"You can't do anything from a grave, Liam"
The final instalment of the Song of the Lioness series is a fitting finale. Alanna gets a new and temporary love interest who also manages to impart some new fighting skills. Her quest for a mysterious gem proves to be an action packed one. An old enemy is back thanks to her meddling brother. All this and more drama jam packed into a measly 300 or so pages.
Will Alanna find a man who lets her be the warrior woman she is? Will her homeland be saved? I'm not about to tell you, you will have to have a read for yourself. I just wish there was more. I am reassured that there are plenty of other Tamora Pierce stories for me to explore.
5 out of 5 lionesses run rampant.
