"Pierce deftly weaves an unforgettable story...The humor is wicked, and the plot twists will keep the pages turning to the supremely satisfying end."
From the Publisher
Annotation Young would-be spy Aly leads a band of dark-skinned raka insurgents ready to overthrow their colonial rulers, the light-skinned luarin, in this sequel to TRICKSTER'S CHOICE. The resourceful and determined Aly is the daughter of mighty Alanna of the "Lioness Quartet" series, and projects an irreverently sassy personality while managing a simmering revolt aimed at fulfilling a prophecy that two half-raka sisters will rule the colony. Fortunately, a magical god provides assistance in this fast-paced allegorical adventure about race relations in a colonial milieu.
Editors Note Aly fails to foresee the dangers that await as she uses her magic to safeguard Dova and her younger siblings, despite knowing that her thirteen-year-old charge might be queen of the Copper Isles when the colonial rulers are defeated.
Editors Note 2 Aly's adventure continues. . . . No longer a slave, Alanna's daughter is now spying as part of an underground rebellion against the colonial rulers of the Copper Isles. The people in the rebellion believe that a prophecy in which a new queen will rise up to take the throne is about to be realized. Aly is busy keeping the potential teenage queen and her younger siblings safe, while also keeping her in the dark about her future. But Aly, who is usually adept at anticipating danger and changes, is in for a few nasty surprises.New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tamora Pierce captured the imagination of readers 20 years ago with Alanna: The First Adventure.
