In My Mailbox #6

This is my 6th week participating in "In my mailbox" by The Siren Story (http://www.thestorysiren.com/) Here is what I got this week....

Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce
Tamora Pierce brings readers another Tortall adventure! Alianne is the teenage daughter of the famed Alanna, the first lady knight in Tortall. Young Aly follows in the quieter footsteps of her father, however, delighting in the art of spying. When she is captured and sold as a slave to an exiled royal family in the faraway Copper Islands, it is this skill that makes a difference in a world filled with political intrigue, murderous conspiracy, and warring gods. This is the first of two books featuring Alianne.

So my sister recommended this as one of her all-time-favorites. It's so not something I would normally read. Has anyone read this before?

Peirce's books are usually very entertaining, I'm sure this one will be just as good.

I love this one and Tricker's Queen. Nawat is even hotter than in the first one.

I'll go ahead and say that I really wasn't a fan of this book, I don't really know why. It took me forever to read and I think I just was never able to get into the characters.

I loved the boy though, I remember that. It's been a few years since I read it but I hope you like it!
