Wild Magic | Tamora Pierce
56 posts | 130 read | 42 to read
Thirteen-year-old DaIne has always had a knack with animals, but it's not until she's forced to leave home that she realizes it's more than a knack -- it's magic. With this wild magic, not only can Daine speak to animals, but also she can make them obey her. Daine takes a job handling horses for the Queen's Riders, where she meets the master mage Numair and becomes his student. Under Numair's guidance, Daine explores the scope of her magic. But she begins to sense other beings too: immortals. These bloodthirsty monsters have been imprisoned in the Divine Realms for the past four hundred years, but now someone has broken the barrier. It's up to Daine and her friends to defend their world from an immortal attack.

Amazing enough for me to revisit the whole quartet more than two more times as an adult! It starts off with horses but trust me, there‘s far more to Tortall than just horses.

I think I love Daine even more than Allana. Her wildness & vulnerability, her love & connection to the world, esp the animals, around her, & just the way she never hesitates to stand up for others makes her amazing in my eyes. I also loved watching her try to figure out the people around her-like her I‘m often just befuddled at the ways people behave. I‘m looking forward to the next installment of her story.

For all that it‘s an oldy, it is a goody too. Especially since i am chockfull of nostalgia. After starting and finishing Tempests and Slaughter, I‘ve had a hankering for Tamora Pierce‘s books. Here‘s my first all finished! Now to start Wolf-Speaker! 😄

This is one of my favorite Pierce books. The main character is fiesty and passionate, but also has a lot to learn about who she is and what she can do. Also, this form of magic - Wild Magic - is one of my favorite renderings of what a world with magic could be like.

Tamora Pierce has written a stunning Fantasy novel and created a world full of strong female characters with grown up relationships. I realise this was first published some time ago and I‘m sorry it had passed me by, but now I‘m truly smitten and will be reading more of this series.

“Hedgehogs woke Daine as they wriggled into her bedroll, shaking in terror. It wasn‘t the controlled fear they felt around hunters, but the wild panic that made them run before a fire. She eased out of the covers. ‘It‘s all right,‘ she whispered. ‘Stay here.‘”.....I‘m loving the writing, the world building is so good and I‘m only at chapter 3....

The downside of being at work is that I don‘t have access to my own books for any #24in48 challenges, but I do work in a library, soooo...

I loved Tamora Pierce‘s Tortall books as a kid, and they‘re probably why I‘m still an avid fantasy reader today. I‘m pretty sure all of mine are in boxes somewhere in my Dad‘s house, but I also broke down and bought the kindle versions a few years ago.

Side note: This copy has been in my library since 1994.

Last night at the #fiercefriday event I met one of my all time favorite authors, Tamora Pierce. This woman helped solidify my love of reading growing up as well as my love for fantasy novels. She has always written books about powerful, intelligent women and has been an inspiration for me for years. I'm so grateful to have met her.

Me: Ugh, I'm just not connecting with any YA fantasy books these days. Maybe I've finally outgrown this genre, ten years after my teens ended

Also me: *rereads an entire YA fantasy series in one weekend*

Tamora Pierce's newest book about Numair made me want to revisit this earlier series. Wild Magic is one of those books I've read a million times, but I think this might be only my second time through the rest of the series. Good to be back!

MarriedtoMrT Emperor Mage is my favorite of the series. I love that book so much. 2y
emtobiasz Emperor Mage was so much more fulfilling after reading the new book about Numair! Have you read it yet @MarriedtoMrT ? 2y
MarriedtoMrT @emtobiasz Not yet. I promised myself I would read them in pub order and I‘ve gotten stuck in Kel‘s quartet. One more to go before I move to the Trickster duet. 2y
emtobiasz @MarriedtoMrT Fair enough. A lot of them have spoilers for books written previously, when you read them out of order, but I don't think skipping ahead to Numair's would ruin anything. I found the new one slow but would have enjoyed it more if the Immortals books had been fresh in my mind instead of 15+ years old, I think. 2y
