Mmmhmm yep two book finished in less then a day and a drive to review.
The hand of the goddess is the second book in the Alanna novels. With the initial world and characters set up in the first book. The second book helps to evolve the world even more. Alanna has grow into being a full grown woman 18 years old. By the end of the book(tiny spoiler).
Reading this book Im reminded more and more why I love the Alanna series and Tamora Pierce series in general. There is of course many sad things that occur. But everything has its place and it leads to a very realistic writing.
Yep realisitic to me even with all the magic, old ones, gods, squires and pages. This is a fantasy book that feels real. And as you can tell, this is a series I CANT put down. The next two books in the series will have to wait because sleep calls.
5/5 Lioness sheilds
