probably me. But, first of all, I found out that this is the first book in the SECOND series of books and that was turn off numero one. I don't like coming into a story if characters have already been introduced. It's like watching Problem Child 2 before Problem [...]

    10. I'll write a proper review very soon, I swear - but I'm on 10% battery at the library and so my time is running out! (Fingers crossed for home internet so so soon)Anyway first (rushed) impressions:Didn't fall as deeply in love with Aly as with Alanna or Kel Or Daine (or Daja, or Briar etc etc)She's still a Tamora Pierce character and therefore wonderfully written, fully fleshed out and likeable.Interesting that colonialism is tackled - and I think handled quite well for the most part, though uns [...]

    11. The best part about re-reading my favorite books/authors now that I actually am active on GR is going back and writing reviews on why they mean so much to me. And this will actually be my 200th review! Woo! ANYWAY—this series…this AUTHOR is the main reason why I love YA fantasy so damn much. I can remember it clearly actually, my best friend handed me this book when I was in 10th grade and told me how much she loved it and that I should give it a try. I did and spent the next few yea [...]

    12. I am a girl and I love fantasy and I love strong heroines. Do not ask me why it has taken me this long to read a Tamora Pierce book. Could it be that the first book of all of her series are mysteriously missing? (Seriously, this always flippin happens). But one day, I saw this and leapt on it before the magic fairies could whisk it away again (Not as seriously).In the Tortall world, this is an odd place for me to start. Most of everything has already happened. Although, it wasn't impossible to c [...]

    13. :/ I was hoping that I would enjoy this series better than Tamora Pierce's other Tortall books, which, while entertaining, didn't enamor me, mostly because they felt like they weren't original fantasy, and because Pierce seemed ham-handed with her messages. I put that off to the fact that many of the other Tortall novels were oriented towards younger readers (around 4th grade), and because the Alana books, in particular, are older, which would've made them ahead of their time as far as "feminist [...]

    14. This book is compulsively readable, with a plethora of female characters who aren't ever going to wait around for any man to rescue them. And that's awesome. I really liked having an action-adventure-fantasy book where the women are the dominant and active force. The political machinations are intriguing and at times unexpected, and the writing quality is top-notch.So why three stars?To quote another reviewer (Meg):"The plot basically hinges on a native [dark-skinned] people taking their land ba [...]

    15. Let me just say that as an Alanna fan I was already fairly certain when I started this novel that I would love Alianne. The novel starts off wonderfully and it is very obvious that Aly is Alanna and George's daughter. With George's mischievous nature and Alanna quick mind Aly is able to easily win your heart. After a short while of reading it is no longer your love for George and Alanna that fuels your wanting to learn more but instead your love for the intelligent and unique young woman who is [...]

    16. This book was a real delight! It is always a relief to read a book with a strong female character, one that is also believably feminine as well. There is humor, tragedy, betrayal, and good friends as well. There also is a trickster god who makes a deal with the main character, Aly, that if she keeps the girls to a family alive through the fall equinox that he will free her from being a slave and send her back home. Aly ends up freeing herself in a very honorable way. This is well worth recommend [...]

    17. 2.5I really like all the other Tortall series so I was primed to enjoy this one. Have to say I was very put off by the supremely self-assured manner of the main character. Never a moment's uncertainty or self-doubt, or much introspection at all. Not a good quality in a YA book, or really any story where you want to see some character development and growth. I'll be reading the sequel, but just because I'm a fan of Tortall, and they are very quick reads. Disappointed, to say the least, because I [...]

    18. Shit. Pure and utter. However, I'm reading the second book because I'm a masochist with a ridiculous desire to know whether the main character has pseudo-bestial sex with a dude who was formerly a crow.


    20. I just finished rereading this book because I'd basically forgotten everything about it and decided it was time to update myself on the world of Tortall.I changed my rating from a 4 star to a 3 star for a couple of reasons. First, the beginning moved slowly and made it hard for me to keep going. Honestly, the only reason I kept going was because I'd remembered the character Nawat being my favorite character and I wanted to remember why.I wasn't disappointed. Nawat is still my favorite character. [...]

