" My girls loved these books. I find them a bit tedious, and obvious, and exposition heavy. But cute and fun and fluffy. " said.

" Tamora Pierce's books helped shape my identity as a child. They are epic, enthralling, and empowering on so many levels. I love these books, and I will forever. " said.

" Eins meiner absoluten Lieblingsbücher, und jedes Mal wieder fesselnd *-* Ich liebe die Charaktere, die Idee, wie sich die Geschichte immer wieder entwickelt und neue Richtungen einschlägt... Dieses Buch (und auch alle anderen Reihen von Tamora Pierce) würde ich jedem empfehlen :)) " said.

" How have I never read this series before? Love the fiercely strong Alanna breaking glass ceilings that change the futures of women all across her land. Beautiful writing, girls and women can definitely see themselves in her desire to be both warrior, and woman and how she grows into these roles. " said.

" I LOVE this YA series - and really, everything I've read by Tamora Pierce. I re-read it (and all the others) once every few years. All of her stories are about strong girls who take their lives into their own hands and live (and love) by their own rules. Highly recommended for teenage readers. " said.

" Just reread this four-book series about the rad girl who grows up to be a knight/shaman, complete with magic and great dialogue and lots of life and Spirit and growing up business. So thankful to have stumbled across this some 25 years ago in my early teens. I really think it's shaped the person I am today. Two decades on, I still had a great time reading all four books. " said.

" Thoroughly enjoyed this series of a young girl who rebels against her society's strict segregation of male and female roles, then eventually comes "out" as a female warrior and has many adventures. She's not perfect - she's full of doubt and sometimes misses obvious cues (just like us), but she has a strong group of characters to journey with.She does sleep with every guy she is interested in - Pierce has some great comments on this part of Alanna's character - I suggest you look that up. " said.

" I remember the first book well, and I enjoyed reading it again so many years later. The rest of the books, however...I had close to zero recollection of reading them. Those didn’t stand up nearly as well upon rereading, either. The romance and angst is a bit corny to me today. As is the way the heroine Mary Sues her way through a lot of conflict. But, you know, younger me loved and needed corny storylines and Mary Sues back then. I’d still recommend the first book to young adult readers. " said.