    21. This wasn't as good as the first one, but still solid. For some reason, the court stuff dragged on a little more for me, just like the gradual chipping away at the power of the palace seemed slow-paced to a lot of Aly's spies. I wanted stuff to happen, for the grand revolution to take place! But I learned just like those spies that the moment has to be right to strike.I do love how when the spies of other group leaders find out that Aly is the kind of spy master, they protest not about how she's [...]

    22. با خوندن این کتاب فهمیدم که تازه چقدر برای دلم آلانا(یا به قول ترجمه اشتباه انتشارات هرمس الینا) تنگ شدهمن فقط11سالم بود که اولین جلد غرش ماده شیر رو خوندمآلانا از تریبوند اولین زن شوالیه تورتال که به شکل یه پسر وارد دربار میشه و در اخر پادشاهی رو نجات میده.دیگه خودتون حساب کنین [...]

    23. Read July 8, 2014---Read 2007: Of all the stories set in the realm of Tortall, this series featuring the famous Alana the Lioness's daughter is my absolute favorite. It almost feels like Pierce grew as an author when she wrote these two books, they read so much more intricately than the rest of her series. Ali is my ideal protagonist: trained as a spy at her fathers knee, she had a lot of skills, but no real goal in life. But all that changes when the trickster God decides to use her in his own [...]

    24. I’d heard good things about this book and its sequel, so despite not having read any Tamora Pierce for years, I decided to give it a try. I liked seeing a different view of the familiar old characters and Aly herself is marvellous. I never was a huge Alanna fan, so it was nice to hear Aly herself articulate some of the things I found frustrating myself. It reminded me in parts of The Thief, which is never a bad thing.

    25. I had a really hard time getting into this, but once I got past the slightly heavy-handed world building in the first quarter, I loved it! The last half was awesome, looking forward to the sequel.

    26. Tamora Pierce is the queen. She writes consistently good, female empowering, amazing, attention grabbing heroines and leaves you desperate for more (seriously, none of my libraries have sequel, which is terrible) The glimpses of other characters were FABULOUS, (Daine's baby, Alanna all grown up KEL KEL KEL KEL KEL sorry. Kel is my favourite) but it is this books marvellous characters, tense and tight plot, and amazing setting which really drew me in. Alianne is totally different to her mother. W [...]

    27. Aly, a kid with a very impressive family background (including god-parents/adopted family members). Spoilers ahead !When I first picked this book up, I didnt have much expectations. I had seen Ms Pierce's books in the bookshops/ebookshop/elibrary but I never really had an urge to read them. After reading so many other books (almost everything that caught my fancy), I came across this again and thought to myself, why not. I didn't regret this at all. I was thrown into a world where there are spie [...]

    28. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm/All Alianne wants to do is be a spy like her father, however her parents don’t agree. So, frustrated at them she sails down the coast only to be captured by pirates. She is sold as a slave to the Balitang family as a general worker, and makes a deal with the Trickster God, Kyprioth, if she keeps the Balitang children alive until autumn, he will convince her father to allow her be a spy, however this deal may be harder than it seems. Pi [...]

    29. I enjoyed this for all the reasons Connor told me I would: the best Pierce writing, the most convincing development of a relationship and main character, and most of all, the actual! discussion! of! racial! politics! And the convincing set-up of political unrest and rebellion is really great, too.I also am very fond of Aly and the rest of the characters (Dove! all the rebels!) and am of course ridiculously pleased with the glimpses we get of Daine/Numair!! and Alanna/George. It's actually really [...]

    30. If you've a story, make sure it's a whole one, with details close to hand. It's the difference between a good lie and getting caught.Honestly, I did not remember this one as well as I thought I did - and I think I enjoyed it more than I did the first read through. I loved Aly as a protagonist, very pragmatic and cunning, balanced with a sense of fun - and I loved Nawat, who is basically the most adorable character. I also enjoyed that this book largely takes place outside of Tortall, and not as [...]
